Now that Selena’s achieved mega-babe status, it’s getting harder and harder to remember that she got her start as a Disney kid. The Spring Breakers star got to cross paths with a few TV legends growing up too – take a look!
She was named after a pop star
Selena Maria Gomez was born in Grand Prairie, Texas, on July 22, 1992. Her look-alike mom named her after the ’90s singer Selena (basically the Madonna of Latin music), pretty much setting baby Selena up for her own run at stardom.
Her first TV role was with Barney
As a kid who grew up on Barney & Friends, I am mega jealous that seven-year-old Selena got to be one of Barney the dinosaur’s pals in 1999. While her real TV breakthrough was yet to come, she got to meet her BFF Demi Lovato on set.
At 11, Selena made her film debut in the opening scene of 2003′s Spy Kids 3D: Game Over with the least original character name ever: “waterpark girl.” At least she did 3D before 3D movies were cool, right? Way to stay ahead of the curve, Selena!
In episode two of The Baby Bachelor, Wesley finds himself on a group date where secrets are revealed and tensions get a little high amongst the girls in the house. Let’s just say, Jesse goes all Desperate Housewives and flips a chair. Wesley is quite the charmer as he becomes pretty smitten with 26-year-old Ashley as he gave the cutest quote ever, ” I’m into the big girl alright.”
Now just down to two bachelorettes left, will Wesley find love? I can’t wait for the thrilling conclusion. But why is he already at the final two? Doesn’t Jimmy know that he needs to make this last for as long as possible?
Brace yourselves for the cutest four minutes you will ever see today.
Episode 1 of The Baby Bachelor is finally out, and it pokes fun at ridiculous shows like The Bachelor and The Bachelorette.
Starring Jimmy Kimmel’s nephew Wesley, this adorable tot becomes a Baby Bachelor and is already looking for THE ONE.
While still a wee one, Wesley is already quite the gentleman. Opening doors and comforting the other girls, it’s refreshing to see that he isn’t one of THOSE boys constantly giving himself a cootie shot from touching the opposite sex!
The company Abercrombie & Fitch has come under fire lately. And reasonably so.
A 2006 interview with A&F CEO Mike Jeffries went viral in the past couple of weeks, where he appears to have no conscience in saying something as insulting as this:
“Candidly, we go after the cool kids. We go after the attractive all-American kid with a great attitude and a lot of friends. A lot of people don’t belong [in our clothes], and they can’t belong. Are we exclusionary? Absolutely. Those companies that are in trouble are trying to target everybody: young, old, fat, skinny. But then you become totally vanilla.”
If you’re an emotional person, you better get some tissues ready.
At the request of his grandfather, Redditor stevieboy1984 turned to the internet community to see if anyone could clean up a scanned image of his grandfather’s photo from World War II during his service in the Navy.
Proving that the world can be a nice place, several Redditors offered their photoshop skills to help restore the photo. At the end of it all, stevieboy1984 received six variations of the photo before handing his grandfather a framed version of top commenter unhi’s submission.
It’s these little things that restore my faith in humanity. The Reddit community is awesome!
I must have had the attention-span of a cute puppy, because I am also entertained by the funny noises of a door-stopper.
There’s just something really addictive to seeing it go BOING BOING BOING.
Am I the only one to experience this? Yeah? I guess I’ll go hide in a corner now.
World, this is Rev. Rev is a dog that can sing along to Adele’s “Make You Feel My Love.” According to the description, his owner has been singing this song to Rev since he was a puppy. You got my vote, Rev, for the world’s best singing dog.
Everyone loves a good love story. How else could you explain the myriads of terrible dating shows and romantic comedies?
Late night host Jimmy Kimmel takes it one step further with his new upcoming segment The Baby Bachelor. It’s both adorable and very, very creepy because toddlers shouldn’t be dating each other! They should be thinking the other has cooties and running away! But alas, my heart melted as this too young bachelor gives one crying contestant a little kiss.
Dammit, Kimmel! Why do you make me feel these things?!
When some rules just can’t be broken, take some inspiration from this dog who desperately tries to fetch his frisbee from the swimming pool without having to jump in. While the dog probably knows it would be easier to jump in and save his toy from a watery grave, his small victory probably will keep him from sleeping outside that night.
We all know that when it comes to pulling on girls’ heartstrings, all it takes is an Ed Sheeran song to get us feeling all warm and fuzzy inside. Why? Because, sad or happy, somehow Ed knows exactly how we’re feeling at all times. How? He’s a “Ginger Genuis” that’s how.
