Selena Gomez invokes the elements in her brand-new “Come & Get It” video.
Selena Gomez has spent much of 2013 attempting to gracefully reinvent her image from a baby-faced Disney ingenue to a 20-year-old girl gone wild (while still keeping her bikini top on, thankyouverymuch) in “Spring Breakers.” All baby faces aside, Selena’s more than accomplished her growing up goal, what with news of an upcoming album, her “come hither” single “Come & Get It,” a slinky, Bollywood-esque performance of said single at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, and now, a sultry new video for “Come & Get It,” which just premiered on “MTV First: Selena Gomez.” Girl, you’ll be a woman… uh, NOW.
Watch Selena Gomez’s “Come & Get It” video after the jump.
Setting the stage with a highly cinematic “Earth, fire, wind, water” theme, the Anthony Mandler-directed clip has a lingerie-clad Selena sensually gyrating all over the place — in a grassy meadow, by a roaring fire, against a mirror, under the sea… you get the idea. It’s EARTHY! Joined by a crew of backup dancers, Selena lustily croons, “You ain’t gotta worry it’s an open invitation/ I’ll be sittin’ right here real patient” as she twerks next to a bonfire and repeatedly strokes a stubbly guy’s face (we’re assuming he’s the one she wants to “come & get it.” Does Justin Bieber know about this??).
In addition to debuting her video, Selena sat down for a chat with MTV’s Christina Garibaldi, where she played a quick game of “Twitter Rapid Fire.” When one of her Twitter-based Selenators asked her who she’d star in a movie with if she could pick anybody, Selena spat out, “Ryan Gosling. Just to LOOK at him.” (DUH.)
Watch Selena’s new video AND “MTV First” interview below, and please excuse us while we ransack our closet for anything even remotely resembling lingerie – WHY IS EVERYTHING WE OWN MADE OF COTTON?
