Selena Gomez Talks New Album, Bradley Cooper and Beyonce

(Extra) "Extra" sat down with singer/actress Selena Gomez to help celebrate her 21st birthday and the release of her first solo album, "Stars Dance."

Gomez opened up about her recent run-in with her star crush, Bradley Cooper. "I just remember seeing him and freaking out and running away very quickly afterward. That seems to be the thing I do. It was surreal. He was so beautiful. I told him I was a big fan." Selena jokingly added, "I'll have a restraining order soon."

Gomez also talked about getting personal in her album, revealing that the main theme is independence. "I just wanted this entire record to be about being a woman, being comfortable in your body. I still don't think I necessarily spilled everything. I think the fans will have fun putting it all together."

Selena will be going on tour soon and said Beyonc� motivated her after seeing the "Mrs. Carter" tour. Gomez gushed, "I could never touch that status. It was ridiculous, but it did give me motivation! That's something that I definitely, at her age, would love to be doing. She's fierce and was definitely owning it that night." more on this story
