When musicians think about what could be their ultimate accomplishment, they probably think of Grammys, gold and platinum albums, No. 1 hits and sold-out tours. But Selena Gomez says her longtime goal actually has nothing to do with any of that.
In an video interview with London's Capital FM, Gomez was asked to reveal her ultimate dream and she admitted that it's "to save people's lives."
"My ultimate dream is that I am able to save people's lives through something, whether it's a song, music, or if it's me just speaking about the troubles and the trials and tribulations that I had gone through," she said.
"That would be my goal. I'd rather be remembered as someone who has helped ... that I could be a voice for others who maybe don't know what's going on or what they're feeling," she added. "That's what I hope."
Gomez was also asked to name a song she wishes she'd written. She had two answers and both were performed by Adele.
"I would have wanted to do either 'Send My Love (To Your New Lover)' or 'Hello,'" Selena said. "I will never touch an Adele song in my life. I would never try to sing it. But I would say those were two that I was like, 'Man! I love that so much and I wish I had written something like that.'"
She also said that the song that most reminds her of where she's from is Miranda Lambert's award-winning country hit "The House that Built Me," and the first song she remembers loving is "I Hope You Dance," the country/pop crossover hit by Lee Ann Womack.
