Today*s Star – Selena Gomez

Today*s Star – Selena Gomez

It’s been an interesting ride for Selena Gomez over the past few months… first she reveals she had a MAJOR surgery (kidney transplant) and then she abruptly ended her relationship with The Weeknd to go back to Justin Bieber.

Still, that doesn’t undermine all the good she’s achieved.

Selena Gomez started out as a child actor in Barney & Friends and on The Disney Channel show, The Wizards of Waverly Place. She was a tremendous talent from the time she hit the small screen. But now Selena is past those younger days and is one of the biggest pop stars.

She grew up in Texas and was always fascinated with the entertainment world because of her actress mother. Selena starred in a lot of different things growing up: childrens’ TV shows, commercials, and movies. Towards the end of her very popular acting career on The Disney Channel, she wanted to make the crossover into music.

I think what makes Selena so likable is that she is so relateable. She’s dealt with regular coming of age issues like getting over your first love (and falling back IN love with him… multiple times,) finding your own identity and voice, and trying to make it in your career. Best of all, she’s open to talk about it, which is a great example to people dealing with the same things. It’s refreshing to have someone be so honest about themselves in the public sphere.
