Selena Gomez Talks Quarantine, New Hit Single, Makeup Line, and More in Variety Interview
Selena Gomez recently talked about her new single “Ice Cream,” makeup line, cooking show, life in quarantine, and more in a recent interview.
Gomez recently sat down in a zoom interview with Variety, where she spoke out on several different topics and touched on life in quarantine, something we can all relate to. She revealed quarantine has been the most amount of time she spent alone since she was 16. She said she was carrying around a lot of anxiety due to the circumstances, but gained a sense of knowledge and confidence about what she says and stands by.
Gomez and Blackpink recently collaborated to release the new single “Ice Cream.” The singer expressed her enthusiasm for the music video to the reporter. The song will appear on the K-pop group’s upcoming full-length album. The music video already has over 200 million views, and Gomez said it was a joyful thing to be apart of and hopes it will make people feel good. She confessed her 7-year-old sister hasn’t been able to go to school and to see her dancing and having fun to the song was a huge highlight.
With all the chaos and current events surrounding life at this time, she disclosed she still has hope for the country and wants the younger generation to use their voice and vote, as it is now more important than ever.
She also touched on Stacey Abrams and transgender activist Raquel Williams taking over her Instagram for a day. She informed that with everything happening, she felt she didn’t have much to say being half Mexican and from Texas, it’s a whole different community that gets attacked. She felt it was necessary to use her platform and audience to give a voice to those who have been directly fighting oppression and injustice. She wanted her audience to hear the story directly from them and multiple categories from the industry and the government. It was a “no brainer” for her to have them take over her platform, she explained. Gomez introduced Abrams with a short post.

Please meet Stacey Abrams (@staceyabrams). Stacey is a New York Times bestselling author, nonprofit CEO and political leader. After serving as Democratic Leader of the Georgia House of Representatives in 2018, Abrams became the Democratic nominee for Governor of Georgia, where she won more votes than any other Democrat in the state’s history. Abrams was the first black woman to become the gubernatorial nominee for a major party in the United States. Today Stacey is taking over my Instagram!
If her hit single, cooking show, and crime series weren’t enough to keep busy, Gomez has also been doing a lot of producing. She stated being on the other side of things is fun and interesting as she is able to be apart of the storytelling, and shaping who the characters are. She even announced she is currently apart of 16 different projects, all focusing on different areas and matters that she believes in.
The celeb has definitely been keeping busy during quarantine and has her hands full while juggling tons of different materials. We can’t wait to tune into her new Hulu series as well as learn more about the projects she plays a role in producing. You can watch the 22-minute interview here for more details.
Wishing Gomez all the best as she juggles both old and new projects.
