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!
I seriously don’t know the relationship status between Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber. I thought they were back together but I just can’t assume these things anymore. Last month Selena’s on/off-again boyfriend Justin Bieber landed a double cover of Teen Vogue, and now it’s her turn to grace the newsstands with her cover of InStyle.
But Selena’s won’t be the only face you see on the magazine shelves, here are June’s other cover stars:
Selena’s former BFF gets on the magazine action too as she cover’s the June issue of Company.
However, when it comes to former Disney child actresses none can compare to Miley Cyrus. She is this month’s cover megastar! Not only did she land a double cover for Elle UK but she also got three covers for V Magazine. It’s safe to say that we’ve all moved on from Cyrus’ Hannah Montana days as she is a bona fide high fashion darling.

Selena Gomez is shedding her Disney Channel look in her latest music video for “Come And Get It.”
After releasing some teasers, the video is finally out and is completely different from Selena’s older stuff. The video shows off Selena’s sultry side as she’s seen dancing by fire, swimming in the ocean and in the arms of a hunky guy. Hopefully Justin doesn’t get too jealous now that the two are back together. The video is amazing and fits the Bollywood-inspired sound of the song album perfectly.
Maypole dancers surround the maypole with coloured ribbons on May Day, which is the first day of the month.
While some of you might be celebrating the beginning of May dancing to N’Sync’s “It’s Gonne Be Me” and if you don’t know why perhaps this will give you some sort of clue. Others around the world will be dancing to traditional folk music in celebration of May Day, a traditional European spring festival. So in honour of this lovely spring holiday, I’ll be giving you tips on rocking the floral trend that you can take with you well into the summer. And yeah I know what you’re thinking, florals for spring? How groundbreaking! But yes florals are actually a trend for 2013 for both women and men, so check it out!
Lana Del Rey, the Queen of the floral crown.
So if you missed out on Coachella, don’t fret because May Day is the perfect (and probably the most legitimate) reason for anyone to be wearing a floral crown. Floral crowns were spotted on the runways and magazine but hit the mainstream thanks to sultry singer Lana Del Rey. They became quite the phenomenon at Coachella and rightly overtook the Native American headdress (this should have never been a trend in the first place) as the hair accessory of choice for concertgoers. Don’t be surprised to see floral crowns at various music festivals this summer.
These poor girls were victims of a Jimmy Kimmel prank at this year’s Coachella.

Things are going great for 20 year old Selena Gomez. Not only has she recently fangirled over meeting Brad Pitt and seem to be rekindling her romance with Justin Bieber, Selena also has the release of her new music video for “Come and Get It” to look forward to.
In this trailer, fans get a glimpse of what they can expect in the upcoming music video. Showing off her seductive side, Selena is seen belly dancing in fields as well as swimming. Fans will have to be patient to view the video in its entirety. According to her Twitter account though, it should be out soon!
While most people have been focusing on what appears to be a Jelena reunion, Selena has been focusing heavily on promoting her new single “Come and Get It.”
Her latest performance was at last night’s Radio Disney Music Awards (where she won Best Female Artist), and it was good. Not great, but not terrible. Her dancing is as good as always, and while she doesn’t have to strongest vocals, her live performances are definitely improving. Let’s just hope her rekindled romance doesn’t distract her from all the hard work she’s clearly been doing.
Check out her performance here:
The answer to “Are they back together, or not?!” can probably be answered in a new picture Justin Bieber shared on his Instagram page yesterday.
Featuring him without a shirt and being cuddled by his on/off girlfriend Selena Gomez, the picture was accompanied by a caption that said, ‘”You’ve been makin music for too long babe come cuddle” -her.’
Interestingly enough, the Biebs didn’t delete this photo like he initially did with the first picture he posted of the two together. But considering the intimate nature of the image, it’s safe to say these two are definitely BACK ON and want the world to know it!
Oh, young love. How fragile and tender it is.
Justin Bieber tweeted a picture of himself and ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez on Sunday, which he promptly deleted afterwards but not quickly enough for Beliebers and Selenators to miss. The two pop stars sparked rumours of possibly rekindling their relationship late last week when they were spotted kissing in Oslo, Norway Thursday night.
Oh No They Didn’t compared the Bieber’s short-lived couple shot to a recent Gomez selfie comparing her spike-y manicured nails, suggesting their meeting is quite recent:
What do you think, Beliebers and Selenators? Should they get back together?
In an interview on On Air with Ryan Seacrest Monday, Selena Gomez announced that she will hit the road this summer for a 56-date world tour.
Her “Stars Dance” tour will be kicked off in Vancouver, August 4.
Gomez will have numerous performances in Canadian cities (dates below) before her European leg of the tour – Norway, Sweden, France, England, Austria, Russia, Italy and more. After her stint in Europe, Gomez will finish her tour in North America on November 27. This summer will be very busy for Gomez, but I’m sure she will love seeing the world, and meeting all of her cross-country fans.
