When asked about her personal musical tastes in interviews, Selena Gomez is often vague, as she's apparently into just about everything "from classical to country music, indie, R&B, pop, hip hop, a real selection."
But some artists are obviously dearer to her than others. The always composed singer has cited cartoonish singer-songwriter Katy Perry among her inspirations, and even turned to Perry for one of the songs on her album A Year Without Rain: "Rock God." and "Thats more Like it" in When the Sun Goes Down!
She explained to MTV,
"I actually had to fight for that song. I wanted it so bad. It's kind of funky, and I think I used her style and we kind of mixed it up with the producers that I worked with with my style, so we made it a little bit more techno."
Consider her a superfan. She also listed Adele as her favorite singer of the moment during an interview with Radio Disney, and says she's also listening to a lot of Rihanna, Bruno Mars and Mumford & Sons.
When it comes to her friends' work, Selena is open about her favorites. Check out this video of hers about Katy Perry!
