Selena Gomez is obsessed with Amy Schumer.
The “Come and Get It” hitmaker was delighted to be asked to present the Trainwreck star with the Hollywood Comedy Award at last night’s Hollywood Film Awards, joking she didn’t think she would have been first choice but was still thrilled to share a stage with the funnywoman at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
She told the audience: ”I talk about her obsessively. I’ve tweeted her often. I try to impersonate her and it doesn’t really work. I actually just met her so basically what I’m saying is I’m really happy that clearly Jennifer Lawrence wasn’t able to do this tonight because I love you.”
However, when she took to the stage, the Inside Amy Schumer star was quick to reassure the singer-and-actress that she had always wanted her to present her with the accolade.
She said: ”I didn’t even ask Jen–Selena, you were my first choice.”
Selena, 23, also praised Amy for being inspirational and the first comedian ”to speak to the women of her generation.”
She added: ”Amy, you’ve inspired me not take myself too seriously when I sit on my couch and I’m depressed about certain things. You constantly made me feel I’m a bad ass even though most of the time I’m not. You say the things I wish I could say and you never ever make feel bad about anything I do in my personal life.”