Will you go see Selena Gomez in concert this summer?
CANADIAN TOUR DATES:
August 14— Vancouver, British Columbia (Pepsi Live at Rogers Arena)
August 16— Calgary, Alberta (Scotiabank Saddledome)
August 17— Edmonton, Alberta (Rexall Place)
August 18— Saskatoon, Saskatchewan (Credit Union Center)
August 19— Winnipeg, Manitoba (MTS Centre)
August 22— Ottawa, Ontario (Scotiabank Place)
August 23— Montreal, Quebec (Bell Center)
August 24— Toronto, Ontario (Air Canada Centre)
After having her new single leaked, Selena Gomez finally officially debuted her new track on Ryan Seacrest’s website on Saturday—two days earlier than it was set to be released, and eight days before she performs the track at the MTV Movie Awards. The Selenators even managed to crash the website when the song was released.
I have a team working to get RyanSeacrest.com back up… Selenators, u guys are in beast mode!!

Selena Gomez wants to show us just how happy she is being single. “Come & Get It” is a new sound that we have yet to hear from the new star. It has a neat techno beat and interestingly empowering lyrics. If you thought “Love You Like a Love Song” was catchy, you will love this song. The single has already received great reception so far, and Gomez has thanked numerous fans over twitter individually, and collectively.

Alex Russo no more, Gomez is growing up in a graceful and tasteful way. Bye bye, Bieber.
LISTEN TO “COME & GET IT” BY SELENA GOMEZ HERE:
You’ve got to admit, Justin Bieber’s European leg of his Believe tour has been a bit crazy. I swear I can’t go a few days without hearing news about him. From getting booed at the O2 arena in London, to Selena’s “Well, that makes two of us” on Letterman when the late night host said that he made Justin cry— it’s actually been a crazy few months.
It’s not all that bad for Justin, however, since he has had a few good moments while in Europe. Here’s a graph detailing the high and lows of his tour so far. Keep in mind, there are a lot of stories that have come out from Justin that I couldn’t fit on the graph, like how he honoured the death of Briana, a fan who he’s met that passed away, and getting schools in Norway to rearrange their exam schedule. (I mean seriously, you have to be THAT awesome and important to get a few schools to change their exams schedule!). Take a look below:
With Spring Breakers in theatres, you can’t help to wonder – when did Selena Gomez grow up? It’s only been a year since the Disney star has appeared on Wizard of Waverly Place, but with her career continuing to skyrocket, it’s been a busy one. Then you look at her co-star Vanessa Hudgens who has completely transition herself from sweet Gabriella on High School Musical to her own person, taking on mature roles. Too bad some other Disney stars can’t say the same.
Here’s just a quick and handy chart to show you what life is like after Disney.
First former Disney stars Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens, now the Disney princesses, it looks like everyone is getting wild during spring break.
College Humor took the liberty of spoofing the much talked about Spring Breakers movie with all our favourite Disney princesses. Not everything is all “Happy Ever After” for Jasmine, Ariel, Cinderella and Snow White as they rob stepmothers, get crunk with a cornrowed Genie and shoot some magical wands off into the air. The girls get so wild that Mickey Mouse would probably chose to shoot himself rather than watch.
“It means no worries for the rest of your days, y’all,” the Genie says.
WATCH THE FAKE TRAILER BELOW:
Selena Gomez is all kinds of adorable, even if her Spring Breakers‘ character hopes to break her out of that mold.
It’s hard to think of her as anything but sweet especially when she’s singing the “Mario Kart Love Song” with Jimmy Fallon on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Will they start selling their duet on iTunes? I want. Now.
Spring Breakers star Selena Gomez stopped by The Late Show with David Letterman last night to promote the new controversial movie.
The former Disney darling was charming throughout the whole interview, especially when the topic of her now ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber came up. The show’s host, David Letterman, talked about how the last time Bieber was a guest on the show, Letterman made him cry.
“Well then, that makes two of us,” quipped Gomez.
She pretty much stopped the interview as she had Letterman and audience in stitches. Letterman even gave props to Gomez for her comedic timing. “That’s pretty strong,” he remarked.
What do you think of Selena Gomez’s Justin Bieber joke? Did she go too far or was it fair game?
WATCH SELENA GOMEZ ON DAVID LETTERMAN BELOW (Justin Bieber talk starts at the 5:30 mark):
Spring Breakers stars Selena Gomez, Rachel Korine and Ashley Benson broke out into song and sang Britney Spears’ ubiquitous hit “Hit Me Baby One More Time” during their SXSW film panel.
The trio (who was missing Vanessa Hudgens) wanted to prove that they weren’t lip syncing in the movie. Funny because they sound just fine to me live.
