Selena Gomez is a Today Show Wizard

Selena Gomez casts a spell on the small screen as she chats up the new season of her hit Disney show, Wizards of Waverly Place, on The Today Show in New York City on Monday morning.

When asked by interviewer Al Roker if there’s anything different about this upcoming season compared to last season, the 16-year-old actress/singer said, “This season, we wanted to come back and top ourselves from the first season. A lot of new crazy magic spells are happening. You also see a more real side because at the same time, we want to be relate-able. [My character] Alex goes through the struggle of first date jitters and fights with her best friend.”

    love you ,you rock!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Seth

    How tall is she? She looks utterly elegant in that black dress. For a 16 year old, that is quite an acheivement. but the white shirt thing is not appropriate. too casual.

  • Kalilah

    She’s adorable, but I don’t think her show is that good.

  • jo

    Eh, she’s grown on me but she’s still just OK. She’s pretty though, for sure.
    Singing is definitey NOT her thing, though. She should stick to acting.

  • AJ

    How can one person be so PRETTY?

  • kate

    Woah she does NOT look 16! She dresses way mature.

  • ..

    I have no problem for Selena and I’d prefer for her to be like she is than how Miley is. However, she kinda seems boring.

    Her clothes are nice but boring.
    In interviews she seems nice but boring.
    Her music is nice but boring.
    Her acting is nice but boring.

    I have no idea what kind of a person she is because she doesn’t show her personality at all.

    Like we all know Demi’s this lively, bubbly, smiley girl and that’s her thing.

    And Miley’s this hypocritical, kinda slutty girl but at least she’s not boring.

  • 123

    Wow she looks awesome!!!

  • hot

    so who watches her show anyway? just because she dates a Jonas..please…

  • woowwww

    kate @ 09/29/2008 at 1:22 pm Woah she does NOT look 16! She dresses way mature.

  • michelle

    <3:)
    gotta love herrrr

  • yawn.

    man, this chick bores me to sleep:)
    what has she done to make her come on ellen or the view?

    lmfao seriously?
    jonas brothers and miley worked YEARS for that.
    like for oprah and ellen. and now demi and selena
    get to go on these top shows like it’s christmas.

    i mean, demi is alright. good singer. mediocer acting.
    but selena… come on she’s too average. we need TALENT!

  • girl

    Oh please. She’s very pretty. Give her a few years and she’ll be a complete knockout. It’s nice to see a celebrity teen dressing appropriately. It’s the Today Show, people don’t necessarily go on there dressing in jeans and t-shirt. She looks good and business like. VERY PRETTY.

  • T

    she is really pretty, and you can tell that she isnt an annoying bimbo, like someone else we all know…

    she seams like a genuinely nice, and really smart.

    i think she has a great career ahead of her.

    GO SELENA

  • .

    omg shes such a hypocrite “yea singing is one of my passions” WHATTTT a couple of months ago she said she wants to concentrate more on acting i mean i love sel but goshhhhhhhhhhh shes boriiingggg at least demi n miley r funny in interviews

  • .

    #28 demi is an amazing singer try to hit the notes she does!!!!!!!

  • very not english man

    oh what a long legs, really gorgeus, very yummy! that’s why this older dude wanna be her fan, he wants lick her legs!

  • Kristine

    Love you Sel<333
    SO freakin cute & gorgeous:)

    Can’t wait for season 2…
    lol ya- i watched it and it was awesome!!!!

    Hot guys. Funny Lines. Tricky Spells. = Better than Hm bitchz :P

    uh number 28/29- your both wrong.
    for starters- selena has worked her whole life. SHE HAS TALENT OK? Besides barney, she’s been in other movies. and it’s true for the jonas brothers, but they didn’t do much, back then, as to now. and as for miley.. she’s a different story , cuz like SHE’S NEVER ACTED OR DANCED IN HER LIFE, BESIDES GUEST STARS AND DOING CHEERLEADING!!! SEL HAS DONE 1 SHOW, 1 MOVIE, + MANY OTHERS!!! So has demi. so stfu & get lost!!!

    and 29 & every other person who stated sel is ugly- your jus jealous cuz she got ppl to make herself beautiful and you don’t. stop hating on her, cuz she dresses differently or has a completely different style than you. kk? makeup 2 inches thick? wtf? her face is not packed wit makeup like a prostitute 0.0

    & number 22- would you really want miley on here?
    plz i think not!!!! FOR THE LAST FUCKIN TIME SEL DIDN’T STEAL NICK..!!!! WE HAVE NO PROVE THERE TOGETHER OK? AND FOR ONCE, IM GLAD THE JBROS AREN’T TELLING US NE THING..CUZ RITE NOW, YOU GUYS ARE BEING SUCH ASSES FOR HATING ON SUMONE WHO HASN’T DONE NE THING !!!

    and lastly number 31- have you ever thought sel would want sumthing more to her career besides acting?
    PLus think of it this way- she may have no experience, but jus cuz she doesn’t , doesn’t give you the rite to critize her for not trying to do so.
    I have to admit..everyone can work there way on singing, without having to have 5-6 years of talent. You can soo tell, her whole life was based on acting and not singing and dancing. And since she’s started to do these things now..she’s really good that, most ppl will think she’s done it b4 :)

    Go SEL:) (L)
    SCREW THE HATERS
    AND THE FREAKIN FREAK MILEY SLAVER :P

  • katie

    what! before today i’v never heard of wizards of waverly place…well that’s a lie cuz everytime i turn on the tv her big head is on…this show is the worst disney has come up with. what is it a harry potter remake? the show is horrible as well as her…talentless

  • Linds

    she is cool. but we all act like we know her when we really dont!

  • JJ

    shes pretty cool

  • lolaolz

    I prefer her to all the other disney stars (well, her and Demi), but everyone’s right. Her personality looks boring.

    I also hate that she’s a disney kid. She could do so much better, her show sucks.

  • move on

    her tv show’s BORING!
    her music’s BORING!
    her clothes are BORING!

    BASICALLY SELENA GOMEZ IS A BORING FREAK!

  • LOL

  • DAWN

    seriously, how annoying can selena get? she really gets on my nerves.

  • chanelle

    selena SUCKS!

  • ILUVSELENA

    Selena looks so pretty and shes very talented stop Hating

    Team Demi and Selena

    :)

  • mz Sass

    Her make-up is too heavy. When Demi and Miley wear too much make-up they get ragged on.

    I will say that for once she’s “on trend” with the black clothing and the flesh colored patent leather shoes.

  • james

    :D

    I <3 SELENA !!!

    DONT DENY NELENA

  • james

    i loVE YOU
