She has cited her influences as Britney Spears and Bruno Mars, but singer Selena Gomez can add Beyonce to that list if her latest stage outfit is anything to go by.
The 21 year-old singer is currently touring America in a bid to further promote her chart-topping album, Stars Dance, who has already sold 244,000 copies in the US. But the singer looked like she’d raided Ms Knowles’ closet as she donned a purple body suit with a jewel-encrusted bodice, last night.
Her hair, which was centre-parted in a cascade of loose curls, was also reminiscent of Ms Knowles, whose performances are considered some of pop music’s best.
One such fan was fellow performer Hilary Duff. The blonde star looked perfectly attired in skinny black jeans with a semi-sheer white vest top, which revealed a black bra underneath. Chances are there’ll be plenty more famous faces to watch her perform over the next few weeks.
Gomez, who formerly dated teen heartthrob Justin Bieber, has been touring extensively since August. and will continue to play live across America until the end of the month. Then, in January, the singer will perform four dates in Japan.
Fortunately, while her ex allegedly visited a brothel in Brazil, Selena has been keen to promote herself as more moralistic. In a new interview with Teen Vogue said she’s not a ‘one night’ kind of girl. ‘I’m always going to be the girl you want to take home to your parents, not for the night,’ she said: ‘The older I’ve gotten, the more I’ve learned that I have to open myself up to all opportunities.
‘Maybe I’ll get burned and not meet the right people, but I won’t know until I do it.’ The former Disney star admitted life after Bieber was tough. ‘You fall in love and it completely consumes you,’ she explains.
