DISNEY DARLING SELENA GOMEZ HAS A MAGIC MOMENT IN THE JUNE/JULY ISSUE OF TEEN VOGUE, ON NEWSSTANDS MAY 19 NATIONWIDE
SELENA GOMEZ TEEN VOGUE June - July 2009
With upcoming made-for-TV movies The Wizards of Waverly Place and Princess Protection Program, spunky tween starlet Selena Gomez is racing up the Hollywood ladder. But as magical as her life is, the sixteen-year-old Disney Channel star is quite the realist: “I like to dream, but I also like to be realistic. Sometimes, when something is so nice and sweet, I just crush it. I don’t mean to, but I don’t want to be let down.”
Princess Protection Program, a film Selena starred in with her real-life best friend, Demi Lovato, will premiere in June. The story, which shows what friendship really means and the good it can bring out in people, mirrors the supportive relationship Selena and Demi have: “We’re both surrounded by adults 24/7, and we have to act professional, but when we’re together we can just be sixteen. We watch movies, talk about boys, and do each other’s hair and makeup.”
As far as love goes, Selena admits that what she looks for in a boyfriend has changed a lot lately. With one serious relationship behind her—she dated superfamous Nick Jonas of the Jonas Brothers—she happily confesses: “I want what I deny. I want someone who is crazy about me, who treats me like a princess. I want the picture-perfect fairy-tale stuff.”
