As previously announced, megastar Rihanna will serve as the singing competition’s key adviser for season nine.
“I always feel like when I’m in the presence of someone older than me, I have this respect and I love that I can learn. I want to learn from people, I want to be around women who are, you know, nurturing and care and smart and creative,” Gomez told Access Hollywood of working with Stefani, who added, “It’s just incredible to me to think of somebody that’s been doing it since they were a child..The dedication and the years that she’s put in, and to [not] only be so young, but have so much experience, is kind of incredible.”
Gomez rose to fame starring on Disney Channel’s “Wizards of Waverly Place.” Before that, she was cast in the children’s series “Barney & Friends.” This summer, Gomez released her latest single “Good for You” in anticipation of her upcoming album “Revival,” which is slated for an Oct. 9 release.
