Selena Gomez Facts
Like Britney, Christina and Miley before her, Selena is an ex-Disney Channel star who shed her mouse ears and became super-hot.
She's also the lead singer of pop-rock band Selena Gomez & The Scene, who’ve released four bazillion-selling albums.
She was romantically linked to Justin Bieber but backed out of that soon after. We're glad about that one too.
Why We Love Selena Gomez
Over the last few years, Selena Gomez has been walking a well-worn path that’s previously been travelled by the likes of Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus, Christina Aguilera and Vanessa Hudgens: first, Selena found mega-fame amongst tweenage girls by starring in a hit Disney Channel show – something called Wizards Of Waverly Place; then, branching out from acting, she kicked off a hugely successful pop career; then came a proper, grown-up scandal – leaked (and probably fake) topless photos; and finally, she demonstrated that she’d left her wholesome Disney days behind her by starring in controversial crime-thriller Spring Breakers.
Et voila! That’s how the super-hot Selena you know and love today was created. So – who’s next to escape Mickey Mouse’s clutches and go rogue...?
