Selena Gomez Covers 'Billboard'

Selena Gomez Covers 'Billboard'

Selena Gomez strikes a pose with a sailors wheel on the cover of next week’s Billboard.

Here’s what the 18-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag:

On being both a singer and an actress: “It’s obviously an important phase in my career, and personally. The good news is I have been juggling acting and signing for two-and-a-half to three years. But I have to start over in some areas. It’s interesting to start taking risks, to grow up through my music.”

On working professionally with her mom, Mandy Teefey: “My mom has been my manager since day one. She helps me make choices correctly. She protects me.”

On whose career she would want to emulate: “[Shia LaBeouf]. He did it really well. He’s talented and doing wonderful things. Everybody has their own vision of how they want things to play out … Eventually I hope to make a record in Spanish. I don’t do anything that’s not organic.”

On technology: “I have a love-hate relationship with the Internet. I don’t like it in general – it’s vicious. But it’s also incredibly that I can connect with fans, because I love to hear their feedback and let them know about my life.”
