18 THINGS YOU DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT SELENA GOMEZ

18. Kissing And Telling
While filming 2012’s Spring Breakers, co-star and director James Franco reportedly made Selena Gomez reshoot the scene in which she makes out with him - more than 7 times. This was apparently a joke on Franco’s part, but Gomez mentioned in a later interview that James is a good kisser, and that she “didn’t do it enough”. The movie was a big hit, and we can only imagine this was in part due to the sparks Franco and Gomez displayed on-screen.

17. Staged For Success
Selena Marie Gomez was born on July 22nd, 1992. She was an only child for the first 13 years of her life, and grew up in Grand Prairie, Texas. Her mother, Amanda Dawn Cornett, is a retired stage actress. Gomez’s two younger siblings were born after her parents separated, each having another child with their new spouses. She’s stated that she first began to be interested in a life in the spotlight after watching her mom prepare for her stage performances.

16. Providing
The Path Selena’s mother, Amanda Dawn Cornett, gave birth to Selena when she was just 16 years old. This caused their small family to endure financial hardship, and it was made even harder when her parents split up when Gomez was just 5 years old. Her mother then struggled to provide for the two, and Selena says she recalls the two of them having to search for quarters in order to get gas for their car. Many of the pair’s meals were purchased from a nearby dollar store, and her mom worked 3 jobs to make ends meet. Times were extremely tough during this period, but Gomez has since stated that it has given her perspective on wealth and success.


15. What’s In A Name?
Selena’s mom named her after the famous Tejano singer who bore the same first name. That singer was of course Selena Quintanilla-Perez, who died in 1995, murdered just 3 years after Selena Gomez was born. It makes sense that Selena would go on to be a famous singer in her own right; and she has stated that her namesake has been a source of inspiration for her career.

14. Selena and Friends
Gomez met her lifelong friend Demi Lovato while the two were auditioning for the show Barney and Friends. Both girls were selected to appear in a 2002 episode in the series, and this would be Selena’s first experience with acting. She went on to appear in fourteen additional episodes, but was released from future roles because the show’s producers felt she was getting too old. She would continue her friendship with Lovato for years to come, however, and the two even had their own YouTube series at one point. This did not turn into anything bigger, however, mostly as a result of their career paths taking them in different directions. Nevertheless, the two remain close friends.

13. Less Than Magical
While Selena Gomez states that she loves the sciences - specifically earth science - she apparently isn’t much of a fan of magic. This is, of course, despite her starring role in Wizards of Waverly Place. Nevertheless, she has said on multiple occasions that magical movie franchises like Harry Potter are just not her thing. Regarding science, though, Gomez says that it was always her favorite subject in school. She has also said that she continues to have an interest in science, and loves hearing about new advancements in those fields of study.

12. Keeping Up With The Jenners
Although Selena Gomez has been seen as a close friend of Kendall and Kylie Jenner for quite some time, in 2014 she reportedly unfollowed both of them on Instagram after learning that they’d been spending time with Justin Bieber. She also deleted most of the pictures on her profile which showed them together, indicating that she was pretty upset about the whole thing. There were even rumors at one point that a fight between Selena and the Jenners would be featured on Keeping Up With The Kardashians - though that didn’t end up happening. Nevertheless, as of this year they seem to have patched things up - Kylie made some nice comments about Selena’s appearance at the Grammys, and Gomez has said that rumors of their alleged feud continuing are not true.

11. The Honest Truth
In 2015, Selena Gomez revealed to her fans that she suffers from Lupus, an autoimmune disease which is characterized by chronic pain and aches which can affect nearly any part of the body at any time. She also revealed that this was the reason she cancelled her 2013 tour - her symptoms were prohibitively intense. She also suffered from depression at this time, caused in part by the headlines she read, speculating incorrectly as to why she’d withdrawn from the spotlight. She says that the truth of the matter is that she was in chemotherapy at the time.

10. Pink With Embarrassment
Although the song “Love You Like A Love Song” was a huge success for Gomez, she came under fire when filming the music video for the song. This was because she apparently decided to have several horses spray-painted pink for the video. PETA, an organization dedicated to ending animal cruelty, came out strongly against the action, stating that there is no safe way to paint an animal, since paint can cause painful allergic reactions. After a large controversy as a result of the incident, Selena decided to cut all scenes with the painted horses from the video. Fellow star Pink even came out against Gomez’s actions, stating that “...artists should be more aware and responsible for their actions”.

