Selena Gomez - Selena Gomez arrives at Kings Cross Station, on a train from Paris. She was greeted by a large number of fans, who gifted her roses and letters, with one male fan grabbing her for a hug! - London, United Kingdom - Thursday 10th March 2016
Taylor Swift is said to be reaching out to her troubled friend Selena Gomez, despite the pair's alleged rift.
Something pretty strange is going on with Selena Gomez at the moment. After entering a rehabilitation facility at the beginning of the year, the Spring Breakers actress got back together with her bad boy ex, Justin Bieber. She’s been spotted hanging out at Coachella with the Jenner sisters, before proceeding to stop following everyone on Instagram and firing her parents as her manager. Hanging out with the Jenner sisters is proof enough for us that something pretty weird is going down.

Her behaviour seems a little erratic and it’s hard to come up with a logical explanation for any of it. In the past Gomez has been quoted as saying, “I”m surrounded by people who are supposed to guide me, and some of them have and others haven’t. They pressure me: you gotta be sexy, you gotta be cute, you gotta be nice, you gotta be all these things…Until recently I had given into that pressure…I’ve learned from my mistakes.”

Selena Gomez has unfollowed all of her celebrity friends on Instagram, what's the deal?
So, what’s the deal with Selena Gomez’s recent Instagram purge? Almost as soon as she said goodbye to the Jenner sisters at Coachella festival, Gomez stopped following them both on Instagram. It wasn’t just Kylie and Kendall Jenner who Selena decided to remove from her account, she also stopped following on-again-off-again boyfriend Justin Bieber (we ain’t complaining there), alleged BFF Taylor Swift (that one was a bit of a shock, we thought the pair were really close), fellow Spring Breakers Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Benson, Reese Witherspoon, Zooey Deschanel and Lily Collins. Either some serious celebrity beef went down at Coachella and we just don’t know about it, or Selena is taking care of some personal business.

While she may have unfollowed a whole host of fellow celebs, she also took it upon herself to remove all trace of Kylie and Kendall from her Instagram account. The trio had recently been hanging out at Coachella music festival, and had all been uploading pics to the social media site to show us all what a great time they were all having being hippies for the weekend...before heading back to their Beverly Hills mansions. Kylie still has her pics of Selena up on her account, so it looks like there’s no bad feelings, at least on one side.
Taylor Swift has more celebrity BFFs than most of us have pairs of underwear. But who does she count among her celeb posse?
Taylor Swift is like the girl at high school who knows absolutely everybody, but you're not quite sure how. She seems to move just as easily from friendship group to friendship group just as quickly as it takes for her to say, “Hey girlfriend!” But who does Taylor Swift count among her many celebrity BFFs?
Taylor has more celebrity BFFs than she has American Music awards!
Taylor and Selena Gomez are always snapped together at various awards ceremonies. The pair originally met backstage at a Jonas Brothers’ concert and have became fast friends. “So much about our lives have changed over the last couple of years, but our friendship has stayed the same”, Taylor has said. Although she’s not the best option to give boyfriend advice, perhaps Taylor can offer Selena some wise words when it comes to her beau, Justin Bieber.

Salena Gomez has fired her parents as her managers, but did you know Usher and Beyonce did the same?
Selena Gomez has reportedly decided she no longer needs any more parental advisory in her career and fired her manager parents. Selena’s parents had been managing her career since the beginning, but it now seems the former Disney star has outgrown mum and dad's guidance. Firing your parents might seem like the ultimate act of rebellion, but for some stars it was just a career move that had to happen. Here’s five famous faces who, like Selena, eventually had to decide it was time to give mum and dad the pink slip.

Police were called to Selena Gomez's Calabasas, Calif., home last Friday (April 4th) after they were alerted a suspicious looking man had jumped over her fence.
Astonishingly, this man is the same person who was arrested on March 31st for entering Gomez's guest house bathroom.

Bieber shamed as his own country rejects him.
Justin Bieber has had to endure the shame of rejection after he was booed by crowds at last night's Juno Awards. The incident would have been difficult to endure wherever the event was held in the world but the fact that the Juno Awards are held in Bieber's home country of Canada carries a particularly sharp barb of repudiation for the 20 year-old pop star.
Justin Bieber Faced A Humilating Chorus Of Boos At Sunday's Juno Awards.
Bieber wasn't even at the Canadian equivalent of the Grammys to collect his trophy - the Juno Fan Choice Award - and was instead snapped partying in Montreal where he reportedly took three female clubbers back to his hotel room. Since bursting on to the scene as a sweet-faced young teenager, the singer has fallen victim to his own rebellious ways and has consequently lost some respect amongst his peers and fans.

An 18 year old man sneaked backstage and left a note in Miley Cyrus' dressing room, which other stars have had to deal with obsessive fans?
Miley Cyrus has a fairly polite (but gramatically challenged) stalker. Instead of hiding in her dressing room wearing a ghostface mask and brandishing duct tape, he simply entered her dressing room and left a note. The note wasn’t even that peculiar, in the grand scheme of celebrity stalkers.
Tyler snuck backstage at Miley's Bangerz tour
Tucker Salvesen wrote to Miley: “I snuck back here I need to meet you. You have helped me so much your music has given me all the answers I was looking for when my heart got broke...we went through the same thing @ the same time...Miley I love you!!! Please let me meet you”. OK, not totally normal behaviour, but at least he said ‘please’. He’s also not been entirely stealthy about his impending plan to invade the Wrecking Ball singer’s dressing room, tweeting to her keyboardist “I’m probably gonna sneak backstage to see miley tomorrow...save me a trip to jail 1000 miles from home and help me out???”.

