Selena Gomez Posts American Music Awards Rehearsal Pic: “Wasn’t Prepared For How Nervous I’d Be”
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.
