Selena Gomez Defies Doctor’s Orders | Interview | On Air With Ryan Seacrest

October 24, 2019

Joining us now, live from Hollywood, Selena Gomez and Joey King. They’re both starring in ‘Ramona and Beezus.’ Thank you, girls, for being with us this morning. How are ya? Joey: I’m doing good! How are you? Ryan: Now, we’re in New Orleans, was that Joey? Joey: Yes! Ryan: Wow, Joey, you sound much older than ten! Joey: Is that a good thing? Ryan: Yeah, it’s a compliment! Joey: Oh, thank you, then! Ryan: Very mature.
Ellen: Well, she does turn 11 on Friday. Ryan: Oh, so, big day coming up. And Selena this morning is a true soldier, She came in and her doctor said “vocal rest,” and she still got up early to come in this morning because her fans are there. How you holding up? Selena: I’m good, I’m really sad, but I’m good. Ryan: [whispering] So, uh, our doctor, your doctor, and
our doctor as well, may be listening let’s bring it down a little…he can’t get upset with a whisper. Selena: He said that’s actually worse. Ryan: So he’s been lying to me all years?
Ellen: A whisper
is worse? He’d probably say just don’t talk at all. Joey: Well, use a little white board to write on or something! [laughs] Selena: Joey, we’re on the radio… Joey: Oh yeah! Huh. You can’t do that! Selena: Oh, Ryan
Ryan: Yes? Selena: I brought you and Amy some wine, me and my mom did, for thanking you for- about all the mess. Ryan: You brought us wine? Selena: Yeah, I brought you wine but you’re not here. Ryan: Aw, that’s so sweet! I know, even a double bummer! Like, not only did you come in sick, there’s
no one even in the studio with you! I could not move the American Idol auditions.
We’re in New Orleans right now and there are thousands of contestants above me on bleachers getting ready to to do what you do, which is to sing! So, that’s why we’re not there. But the fans are gathered there at the courtyard, excited to see you. And congratulations on your movie! You know, people have been giving you, Selena, a lot of props for choosing this role and staying somewhat within your wheelhouse with out jumping out too fast or quickly. Was that part of your thinking? Selena: Yeah, I think that, as my first movie, this is my first theatrical movie, I just wanted it to be something that my audience could go see and something that I
was going to be really proud of and comfortable with so, I got to work with a great cast and I think that’s worth doing something that’s not, you know, me. Ryan: Tell me about your first meeting with 10-year-old Joey King, who plays Ramona. Selena: Why don’t you tell them how close we are, Joey? Joey: We’re real close! We used to-wait, not
used to-we hang out all the time! On set of ‘Ramona’ anytime we had a
free time, we used to go to Starbucks, movies… Selena: Tell them what I gave you, your first what? Joey: My first carmel Frappucino with extra whipped cream! [laughs] Joey: It was delicious! Ryan: Joey, that’s caffeinated, be careful because– Selena: Oh, no, we know. Joey: It was caffeinated. The first time I had it, it was caffeinated
and I was like…I was like, I couldn’t settle down. Selena: She was shaking, I was kind of scared. [laughs] Ryan: So, the two of you had chemistry from the get-go,
Joey? You liked Selena right out of the gate? Joey: Yes, of course I did! Ryan: And was this movie challenging for you, Joey, or
was it pretty easy to play Ramona? Joey: Well, umm, let’s see. There were some parts that were easy and some
parts that were difficult, you know? You have your, you know, ups and downs, you
know? You know what I mean? Ryan: Yup! Of course! I had three of them during this interview. [laughs] So, you know that Selena is not only
an actress, but she also sings, Joey? Joey: Yes, I do. Ryan: Have you heard her music?
Joey: Yes, I have. Ryan: What do you think of it?