The couple got together in Texas before Gomez's show.
This is the song that never ends… scratch that, it’s the relationship that never ceases to produce gossip fodder. Not only are Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber apparently back together, they’re taking dance lessons. According to TMZ, the once-again couple hit upAction Dance Studio in McAllen, TX and spent a few hours sweating it up in a private rehearsal with one of the studio’s choreographers.
Both Bieber and Gomez have had a rough start of the year, but seem to be happily back together now.
Gomez was there to perform at the 2014 BorderFest concert at the Hidalgo State Farm Arena. Judging by Bieber’s twitter stream, he was also in attendance – because why rekindle a romance, if you’re not going to throw yourself into it full force?

What's the deal with Aaron Carter's cryptic tweets about ex-girlfriend Hilary Duff?
Romeo and Juliet, Lancelot and Guinevere, Aaron Carter and Hilary Duff. Hang on, what was that last one? We never realised that Aaron and Hilary were star cross’d lovers, who despite their many years apart still yearned for one another. Well, Hilary not so much. But it turns out that Aaron has long been harbouring feelings for Hilary and now that she’s split from husband Mike Comrie he ain’t afraid for the whole world to know!
Hilary still looks great despite recently splitting from her husband
Aaron took to his Twitter account to announce “I’ll spend the rest of my life trying to better myself to get back to her. I don’t care what ANY of you think.” Heyyyy, calm down, Aaron. We’re on your side. Although to be fair, you did allegedly cheat on Hilary and date Lindsay Lohan at the same time as her. But you know, it’s cool that you’re trying to better yourself to be a worthier man should you win her back this time round. Hilary’s always seemed like a nice girl with her head screwed on, so she deserves somebody who will treat her right.

Selena Gomez finally speaks out on her recent rehab stint and thanks her fans for their "unconditional love and cyber hugs."
The 'Come & Get It' singer showed her love in an Instagram photo which was uploaded on Monday night (Feb 10th).
"I've done everything I could to the best of my ability," Gomez wrote in the pic's caption. "Thank you for the unconditional love and cyber hugs. You inspire me."
Selena Gomez's representative has confirmed the 21-year-old did attend a rehabilitation centre but that it was not related to drugs or alcohol.
Selena Gomez was secretly admitted to rehab in January, according to reports in a number of media outlets. The 21-year-old was admitted to a rehab facility in Arizona in order to seek treatment, if reports are to be believed. However, her representative has admitted she did enter the facility but not for substance abuse issues.

The former Disney star was admitted into Dawn at the Meadows rehabilitation facility in Arizona on January 5th of this year. Gomez's representative, speaking to E!, said "Selena voluntarily spent time at Meadows but not for substance abuse." She may have simply wished to enter the facility in order to take a break from her hectic schedule. This would certainly explain why she cancelled her concerts in Australia in December 2013. In an official statement the singer stated she had prioritised work and that she need some personal time, it read: "It has become clear to me and those close to me that after many years putting my work first, I need to spend some time on myself in order to be the best person I can be."

Salena Gomez's admission that she spent two weeks in rehab is not as shocking as it should be, the actress is just one in a long list of teen stars who have sought out treatment for different problems.
Selena Gomez has admitted that she spent two weeks in a rehab centre earlier this year. Whilst a rep for the singer said it was ‘'not for substance abuse’, rumours are circulating about the reason behind her 2 week stay. Whatever the reason for Selena’s trip she has joined the ever increasing list of former Disney stars who have headed to rehab, a list which includes her BFF Demi Lovato and many more former child stars who have struggled to grow up under the spotlight.
Salena Gomez has admitted entering rehab earlier this year
It was a long time ago, but its worth remembering that the first child star to have a very public battle with drink and drugs was 'ET’s' Drew Barrymore. Drew may have not have been part of the Disney set, but the story of her troubled teen years has become legendary in Hollywood. Eventually she overcame her problems and went on to have a very successful career as an adult, appearing as a leading lady in films such as ‘Never Been Kissed’ and ‘Ever After’ and running her own production company Flower Films. Her experiencesprove that even in Hollywood adolescent problems don’t have to define your whole career.

A 19 year-old male was arrested on Saturday (Jan 25th) after allegedly trespassing on the property of Selena Gomez...he wanted to see the 21 year-old in person.
Selena Gomez's weekend, like her ex Justin Bieber, involved the police making an arrest.
But unlike the 19 year-old pop megastar, Gomez wasn't the one sporting a pair of handcuffs, the LAPD arrested a man for allegedly trespassing on the 'Come & Get It' singer's property.

The star is apparently unmoved by her ex's latest run-in with the law, her BFF told Ryan Seacrest earlier this week
It had been reported in recent weeks that Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber looked as though they were on the path to reconciliation, having been spotted sharing a romantic segway ride together earlier this month. If Selena's pal Demi Lovato is to believed though, her fellow former Disney star isn't as cosy with her ex as the media might think, and she isn't feeling too hung up about Bieber's latest actions either.
Lovato appeared on Ryan Seacrest's 'On Air With Ryan Seacrest' radio show earlier this week, where she spoke briefly about her pal Gomez and where she stands on the whole Bieber arrest thing. Apparently she's "doing really well" and although Lovato wanted to keep what her pal had said between them, she gave off the impression that her friend isn't too bothered about what her increasingly despised former flame gets up to in his spare time.
A 19-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of trespassing on Selena Gomez's L.A. property on Saturday (25th January).

Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez, in recent interviews, have discussed their "close" friendship and highly praised each other for their strength.
Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez, following their appearance together in Los Angeles on Thursday (23rd January), have discussed their friendship with various media outlets. They both agree that, despite their fall out in 2010, they are closer than ever.
Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez are "really, really close."
The pair dined together in West Hollywood on Thursday in Craig's, a popular restaurant with the Hollywood A-list. Gomez appeared unconcerned about her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber's arrest. However, Lovato admitted the issue did come up during their dinner. She said, during an interview with Ryan Seacrest on Friday night (24th January), that Gomez is "doing real well" after Bieber's arrest. However, Lovato was unwilling to divulge any further details, simply saying "Any advice I had for her, we talked last night and it's between us." She added, "We're really, really close," and "I love her so much."

Selena Gomez admits that she will rather star in an independent film than a mainstream feature: "There's a sense of freedom that I'm given in the indie world where I can just go and play."
Selena Gomez made a name for herself starring in several hit Disney Channel shows, and landed the lead role in 'Wizards of Waverly Place'.
Before long her she transformed from an actress into a singer and became one of the music industry's most notable rising stars, with releasing her No.1 album 'Stars Dance' in July 2013.
But when the 21 year-old moved back into movies, she stayed away from the mainstream, and appears in more independent films, which is no accident.
Razzie 'favourite' Adam Sandler is up for yet another Worst Actor gong and newbies Selena Gomez and Lady Gaga earn their first nods
It's awards season, which means it is the time when the stars of Hollywood gather together to congratulate themselves on another successful year of moviemaking. It is also the period when some of Hollywood's more questionable tastes are exposed and then routinely mocked, thanks to the annual Golden Raspberry Awards.
All of the Grown Ups 2 cast are up for an award, but it is Sandler who earns the most recognition
An established 'favourite' with the Razzies committee, Adam Sandler is up for his 19th, 20th and 21st Razzie nomination and might make it three Worst Actor wins in a row, with his role in Grown Ups 2 up against Johnny Depp in The Lone Ranger, Ashton Kutcher in Jobs, Jaden Smith in After Earth and Sylvester Stallone for pretty much all of his movies from 2013; Bullet to the Head, Escape Plan, and Grudge Match.
The couple that Segways together... stays together?
Are Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez together again? …Is a question most of us could do without hearing ever again. Unfortunately for the world, between releasing an album that barely registered on the charts and having his second biopic Believe flop at the box office, the Biebs has found some time to post an Instagram photo of himself with his former ladylove, adding fuel to the dating rumors that were supposed to be long extinguished. But this has nothing to do with raising some publicity, of course. Nothing at all.
It's hard to keep track of these two's relationship anymore.
"Love the way you look at me," he captioned the pic, in which Gomez has her arms wrapped around him and is giving him what People defines as a “wistful” look, while Bieber himself looks into the camera. The photo feels a lot like déjà vu, especially after the pair were seen getting familiar again two days ago. Justin and Selena were reportedly caught riding around Bieber’s Calabasas neighborhood on Segways, quickly fueling speculation that the duo were back together.

Selena Gomez has cancelled 13 'Stars Dance' tour dates for Asia & Australia scheduled for early next year.
It was first reported that the 21 year-old wanted to spend time with her family as well as resting after working so hard.
But over the weekend it was widely reported that Gomez was forced to cancel those shows due to health issues, as she suffers from the Autoimmune Disease Lupus.
Selena Gomez is allegedly suffering from Lupus disease and had to cancel several tour dates for Asia and Australia "to address the disease and look after herself better if she wants to live a full and healthy life."

According to Popdust, sources close to Gomez told the website that she was diagnosed with the disease a couple of years ago and has suffered multiple "flares" recently that cause, facial swelling, extreme fatigue, headaches and joint pain.
Selena is happy and healthy, but in need of a break.
Selena Gomez is tired, but otherwise fine after cancelling the Australian leg of her world tour. At least that’s the line that the 21-year-old’s PR team is sticking to. On Thursday, the Come and Get It singer made the surprise announcement, but she made sure to apologize to her Australian fans.

"My fans are so important to me and I would never want to disappoint them," the singer said in a statement, released by PEOPLE.

