Selena Gomez: 'Skrillex inspired my 'baby-dubstep' sound'

'Spring Breakers' star Selena Gomez has opened up about the sound of her forthcoming new album and revealed that part of it was inspired by dubstep producer, Skrillex.

Speaking to MTV News about her new record, she explained that it's a fast paced offering and she had a lot of 'creative control' with the musical direction of the songs that feature on it: "To be honest, most of the record speeds up. With this album, I got to record over 24 songs, and it was really fun for me to have more of a creative control and more of a say, and that's what was super important to me with this album."

Gomez added that working on a film that had Skrillex on the soundtrack influenced her style, too, and she has incorporated that into her new cut:

"I want it to be a mixture of everything I'm obsessed with. I love to dance and I love to make people dance. It's the best feeling. Doing 'Spring Breakers' was really fun, because Skrillex and Cliff Martinez did the soundtrack, and [Skrillex] kind of inspired me with a baby dubstep, because I have a few songs that have that."
