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.”

# 3

She is so beautiful and cute! she has the potential to become the new princess of pop or a better actress!!!

# 4

She is a really good role model, she keeps her clothes on but still dresses modern and never pushes the envelope as far as good taste goes, I mean compare her to the other female singers she maintains her self respect and has a good mom to watch out for her. I wish her the

# 8

Terrible actress, horrible singer. Time for her to go home and take her 12-year-old boyfriend with her.

# 9

This girl has ZERO star quality! Stop trying to force-feed her down the public’s throat, it’s not going to happen!!!

I think she has great comedic timing on her show and am not a fan of her music but “who says” is great! nice positive message! I hope she continues to get better and improves her acting further and becomes a bonafied movie star…i have high hopes for her. Ignore the haters and keep doing what you do Ms. Gomez. the people who hate on you are mainly prepubescent delusional bieber obssessed girls…and some adults…but it’s all good! keep going!

Wow the blonde wig threw me off. Sounds like a great interview with one of the biggest rising stars

people love selena gomez because she is nice and sweet?…okay and people love her because she is beautiful? okay but that will only get you so far she lacks acting and singing talents i know selena fans gonna go crazy but truth hurts

why not selena with justin b in cover

wow photoshoped to the core she is natrual beauty she doesnt need to be photoshopped so much.. and whats up with the blonde wig??

It’s pedophilia week on this blog.

I’m still waiting for sexy pics of Suri, Shiloh, or maybe they are too old for you people.

What has she done to deserve to be on the cover of Billboard?!

Damn–she’s got legs! I suspect a lot of dads and big brothers are taking notice of her, now.

Lmao at the haters all up on this.
She looks gorgeous, and even though she’s not the best at singing, I think she’s a pretty great actress (especially when compared to her contemporaries).

She has great comedic timing, she’s got the crying and drama down, and hopefully we’ll see more to her acting as her career goes on.

And not only that, but she’s extremely mature for her age (some of you should take notes), she’s smart, and she’s grateful for what she has.

I literally see no reason to hate on her unless you think she’ “fake” and LOL at that reason. Or if she’s dated some of your Hollywood crushes, which, sorry to tell you, you’ll probably never end up marrying.

End of.


lol no. She can act, sorry if you’re too much of a belieber to think so.
Have you even seen her in any of her shows? Or movies?

Acting isn’t exactly the easiest thing ever. She memorizes her lines, and she shows EMOTION. It really isn’t easy at all.
Seriously she’s nothing like her character Alex. That says enough about her acting.

@Emelia:ewwww BEIBER seriously he is worse than selena…. selena is a beautiful girl she can do better i never said she isnt nice and stuff but her acting and singing doesnt have to appeal to everyone i have a right to my opinion maybe bieber and selena appeal to teens like yourself but to more of an adult audience she doesnt have much appeal talent wise she would make a good model

I agree with @okay …Her acting or singing does not have to appeal to everyone i am a fan of selena but that doesnt mean i expect everyone else to love her and its true everyone is entitled to their opinion

bieber suks @ 06/11/2011 at 12:36 am

@Emelia: oh god not everyone who doesnt like selenas terrible acting has to be a fan of bieber i mean be is just a lesbian everytime he opens his mouth i cringe she is pretty girl she just suks at her job

I’m just very upset!!!selena you so want to try to show that you ‘re growing up so you think that to show oneself half-naked means that we grow up!you do as miley cyrus!and don’t think that in order to make a success of music we have to be like others,rihanna etc…it’s a bad influence!I loved and everybody loved the fact that you were both glamor and class so stay like this and don’t change,I think you’re someone well brought up and your mum has to be proud of you so stop trying to be another person!I’m sorry I don’t speak very well english!!!

She looks gorgeous, and even though she’s not the best at singing, I think she’s a pretty great actress (especially when compared to her contemporaries).