Beliebers everywhere have brought an awful lot of hate on the pop princess Selena Gomez after she ditched the singer and broke his young heart into a million little pieces…or something like that. And now they are enraged again because they believe she is taking another stab at her ex.
She posted a video of her and her friends dancing to Dustin Tavella’s ‘Everybody Knows (Your Boyfriend is a Douchebag). Now, Selena’s groups of friends post videos dancing to other people’s songs all the time, but some people are saying the video is her response to Justin’s recent string of scandals in London.
I’m going to give Selena the benefit of the doubt. She seems like she’s just having a good time, and was not trying to be malicious. What young 20-something doesn’t love having a dance party with their friends?
Check out the video below:
Dear Justin Bieber,
It’s your 19th birthday today. Happy birthday! The older you get, the more mature you’re supposed to be.
I don’t know about you, but I feel like 19 is such an important year. The most important thing about being nineteen is that you’re now legal to drink all over Canada. We know that you probably get the star treatment and like most teenagers, you’ve been doing this for quite a while. But if you were still back in your hometown, we’d know that tonight you’ll be drinking and clubbing until your liver falls apart. So, make a trip to the Great White North and do just that. Just know your limit and don’t drive. If you want to just chill at home, that’s cool too. Not everyone wants to get black out drunk on their big day and subsequently loses memory of what happened.
So let’s talk more about that maturity thing I’ve mentioned before. Lately, your fashion choices are a bit questionable. Read more…
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. It’s time to catch up with our favourite starlets, drama queens and wannabees. This week, J-biebs shares the love on Valentine’s Day, One direction teases us with a new video and surprise, surprise, Kevin Federline may be in trouble.
HIT: One Direction goes Global with their new charity Single.
Okay Directioners, you’ve been waiting patiently and today, you can finally see the video for their new single, “One Way or Another (teenage Kicks)”. Last week, our favourite British boys teased us with a preview of their latest project. In this super cute music video, the boys find themselves monkeying around with kids from around the world. Adorable! All of the proceeds from the track will go to U.K. charity, Comic Relief’s annual fundraiser, Red Nose Day.
MISS: Chris Brown is caught hanging out with ex Karreuche Tran.
While RiRi was off in London for Fashion Week, the always charming Chris Brown may have had a little fun without her. According to Perez Hilton, Breezy and his ex, Karreuche Tran, arrived at last weekend’s NBA All Star weekend, but may have had a not-so-secret rendez-vous at the mansion Chris rented out! Karrueche supposedly Instagrammed a pic while at the mansion but later deleted it. Interesting….
P!nk’s definitely got bikini bod ready to go. In her ”The Truth About Love” tour, the singer shows off her sexy physic in a long-sleeved crop top and bedazled black pants. But seriously this picture makes me want to throw out the tubs of Ben & Jerry’s I’ve stashed in my freezer. Nah, maybe next week…
MISS: K-Fed joins the Tax Lien Club
Uncle Sam wants you, Federline. The D-list rapper,who has as much street cred as my Bubbie, apparently owes the IRS big! Brit-Brit’s baby daddy is just the latest celeb to join the Tax Lien Club! According to TMZ, The lien is for over $57,000 in tax payments Kevin missed in 2009 and 2010! I wonder if he’ll be releasing any more “chart topping” singles to help pay this off? Well there’s always K-Mart, K-Fed.
HIT: J-Biebs spreads the love on Valentine’s Day.
This Canadian heart-throb had plenty of love to share on cupid’s holiday. “The As Long As You Love Me” singer tweeted: “U should know you are beautiful. Happy Valentine’s Day.” Awwh thanks Biebs!! But who are we kidding, this tweet was clearly directed to ex Selena Gomez. If you were my boyfriend, Bieber, I’d never let you go! LOL!
MISS: Oscar Pistorius hits the courtroom
The paralympian appeared before a judge in Pretoria, South Africa after he allegedly murdered his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp. Save the waterworks, Pistorius. After he was charged with one count of murder, all he did was cry. Pistorius claims that he shot the supermodel because he thought she was an intruder. Police aren’t buying it because the athlete’s been charged with “previous allegations of a domestic nature.”
We were all rooting for you, Pistorius! Why did you have to let us down? RIP Reeva
Being single on Valentine’s Day is what you make of it: utterly depressing as you watch romcom after romcom or just another day minus the flowers and chocolate.
Just in case you see the day as the former, take solace in the fact that these good-looking celebrities are also single on Valentine’s Day. I mean, if they can’t get a date, what hope do we really have?
Just don’t use this list as an excuse to stalk them during your desperate attempts to pencil in a last minute date. I don’t want to be the reason why you’re stuck in the local county jail for the night instead of at home, scouring the internet with your cat by your side.
