Selena Gomez‘s heart wants what it wants — and that’s to avoid getting too swept up in emotion on stage!
The pop star’s Revival tour is underway and she could NOT be more excited to perform hits from her latest album — along with a few classics from her old days with The Scene!
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, the 23-year-old revealed that audiences can expect to hear updated versions of her music, teasing:
“For all of my songs, I’ve got my full band, and everybody is just bringing a different flavor to everything that we’ve done. All the songs have their own charms to them. None of it really sounds like the record. Hands to Myself definitely changed the most.”
While fans can expect to enjoy Selly’s hits new and old, the songstress confirmed there’s one song she DEFINITELY won’t be performing — the Justin Bieber-inspired ballad The Heart Wants What It Wants!
“There are things that I can’t do. I won’t be performing this on this tour because I don’t want to. It’s like when you smell a scent and it takes you back to a place that maybe wasn’t the best place. That stuff is a little bit more difficult.”
Well, that makes sense. After all, who wants to relive that intense emotion every night while performing for thousands of fans?
According to Selly’s rep, proceeds from each ticket sold will go to the Alliance for Lupus Research, a national voluntary health organization on a mission to find better treatments for and prevent the autoimmune disease.
As for the concert itself, the pop star said she’s “excited” for fans to hear the new version of Come and Get It that she will perform during the concert — but noted the show will mainly focus on her latest album. She said:
“We just sprinkled in only three old songs, so it’s just the new material, which is how I wanted it to be. We may add in a few things as well, surprise-wise, but we’ll figure it out.”
Could she be hitting at a surprise stage cameos by her celeb-friends like Taylor Swift!? We can only hope so!
Either way, we cannot wait for Selena’s Revivaltour!
Unless you have a butt-load of money, a parent who works as a high-powered Hollywood agent or you’re the 103rd caller on Q103.3 StinkMan and the Burger morning show’s ticket bonanza giveaway, there is a good chance you’ll never attend a high-profile celeb meet-and-greet.
They’re just too expensive and too rare. Sure, you may run into someone like Taylor Swift or Adele on the street, but let’s be real, the closest you’ll come to a celebrity is being in the nosebleed section of a stadium he or she is performing in.
Selena Gomez has a way of fighting against this reality by hosting massive, public meet-and-greets outside of concert venues. Sure, you could still drop an extra $566 to meet her in person, but Gomez’s dedication to bringing the whole Selena experience to a wider base of fans has become a staple on her tour.
Unfortunately, that may be coming to an end, according to an Instagram post after the Calgary stop on her tour.
Gomez captioned the post,
Calgary, Canada ALSO: meeting you guys after my shows has been such a highlight.. but because your safety is priority and most important if we can’t keep them contained I’ll have to stop. I’ll do it for as long as I can, but you matter most. Love you guys. Can’t wait to see you Saskatoon
So, that ends that.Thanks a lot, CANADA. I don’t know what you did to creep out Selena’s security team, but you really gravy’d the poutine (the Canadian version of “screwed the pooch”) for the rest of us.
Let’s not harp on that, though. Let’s just take a minute to pay tribute to how cool her meet-and-greets were when they were around.
Oh, Canada. Our home and native land. (Edmonton)
True patriot love in all thy sons command. (Vancouver)
With glowing hearts, we see thee rise. (Seattle)
The true north, strong and free! (San Jose)
In Selena’s defense, canceling meet-and-greets isn’t exactly out of the ordinary, and a certain ex-lover of hers kind of pulled this same exact move a few months ago with a near-identical Instagram post.
His reasoning for canceling was a little bit different, though. He wrote,
Love u guys.. I’m going to be canceling my meet and greets. I enjoy meeting such incredible people but I end up feeling so drained and filled with so much of other people’s spiritual energy that I end up so drained and unhappy.. Want to make people smile and happy but not at my expense and I always leave feeling mentally and emotionally exhausted to the point of depression
The common thread here seems to be performers going above and beyond may be cool in theory but really creates some major logistical issues.
Looks like we’ll all just have to go back to hoping we win big on “StinkMan and The Burger” morning ticket bonanza giveaway.
