Selena Gomez is showing off her edgy side for i-D Magazine’s September issue.
The pop star looks almost unrecognizable in one look from her spread, posing in a grungy over-sized jacket and slick hair alongside two models with shaved heads.
Selena’s i-D cover shot is more what we’re used to seeing from the 21-year-old singer – Gomez, in minimal makeup, flashes a goofy face and does her best wink for the cute photo.
Selena talked with the fashion mag about breaking into the business, admitting, “I was actually really shy as a child. My first audition did not go well. I was very awkward. It was in front of a bunch of suits at Disney and I definitely felt I blew it. It took me a long time to let go.”
She also discussed one of her musical icons, the oh-so-influential Ms. Britney Spears.
“The Baby One More Time… concert was amazing. I sat all the way up in the nosebleeds and I could barely see her, but I remember it being the best day of my life. I had my hair in a ponytail and I knew all the words to the songs. I’ll always remember it,” Gomez recalls.
The “Come & Get It” songstress was also a fan of her stripped down photo shoot, saying, “It’s so easy to wear incredible, beautiful dresses and look super glamorous, because you have the power of Photoshop, but a shoot that’s really stripped-down and raw is really fun to do. I was being rained on, it was freezing, I was covered in a giant sweater and my hair was all over the place. I got to just be in that moment and feel like I was there.”
