“Selena Gomez is having a very good year. Wizards of Waverly Place, the show she’s starred in since age 13, is in its final season, so at 19, she’s -officially graduating from the -Disney Channel and joining the grown-up Hollywood universe. First project? The girlfriend-getaway summer rom-com Monte Carlo, in which she starred alongside Katie Cassidy and Gossip Girl’s Leighton Meester. Then there’s her -single “Who Says,” which zoomed to platinum status off her latest album, When the Sun Goes Down (Britney Spears even co-wrote one song). Plus, in case you’ve missed their extreme cuteness in the tabloids, she’s dating Justin Bieber. We’re lucky she had time to talk!”
On having a visible presence on Twitter and Facebook: “I love that I can stay connected with my fans and be able to tell them what’s going on—their opinions are so important to me. But at the same time, it’s very weird. I think the Internet can be a great thing but also really evil. Something can instantly hurt your feelings.”
On Justin Bieber fans posting threatening messages about her online: “Yeah, I’m human, so of course certain things sometimes hurt. I just laugh at it.”
It’s mostly a publicist’s wet dream, but the pictures are super-cute. Grown up, but not too much so. Like a girl spending the afternoon in her closet trying on outfits for friends. Sweet.
Although her lipstick looks like it was provided by Sherwin Williams.
