Teen starlet Selena Gomez called into “On Air With Ryan Seacrest” on Wednesday to chat about her new album, going on tour, her movie “Monte Carlo,” and Justin Bieber.

We all remember where we were iconic news stories broke such as the death of Michael Jackson or when you first heard that Britney Spears had shaved her head.

Selena tells us where she heard the breaking news that boyfriend, Justin Bieber had been “attacked” outside Macy’s in New York.

“I was working when I found out. Because I found out through people, I guess it went everywhere because it was a public thing. So, I found out immediately while I was working which made it even worse, because I couldn’t be there,” Selena says.

Justin Bieber was completely fine after the “attack,” as it turns out the alleged attacker was actually an undercover police officer, who was just trying to protect Justin and get the crowd under control.

Selena had a bit of a scare herself recently when she was rushed to the hospital after taping an appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.”

“I was low in iron,” explains the 18-year-old singer. “Because I eat a lot of pastas, I don’t eat enough protein. I had to get a blood transfusion for more iron, it was that bad and I was just dehydrated.”

Good news, Selena is in good health now, and she is feeling great! She will be embarking on her first tour this summer.

Recently it was reported that Selena won’t wear Justin Bieber’s new fragrance “Someday” anymore, because his mom wears it and Selena doesn’t want to smell like Justin’s mom and she feels the scent is more for his fans anyway.

Selena puts this rumor to rest, “No, I think it actually smells very good. Everybody should definitely check it out, it smells beautiful.”

“I’m excited, I’ve done a lot of concerts, but I have never been able to have a creative control over it and it is something that I’ve worked really hard on,” says Selena. “I’m excited to kind of let my fans see me in a totally different light. I’m going to have wardrobe changes for the first time, dancers, effects, lights, I mean I have all the really cool stuff.”

During her show fans will get to see Selena perform a tribute another Disney alumni, Britney Spears. “I don’t want my whole set to be about me, i want to kind of break it up a little bit. So we are doing this whole kind of Britney mash-up to get the party started.”

Fans will no doubt get to hear Selena’s love yourself anthem “Who Says” off her album When the Sun Goes Down. Selena gives us a little insight into this hit.

“I feel like I obviously have an amazing platform, so being able to use that platform for songs like “Who Says” is really amazing and more than anything, because that song to me was really empowering and I’m going through the same thing with all the stuff on the internet and everything. So, it’s just one of those songs that makes you feel good and it’s just really affected my fans and it makes me feel really good.”

Another song on the album that is creating a lot of buzz is “Bang, Bang, Bang,” Selena explains the message behind this song.

“It’s not like an ‘I hate you’ song or an intense break-up song, it is almost a positive thing. Okay, this person was in my life, they weren’t necessarily what I needed, but now I’m happy, now I’m good, now I’m in a different place. So, it’s really fun and really cheeky, and it’s just a different twist, and a different way of saying ‘I’m over you.'”

If a new album and tour weren’t enough, Selena’s movie “Monte Carlo” opens in theaters this Friday, July 1. Selena had a bit of a challenge for this role, She not only had to memorize her lines, but she also had to deliver them in a British accent after she is mistaken for British heiress while her and her friends are vacationing in Paris.

Everyone should go see this movie, Selena tells us, “Even if you don’t know who I am or if you do know who I am this movie is really sweet and I worked really hard on it and Corey Monteith, this is one of Corey’s first movie’s that he’s ever done. he just was great in it, it’s just a sweet movie.”

“Monte Carlo” also stars “Gossip Girl” stars Katie Cassidy and Leighton Meester.

Selena’s new album When The Sun Goes Down is available now on iTunes and “Monte Carlo” is out in theaters this Friday, July 1.