The Nickelodeon star appeared to be having a go at Gomez for lip-syncing, but insists she meant no hard feelings
During the KIIS FM Jingle Ball concert in Los Angeles last week (6 Dec.), both Ariana Grande and Selena Gomez had a spot of technical difficulties when their mics went off part-way through their performance. For Grande, it was a moment to laugh about, but when it happened to Gomez, it was a much more embarrassing affair and even prompted the singer to swear and then storm off stage. Watch Ariana Grande and Jai Brooks make-out session at JFK airport.
Grande insists she meant nothing with her remark, whilst Gomez is staying quiet about the whole thing
Gomez, who performed before Grande, was busted for lip syncing after her mic went off and the music kept on playing behind her. Aggrieved, she swore and tried to communicate with the audience a little whilst the tech difficulties were sorted out. Once they were, Gomez performed one more song, 'Come & Get It,' before storming off stage despite having two more songs on her setlist. When the same thing happened to Grande, it was clear that she was singing and in a playful and joking manner she told the crowd, "At least you know I'm not singing to a track."
Selena Gomez openly says "what the f--k" live on stage at this year's KIIS FM's 2013 Jingle Ball concert, before leaving despite not finishing her set.
Selena Gomez was not in the Christmas spirit towards the end of her performance at KIIS FM's 2013 Jingle Ball this past Friday (Dec 6th).
The 21 year-old, who just finished one of her hit singles at the concert in LA's Staples Center, openly dropped the f-bomb in frustration due to technical difficulties.
Gomez was so annoyed with the sound issues she left the stage before her set was finished.
The singer is looking for love on his latest single
Bad news Justin Bieber fans, the long-running #MusicMondays is coming to an end, but on the bright side he might have released one of the best of the series so far. 'Change Me' is a delicate little number, one that features Justin at his most open, as he coos over an unnamed lover over the quiet, piano-led track.
Justin's #MusicMondays are coming to an end
In a whispery tone, Bieber asks his would-be lover whether she could be the one to "change him," switching between his regular singing voice and his falsetto style as he asks tenderly, “Maybe you could change me/maybe you could change me for good/Maybe you could be the light that opens up my eyes.”

The teen singing sensation apparently slapped one of the stripper's butt too
In case you were still wondering, the old, family friendly Justin Bieber is dead and gone. The new, party-loving, stripper spanking Justin is now here to stay, and he's taking his wild antics across state borders and bringing the party with him wherever he goes. His latest stop; a Texas strip club.
The Biebs knows how to party
In his latest bid to cast his tween days behind him for good, Justin reportedly stopped by VLive strip club - as initially reported by TMZ - and partied with his shirt off and his pants down (not all the way down, just in the style that all the cools kids have it nowadays). Justin clearly wasn't at the club to sit quietly in the corner, as he reportedly got down and dirty with at least one of the strippers, who later tweeted her excitement after meeting the hands-on singer.

Taylor Swift unleashed an F-bomb at the MTV VMAs, but who was in aimed at?
This always seems to happen. And we love it. The MTV Video Music Awards is perfect for high profile celebrities getting caught on camera saying or doing things this shouldn't. This time, it was Taylor Swift's turn.
Essentially, it's the biggest gathering of music stars on the planet and there's no hiding from the camera.

Styles sat in the audience whilst Swift thanked the "person who inspired" her to write 'I Knew You Were Trouble.'
It's awkward enough having to run into an ex just once, let alone be in the same profession as them and see your relationship digested daily by the gossip press. Country pop singer Taylor Swift and One Direction's Harry Styles had to cross paths yet again at last night's MTV VMA awards ceremony in Brooklyn as the coveted 'moon men' awards were handed out for the year's best videos.
Taylor Stole The Evening's Style Awards In Hervé Leger.
There was a palpable tension in the room as both Swift and One Direction took home one award each. Taylor lifted the prize for 'Best Female Video' with 'I Knew You Were Trouble' and the One Direction boys were awarded 'Best Song of the Summer' for 'Best Song Ever.' Though there may have been no face-to-face interaction between Swift and Styles, who dated for several months last year, Swift's hackles were definitely raised as the cheeky British pop band were greeted with frenzied screams.
Perhaps the singer was still feeling hung-up following her split from 1D heartthrob Harry Styles when she was caught out by the cameraman
Taylor Swift may just have had her very own Kanye West moment at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday (25 August) night, as the singer was seemingly spotted dissing One Direction during their introductory speech for the Best Pop Video gong. The boyband were reading out the nominees and about to welcome on to the stage the winner of the award; Selena Gomez (for the track 'Come and Get It'), when the camera cut to the 'I Knew You Were Trouble' singer, who appeared to be mouthing "shut the f*ck up" towards them. We wonder if Harry Styles had anything to do with this.
Swift appeared to be swearing at the boys during their introduction speech
Other winners on the night included Bruno Mars, Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez and of course, One Direction
Sunday (25 August) night saw the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York taken over by the biggest names in pop for one night only, as the 29th annual MTV Video Music Awards took the recently-completed venue by storm in an awards show that, like most VMAs, will be long remembered. In all there were eleven different winners in the sixteen different categories, whilst the ceremony itself was an onslaught of musical surprises and memorable performances, as the VMAs continued to live up to it's billing as the 'Oscars for youth.'
Justin was the biggest winner on the night
The biggest winner of the night was pop's returning prince Justin Timberlake, who not only won the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award for his services to the music industry, but also took home another three awards for two of his The 20/20 Experience music videos. His comeback single 'Suit & Tie' won Best Direction, whilst the follow-up single 'Mirrors earned the former N*Sync singer the Best Editing and the coveted Video of the Year Award. And speaking of N*Sync, during Timberlake's medley of hits prior to the Video Vanguard handing over, we were finally treated to the long-overdue reunion of N*Sync, who performed their memorable hits 'Girlfriend' and 'Bye Bye Bye.' We would have been more surprised, if it wasn't such a poorly kept secret.
After months of hard work, Selena was ready to show 'Stars Dance' to the world.
Singer Selena Gomez showed the world just how far away she'd travelled from being a Disney Channel princess by performing the inaugural concert of her 'Stars Dance' tour in Vancouver, Canada. However, the 21 year-old had revealed how nervous she was to be taking to the stage in front of thousands of fans and remember her lyrics as well as those complicated dance moves.
Selena Entertained Her Canadian Fans.
Speaking to MTV in the run up to the show, Gomez said "once the first two songs are out of my system, I feel a little bit better, and then I'm able to let loose." That's exactly what Selena did, coming out on stage to tonnes of screaming fans to perform a track from each of her albums, Bang Bang Bang and Round & Round. During the show, she played plenty of her own songs, such as the fan-favourite 'Love You Like A Love Song,' but also covered tracks from Rihanna, Iggy Azalea and Lorde.

