Selena Gomez reveals tour essentials

Selena Gomez's tour rider requests are "incense, pickles and ramen".

The singer is set to start her Stars Dance World Tour in August which will involve her spending three months travelling on the road.

The 20-year-old doesn't have any diva-like demands, but does expect three certain things to be provided to keep her happy.

"Incense, pickles always," Gomez revealed to MTV. "I don't know. I actually have a boring rider. I'll be honest... ramen. That's what I have. I'm more about food and apparently incense."

Selena also shared her inspiration for the name of her tour. The former Disney chose the title as a reflection of the performance element to her upcoming showcase.

"It's actually a track on the record and I just felt it was a perfect name for every track that's on the album," Selena said. "They have their own individual stamp and style to it, but with this tour and wanting to incorporate more of the performing aspect, I thought it was the perfect way for kicking it off."

As a result of the high energy dance routines she's planning, Selena's started to get in shape. She's hitting the gym in preparation for the tour, which is something she usually avoids.

"I want it almost to tell, not necessarily a story, but I want it to feel like a big rave," she explained. "When I started performing and I was maybe 16 or 17 half the time it was Wizards [of Waverly Place] fan base so it was a little bit of a younger fan base. They could not care that I was on that stage they were braiding their hair, but they were dancing and having the best time and honestly that's what I want. Whether you go and you don't care what I do on that stage, just have a great time I want it to feel so powerful and everybody just dance and let loose."

Selena has another reason to be dancing for joy. She revealed on her Twitter page yesterday that she is going to be a big sister.

"Hope all the amazing moms had a great day! I have the best momma in the world :)) I love you so much!" Selena tweeted on the US date for Mother's Day, along with a photo in which her hand is laid over her mother's belly.

    Driving a $900,000 Porsche 918 Spyder to the future

    It’s more than just its inherent speed, or the whooshing noise that fills the cabin like a school choir jamming with James Hetfield. It’s what it represents in an industry full of skeptics. It’s a portal into the future – a time capsule left by some mad scientist born decades too soon. It’s something that shouldn’t exist. And yet it does.
