After a 5 year wait, the American singer announced the release of her latest album last Friday: “My album is officially out in the universe.” Her third solo album, entitled Rare, is the most personal of her career.
There are 13 tracks on the album. We’ve already heard two chart-topping singles, Look at Her and Lose You to Lose Me, which took her to the top of the US billboard for the first time in her life. Selena Gomez delves even deeper into her emotional scars: Dance Again, Vulnerable and Cut You Off explore the highs and lows of a relationship. The former Disney star (she played the baddie in Hannah Montana when she was 15 before getting the lead role in Wizards of Waverly Place) has blossomed into a confident woman and pop star who epitomises her time: here are 5 reasons why.
She designs for Puma. Selena Gomez has been working with the sports brand for 2 years. She started out as an ambassador before getting involved in the creative process for her Strong Girl range of trainers and accessories. She also wore Nike Dunk sneakers in the film Spring Breakers which soon sold out after her arty big-screen performance that helped shatter her girl next door image.
She is producing one of the current most popular series. She’s a producer on 13 Reasons Why adapted from the novel of the same name by Jay Asher. It started out as a film with her in the starring role. But the film project was dropped and came to Netflix with Selena Gomez producing.
She’s done a track with a Frenchy. That makes her a discerning singer… You’re bound to have bust some moves to the smoking hot Taki Taki by our very own DJ Snake featuring Cardi B and Ozuna. There are two top guests appearances on her new album: 6LACK and Kid Cudi.
With 164 million followers, the American is one of the world’s most popular personalities on Instagram. But she couldn’t care less. She’s seriously considering leaving social media for good after falling victim to body shaming.
Her ex is Justin Bieber and she obviously has unfinished business with him. Not long ago she dropped a bombshell on Jimmy Fallon’s TV show: she will soon release her latest track dedicated to her ex telling her side to the story.