Selena Gomez turned 21 earlier this week (22 July) and as she adjusts to life as an adult (technically) now, the one-time Disney princess was on hand to talk to Good Morning America on Friday (26 July) about life now that she has reached the momentous age of 21. Of course, no interview with Selena would be complete without a mention of her former boyfriend, Justin Bieber, who will apparently always hold a special place in her heart.

Justin Bieber posted an Instagram picture showing him cuddled up with his ex Selena Gomez. Although neither singer nor their representatives have commented, a source close to the former couple has said they are not together but are trying to be friends.
Justin Bieber posted an instagram picture with his ex-Selena Gomez. The former couple dated for nearly two years but split up in November last year. Rumours have been circulating which suggest they may be back together, although Bieber has been linked to a Las Vegas waitress and Gomez to Ed Sheeran.

The picture was posted on July 5th, although it doesn't have any other caption except for 'Heartbreak' (Bieber's latest single) E! believe it was taken at a 4th July party the former couple both attended. Bieber later posted "great night" via Twitter. So far, the Instagram picture has attracted 224000 comments and over a million hearts.
A lawsuit has been filed against Justin Bieber. The paparazzo plaintiff claims Bieber assaulted him in May 2012. However there is good news: Bieber's former pet Mally, the capuchin monkey, has been happily rehomed in a German zoo.
Justin Bieber is being sued by a paparazzo over an alleged assault which occurred in May 2012.
The lawsuit was filed yesterday (Wednesday 16th June) by Jose Osmin Hernandez Duran, according to E!. The photographer claims Bieber kicked and punched him. Hernandez Duran was one of many photographers attempting to take the pop star's photograph as he left a L.A. shopping mall with then girlfriend Selena Gomez.
A variety of statements have been made both by Hernandez Duran and Bieber's representatives. L.A. authorities apparently investigated the incident but chose not to press charges.
Singer Demi Lovato has been forced to skip X Factor USA auditions after the passing of her father, Patrick Lovato, on 23rd June.
Hit by the news of her father's death, Demi decision to skip X Factor auditions this weekend was met by words of support from her co-judge Simon Cowell, who tweeted "My thoughts are with you Demi.X"
Demi took to Twitter to thank fans for their support in the wake of her father's passing: "I feel so humbled to have had so much support from my fans, friends, family and complete strangers. God bless you all, thank you so much love."
Although the 20 year-old star is taking some time out to mourn and be with her family, she was estranged from her late father, having not spoken to him for five years due to a difficult relationship. In 2009, she revealed that they hadn't been speaking for two years due to him letting her down. She told Hollywood Life: "You try to have faith in somebody, even when you're the last person that believes in him. But when somebody lets you down after you've been the only one there for them, and so many times, you don't know what else to do."

Selena and her family have been receiving congratulations via social media.
It’s been all good news for Selena Gomez recently, as the Spring Breakers star, who also recently released the highly successful Come and Get It single, has become a big sister. On Thursday, Selena’s mother, Mandy Cornett gave birth to a baby girl with husband Brian Teefey. Gomez had announced the pregnancy to her Twitter followers a month prior, saying: "Momma and Brian are finally letting me share the news...My mommy's carrying my baby brother or sister :) I'm the happiest girl in the world!"
Now, 20-year-old Selena is presumably too wrapped up in doting on her baby sister to take care of her social media duties. However, New York Daily News reports that pal and X Factor judge Demi Lovato took to Twitter immediately after hearing the news to congratulate her friend. "@selenagomez IS A BIG SISTER!!!!!! Everyone congratulate her and her family!!!!!! #CONGRATSSELENA!!!!" she tweeted Thursday, adding "#CONGRATSSELENAMANDYANDBRIAN !!!!!!"
This is the star’s first sibling. Selena’s parents separated back when the future Disney girl was just five years old, but the family has obviously made it work. Now, Gomez will have to balance family responsibilities with her career, which is on a definite rise this year. She has steadily been trying to distance herself from her Disney past. After releasing Spring Breakers, in which she plays one of four girls on a vacation that gets out of control, Selena dropped the first single off her new album and an accompanying video, showing off her sexy side. Now the actress is looking forward to future career prospects and, if recent news about her are correct, she is even prepared to do nudity for a worthwhile role.

