Selena Gomez Biography
Selena Marie Gomez was born on the 22nd of July in the year 1992. She was born in Texas, in Grand Prairie. She kicked off her business journey after a two-year run on a kid’s show: Barney and Friends.
After acting a few bit parts in various movies, Selena Gomez starred as a guest on two Disney show: Hannah Montana and The Suite Life of Zack & Cody.
I still remember I had a clipboard of Hannah Montana wallpaper on it, with Selena Gomez’s pictures in a colorful blue girls’ top. This show and she were pretty famous back then.
In 2007, Selena worked as the lead casting model for another show Wizards of Waverly Place, and two years later that, she released her very first pop album, Kiss & Tell.
She has worked in many film and acting projects including the film of 2013: Spring Breakers and also the album Revival of 2015, featuring the single she released “Good for You,”
Selena Gomez released an album on January 10, 2020: Rare, It was a massive hit for Selena. This is the same album that starred the chart-topping hit song “Lose You to Love Me.”
Many may not know this, Selena had suffered from Lupus ( A disease in which your body’s immune system attacks your tissues and organs) She has also gained praise from the public for sharing her battles with this disease.
The Suite Life of Zack & Cody,’ ‘Wizards of Waverly Place’
In 2006, Selena has worked as a guest-star in the Disney show The Suite Life of Zack & Cody as Gwen on the Disney Channel. I remember it had an Indian version of this show, which goes by the name: Suite Life of Karan & Kabir.
I used to watch this show a lot among other Disney shows like Best of Luck Nikki, this is one is also an adaptation of the American series Good Luck Charlie.
Getting more and more work from Disney, Selena Gomez was offered to play the role of the evil Mikayla for another Disney series: Hannah Montana.
Later she landed her very first main starring role play when the Disney channel offered her as the main cast of the show Wizards of Waverly Place to act as the main protagonist Alexandra Margarita aka Alex Russo in 2007. This was a pretty big hit and ran for another 5 years, till 2012.
‘Another Cinderella Story,’ ‘Princess Protection Program’
Selena Gomez made her first animated movie in 2008, Horton Hears a Who!, and was also starred in Another Cinderella Story by ABC Family (Subsidiary of Walt Disney Television) movie with Andrew Seeley, another fellow Disney Channel actor.
Selena Gomez filmed two projects for the Disney Channel, the first one was Princess Protection Program also starring Demi Lovato in the same film, released in 2009. Also, later the same year, she began working in another Disney film Wizards of Waverly Place: The Movie.
Selena was not only focused on acting but in her singing career as well. In 2008, Selena recorded a cover song of ‘Cruella de Vil” for DisneyMania 6 and went one step ahead in her music career.
Not only this but she recorded many more songs for Disney movies including the movie Another Cinderella Story and a song for the famous animated movie Tinker Bell, a character of the Peter Pan fiction.
She has also done a duet with Demi Lovato in the single “One and the Same” for the movie Princess Protection Program, and also did the four songs for the soundtrack to the series Wizards of Waverly Place: The Movie.
Selena Gomez moved to her new luxorius house in year 2020 worth around $4.9 US Million Dollar, more like she moved in to hernew Mansion in the Los Angelse neighborhood of Encino.
Selena was raised as a Cathlic, and she also wanted a purity ring when she was just 13 years of age, for fulfilling her wish, her father went to the church and had it blessed for her daughter.
These are the exact quoted words by Selena: He actually used me as an example for other kids. I’m going to keep my promise to myself, to my family and to god.”
However, Selena soon stopped wearing the Purity Ring in 2010. In 2017, she quoted that she doesn’t like the term ‘religion‘ and that often times it freaks her out, she also added that: “I don’t know if it’s necessarily that I believe in religion, as much as I believe in faith and a relationship with God.”
In 2016, when a fan asked her a question on twitter about the song ‘Nobody‘ that she sand at a Hillsong Young & Free concert in Los Angeles, that who the lyrics to the song “Nobody” refer to, Selena answered to that tweet by replying that the lyrics of the song Nobody refer to God.
Selena Gomez was diagones with a chronic disease called lupus (I have already explained about this disease above) between 2012 and early 2014.
She came out in September 2017 about her disease when she revealed the news on Instagam about why she’s avoiding public events since last few months.
She revealed that she had received a kidney transplant from her best friend and fellow actress Francia Raisa. This news went viral and many memes were made praising their friendship.
Another devastating news from this surgery was, during the surgery one of Selena’s artery brok and an emergency surgery was done to build a new artery using a vein from Selena’a leg (It’s hard to believe for me that doctors can do such wild and awesome things, doctors are artist too in this way).
Gomez has been pretty open about her struggles with her fans, both about her mental and phsycial challenges, for instance she had been open about her fight with anxiety and depression problems.
She also started seeking therapy in her twenties and also spent lots of time in treatment facilities. She is one of the most followed person on Instagram and when she had reached a 100 million plus followers on Instagram she said she’s kind of freaked out and took few extended breaks from social media, more like depamine detox where you don’t wish to be on social media much to live your life in reality and not just virtually.
She took these several extended breaks form social media also because her large following also brought large number of hat comments and ciriritcziem to her. She also revealed in April 2020, that she has a bipolar disorder.
Bipolar disorder or also known as manic depression, is a kind of mood disorder happens due to long periods of depression and periods of abnormally-elevated mood that last can last from days to weeks each.
Selena was dating Nick Jonas in 2008 and also appeared in the song video: “Burnin’ UP” by Nick for his band. Then comes the most famous dating part of her life and of another teen superstar, Justin Beiber, she began dating Justin in 2010 and separated in 2012 November.
This relationship between these two stars was quite famous all around the world, you can read about Justin Bieber’s Biography on our another article if you wish.
Selena and Justin were an Off-again, On-again relationship for several years, meaning they dated, broke up, dated again and this cycle went for few years until 2018.
Selena started a very romantic relationship with Justin after recording the song “I Want You to Know’ with Zedd, a Russian-German Dj, in 2015
Selena has a very disturbing relationship history – my personal opinion. As you all may already know that she have had relation with many different superstars and broke up too soon with almost every one of them.
I do not want to judge her, but just stating a face that she had a very poor history as per dating, maybe because of her personal phycial and mental issues.
