Selena Gomez Gets ‘Stripped-Down and Raw’ in i-D Magazine


Who’s that girl?

Selena Gomez is barely recognizable in a new photo shoot for i-D magazine.

The “Come & Get It” singer doesn’t look anything like her usual self, wearing minimal makeup and masculine fashion for a photo spread in the London-based mag’s Street Issue.

“I love doing shoots overseas,” Selena tells i-D. “Actually being there and feeling the environment adds a realness to the shoot. It’s so easy to wear incredible, beautiful dresses and look super glamorous, because you have the power of Photoshop, but a shoot that’s really stripped-down and raw is really fun to do. I was being rained on, it was freezing, I was covered in a giant sweater and my hair was all over the place. I got to just be in that moment and feel like I was there.”

Selena also opened up about her admiration of another pop star: Britney Spears.

“The Baby One More Time… concert was amazing. I sat all the way up in the nosebleeds and I could barely see her, but I remember it being the best day of my life. “I had my hair in a ponytail and I knew all the words to the songs. I’ll always remember it.”
