Gomez releases a music video for her single The Heart Wants What It Wants. The video was directed by Dawn Shadforth and filmed entirely in black and white. The video opens with a spoken piece by Gomez and continues to follow her and her love interest throughout the video.
They taped the mic underneath the table when I was shooting the video. And I had shot the video over a year ago. So, in that state — where I was in that place emotionally — I went in and I went into the room by myself, and I looked at the actual mirror in the music video, and I had a conversation (with) myself to every question I had in my mind in that moment: “Wow, this feeling changes everything and you can’t help it.”
