Selena Gomez Biography
Gomez, born in 1992 and raised in Texas, received her big break as a cast member of the children’s television program Barney and Friends. After that, she was cast in supporting roles in several different TV shows, but her connection to the Disney Channel, which found her during a nationwide talent hunt in 2004, gave her acting career its official start.
The Wizards of Waverly Place, which debuted in October 2007 and swiftly rose to prominence on the network, was made possible by Gomez’s guest appearances on Hannah Montana and The Suite Life of Zach and Cody. Gomez started balancing her obligations to The Wizards of Waverly Place with other work, such as movie appearances and her developing singing career.
Her group Selena Gomez & the Scene issued a trio of breezy modern pop albums from 2009 to 2011 that each hit the Top Ten. After going solo, she scored a pair of number ones with the more adult-oriented Stars Dance (2013) and Revival (2015), then branched out into new sounds on collaborations with Kygo (“It Ain’t Me”) and Marshmello (“Wolves”).
According to the review aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes, Gomez’s most critically acclaimed television and film projects include the following:
The Suite Life of Zack & Cody (2006), Hannah Montana (2007), Wizards of Waverly Place (2007–2012), Another Cinderella Story (2008), Princess Protection Program (2009), Ramona and Beezus (2010), The Muppets (2011), Spring Breakers (2012), Hotel Transylvania (2012), Girl Rising (2013), The Wizards Return: Alex vs. Alex (2013), Rudderless (2014), The Fundamentals of Caring (2016), Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising (2016), The Dead Don’t Die (2019), A Rainy Day in New York (2019), Selena + Chef (2020–present), and Only Murders in the Building (2021–present).
Gomez also executive produced the television series 13 Reasons Why (2017–2020) and Living Undocumented (2019).
Ex-boyfriends & Current Boyfriend
Selena Gomez has been entangled in a handful of relationships with famous musicians, though she always tries to keep her love life under wraps. Here is a brief timeline of her famous boyfriends:
Gomez and Jonas briefly dated for a few months in 2008, sending Jonas Brothers fans into a frenzy. Gomez opened up about their romance in 2015, saying it was “like puppy love, you know, it was very sweet.”
Gomez and Lautner met in Vancouver in 2009 while she was filming “Ramona and Beezus” and he was filming “Twilight: New Moon.” Unfortunately, their young love didn’t last long. In the September 2009 issue of Seventeen, Gomez confirmed their breakup, citing their lifestyles as the cause.
Henrie played Gomez’s TV brother on Disney Channel’s “Wizards of Waverly Place,” and the two remained good friends after the show ended in 2012. In 2014, Seventeen reported that they went on a date, but it appears nothing ever came of it.
Gomez and Bieber had a five-year roller-coaster romance filled with ups and downs, which seemed to have ended in 2015. Things got rocky in 2017 when Gomez started dating The Weeknd, but she and Bieber got back together at the end of that year, only to split again in March 2018.
Gomez and Zedd briefly dated in early 2015, despite Diplo’s claims that the whole thing was a publicity stunt.
Puth and Gomez first met at the 2015 MTV VMAs. In a 2018 interview with Billboard, Puth spoke about his relationship with Gomez. However, shortly after Billboard published the piece, a source told People that Gomez and Puth “never dated.”
Krost and Gomez ran in the same circle of friends, so they obviously hung out. However, rumours swirled when the two were spotted holding hands on their way to NYC restaurant Cipriani in November 2015 and again in Beverly Hills in January 2016. After their breakup, Krost officially confirmed that they dated in a now-deleted Instagram post in August 2016.
Horan and his One Direction bandmates presented Gomez with the award for best pop video at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards. The two reportedly started cozying up to each other sometime after. They were linked again in late 2019, but in December 2019, on Gold Coast’s “Breakfast With Lise, Sarah, Dan & Ben,” Horan claimed that he was “very much single.”
Gomez and Bloom were photographed together in 2014, and though nothing was confirmed back then, the pair were said to have cozied up in Las Vegas at the singer’s “Revival” tour launch party in 2016.
In January 2017, the “Dawn FM” singer and Gomez were kissing in Los Angeles. Three months later, the pair went official by posting photos of each other on Instagram. However, after dating for ten months, Gomez and The Weeknd split. It is said the two broke up due to distance and their busy schedules.
