Selena Gomez was born in Texas on July 22, 1992. After her parents’ split, she remained with her mother, who was 16 years old at the time of Gomez’s birth. Her mom inspired Gomez’s interest in acting, and in 2002 she joined “Barney & Friends,” where she appeared with fellow child actor, Demi Lovato.
In 2007, Gomez’s own Disney Channel series, “Wizards of Waverly Place,” premiered, making her one of the most popular stars in her age group, alongside the likes of Miley Cyrus. The show, which won three Emmy Awards, continued through 2012. Gomez segued into music with the band Selena Gomez & The Scene, releasing its first album in 2009, with the hit “Naturally,” followed by her first major movie role in “Ramona and Beezus.” Subsequent movies included “Monte Carlo” and “Spring Breakers.”
After two additional albums with The Scene, Gomez released her first solo record, “Stars Dance,” in 2013, earning tremendous success with the single “Come and Get It.” In late 2014, she signed a new record deal with Interscope, and is working on her second solo effort, in addition to new film projects.
Best friends with Taylor Swift, Gomez went public with her relationship with Justin Bieber in 2011, and the stars have had an on-and-off romance ever since. Gomez is also a UNICEF ambassador, and has participated in a number of other charitable endeavors, including We Day. Gomez’s brand has further included a clothing line, a fragrance, and several endorsement deals.
