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!

    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.

    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.

    You’re an idiot. You must mean MiHoley. This girl has done nothing scandalous. So obvious you’re just being a hater for the sake of it. At least people who dislike the screwed up ones like MiHoley actually have reasons.

    Jesus Christ! leave the girl alone!
    its actually not a bad idea, it just shows how humble she is!
    shes not trying to be all huge and annoying like miley cyrus!

    to zashley, first of all, GET OVER IT! Zac and Vanessa r together and if u were a real fan of either one of them, you would except that!
    and second, leave selena alone, if you dont like her, dont comment on her! get a life instead of talking **** and being a hater because shes supposedly with nick jonas! GET OVER IT!!!

    K, im done!

    Selena good at acting.

    nikki Says:

    um, i have heard her sing and it is not good. I like that she wants to be in a band, but seriously what is with disney stars not just sticking to one thing. dont they know people will take them more seriosuly if they are either actress or singer and not both?

    I hate how all of these Disney stars think that they can “rock”, I mean, let’s be honest, compare Miley Cyrus, or the Jonas Brothers to real rock bands like Kings of Leon, Queens of the Stone Age, or the Black Keys. THOSE are rock bands, not bubblegum pop that “parents and kids” can listen to.

    ugghh Disney kids..

    Born Manhattanite Says:

    If she does make a band. it will probably be something Disney or something equally stupid. Oh hey why doesn’t she join the Jonas Brothers, that’s probably what she had in mind . Ewww I know i’m hater but seriously how can anyone like this girl ? And who actually watches her shoe above the age of 12 ? And not watching it with their kids or siblings.

    They digitally digitized her voice.

    Not every Disney star sings

    That is why she wants a band.

    So she can play the instruments instead of her singing.

    Selena is one of my old friends… and I still love her but she can’t sing very well.

    Still love you Lena. <333

    I’m sorry!

    how do you know that the bend won’t work if it hasn’t come out yet. stop being so shallow, and judge everything without a point of view; it might work, or it might not…you never know what the future might hold. you need a percepactive from the band before judging it.forexample, when miley cyrus started her carer as an american actress and singer, no one knew whether she’ll be in a diffrerent level than most teen celebrities. selena gomez is starting this band to pump up her carer, and if you were in her position, i’m sure you’ll most likely do the same for your future carer. you wouldn’t want your dream to stop at a dead end, you’ll want it to escalate from point to point.

    I don’t get how people have so much hatred for someone they don’t even know, and some people are so immature, talking so much crap about someone famous. Oh wow, you aren’t famous boo whoo cry me a river, if you don’t like her than get out. I don’t get why the hell do miley fans come here to talk crap about Selena, when she hasn’t done anything bad. Oh wow she ‘supposedly’ stoled Nick Jonas from her, she’s copying Miley, no she isn’t, okay? She wants a band well thats a first hardly none of the Disney Stars are in bands other than the Jonas Brothers, but that donesn’t mean she’s copying them too, theirs aolt of bands with someone playing guitar, piano ,drums, its not only Nick.
    Go to a Miley thread/post instead of talking **** about Selena.
