How could you forget?


Apparently, she hasn’t forgotten about it either and maybe even misses it a bit.


You see, on January 7, she shared her first Instagram Story of 2017 that featured her chillin’ with WOWP costar David Henrie, who played her brother.

There’s a funny moment where David insists that he launched her Twitter account and that at the time Selena couldn’t even say “Twitter.” Bwahahah. Selena makes sure to mention that he did NOT start her Instagram account. Hmmm, could that be because she wants all the credit for being crowned the queen of Instagram in 2016?

Surely, you haven’t forgotten that Ms. Gomez had the most popular pic of last year.

when your lyrics are on the bottle ? #ad

Selena Gomez is ready to make mountains into movies

The Texas-born singer, actress, and producer has set her sights on a big-screen biopic about Peruvian mountaineer Silvia Vásquez-Lavado who became the first Peruvian woman to summit Mount Everest. Vásquez-Lavado is also the first openly gay woman to scale the Seven Summits in their entirety.

In the Shadow of the Mountain is an upcoming biopic based on Vásquez-Lavado’s memoir of the same name.

The Seven Summits challenge encourages climbers to climb the highest mountain on each continent.

Vásquez-Lavado’s story of pursuit and inspiration will be produced by Scott Budnick’s impact-focused co-finance company One Community. The company is a film, television, and digital content co-financing company that “harnesses the power of storytelling to inspire and encourage positive change in the world.” The film aligns with One Community’s efforts given the fact that Vásquez-Lavado’s story follows her childhood experience of assault and neglect. According to Vásquez-Lavado mountaineering proved to be a source of healing.

Vásquez-Lavado’s memoir In the Shadow of the Mountain is scheduled to be published in winter 2022.

Selena Gomez Explains Why She Didn’t Vote In The Last Election Amid Backlash

Selena Gomez Explains Why She Didn’t Vote In The Last Election Amid Backlash

Voting is as much of a civic duty as it is a right.

In many ways (considering the various people who are citizens of our country and are unable to vote and those people who aren’t citizens and unable to do so in their own countries) making the conscientious decision to not vote is an extremely privileged action. So when singer and actress Selena Gomez admitted to giving up her vote in 2016, fans were quick to call her out.

As a result, the actress and mental health advocate is explaining her decision to vote for the first time this year and why she didn’t in the past. Truthfully, it is understandable.

For the very first time, Gomez sat down to talk about the upcoming election with Democratic vice-presidential candidate Kamala Harris.

Speaking with Senator Harris in a video chat that was shared on Instagram, Selena explained that she didn’t vote because of a lack of education and mental health resources.

“To be honest, I think in the past when I was younger, I wasn’t very educated on the voting process,” she told Harris. “The past four years I’ve experienced a lot. I just feel that my vote counts more than ever. As a citizen, as someone who truly, truly cares about their country, not voting is just not an option.”

During their conversation, Harris commended Selena for an “incredible voice on the issue of lupus.”

“My sister wrote this year about the fact that she has lupus. It’s something that we have been, as a family, dealing with for many, many years. There are so many women of color who have lupus, and are still struggling to get the kind of attention and treatment that they deserve,” she explained. “That’s one of the things that Joe and I are fighting for, which is to hold onto the Affordable Care Act and expand it—including what you’ve talked a lot about: mental healthcare.”
