If you've already heard Selena Gomez's new track “Fetish” featuring Gucci Mane, then you know just how sultry the lyrics to the song are. The 25-year-old star oozes sexiness when she sings, “You got a fetish for my love, I push you out and you come right back, don’t see a point in blaming you, If I were you, I'd do me, too."
One would expect the same seductive energy to match the song's music video, which debuted last week. Instead, we got something totally unexpected! The video has an intimate yet creepy vibe to it, and in an interview with Dazed Digital, she is finally explaining why she took this route for the song. It turns out both the former Disney star and the director of the video, Petra Collins, are huge horror film fans.
“Oh my God! Literally, we were lying on a teddy bear watching Chucky. At that point, it was clear we are on the same wavelength. It’s still so crazy to me how, when I first heard ‘Fetish’, I pictured it to the backdrop of horror. It’s one of my favorite genres to make a female look strong”, said Collins in the interview.
“I made it very clear to you that I didn’t see ‘Fetish’ how most people know the word at face value. When most people hear the word ‘Fetish’, they think of S&M and all that sexual shit, but you didn’t. You knew why I loved it. You told me, ‘I think this song is about love, something crazy and complicated.’ I wanted the video to be contextualized”, said Gomez.
