Selena Gomez is Dazed’s latest cover star, appearing on the cover of our spring 2020 issue. In our interview with the star, she answers questions from a variety of friends, fans, and collaborators – including Latin superstar Bad Bunny.
Bad Bunny asks Gomez about her surname and her Latin identity. “You have a Latin surname because of your father: as a worldwide star, do you feel like you represent Latinos despite the fact your music is sung in English?” he says.
In response, Selena Gomez says she “one thousand per cent” feels this. “I’m always very vocal about my background, as far as me talking about immigration, and my grandparents having to come across the border illegally,” Gomez says. “I wouldn’t have been born (otherwise). I have such an appreciation for my last name. I’ve rereleased a lot of music in Spanish as well, and that’s something that’s gonna happen a bit more. So there’s a lot more I would love to do because I don’t take it lightly, I’m very honoured.”
