“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,” Gomez tells i-D. “I had my hair in a ponytail and I knew all the words to the songs. I’ll always remember it.”
The actress talked about hitting the streets of London for her i-D shoot. Gomez said it was fun doing a stripped down shoot instead of the usual glamourous photo shoots she is used to.
“I love doing shoots overseas. Actually being there and feeling the environment adds a realness to the shoot,” she said. “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.”