9. Those In Need
Selena Gomez is a well-known and outspoken human rights activist, and actually became UNICEF’s youngest-ever Ambassador in 2009, when she was just 17. Since then, she’s played a large role in helping to advocate for the rights of children throughout the world. She has stated that she took on the role as a result of the dire need to help children who die from preventable causes - a figure she states is as high as 25,000 per day. Gomez now divides much of her time away from singing to the causes UNICEF supports, and her frequent humanitarian efforts can be seen both on the UNICEF website and her own social media.

8. A Spoonful Of...Olive Oil?
Gomez claims that her secret to preserving her amazing singing voice is that she drinks olive oil directly before going on stage. She says that during her tours, she often suffers from a sore throat - understandably so - and that taking a small drink of olive oil helps to soothe her vocal cords before she performs. She says it tastes terrible, but that because of the way it coats your throat, it helps to ensure that her voice sounds as great as possible for her fans.

7. Netting Some Cash
Gomez has a net worth of more than $45 million. A percentage of her annual income reportedly comes from the star’s Instagram feed, where she has more than 100 million followers. In fact, it’s estimated that she earns somewhere around $550,000 per post. This is mainly due to the tremendous influence she wields for her fans - they are likely to purchase any product they see Gomez using. Besides that, she also makes quite a bit from her concerts, merchandise, and acting gigs, with estimates putting her average annual income around $7 million.

6. A Pickle
In Particular Gomez apparently has an obsession with sour flavors. She’s said before that she is known to eat lemons whole and by themselves, occasionally adding a little salt to them. Further, she says that a favorite food of hers are deep fried pickles from Hooters, and that one of her favorite food combinations is popcorn and pickle juice. She has also said before, though somewhat jokingly, that she’d like to pioneer a pickle flavored gum.

5. Crushing It
It’s often forgotten that stars were once, and in many ways still are, completely normal people. Selena Gomez reminded us all of this when she met Shia LeBeouf unexpectedly. She reacted extremely nervously, as can be seen in the video which catches the encounter on film. Later, she said that the reason for her somewhat embarrassing reaction was due to having a “celebrity crush” on Shia.

4. Never Say Never
Although the “teen power couple” of Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber has been over for some time now, Gomez has said in an interview previously that she “doesn’t know” if she would never consider a reunion. She has said that romantic relationships are not her focus as of right now, but the comment gave hope to many who want to see the two as an item once again.

3. Bad Blood
Between 2013 and 2015, Selena Gomez had a fairly public feud with fellow singer and Taylor Swift fan Lorde. The two were seen multiple times glaring at each other at public events, and also had some...not so nice things to say about one another. Sources close to the feud said that it was based on Selena’s jealousy of Lorde, particularly because “Lorde wrote her own musical success, Selena can’t write or produce on her own.” Lorde also apparently said that she “has no interest in arguing with Selena, because she doesn’t think she is a real musician.” Although the two publicly buried the hatchet at the 2014 VMAs - both of them performed at the event and showed their support for mutual friend Taylor Swift - comments have surfaced from both sides which seem to indicate that there’s still some animosity between them.

2. Smoking Gun
As of October 2016, Selena Gomez is confirmed to be in a rehabilitation facility in Tennessee. She says that she placed herself in the facility in order to recover from anxiety, panic attacks, and depression, and that she will be taking a break from the spotlight for the time being to ensure a full recovery. Interestingly, several photos of Gomez in the facility appear to show her smoking a cigarette. If she is a smoker, it wasn’t known until now. It’s not confirmed; though some images do show Selena clearly, the photos of her smoking don’t show her face. If so, this would only serve as fuel for the drug accusations she’s already faced. Gomez’s staff posted to her Twitter feed that it was not in fact her holding the cigarette in the photo, and that this is just an attempt by the paparazzi to drum up a story.

1. Finely Aged
There are rumors abound that Gomez is considering plastic surgery on her face. While she has openly stated that she is comfortable with her appearance and now accepts that many people find her attractive, she apparently has been affected by certain comments. Many people have referred to her as having a “sexy body but a 12-year-old face”, and apparently Gomez has considered getting plastic surgery to look a bit older. Though she has never publicly admitted to having had appearance altering procedures, this has not stopped the rumor mill from speculating that it’s actually already happened.
