They say you never forget your big firsts and that statement certainly holds true for Selena Gomez. The singer, who currently graces the cover of Marie Claire, recently opened up to the magazine about how big of a Britney Spears fan she truly is.
In a behind-the-scenes video from her cover shoot, the “Can’t Keep My Hands To Myself” singer confessed that Spears holds the honor of being her first in two big ways.
“My first concert was Britney Spears. First CD I ever bought as well— Baby One More Time,” said Gomez.
Spears may have been her first concert but back then, Gomez didn’t exactly get VIP treatment! In fact, she admitted to having terrible seats — but of course, that didn’t stop a young Gomez from having a total blast at the show.
“We were all the way up in the nosebleeds where I was living my life,” recalled the singer.
Meanwhile, Gomez herself just kicked off her Revival Tour, something she says she’s really excited about.
“What I love most about touring is traveling,” said the singer. “I’m more than anything excited to share who I am with people, go on the road, talk to them. I talk so much on stage— too much— but it’s just the best to be able to connect with people.”