Her new album, Stars Dance, will be release July 23
Selena Gomez will release her new album next month, with the newly single (at least we think she is, we can't really keep up with the Gomez-Bieber relationship trail) former Disney star, unveiling a brand new song through her Vevo account on Monday night (June 3). She then posted the album cover and track-list on her Twitter, as well as the release date for the album: July 23.
The album will be titled Stars Dance, with the cover featuring a facial shot of Gomez surrounded by her name and album title in pink writing. Her song, 'Slow Down' is your everyday modern pop-song, with a heavy dance emphasis and some trace amounts of guitar chords in the build-up to the electronic onslaught. The track is also available immediately and for free to anyone who pre-orders her album on iTunes.
The singer went on to post the full track listing (which you can see below) in individual Tweets, as she built up towards a live web-chat with fans who quizzed her on her new album and a few other things on YouTube. It was a busy night on Twitter for the singer, and an even busier one on YouTube, but it'll all be worth it if the album proves to be as successful as her past releases.
Taylor Swift's reaction to Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber's reunion was the highlight of the Billboard Music Awards 2013.
Taylor Swift's disgusted reaction to Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber kissing backstage at the Billboard Music Awards has gone viral. The singer unleashed her true feelings about her friend's hook-up with the 19-year-old pop star with a ridiculous facial expression that was caught on camera - for us all to enjoy.
Swift, who won the night's biggest honor for artist of the year, was walking backstage with Gomez when they bumped into Bieber. A couple of bodyguards blocked the exchange but when Gomez gave her ex-boyfriend a hug and a peck on the cheek, Swift stuck her tongue out in mock horror before becoming visibly impatient. Selena was pulled away while Bieber is seeking asking a member of his entourage to block one of the cameras from recording him before stepping out of frame.
Gomez, 20, and Bieber, 19, have been on-off for several years though were thought to have ended their relationship on New Year's Eve. She's been spending more and more time with Swift, 23, who has dated.well, pretty much everyone. Harry Styles was the latest heartthrob to get the boot.
Taylor Swift, Madonna, Jennifer Lopez and Nicki Minaj among star arrivals at the 2013 Billboard Awards at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
The 2013 Billboard Music Awards looked to be one of the most celeb-filled events of the year with some of the music industry's biggest stars making their glamorous arrivals.
'22' singer Taylor Swift clutched eight accolades to her chest as she posed on the red carpet having won Top Billboard 200 Album and Top Country Album for 'Red', Top Country Song with 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together', Top Artist, Top Female Artist, Top Billboard 200 Artist, Top Digital Songs Artist and Top Country Artist. Carly Rae Jepsen was another young female star to land a prize winning Top Digital Song and Top Pop Song for her massive 2012 hit 'Call Me Maybe'. Queen of Pop Madonna scooped up three well deserved awards including Top Dance Album for 'MDNA', Top Dance Artist and Top Touring Artist after her controversial 'MDNA' tour which landed her amidst a handful of lawsuits. There was no sign of letting up on the controversial front either as she donned hotpants, suspenders and fishnets at the Billboard event. Top Streaming Artist, Top Rap Artist and Top Rap Album with 'Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded' went to Nicki Minaj while Top EDM Artist was none other than David Guetta who brought his wife Cathy Guetta along with him to the awards show.
The singer was booed off stage after being asked to be taken seriously, whilst wearing a leather suit.
Justin Bieber booed to finish his speech at Billboard awards? Justin Bieber took home three awards from Sunday's (May 19) Billboard Awards, but by the time he got round to picking up his third of the night he was ushered off the stage by a round of boos from the audience. In his final thank you speech the singer alluded to the difficult couple of weeks he's had on tour and urged people to only concentrate on the music and not his increasingly douche-like behaviour.
With a few boos already ringing out when his name was read out for a third time, the Canadian singer delivered his acceptance speech to an even more unforgiving reception. "I'm 19 years old; I think I'm doing a pretty good job. And basically from my heart I really just want to say it should really be about the music, it should be about the craft that I'm making. This is not a gimmick," he said, adding, "I'm an artist and I should be taken seriously and all this other bull should not be spoken."

Justin Bieber's recent concert was subject to a daring robbery
Justin Bieber suffered a major breach of security during a recent gig in South Africa, after thieves took off with an estimated $330,000 shortly after his concert at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg. Bieber insists that he has nothing to do with the daring heist, which Johannesburg police reckon was the doing of a group of professional crooks.
According to TMZ, police are saying that the thieves must have planned the raid days, if not weeks or months, before the concert took place and have potentially unmasked the highly elaborate details of how the raid happened. The S.A. law officials believe that as few as two, but potential more, thieves managed to chisel a tunnel straight into the safe room at FNB Stadium, then used ropes to lower themselves into the room where they made off with the estimated $330,000.
Justin Bieber hasn't been having a great couple of days
The stadium is currently under lockdown as police search for any leads, and although law enforcement officials have yet to find any clear evidence, they do believe the raid was an inside job.
This really hasn't been a great couple of days for the mega-rich teen heart-throb, as it was also revealed this week that his pet monkey, which he tried to smuggle into Germany, has been handed over to new carers for good. The capuchin, named Mally, had to be quarantined in Germany for six months before Biebs gave up any hope of getting him back and decided to hand him over to German authorities for good. Also, Selena Gomez pretty much cut the cord on their relationship, potentially for good, when she told Kiss 108 Radio that she is 'available.'

