Selena Gomez is Making the Band

Selena Gomez is Making the Band

Selena Gomez doesn’t want a solo career, but instead wants to start her own band that will have a pop/rock feel to it.

“I’m going to be in a band — no Selena Gomez stuff,” the 16-year-old Wizards of Waverly Place star told MTV News last week. “I’m not going to be a solo artist. I think that I don’t want my name attached to it.”

Selena added, “I basically want to make music that is fun and that parents and kids can jump around to and have a good time to. I will be singing, and I’m learning drums and playing electric guitar.”

Ms. Gomez even wants to take a backseat at times during live gigs. “I would like to try it and kind of switch it up,” she said. “When I do the tour and stuff, I would like to do maybe a section on the piano or on guitar or on drums.”

Check out the video below for Selena‘s interview!

    I love her! She’s one of the few latina stars on the disney channel! Its really nice to know she knows about the environmental issues and somewhat cares.

    By the way, did anyone realize that the host of MTV news is Kim from ANTM? So much for modeling!

  • chilly_powder

    I’m impressed! she sounds very mature. Not like other teens her age! I’m glad to hear one of them speak and not sound like a barbie doll broke record! I think i like her.

  • Katie

    Selena’s mom had her when she was 16. Does anyone know if a dad is in the picture? Amazing how successful this girl has become with a very young, single mom. Reminds me of Jamie Lynn Spears’ story.

  • Regina

    Jared, do you realise that you’re failing miserably by trying to make her the next best thing. It’s not happening. She’s a mediocre talent. Just like the rest of the Disney crowd.

  • Bu

    piano, guitar, drums…
    Just like Nick Jonas huh?

  • smilessss

    haters out there are only jealous of her.
    so stop saying all those cruel things.
    she’s fine she’s not like miley cyrus with her icky voice.
    she seems laid back unlike miley.

  • LINNNAA

    let her be!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • UGH

    B*itch sit down. You have no talent and this an idiotic idea.

  • iluvmiley

    does anyone else think maybe she’s only doing this because so many people think she’s copying miley? she doesn’t want a solo career becasue that would be like miley…just saying

  • jéssica

  • tia

    the fact that she doesnt wanna be a solo singer says alot about the kind of down to earth person she is

  • renee
