“I’m trying to get into my singing career or my acting career.”
Before dropping an album where she’s nearly naked on the cover and having a very public relationship with teen heartthrob Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez was doing what she does best: acting. Even at 11 years old, Gomez had no problem slaying her audition for the Disney show “Wizards of Waverly Place.” After she totally owns her audition, the young starlet talks about her experience on “Barney and Friends,” where she worked on her chops at a very young age. She says her goals in the entertainment business are to sing and act – like Britney Spears.
“I want to do that when I get older,” Gomez said. “I want to be both [a singer and actor], you know, like Britney.”
Good thing the young Tejana’s mother convinced her to audition for the show, or we wouldn’t have “Spring Breakers” or albums such as “Stars Dance” and “Revival.”
