Why is Selena Gomez Famous
Texas native, Selena Gomez grew up in front of television audiences as a Disney television star. One of her biggest hits was playing Alex on the popular show Wizards of Waverly Place, which was a big hit with the pre-teen and teen crowd.
This helped grow her career. It wasn’t the first time she was on TV, but it was what launched her to the next level. She went onto a singing career as well and has since become a massive superstar.
Selena Gomez Brief History
Selena Gomez is both a massively popular singer and actress. For a while, she also held the title of the celebrity with the highest amount of Instagram followers.
She’s since been knocked out of the top spot, but don’t worry, she’s still sitting in the top 10.
She built a huge following through her work with Disney Channel. The Wizards of Waverly Place securely put her on the map. And while she spent years with Disney, she actually started her acting career as Gianna on Barney & Friends. She was born in 1992 and hails from Grand Prairie, Texas.
These days it’s her singing career that’s kept her star shining. Her latest release, Rare, is her third solo album. Prior to her solo career, she sang with Selena Gomez and the Scene, and also put out three albums under that band name.
A UNICEF ambassador at the age of 17, made her the youngest ambassador at the time. Her record has since been broken by 14-year-old, Millie Bobby Brown. Still an honor, nonetheless.
Selena’s first big breakthrough hit was “Come & Get It” which launched onto the Billboard Top 10 chart. In 2017, she was awarded the Billboard Woman of the Year slot.
