American singer Selena Gomez has revealed she is a big fan of Cheryl Fernandez-Versini's music.

The 23-year-old said she was "obsessed" and "hooked" on the X Factor judge's song Fight for This Love after seeing the music video on television.

Gomez, who rose to fame on the Disney channel's Wizards of Waverly Place, told ITV's Lorraine: "I was shooting a movie in Budapest and there was random music videos playing and I saw 'Fight for This Love' and I was obsessed, I was hooked.

"And I actually had a layover in London and they didn't sell the record in America so I was running to try and catch my connecting flight but I needed to get the CD while I was here."

Texas-born Gomez also spoke about her close friendship with singer Taylor Swift.

She said: "I mean I've known her for ten years, she's been one of my best friends through thick and thin, walked by my side.

"Her whole family has been so supportive of me and yeah, she's been there during crucial points in my life and in my career."

The singer and actress dated Canadian pop star Justin Bieber for around three years.

Bieber recently sparked rumours of a romantic reunion between them when he posted an old photo of them kissing on his Instagram account, writing alongside it "Feels".

Due to release a new single titled 'Hands To Myself' from her Revival album, Gomez explained that in the early stages of her music career "sharing the vulnerable, raw, messy side wasn't necessarily encouraged".

She said: "I think the definition of strength is being vulnerable and being honest.

"That doesn't mean you have to be like, 'I'm strong I'm amazing, look at me', you can have those moments but you won't have those moments unless you're like 'I've been broken, I've felt things and messed up a lot and I'm okay saying that'".
