Oil will do it for Selena Gomez
Selena Gomez has revealed that she sometimes drinks olive oil before she goes on stage.
The popstar and actress admitted she has a spoonful of the oil to soothe her throat before she has to perform.
"This may sound gross, but sometimes I drink a little bit of olive oil. It tastes terrible, but it coats your throat so it's really good for the vocal chords," she said.
Selena, who will be hosting the MTV European Music Awards live on MTV on November 6, also has a "huddle" with her band.
"Usually my band and I all come together in a huddle and wish each other a good show," she added.
The 19-year-old, who is going out with Justin Bieber, admitted she is nervous ahead of the ceremony in Belfast, which will see performances by Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars, Queen, Coldplay, Jessie J, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Snow Patrol.
But she is glad her loved ones will be around to lend their support.
"I'm definitely nervous, but I'm also really excited and looking forward to having fun with it. And I'm really happy that my band will be there with me, and my family and friends," she said.
