While chatting with Zane Lowe, Selena Gomez revealed which artists she’s been listening to while quarantined.  From Taylor Swift to Rihanna and Billie Eilish, Selena dishes on why these artists, and more, are all included in her at home music playlist.





All I’m going to say is from the get go, I’ve been a Rihanna fan.  ‘SOS’ to now. So there isn’t any real moment that it isn’t gold, but ‘Love on the Brain,’ and when she performed that live, I think that’s one of the greatest songs of our time. I just think that the way she sings that song…” revealed Selena.



When Zane asked if Rihanna is her favourite artist, Selena had only one answer for him, “Oh, I mean, yeah. Yes. I have a whole book in there dedicated to Rihanna in my living room.”  After fangirling over RiRi, Selena brought up BFF Taylor Swift.  Gushing over ‘Lover,’ Selena says, “There’s nothing really to say other than this is another song that shows her ability to take it back to the old, to also combine it with her challenging to do new things with her music.  So I think that’s as pure that- I’ll always, not even biased, just think she is one of the greatest songwriters.”




Selena’s ‘At Home’ playlist includes artists such as Kid Cudi, Erykah Badu, Fleetwood Mac, Julia Michaels and H.E.R., “I guess this quarantine has given me time to just listen to all kinds of music.  This was more last minute, but as I was going through it, I realized that it does kinda have a reoccurring theme.  There’s so much storytelling in each of these songs.  I sat back and I was like, ‘that’s so interesting,’ because I have these pivotal songs that leave me in this trance and inspire me to then listen to other type of music. It’s about lyrics, strong lyrics, a lot of love and pain and then there’s just some party songs that just make me feel like I’m a kid again,” Selena confesses.

 Also on her playlist – Billie Eilish! Selena revealed Billie’s ‘Everything I Wanted’ made her cry the first time she listened to it, “I just sobbed because I’ve been doing this for so long and it’s like, damn, that’s so true.  There’s so many moments where I was just like, ‘Oh, it doesn’t matter who you are.’ There’s moments in my life that’s like ‘is this it?’ She deserved every single thing that she got and has. She’s an amazing, amazing artist.”



Selena also dished on what it’s been like during the COVID-19 lockdown and what she’s been up to while self isolating at home, “I do a lot of walks because that’s all I feel like I can do.  I do weights inside the house, definitely embarrassingly watch the YouTube videos where I’m trying to do what the woman is telling me to do, but she looks so glamorous doing it.”
