Spring Breakers costar Selena Gomez will continue her hot run of late by performing her new single, “Come & Get It,” on television for the first time at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards live April 14 on MTV (and I’m betting right now that Spring Breakers will find itself with at least a couple of nominations at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards). UPDATE 4/10/13: Kim Kardashian has been confirmed to introduce Selena Gomez’ performance of “Come and Get It” at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards.
Selena Gomez will actually be debuting “Come & Get It” April 8 with On the Air With Ryan Seacrest on 102.7 KIIS FM. Immediately following the Seacrest premiere, “Come & Get It” will be available on iTunes on April 8, and other outlets April 9. “Come & Get It” is the first single from Selena Gomez’ upcoming album, which will be released this summer.
In the clip below, Selena Gomez speaks with MTV News about her upcoming performance at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, her new album, and why she thinks this is the perfect place to perform it for the first time. Among some of her thoughts:
“It’s really cool because I got to take a year off of music and really be a part of great movies and work with great people … so, I thought it would perfect that I kind of go into music again through MTV and then the Movie Awards … I’m so stoked.”
“I really wanted [the album] to be a different level for me … so for the performance I’m just going to try to do things that nobody has ever seen from me before and kind of take it to the next level …”
The 2013 MTV Movie Awards air live on MTV April 14 at 9pm ET.
