For her new album, the singer revealed to Entertainment Weekly that she was influenced by pop stars like Janet Jackson, Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears

“I grew up with Britney and NSYNC and Janet and all those people,” Selena revealed. “I would buy the copy, read the thank yous, and I felt like I knew them. Christina’s Stripped was one of my favorites. What I loved about Revival is that it felt like there was a fluid story.”

Revivial is the first album Gomez has done since leaving Disney for Interscope. 

“I’ve lived such a public life that I understand that I’m under a microscope,” she says. “That has taken me into so many different phases. It’s made me depressed and it’s made me happy and it’s made me grateful and humble—but [I’ve learned] it’s okay to let down my walls with my music, to feel sexy and good.”

Gomez's newest album is set to be released on Oct. 9.
