Selena Gomez Dishes on New Album

by at . Comments

Selena Gomez is in the middle of an alleged feud with Miley Cyrus and the subject of dating rumors regarding fellow child star Nick Jonas.

Today, though, she's talking only about her debut album.

Wanna Feel My Club?

The actress-singer is, not surprisingly, "super excited" about starting work on it. But the 16-year-old, who stars in The Wizards of Waverly Place on the Disney Channel, has some surprises in store on the music front.

"I'm going to be in a band — no Selena Gomez stuff," she told MTV News. "I'm not a solo artist. I don't think I want my name attached to it."

Selena Gomez, 16, is growing up fast!

The star said that the album will have a pop-rock feel to it, and she plans to play instruments on some of the album's tracks.

"I basically want to make music that is fun and that parents and kids can jump around to and have a good time to," Selena Gomez said.

"I will be singing, and I'm learning drums and playing electric guitar."

She even wants to take a backseat at times during live gigs.

"I would like to try it and kind of switch it up," she said.

"When I do the tour and stuff, I would like to do maybe a section on the piano or on guitar or on drums."

And although she's super psyched, a music career is relatively new to her, so Selena is determined not to crimp anyone's style.

"You know the Jonas Brothers and Demi Lovato are my friends, so I would not copy or do anything that they did. They're really good, obviously, so I'm going to let them have that. But it's kind of fun to learn things."