We tried to predict the next good week for Bieber, but it's hard
There hasn’t been that many good weeks for Justin Bieber, but this will go down as a particularly bad one. The money from one of his gigs in South Africa was stolen, and his ex-girlfriend, Selena Gomez, confirmed their most recent breakup on live radio.
“The money was taken from the building and they only realised today," said a police officer from Booysens police station in Soweto. "We don't know how many people were involved as we are still gathering evidence." South African police spokeswoman Katlego Mogale said: "The suspect had gained entry through the roof. "They broke the tile of the bathroom between last night (Sunday) after the concert and this morning." Justin Bieber's Believe tour, which began in the US last September and ends in Atlanta in August, has been nothing short of controversial at times.
Talking pretty simply to Kiss 108 Radio, Selena Gomez was candid about her relationship – or lack of – in a series of yes and no answers. This all culminated in the following exchange: "So sometimes you may see a boy walking down the street and he says, 'Let's grab a ice cream,' you're available?" the radio DJ asked. Her response? "Yep." "You're completely available in every way?" was the follow-up. She answered, "Yep!" Get the message? Selene Gomez is single!
Selena Gomez confirms she's single to KISS 108 FM.
Selena Gomez has essentially confirmed that she is no longer in a relationship with Justin Bieber, telling a KISS 108 radio station host that she's ready to be asked out on dates. According to The Sun, a DJ asked her: "So sometimes you may see a boy walking down the street and he says, 'Let's grab and ice-ream. You're available?" to which she replied, "yep," before adding, "By the way, that would be awesome if someone asked if I wanted ice cream because that would be cool."
Gomez was appearing on the radio show to promote her latest track Come & Get It, which got some added publicity last week after it was reported she had rekindled her relationship with Justin Bieber. The teen pop-star posted a picture on Instagram of her hugging his bare torso. A source to The Sun that Selena's friends attempted to stop the Spring Breakers star from reconciling with Bieber, saying, "We did everything we could to keep them apart but he was so persistent. It's really unhealthy they have such a turbulent relationship at such a young age. He leaves her in floods of tears constantly. She has had a really difficult year or so dealing with the tense emotions that come with dating him."
Selena sat down with MTV News last week to premiere her new video, which sees the singer debuting her more mature side. Of the Anthony Mandler-directed clip, Gomez explained, "It was fun for me to have a little more creative control over it.I think she's one of the best that made that transition. That video ['Slave 4 U'] is so hot, it's incredible, so I love that, and I definitely wanted to do that with my transition, but I don't think there's a path you have to follow. I think you just have to figure it out and hope for the best, so if it has a similarity, that's only a compliment."

NewNowNext awards boast impressive line-up of guests
Selena Gomez was a highlight of the weekend’s NewNowNext awards, in which celebrities are celebrated for such highly sought-after talents as having the best new hairdo, being the ‘most addictive reality star’ and having the ‘hottest, sexiest ink.’ Oh yeah. This is the important stuff, folks. Gomez rocked up on the red carpet wearing a pair of leather-look trousers and a peplum top. You thought the peplum look was on its way out, but you were wrong.
Selena Gomez: Pretty in Peplum
Selena wasn’t the only star to make a show at the awards, either. Kesha arrived looking cool in a mint green, vintage style dress and her long blond fringe almost covering her eyes. She’s obviously been paying attention to the grunge styles currently flooding the catwalk and went for the ‘if you squint, I look a lot like Courtney Love’ vibe. Black Eyed Peas’ Fergie was there, too, hiding her bump, her bump, her lovely baby bump, under an Oriental style black dress.
Arthouse filmmaker Harmony Korine (Mister Lonely) comes dangerously close to making a mainstream movie with this blackly comical thriller. While the film is often very funny, and constantly challenges our preconceptions by veering in directions we don't expect, it's also an intriguing exploration of America's hedonistic subculture.
Gomez and Hudgens also crush their Disney princess images as Faith and Candy, who decide they want to go to Florida for spring break with their pals Brit and Cotty (Benson and Korine). But they've spent all their cash on drugs, so they rob a restaurant and head to the beach. After indulging in a series of raucous parties, they end up in jail and are bailed out by a sleazy rapper-gangster who calls himself Alien (Franco). He takes them under his wing, getting them involved in his war with a dangerous cross-town rival (Mane).
The film is shot in lurid colours, with the girls wearing little more than fluorescent bikinis, sometimes accompanied with pink balaclavas. And the score by Skrillex and Cliff Martinez is visceral and hugely atmospheric, adding unexpected texture to the way Korine explores physicality, drugs and violence. It's also quite deliberate that, apart from the religiously minded Faith, these young women kind of blur together anonymously, like all the other bikini babes at the various beer-chugging, arms-in-the-air parties.

Letterman said he caught Harmony Korine stealing from Meryl Streep's purse after visiting the actress' dressing room.
David Letterman banned guest Harmony Korine from the Late Show after he found the Spring Breakers director rifling through the purse of Meryl Streep. Letterman told the story on Monday (March 25, 2013) when prompted by guest James Franco, the star of Korine' latest movie.
The actor said he heard Korine was banned after pushing Meryl Steep backstage, though defended his director, saying, "Harmony is a very sane guy now -- a great artist and great person to work with. But I think he had a period where he was going a little off the rails, so maybe he was on something that night.
Letterman proceeded to correct Franco on the incident, saying, "I went upstairs to greet Meryl Streep and welcome her to the show, and I knock on the door ... and she was not in there.And I looked around, and she was not in there, and I found Harmony going through her purse. True story. And so I said: 'That's it. Put her things back in her bag and then get out."

