Forget Hollywood! Selena Gomez is a Bollywood dream…
The 20-year-old half-Mexican American singer/actress and former Disney Channel star channeled a sexy version of Aladdin’s Princess Jasmine when she performed her brand new single “Come and Get It” on Sunday at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards.
Gomez, who debuted the first single from her upcoming album earlier than planned last weekend, dressed in a deep red Bollywood-inspired outfit and gave viewers a taste of Eastern music and dance. Wild-haired and bare-footed, the Spring Breakers star’s performance was a mash up of Arabic, Indian and Thai dancing.
Despite being nervous about performing “Come and Get It” live for the first time, as Gomez revealed during the rehearsals, she managed to shine bright during her song-and-dance number.
Earlier this month, Jason Evigan, who collaborated on Gomez’s new material, said: “I think it’s going to take her to the next level… She’s got some really cool like ethnic influence, kind of tribally dance drums and stuff like that. I kind of feel she’s going to be like a new J.Lo kind of thing.”
