PROUD OF HER NAME
Selena is proud to take her name from the extremely popular and always remembered Tex-Mex singer Selena Quintanilla, who was tragically murdered in 1995. "It's such an honor to be named after someone so amazing", she once said in an interview.

Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Fantasia, Beauty and the Beast, Toy Story... We have so many things to thanks Disney for. And Selena Gomez is one of them. After all, it was her roles in the Disney Channel's Hannah Montana and Wizards of Waverly Place that catapulted her to worldwide fame.

BEAUTIFUL YOUNG WOMAN
Having followed her career since her Disney days in 2007, it makes us proud to see Selena grow into a beautiful young Latina who can wear high fashion with ease. Here she is at the LA premiere of her movie Spring Breakers, in a Reem Acra dress, which she complemented with a Jimmy Choo clutch and jewelry by Lorraine Schwartz.

How many of men screamed "Yes!" when they saw Selena (second from left) break out the bikini and get in big trouble in her newest movie, Spring Breakers? This promo shot of alongside co-stars Ashley Benson (left), Vanessa Hudgens (second from right), Rachel Korine (right) pretty much stated that Selena was just not that innocent anymore. And she was able to pull this off without losing an ounce of her good reputation. Well done!

SUCH A GOOD CHICA
Forget her rebellious Spring Breakers character. The real-life Selena Gomez has a pretty big heart and is involved in several humane causes. She has done extensive work as spokesperson for UNICEF, and she also recently joined City of Hope in a campaign to fight cancer, diabetes and HIV/AIDS.

DRESSING HER AGE
In spite of her success and her coming-of-age, Selena keeps a good head on her shoulders and dresses according to both the occasion and her age. A perfect example: her outfit at the 2013 Kid's Choice Awards.