Spring Breakers opens in theaters this weekend and there might be more to this teenage romp than we can see at first glance.
Harmony Korine’s Spring Breakers is a big deal this… well, this spring break.
And ok, it may be mostly because of the semi-naked girls gracing the landscape throughout the whole flick, but still, Spring Breakers isn’t without its merits, if you take it for what it is. The popping color palette and at times seizure-inducing editing might put some more serious movie-goers of this, but it certainly does a lot to entice the target audience – which, for this visual romp would be bored teens and twenty-somethings. But don’t be fooled – beyond the bikinis and hot pink tones, Spring Breakers, which premiered last week at SXSW does have some substance as well. Ok, a little substance. But still.
Firstly, let’s talk about Disney actresses playing girls gone wild. Well, it’s fun and, let’s be honest – it’s a much healthier way for ladies like Vanessa Hudgens and Selena Gomez to break out of the Disney mould than, say leaking nude pictures online. And, to be fair, Gomez does show remarkable depth of character – well, as much as the Spring Breakers script will allow anyway.
Continue reading: Spring Breakers Wide Release - Is This One Worth Seeing?
Spring Breakers was the massive success story at the weekend's box office, despite not cracking the Top 5.
Though 'Oz: The Great and Powerful' dominated the box office for a second consecutive week - pulling In $42 million to take its takings to $282 million - it was another of James Franco's movies that performed the strongest. Harmony Korine's debauched drama 'Spring Breakers' pulled in just $270,000, though it did so from just three theaters, easily the best per-theater average of the weekend with $90,000. Oz averaged just $11,000 per theater.
The new movie is now likely to roll out across more theaters and should turn a profit for Muse Productions and A24, the tiny companies behind the film. It stars Franco as a thuggish drug dealer who charms college girls Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens into a world of crime, sex and violence. It looks to be Korine's biggest hit to date and represents Gomez and Hudgens' first serious roles outside of their Disney work - the former is best known for Wizards of Waverly Place while Hudgens found fame with High School Musical.
So far, critical reception has been strong too, with Spring Breakers earning a solid 70% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The New York Times said, "[Korine] turns his exploration into such a gonzo, outrageously funny party that it takes a while to appreciate that this is more of a horror film than a comedy," while Peter Travers of Rolling Stone magazine wrote, "Spring Breakers, beach-party fluff done as an art film by the reliably bizarre Harmony Korine, is a return to form for Franco."

The real kids on Spring Break
Selena Gomez is filming Spring Breakers – the Harmony Korine-directed movie – but it was the real kids on their own Spring Break that stole the headlines, Gomez explains.
Gomez at the Spring Breakers premiere
“That's the craziest thing I've ever experienced," she told MTV News. "We would literally be doing takes, and we were surrounded by real spring breakers," co-star Ashley Benson explained. "We were kind of thrown into this whole thing and just — I've never seen anything like it. Literally, girls would be making out and their clothes would come off, and I was like, 'Oh god, the bottoms!' And then they'd come off. [I was thinking], I don't even know what I'm doing here." Anyone would have thought Korine put out a casting call for extras, trying to get the real essence of Spring Break into her movie, but no. “Totally willingly by these girls," she explained. "No one asked them to do it. You get to see us in the scenes react naturally to our environment because we didn't know what was about to happen,” she added. As Selena Gomez admits, "I know we've never been on spring break, so I've never actually been to motel parties where you hop to each room. That's what this was."
Selena Gomez talked about the challenges and the rewards of acting in Spring Breakers - a definite change of pace from her clean-cut Disney career.
This has, of course, been a huge transition for the former Disney girl – from Disney channel to R-rated flicks is certainly a big jump to make. However, in an interview with MTV, Selena commented that she enjoyed the chance to break out of her mould and experiment as an actress: "It wasn't necessarily about the reaction as it was just for me wanting to do something that was creatively challenging for me, because acting is everything to me," she said. "And it's the reason why I'm here." Gomez also mentioned that she appreciated the chance to work with indie director Corine, as his style was exactly in the direction she was planning to take with her career. Interestingly enough though, it was apparently Selena’s mom, who gave her the final push to star in the R-rated flick: "Well, my mom is actually a big Harmony Korine fan, and we got the script through my agency," she told MTV News during a chat at South by Southwest. "I read it, I watched all of his movies with my mom and [watched] interviews, and I wanted to be a part of it."
Selena Gomez stars in Spring Breakers alongside Vaness Hudgens and Ashley Benson.
Spring Breakers premiered at the SXSW Festival on Sunday.
Harmony Korine's new movie 'Spring Breakers' premiered at the South by Southwest Festival in Austin, Texas, on Sunday (March 10, 2013) with its stars Selena Gomez, James Franco and Ashley Benson turning out for the screening. The movie follows four friends, (Benson, Gomez, Rachel Korine and Vanessa Hudgens) as they rob a bank to pay for their spring break trip, though get thrown in jail before being bailed out by a drug dealer, played by Franco.
The movie premiered at the Austin Convention Center, with Gomez showing off an elegant looking Cushine et Ochs frock. The dress featured cut-out detailing at the shoulders and across the midriff - Gomez certainly showed her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber what he was missing. The sexual and violent themes in 'Spring Breakers' are certainly a departure from Gomez's usual Disney movies, though speaking to FlavorWire at SXSW, director Korine said he isn't too concerned with analysis of his films. "It's funny for me to listen to it," he said, adding, "But I don't really have that much to do with that part of things, I don't have a relationship with that type of analysis. I usually make the movies, and I put them together, and I put them out into the world and then I just go home and cut off as much as possible from all that."
Spring Breakers runs this week at SXSW and opens Friday (March 15, 2013) on limited release. The movie receives a nationwide opening on March 22. Watch the Spring Breakers below.
