US singer Selena Gomez has had quite a fright after getting stuck in an elevator in Paris.

Gomez is in the French capital for Paris Fashion Week, but the excitement came to a grinding halt when she and a group of passengers in a lift got trapped between floors at an undisclosed venue.

The singer took to Twitter on Tuesday to post a 19-second video of her harrowing journey.

"That time we got stuck in an elevator in Paris... " she captioned the brief footage.


"If we keep talking, the oxygen..." Gomez starts to say in the video before a male next to the pop star yells to someone on the other side of the elevator entrance to pry open the metal doors.

The man finally manages to release the doors, much to the relief of Gomez and her pals, who cheered as they prepared to escape.

The lift drama happened on the same day the singer arrived in Paris, where she is expected to attend shows for the final two days of Paris Fashion Week.

Her model friend Gigi Hadid has already walked the runway in a number of shows, including an appearance at the Balmain presentation last week.

Hadid and fellow model Kendall Jenner hit headlines after appearing on the catwalk with switched hair colours for the show.

Naturally blonde Hadid dyed her hair a dark brown, while brunette Jenner tried to find out if blondes really do have more fun with her new hairdo.

However, the swap didn't last long, as they went back to their normal hues for the Chanel show at the Grand Palais des Champs-Elysees.
