Exciting news for all you Selenators -- over a year without new Sel tunes has felt like a year without rain, but it's coming to an end soon! Selena has just announced that she will release a brand new album in March! Sel shared the news with Ryan Seacrest earlier today, who tweeted "Selena Gomez just told me new album in march fyi."
Earlier in the year, Selena spoke about the direction she wants her next album to go in. She said "I want it to sound very different! I want to go for producers that probably wouldn't want me to do their songs. I just want to knock on their door. I also want to work with Fun. I want to work with just different styles of music." We are so excited to hear what she has been working on!

During our fab day at Arthur Ashe Kids' Day, we got the chance to catch up with YouTube sensations Megan & Liz! These super-talented ladies are the next up-and-coming stars and we had a blast talking to them about everything from One Direction (you will NOT believe Megan's embarrassing encounter with Harry Styles!) to guys to their upcoming album.
Check out their video shout out for M Girls only here:
Here's M's exclusive Q&A sesh with them:
M: Hey girlies! We can't get your tune, "Bad For Me" out of our heads! Can you tell us what it was like to film the music vid?
Megan & Liz: That day was just like "oh my gosh, it was so much fun." Everything was so easy and the dancers were really good and the guy was really cute
M: So, we're super-excited for your upcoming album! Can you spill any deets?
Megan & Liz: We're working on our album, which is due out early next year. We don't have a date yet, but we have a title, but we can't say what yet! It's going to be very pop. We hope that every song you won't be able to get out of your head -- that's the goal! Every song you can relate to it at least a little bit or you know somebody who can relate to it.
M: Which other artists are you totally loving right now?
Megan & Liz: Taylor Swift! And of course, One Direction -- we're Directioners!
M: Have you ever met the guys?
Megan: We have! We met them at the Kid's Choice Awards. I had this embarrassing moment with Harry with carrots and it was weird.
M: OMG -- we wanna hear!
Megan: We saw them afterwards and when you walked out, there was this room full of food and I saw this package of carrots with ranch and I was like "oh my god I'm gonna take those for later", so I had them in my hand when I saw them and then I was like, "is there anyone that can take this, and I meant the picture" and Harry thought I meant the carrots and so he took the carrots from me and I was like "oh no, I can hold the carrots, it's really not a problem. I just needed someone to take the pictures" and he was like "oh, alright." Here I am with carrots and One Direction, okay!
M: That's too funny! How about you, Liz? Ever have an embarrassing moment?
Liz: Of course! I went to buy some shoes and it was like the Converse store, which is like a wall of Converse and all the sizes are right there and everything and I pick up one shoe and I say "I need this in a seven" and there's a wall of shoes like right there. And I'm like "oh." And the guy was like "the sizes are right behind you." I was like "oh, sorry." He thought I was a total idiot, but I was like "I don't care."
M: Yikes! So, you two are fraternal twins -- so cool! Do you ever have typical "twin" moments?
Megan & Liz: We say the same things at the same time a lot. Like last night we were doing an interview and someone counted and like six times we said the exact same thing at the same time. It was weird.
M: LOL -- we've noticed it, too! Well, thanks for chatting with us!
Megan & Liz: Thank you!