Joey: It’s awesome! Ryan: It’s awesome? So, we’ve heard her track ‘Naturally’ Selena and the Scene, but she’s got a bunch of new music, a new album
‘A Year With Out Rain’ coming out in September, can you tell us a little bit about the album, Selena? Selena: Yes, basically, I just loved the way ‘Naturally’ came out and I just loved the way it made me feel performing it and I think the fans really reacted really well, so
we kind of did that whole vibe with this record, and I think because of the
first one, it was my learning experience, a lot more people are believing in me so, they’ve given me amazing tracks that I’m so excited about so, I know that Toby Gad gave me my single and
the title, which is called ‘A Year With Out Rain,’ and Katy Perry gave me ‘Rock God’ and then, of course, Kevin
Rudolph gave me my single which was ‘Round and Round.” Ryan: Can you take us behind the scenes a little bit- When you
say, I mean, I think I know what you’re talking about When you say Katy Perry gave you a song, is that something
that you wait for her to make a decision on? Or how does the work, for people that don’t know how that works? Selena: Yeah, yeah, she has this song, she writes a bunch of
songs because she’s a genius and I love her, but there’s a song called ‘Rock God’ that’s been on the shelf
and I think a bunch of people have wanted it and I was the lucky one that she decided to give it to! It’s an amazing song, and she’s incredible, so I’m honored to have it. Ryan: So, when something like that happens, Selena, do
you speak with her about it? Selena: I never wanna be, I never wanna do that
because I never really want anybody to be uncomfortable so I always let the business people handle it because if she says ‘no’…no hard feelings. It’s not like me calling her saying ‘please please please!’ So, it’s ok. Ryan: We’ll get to some more of the
new stuff in just a little bit. First let me play this, this is ‘Naturally,’
Selena Gomez and the Scene KIIS FM! ♫ How you choose to express yourself ♫ ♫ It’s all your own, and I can tell ♫ ♫ Oh, it comes naturally, it comes naturally ♫ ♫ You follow what you feel inside ♫ ♫It’s intuitive, you don’t have to try ♫ ♫ It comes naturally, mm it comes naturally ♫ ♫ and it takes my breath away ♫ ♫ You are the thunder and I am the lightning ♫ ♫ and I love the way you know who you are ♫ ♫ and to me it’s exciting ♫ ♫ When you know it’s meant to be ♫ ♫ Everything comes naturally, it comes naturally ♫ ♫ when you’re with me baby ♫ ♫ Everything comes naturally, it comes naturally bay bay baby ♫ ♫ You have a way of moving me ♫ ♫ A force of nature, your energy, it comes naturally… ♫ Ryan: Selena Gomez is with us live today, she’s got a bit
of a sore throat, so we really are grateful that you got up this morning and came in, I know that the doctor wanted you to stay in bed and rest, but you said ‘none of that!’ Selena: [laughs] I did! Ryan: And what kind of wine did you bring
in? That was very sweet of you. Selena: What is it called? It’s called-
Ryan: High in alcohol content? Selena: That is true, yes. Conundrum. Ryan: Oh the Camus Conundrum. I love a little Conundrum. Selena: Well, it’s here for you, waiting! Ryan: What is your mom trying to say to me?
The word conundrum typifies some of our days here. Selena: Oh, I see. Ryan: So, Selena, you’ve got Ramona and Beezus in
theaters, you’re also getting ready to release this new album, this album that you’re very excited about, I was
just on Bing online and I saw that you’ve already sold hundreds of thousands in just a few weeks of ‘Round and Round!’ Selena: I know, I couldn’t believe that! I remember when I released my first single and 3,000
people bought it so, it’s kind of crazy! Ryan: Well, why do you think it’s grown so
much in such a short amount of time? Selena: I don’t know, I really don’t know. I would have to say it’s my fans which
is why I do everything I do. And plus, I think it’s my music that I like
to put out because it’s all about fun. And I think everybody knows that it’s just going to
be fun and not too serious, you know? Ryan: Yeah. Well, tell me about ‘Round and Round.’
What’s making you go round and round? Selena: What’s making me go round and round…actually, I heard the
song and I fell in love with it. I thought it was really fun, and I loved the bridge. The bridge is my favorite part. And, for the album, I have someone guesting
on it, which I’m really excited about! Ryan: How was your last Thursday or weekend with
your 18th birthday? Did you have fun? Selena: Yeah, I spent it on the airplane but Joey
threw me a birthday party which was nice. Ellen: Aw, that’s sweet!
Ryan: Nothing like a party at 1,000 feet! Selena: Aw, my gosh, what is this? Ryan: We got a little cake for you! Ellen: Happy birthday! Selena: Awww, thank you! Oh my gosh, that’s my face on
that! I’m going to eat my face right now! [laughs] Selena: Thank you so much! Ryan: Nothing more uncomfortable than you having to look
at you and eat yourself in icing. Selena: Yeah, that’s so weird! Ryan: So, happy birthday, enjoy that, and thank you again for coming in
and to meet all the folks who are waiting to meet ya. Selena: Of course, thank you so much, Ryan. Bye Ellen! Ellen: Bye! Listen to your doctor! Get well soon! Ryan: Ramona and Beezus in theaters and her song ‘Round and Round’
available on iTunes, the new album coming out in September. Selena: I will! Talk to you later, thanks, Selena! Selena: Thank you!
