She began as a teenage idol, but this girl was willing to show that she was matured already. With a hot boyfriend and a role in the new movie, we know she will be successful.

Selena Gomez has a sweet life. Her songs usually top the chart; she has appeared in both small and large screens and she is dating with Justin Bieber – the pop star made students and middle-age women going crazy. Oh, but she is just 19 years old. You might extremely envy her to hear those things but at the moment we sat down with Selena in her home in Los Angeles, those feeling vanished. For one thing, she was 100% practical. Then we quickly knew how this brown-haired girl worked hard to reach that position, so any jealousy turned into the respect.

The conflict of a super star life had against Selena in the beginning. She was born in Texas in a teenage family and grew in poverty. However since she was a little girl, she had big dreams and strict rules in work to make sure that she would become a star. “I love concentrating and working hard”, she said when she sat perfectly in the purple dress. “I want to do everything right. And I’m always eager to be better.”

Her efforts have been repaid. Last year, her band (Selena Gomez and the Scene) had two songs from When the Sun Goes Down won the platinum award and went on tour in the whole country, and she acted in the first movie which was not aimed to children (Monte Carlo). Of course, she maintained a romantic relationship with Bieber. Selena revealed how she became a super star from a provincial girl.

From poor to rich

As we told, Selena was born in Grand Prairie, Texas by a 17-year-old father and 16-year-old mother. “I would have a 3-year-old child if I gave birth at the age of my mother – it’s so terrible to me!”, she burst into laugh. They always had to make ends meet. Selena recalled when her mom’s car was out of fuel on the way to school, and they had to search pennies under seats to buy much gasoline. “Oh my god, it happened 12 times”, she reminisced.

Despite the fact that they were poor, Selena’s mother wanted her daughter to be well-educated. Thus, she took Selena to concerts, museums and theaters. “I never thought that I would quit Grand Prairie’s conception if there was not my mother”.  Being obsessed by Britney Spears and Hilary Duff, Selena was focusing on singing and acting while most girls at that age were still playing Barbie. She desired to stand in the limelight so much that she begged her mother to allow her to start auditioning.

7 years old, she had a role in Barney & Friends, which was originally filmed in Texas. In the filming set, she met her childhood friend who was a pop star later, Demi Lovato. They became so close that few years later, their families moved to Los Angeles together and lived in the same house in order to let two girls enter Hollywood. “We didn’t have much money at that time, so we lived together to share expenses”, Selena said. “There were 7 girls living in an attic, including sisters and mothers, and everything. It was really interesting.” 

Her friendship with Demi had its ups and downs. The busy occupation caused them far apart, and recently Lovato talked about the bipolar disorder (manic-depressive disorder). “That’s when she and I pursuing different paths, because we noticed who we were. Now, we become better.”

Moving to California after she had obtained the lead role in Wizards of Waverly Placeseries of Disney turned out a wise action. Following the footsteps of her childhood, Selena became a big star. Nevertheless, she didn’t want to stick to the success in Disney. She attempted to get a bigger career, so she began to record and accept other roles to mark herself as something more different than a teenage queen.

In contrast to some actresses were ruined by their fame, Selena kept herself on the ground. “It’s a flighty industry, and I want to ensure that I’m not stuck in it. Till now, I’ve done a good thing.”

The top producer of Hollywood, Denise Di Novi, agreed that she tried to live realistically and she was very lovely. “You will immediately support and love her. Moreover, she works hard unbelievably – she reminds me of a racehorse. She knows what she wants and she is happy the most when she is totally sunk in work”, Di Novi, who worked with Selena in Ramona and Beezus in 2010 considered. “She has the sophistication and intelligence of emotions far beyond her age.”

Leighton Meester, who became close to Selena when they filmed Monte Carlo, thought the same. “I am 24 years old and live with a 17-year-old girl but I don’t feel that way”, she said. “She is really wiser than her age. But she is also innocent, and I hope it would never disappear, as she sees the beauty in every little thing”.

Growing up on screens has many pros (she earned a lot of money and traveled around the world) and cons (she had the first kiss in front of 4 cameras – “I’m trembling!”). Currently, Selena is in the time she tries to erase the teenage image and wants to seriously consider as an adult. To do that, she is investing in acting more harshly. She was nominated to play with James Franco and Vanessa Hudgens in Spring Breakers, the film of the controversy director – Harmony Korine, who wrote the reckless drama about sex, Kids in 1995.

“I’m choosing the role, movie and music may be quite different and both of them can make everyone passionate”, Selena said. “But it is helping me to improve and walk small steps”.