In this latest video, self-proclaimed “romantically-challenged filmaker” Tommy Wooldridge tries his luck at getting a girlfriend by using some famous lyrics from “Lego House” and “Give Me Love.” The video has been getting a lot of hits lately and it might have something to do with Ed personally giving it his stamp of approval on Twitter.
Sadly, the lyrics don’t prove to be successful on Tommy’s search for love. But to be fair a lot of the girls claimed to have been already taken. That’s what they said when he tried picking up the ladies with Taylor Swift lyrics…
What do you think? Would Ed Sheeran lyrics work as a pick-up line for you?
This cat was so desperate to make his way outside that he did what I thought – before seeing this video – was impossible: he opens five COMPLETELY SHUT doors by himself to make his way onto the porch and into the sunshine. Not one, not two, not three, not four…five. I was impressed when he got the first one. Baffled when he got the second. Floored when he got the third. And then after that it kind of hit a plateau. I mean, how much amazing stunts can I watch a cat do before I start feeling sorry for myself?
In this case, it was 10 – It’s so unbelievable I had to watch it twice.
Dang, this pup has better moves than me!
Dancing along to Eminem’s “Shake That”, this dog takes booty shaking to another level. In fact, I think he’s SO GOOD that he could even compete with Beyonce.
Shake on, dawgy dog!
Sometimes, it doesn’t take much to create a heartwarming moment. Seeing a kitten with a can over its head, this cheerful man embraces the animal and helps the animal out of its predicament.
If you love cat videos, this is an ABSOLUTE MUST WATCH.
Taking the stage at Stockholm, Sweden on May 8, our fave boys from One Direction did a tribute to a boy band original: Backstreet Boys’ “I Want it That Way.”
We’re sure 1D can make any girl scream by just appearing but the men of the Backstreet Boys were very impressed.
Tweeting: “Heard @OneDirection did an impromtu performance of “I Want It That Way” in Sweden last night. Well done bros! http://youtu.be/7c2zn7hVRtY“, it’s safe to say that the revival of pop groups ARE OFFICIALLY BACK.
But looks to me 1D may have just been returning some favours. NKOTBSB covered ‘What Makes You Beautiful last year!
Either way, this is cute! Please do more covers!!
Showing everyone just how adorable he is (like he really needed to prove that to anyone…), Darren Criss sings all of our of favourite 90′s themes.
This is almost flawless, except for the fact that he can’t remember the theme for The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
How could you Darren?! Everyone knows that one.
Somebody give this couple free gas FOR LIFE, because they definitely know how to have fun. With a free tank of gas on the line, news anchor Jack Rafferty gets this musical pair to belt out Bon Jovi and the Eurythmics.
This is what I call true bliss and happiness. These two also seem to be great fun during karaoke sessions.
You know your child has officially entered into beast mode when he can get through anything.
Testing out the ever-so-ticklish scalp massager (well, for me it’s bothersome…), this child is able to recover quickly after banging his head on the table.
I swear, kids are built like machines. It’s too bad we tend to get more sensitive as we age
When it’s the middle of winter, I like to throw all of my fresh-out-of-the-dryer clothes onto my bed and cocoon myself in its warmth. This cat found the best way to keep warm: stick your head on popcorn. If only Tina Fey saw this video before 30 Rock ended. I’m sure Liz Lemon would’ve dunked her head in a warm bowl of popcorn too.
Avertisers Saatchi and Saatchi Sydney teamed up with post-production company Heckler to create this short video of kids eating foods for the first time for TEDx Sydney. While kids doing anything is adorable, this video is as cute as can be as their reactions to eating gross things like Vegemite and anchovies are played back in slow motion. You can see how the children react with their whole bodies. While I did feel a little bad that they had to endure some pretty gross stuff, just wait until the very end when all you want to do is yell “SUCCESS!” with one happy baby.
Move over Sophia Grace, Ellen Degeneres has a new adorable young act and his name is Kai. When Kai visited Ellen for the second time he managed to acheive a lot between his visits: he met Bruno Mars on a plane, got Ellen to agree to be his girlfriend, and belted out a tune. You will not be able to handle all this cuteness. He serenades Ellen with “When I Was Your Man,” and got her a bracelet. Who can say no to that? The best part is when Ellen says “Well this is going to make news,” when he asks her to go steady. Poor Kai didn’t get the memo.
