Selena Gomez Goes Out With A ‘Bang, Bang, Bang’

January 27, 2012

Selena Gomez has been in the scene since she was just a little girl, showcasing her talents through singing, acting, and most recently the launch of her own “Dream Out Loud” clothing line. She is most widely known from her Emmy Award Winning show, “Wizards of Waverly Place”, which just aired its final episode earlier this month. She has since starred in movies such as, “Ramona and Beezus”, “Monte Carlo”, and “Another Cinderella Story”. While Selena’s career in acting seemed more than promising, she decided to venture into the music world as well and since Selena Gomez & The Scene have released their 3 albums, their fandom has grown immensely.

2011 was without a doubt the biggest year of Selena’s career thus far. She spent the year focusing mainly on her music, with the release of her latest album “When The Sun Goes Down” and her first headlining tour. She also hosted the 2011 EMA’s as well as performed at the Much Music Video Awards, Teen Choice Awards, and People’s Choice Awards. That being said, it may come as a surprise that Selena has announced that she plans to take a break from music, and focus more on her acting career. But don’t fret! She won’t be going on a complete hiatus, she will be filming two movies which will take up a majority of 2012, but hopes to dive back into her music by the end of the year!

As the title reads, Selena is doing nothing short of going out with a bang! Just last week, Selena performed at the 2nd Annual UNICEF Charity Concert, which raised over $200,000 to benefit the cause! For those who don’t know, Selena is very much involved with the humanitarian relief foundation, UNICEF, and since being named Ambassador has put forth much effort for the cause. Just a couple of days after she began the South American leg of her We Own The Night Tour, that won’t come to an end until February 11, in Uruguay.

We can’t exactly say we’re happy about her putting her music on the back burner, but we are definitely excited to see what she has in store for these new movies. From what we’ve heard, we’ll be experiencing a whole new Selena. Far from the bubbly, innocent, sweetheart we all know and love, Selena will be portraying an entirely new role in the upcoming film “Spring Breakers”, where she will be playing a partying teen who lands herself in jail!

Share your thoughts with us below! Are you excited to see this new side of Selena? Or would you rather her stick to the “good-girl” role we’re all used to?
