KISS108 recently caught up with Selena Gomez during the Jingle Ball 2010 tour and was able to get some insight into what life is like for her.
While it might be hard for some people to believe, Selena says she always worries about being recognized when on tour with other big name artists and always wonders if people are going to know who she is and if they’ll recognize the songs she sings. She also says that the best thing about her career is being able to perform, remembering the times when she was unable to get tickets to Jingle Ball and now gets to experience the thrill of actually performing at the show.
When asked if the internet is a concern for people in the public eye these days, Selena commented that the Web is a constant presence and it’s important to always be careful and act responsibly because she owes it to her fans and that people also need to understand it’s a very hard business, especially for kids who are growing up in the spotlight while figuring out what they like and don’t like.
The interview wasn’t all business, though. Selena took part in a word association game that provided a few insightful answers. She considers Taylor Swift to be passionate and inspirational, and of course ‘hair’ was the word that popped to mind when it came to Justin Bieber. Christmas is a time for family and she plans to spend the holiday at home in Texas where she plans to turn off her cell and just disconnect for a little while.
