Watch an aged Katy Perry sing about lost love! Read More »

At this year's 2011 Jingle Ball, Selena Gomez revealed to her fans that one of her biggest musical inspirations is none other than Katy Perry. The "Who Says" singer not only gave a shout-out to Perry, but she also dedicated a slowed-down version of "The One That Got Away" to the pop sensation.

Before performing the ballad, Selena said:

She's been really wonderful and just a really good person to me ... In honor of Katy, we wanted to do this song.

Selena is no stranger to covering music's biggest hits though. Most notably, SelGo has mastered the tricky beginning to Nicki Minaj's "Super Bass". Watch the video below to see her spit out Nicki's mad rhymes.

    Really? I know more ppl who think this version is better and they don't even like her. Selena did really good with the emotions in her version and this is a ballad so that's why her voice sounds softer, doesn't mean she can't sing. I think she sounds beautiful and this is actually better

    Maybe you think that but that doesn't make it true. Please stop preaching, a lot of ppl think she's a lovely singer with great music. Haters gonna hate, but lovers will always win ;) I agree with the other person, get a life. Why waste your time here if u don't like her?

    Oh, for a lot of reasons really. You must live under a rock or your jealous because it's not like you will ever be as successful :) You ask why she's famous but not why ppl like Paris Hilton and Kim K are famous...wow.

    People cover songs for fun, not because they're music is crap you dipshit. And FYI, Selena has a lot of good music. Your just an oblivious idiot who listens to songs that always talk about drugs and sex apparently. What a loser, yet he's talking on this precious girl.
