Selena Gomez‘s new single doesn’t sound nearly as Disney as I would have guessed. Honestly, I could see jamming to “Bang, Bang, Bang” while in a car on the way to beach. But even more interesting than the song itself, is the lyrics. “My new boy used to be a model, he looks way better than you, he looks way better than you/His love is deeper you know/He’s a real keeper you know/My new boy knows the way I want it/He’s got more swagger than you, he’s got much more than you do.” Sure sounds like the new guy she’s referring to is Justin Bieber. Which would make the old guy she’s singing to Nick Jonas? Keep reading »
Selena Gomez sure is stirring up some controversy this week. Yesterday, she smooched suspected beau Justin Bieber at the Billboard Music Awards, making tweenage girls everywhere swell with rage. And on Friday, she shot the video for “Love You Like a Love Song” in Malibu which features … pink horses. Selena’s rep says that no animals were harmed in the making of the video, but Pink was still not pleased. She tweeted, “If there are any animal activists around Malibu—at Leo Cabrillo State Beach—there are horses being painted for a stupid music video. Shame.” Personally, I am way more concerned by the fact that her love interest in the video has way too long hair and is wearing fringed pants. Check him out after the jump. Keep reading »
I was just reading this interview with Selena Gomez where they asked her what it’s like dating pop sensation Justin Bieber and dealing with his haters and juggling her work schedule with all of that, and are you ready for what she said? It’s a doozy.
“I am sure I have some sense of bipolar-ness. I wake up happy then I turn to sadness on a dime. It’s crazy but I do enjoy all of it right now.”
Some sort of bipolar-ness? Hmmm, is that a dig at her former BFF Demi Lovato or just one of the most insensitive comments I’ve ever heard a celebrity make in order to fill up interview space? Read more… Keep reading »
“I actually don’t [encourage the mustache]. It’s not gonna grow … I mean, it needs a little more time. You’ve gotta commit. You can’t just be like, ‘All right, let me just do a little one.’”
—Selena Gomez reveals on SiriusXM that she isn’t loving maybe-boyfriend Justin Bieber‘s new facial hair. On March 5th, he tweeted (his lack of punctuation, not ours), “Im not shaving for a month so you all can see my mustache.. im pumped.” Hopefully Selena’s lack of pumpitude will not be too much of an issue.

So apparently, tweens today really dig this Justin Bieber fellow. Every time the Bieb is even semi linked to someone of the female persuasion, she gets death threats. Selena Gomez is the latest target for all the collective JB fan hate, since she was recently caught on film kissing Justin after weeks of denying that they were a couple. (When the two were spotted at an IHOP together, she said, “It was pancakes! Who doesn’t like pancakes? We were both performing in the same place so we went and had pancakes together. That’s all it is.”) Some sample threats written to her: “Roses are red, violets are blue, @selenagomez if you break @justinbieber’s heart I’m gonna kill you.” And: “If you are the Girlfriend of Justin I will Kill you I HATE YOU :@ !!!” How poetic.

Ever since Selena Gomez turned 12 years old, there’s one accessory you never catch her without—her purity ring. But lately, the 16-year-old has been seen sans ring while out and about with young Justin Bieber. When they were seen holding hands outside an IHOP, no ring. When they were caught hugging and ran onto his tour bus in Miami, no ring. So did Selena lose the ring? Or does she keep forgetting to put it on in the morning? Or is this a sign that she’s ditched her chastity pledge and is on the road to Britney Spears-dom? [She Knows]
After the jump, a few other stars who’ve ditched their purity rings. Keep reading »
Selena Gomez told Ellen DeGeneres on her show that her pre-show warm-up routine is not a pleasant one—she drinks olive oil. Selena said, “It’s awful… You let it go down and it coats your throat. I gag every time.” Apparently, she read that it was Kelly Clarkson‘s trick in a magazine and “just copied her.” I guess if it’s working, then she should chug away! [People]
When I did musical theater in high school, we used to spray something called Singer’s Saving Grace down our throats which really pissed off our vocal teachers for some reason. But beyond the old tea and honey trick and embarrassing warm-up routines, some of the following singers have some pretty weird voice-saving habits. Keep reading »
“Ramona and Beezus” opens today, and even though I loved the Ramona books, I’m feeling apprehensive. Ramona came in second only to Nancy Drew
for me when I was a kid, and I tore through all seven books in the series in rapid succession. (An eighth book was released in 1999, but I’ve never checked that one out.) I loved Ramona for being a tomboy who tells it like it is, who isn’t afraid to get dirty, and who regularly exercises her out-there imagination. I loved that she butted heads with her too-sensible, too popularity-focused big sister, Beezus. And I guess that’s what has me nervous here. From the previews, it looks like these two get along way, way too well. Aren’t they supposed to be at odds until those special moments when (a) they realize the other is truly hurting and come together or (b) are trying to pull a fast one on their parents?
I guess the other issue here is that I loved the television version of “Ramona,” starring a very young Sarah Polley. Keep reading »
We (kinda) fell for the April Fool’s news item about Lady Gaga designing for Alexander McQueen. Curses! Now, for all kinds of celebrity fashion line news that’s actually true:
