Selena Gomez, queen of cozy clothes and fabulous outerwear, put her own cozy-chic spin on sweater weather in New York City yesterday. Gomez was photographed leaving Electric Lady Studios late last night in Manhattan. She wore a black-and-white striped Everlane sweater with black pants and slippers. Her hair was styled up in a ponytail. (Gomez recently wore the same sweater out to dinner at Carbone, pairing it with a black Mango peacoat for a dressier take.)
Gomez spoke to Rolling Stone in an interview published earlier this month about the new music she’s making and her decision to move to New York City, where she’ll begin shooting Only Murders in the Building season 3 soon.
“I have people literally say to me, ‘Stop saying you don’t like L.A.,’” she said. “But if I’m honest, my schedule in New York is the crème de la crème. I have my system there, I have my workouts there, I have my coffee spots there. I get to walk and breathe there, and be inspired by New York City and the people and the life there.”
“I like all the slush and grossness,” she added of New York winters. “I love being near all the Jewish grandmas. Nothing compares to being in your home in a blanket by the fireplace just reading or watching something.”
As for her music, Gomez revealed she had written 24 songs that she tentatively planned to start recording by the end of this year. “‘My Mind and Me’ is a little sad,” she explained of the first new song to come out, “but it’s also a really nice way of putting a button on the documentary part of life, and then it’ll just be fun stories of me living my life and going on dates and having conversations with myself. I feel like it’s going be an album that’s like, ‘Oh, she’s not in that place anymore; she’s actually just living life.’”
