Most celebrities don’t offer their fans the opportunity to shape a product they’re meant to buy — but then again, most celebrities aren’t Selena Gomez.
“At this point in my career, it’s really important to me that my fans understand me and who I am as a person — I feel like we’re all just in it together. They’re everything to me,” said Gomez during an exclusive phone interview with WWD. “I always involve them in every aspect of my career. Even when I’m on stage performing, I always say I’m performing with them, not for them, because I’m kind of growing up with everybody. And at this time in my career and life, I’m able to share something with them, and I think we can make something great together.”
