American Music Awards 2014: Selena Gomez Stuns On The Red Carpet

Justin Bieber once described Selena Gomez as “the most elegant princess in the world” and it’s hard to disagree with his assessment given her stunning appearance at the American Music Awards in Los Angeles tonight (November 23). She oozed glamor in a figure-hugging, floor-length, backless black gown. (What a mouthful!) The 22-year-old added a flash of drama/color by wearing chunky gold earrings and bracelets.

Sel will perform new single “The Heart Wants What It Wants” for the very first time during the show. She already admitted to being nervous about singing the very personal song on Instagram but the former teen queen will, no doubt, get moral support from friends Taylor Swift and Ellie Goulding. The Rock Mafia-produced break-up anthem is the first (and probably only given that her contract with Disney is up) single from her greatest hits compilation For You (due November 24). More »

Taylor Swift is in Los Angeles for the American Music Awards on Sunday night (rumor is she’s opening the show) and took the opportunity to hang out with occasional BFF Selena Gomez and British electro-pop diva Ellie Goulding. They decided to have a girls night out and hit up The 1975‘s gig at the Hollywood Palladium. As expected, they all documented the get-together on their various Instagram accounts.

The “Blank Space” hitmaker posted a collage of photos as well as a video of her and Selena singing along to the band’s 2013 hit “The City”. Ellie also got in on the act, sharing a pic of the trio (above) on her Instagram. It’s going to be a busy couple of months for the pop princesses. Taylor is in full promo mode for chart-busting LP 1989, while Sel is gearing up to release her greatest hits package For You. As for the Brit? Her new album drops early next year.

Selena Gomez is wrapping up her time at HWR with a greatest hits compilation called 'For You'.

Selena Gomez embraces her sexy side on “Do It” — the second new song on greatest hits compilation For You. (The first, of course, being rising hit “The Heart Wants What It Wants”). Another Rock Mafia production, the slinky bedroom anthem is cute and catchy bop that proves the 22-year-old is all grown up. “Sitting on my bed with just your t-shirt on,” Sel coos before reaching the bubbly chorus: “If I had a choice, if I had my way, boy you know we’d do it every single day.”

Well, then! It’s definitely a change of pace from the compilation’s surprisingly raw and gritty lead single but “Do It” is pretty irresistible and deserves its spot on For You. Selena will perform “The Heart Wants What It Wants” for the first time on Sunday night’s (November 23) American Music Awards. The track is steadily gaining momentum on radio and iTunes and is shaping up to be one of the biggest hits of her career. Listen to her new song after the jump. More »

Sia, Katy Perry, Selena Gomez And More Lend Support To ‘Be The Ball’ Kickstarter: Watch

We all know Sia can swing from a chandelier, but did you know she’s also pretty good with a golf club too?

Filmmaker Erik Anders Lang, Sia’s husband, is working on an ambitious new project called Be The Ball, a film that traces the origins of golf while also exploring the various mental techniques one can use to enhance their game. Or, as he describes it: “The first documentary about golf and spirituality…ever.”

To fund the film, Erik has started a Kickstarter, and he’s calling on a few of his famous pop friends — including Selena Gomez, Katy Perry, Joe Jonas and, oh yes, his wife as well — to help him rally support. Check out the hilarious celeb-filled Kickstarter video, and find out how Sia is involved with the campaign after the jump. More »

Justin Bieber unfollowed Selena Gomez on Instagram. Here are 10 pics that prove it's his loss.

Selena Gomez shocked a lot of people when she returned to the music after an extended break with gritty break-up anthem “The Heart Wants What It Wants”. The Rock Mafia-produced anthem proved to be an instant success — selling 100,000+ downloads in its first four days of release. That was enough to debut at number 25 on the Billboard Hot 100. Not bad for a deeply personal song that was dropped with no forewarning or promotion.

The 22-year-old will perform the bad boyfriend-referencing anthem for the first time at the American Music Awards on November 23. Sel has been busy preparing for the hit’s live debut and posted a pic from rehearsals on Instagram this afternoon (November 17). “Rehearsing for the AMAs,” she wrote told her 17.7 million followers (of whom Justin Bieber is no longer one). “Wasn’t prepared for how nervous Id be, I mean I’ve done this before. But now it’s just me. All of me.” See Selena’s Insta update after the jump. More »

Justin Bieber Unfollowed Selena Gomez On Instagram: 10 Adorable Pics That Prove It’s His Loss

Justin Bieber did the unthinkable by today (November 12) by unfollowing Selena Gomez on Instagram. That’s the millennial equivalent of throwing your ex’s belongings on the street or letting the air out of their tires. In other words, R.I.P. Jelena. I guess Cody Simpson‘s duet partner really didn’t like the sentiment of Sel’s emotionally confronting new single.

Well, it’s Justin’s loss. As anyone with a phone knows, the For You diva’s Instagram is one of the world’s seven wonders with pic after pic of absolute perfection. I’ve pull together 10 of the 22-year-old’s cutest pics to remind the “Confident” hitmaker exactly what he’s missing. In other Selena news, “The Heart Wants What It Wants” debuted at number 25 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week with 100,000+ downloads sold in its first four days of release. More »

Selena Gomez’s “The Heart Wants What It Wants” Gets Off To A Blockbuster Start On Radio & YouTube

Don't Cry

Selena Gomez took everyone by surprise with new single “The Heart Wants What It Wants”. The Rock Mafia-produced slow jam dropped with little warning yesterday (November 6) and shot straight to number two on iTunes. (Only One Direction‘s latest “Ready To Run” could block it from the top spot). Pretty impressive for a raw ballad about a destructive relationship but it got off to an even better start on radio.

According to Mediabase, “The Heart Wants What It Wants” reportedly reached an audience of 10.061 million people on its first day at radio. Doesn’t sound too impressive? To put things into perspective, Miley Cyrus“Wrecking Ball” was heard by six million folks on debut. The Justin Bieber-referencing anthem also racked up five million+ YouTube views in its first 24 hours. Selena’s greatest hits album For You, which completes her stint at Hollywood Records, drops November 24. More »

Selena Gomez Unveils Her Adorable ‘For You’ Album Cover, Reveals More Details About The Tracklist

Christmas came early for Selenators today (November 6) when their holy queen unexpectedly premiered new single “Heart Wants What It Wants” and then dropped the classy, black-and-white video. Selena Gomez now reveals the contemplative cover of greatest hits collection For You and sheds a little more light on the album’s already announced tracklist.

For starters, we now have the full songwriting credits for “Heart Wants What It Wants”. The Justin Bieber-referencing mid-tempo ballad was penned by Sel (with a little help from Rock Mafia and David Jost). Also, fans were also wondering about the somewhat random inclusion of Stars Dance album track “Forget Forever”. It turns out it’s a brand new remix, so I guess I can overlook the hurtful omission of “Hit The Lights”! More »

Selena Gomez, Imagine Dragons And Garth Brooks To Perform At 2014 American Music Awards
