There's no mistaking it:
Except for a small pair of black underwear, Selena Gomez is naked on the cover of her new album, "Revival."
Why did the singer choose to go in this mature, revealing direction?
"I chose this one because it’s stunning and I thought it was such a beautiful representation of where I am," she told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show this week.
Gomez went on to credit Christina Aguilera‘s 2002 “Stripped” as an inspiration, saying a song such as “Good For You” may sound like it’s about a woman who wants to look good for a man, but…
"I love feeling like I’m in love and want to look good for someone. At the same time, there’s no guy in the video, I’m saying I am a diamond, and I like the way that women feel when they’re in that state."
Aside from touching on the influence of her dad and giving Charli XCX major props, Selena also went back to a bikini photo she shared that drew criticism from some online trolls.
"The reason why I did that was because I didn’t want them to win," Selena said of why she replied to one critic and labeled him "disgusting," adding:
"Then the next day, it wasn’t about how I gained weight, it was about how I embraced it. And that’s just kind of my approach.”
We're all for it!
