Selena Gomez: Not Interested in “Fifty Shades of Grey” Role
She was a riot in the Funny or Die spoof of “Fifty Shades of Grey,” but Selena Gomez says that’s as close as she’ll get to starring in a possibly forthcoming film version of the hit book.
The “Wizards of Waverly Place” babe told press that after reading a few pages of the novel, she found herself a bit interested.
"I only read the beginning of it, because when they told me about the skit, I didn't know what it was about. So I started to read it, and I was like, 'Oh, this is spicy.' So I thought it was good, it was intriguing. Obviously, it's working, so the skit was really funny."
As for starring in an actual depiction of the book, Gomez noted, “I don't think so. I know I'm taking risks, but I don't think I could do that! That would be a little too much for me. I think someone older should do that part."
Instead, she’s headed back to the recording studio. "I am missing music, so we're going to start on the fourth record at the end of this year. Very different! I want to go for producers that probably wouldn't want me to do their songs. I just want to knock on their door. I also want to work with Fun. I want to work with just different styles of music.
"I also want to work with Taylor [Swift] too. So I just want to do different things for this album. By the time it comes out, I'll almost be 21, so I want to be able to — wow, that sounds really scary! — I want it to be older."
