Our Style Expert Series continues with lovely and talented Selena Gomez! We couldn't be more excited to have the star of Disney Channel’s Wizards of Waverly Place as our Featured Style Expert today! Selena is also about to debut her sophomore album A Year Without Rain as a follow up to the successful Kiss & Tell released last year. She can most recently be seen in the feature film Ramona & Beezus and will next be seen in Monte Carlo opposite Katie Cassidy and Leighton Meester. As if TV, movies, and music weren’t enough, Selena also has a clothing line for Kmart Dream Out Loud which is currently in stores (and on Polyvore!) She's also been repeatedly honored as an ambassador for UNICEF. We caught up with the very busy Selena to ask her a few questions:
What inspired you to get into the entertainment industry?
What inspired me to get into the entertainment industry was watching my mom do theater when I was a kid. I was an only child and have always enjoyed entertaining my family and friends.
What’s been your career highlight or favorite professional moment?
My career highlight is having won two Emmys with my cast for Wizards of Waverly Place.
What’s next for you?
I just hope to continue to do what I am doing, I enjoy both my music and film career and hope to continue being as successful as I can be in both.
What advice would you give to aspiring singers/actors?
My advice for young aspiring singers/actors is to be passionate about it, you will be told no a lot in this business and you have to really want and continue to work hard to achieve your goals.
