More on Selena Gomez, Courtesy of ABC and dick clark productions:
Selena Gomez made her mark in entertainment by conquering film, music and television at an early age. On the big screen, she began making the transition from young actress to adulthood with such films as the much talked about Harmony Korine’s “Spring Breakers.” The film premiered at the Venice Film Festival to critical acclaim while Gomez’s performance was singled out as a “breakout.” She appeared in the Academy Award® nominated film “The Big Short” opposite Brad Pitt and Ryan Gosling as well as “Fundamentals of Caring” alongside Paul Rudd. The later film premiered at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival and Gomez was named by Vulture.com as one of “The 20 Best Performances of Sundance 2016.” Other credits include: “Rudderless,” “Neighbors 2” and the James Franco directed “Indubious Battle.” She is currently filming the untitled Woody Allen feature opposite Timothée Chalamet, Elle Fanning and Jude Law.
As a recording artist, Selena has sold over 50 million tracks worldwide. She recently released two new singles “Bad Liar” and “Fetish” which garnered enthusiastic reviews. Entertainment Weekly wrote Gomez is making “the most unexpected pop music of the year” while Rolling Stone proclaimed the first single as “smart and streamlined.” In 2015, Gomez released her critically acclaimed album “Revival.” The first three singles off the album “Good For You,” “Same Old Love” and “Hands to Myself” went to number one on the US Top 40 chart. Gomez joins an elite group and becomes only the sixth female artist to have at least three songs from one album reach the #1 position since the chart launched in 1992. Gomez has added executive producer to her impressive list of credits serving as an executive producer of the hit Netflix original series “13 Reasons Why.”
Giving back has always been an important element in her life. She was named the youngest goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF at 18 years old and has worked tirelessly to support this organization ever since. Gomez has traveled to Ghana, Chile and Nepal as an advocate for some of the world’s most vulnerable children with UNICEF. Selena was honored for her continued support at Variety’s first ever Unite4: Humanity event with the Young Humanitarian Award alongside Bill Clinton. She has hosted “We Day” in Vancouver, Chicago and Los Angeles for We The Children, an organization that empowers young people to achieve their fullest potential as agents of change by being active local and global citizens.
