Selena is currently at SXSW in Austin, Texas promoting her far-from-Disney role in Spring Breakers with Ashley Benson, Vanessa Hudgens and Rachel Korine. During the panel for their flick, probably one of the greatest things imaginable happened -– they belted out a rendition of Britney’s “…Baby One More Time” after being asked about rumors that their singing in the movie was lip-synched.

Turns out, even Britney was pretty impressed with Selena, since her vocal chops clearly outweighed the other ladies. She tweeted, “Awww @selenagomez can duet with me anytime! PS- I heard @springbreakers is AAA-MAZING! Can’t wait to see it!” Please make this happen. Just… please.
In other Spring Breakers news, Vanessa and Selena are the two stars out of the dark and gritty film getting the most buzz, considering their squeaky-clean Disney backgrounds. Turns out, stepping away from their breakout roles was their plan all along.
“Disney is a machine, and I’m grateful for it, but I feel like being part of that environment made me crave the reaction from other projects even more,” Selena told the New York Times. “Creatively this is where I wanted to go.”
Vanessa added, “I want people to look at me not as that girl from High School Musical, but as an actress they admire. With Spring Breakers I’m looking for a reaction for sure. I want to shock people.” Well, girls, based on the trailer and what we’ve seen so far, that shock-factor is definitely mission accomplished.
Check out the latest trailer for the film and you can catch it when it hits theaters on March 22nd!
