Selena Gomez Debuts 'Love You Like A Love Song'
From Japanese Karaoke goer to a 'let them eat cake' corset wearing Marie Antoinette to a space age beauty enthusiast, Selena Gomez sure is showing some range in her new music video for 'Love You Like a Love Song.'
But what's one thing that's noticeably absent from Justin Bieber's girl's video? The pastel purple ponies Gomez had painted for the video -- a move that severely angered her fellow pop songstress and animal rights activist, Pink. But what the ponies left out Gomez certainly made up for her with her best 50's Pink Lady impressions and Bohemian romance novel recreations.
"This song is fun and I wanted it to be really high fashion and different and I think we have accomplished that," Gomez told E! News.
And according to Gomez, this "fun" love song is all about her past and current flames.
"Because I'm only 18, I think love is supposed to be really fun," she explained. "So that's how I interpret it, at this point in my life. I think it's really fun and you are supposed to enjoy it, kinda dive in."
Gomez sure is 'diving in' when it comes to her wet and wild PDA with Bieber -- it's good to see this teen queen is taking her own advice. So does Gomez love the 'Baby' singer like a love song?
"Maybe," she coyly answered. We'll take that as a yes.
Selena Marie Gomez was born to Mandy Cornett and Ricardo Gomez on July 22, 1992. At a young age, she moved from New York to Grand Prairie, Texas. Giving birth to Selena at 16, her mom Mandy recalls living "paycheck-to-paycheck". Selena started out on "Barney & Friends" (1992) as "Gianna" in 2001 where she really discovered her talent. Unfortunately, they dropped her from the series after just two years. In 2003, she had a very small role in the movie Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over (2003) and a bit part in 2005 when she played "Julie" in Walker, Texas Ranger: Trial by Fire (2005) (TV) with Mitchel Musso and in 2006 as "Emily Grace Garcia" in Brain Zapped (2006) (TV) when she recorded a song for the movie. She she guest starred as "Gwen" in "The Suite Life of Zack and Cody" (2005) and as Hannah's rival, the 'evil' "Mikayla", in "Hannah Montana" (2006). Selena's amazing talent landed her roles in two Disney series, both spin-offs. Unfortunately, neither show was picked up until 2007 when she got the role of "Alex Russo" in the magical series "Wizards of Waverly Place" (2007) which she auditioned for three times. In March 2008, she made her first animated movie Horton Hears a Who! (2008) and later starred in Another Cinderella Story (2008) (V) with Disney Channel star Andrew Seeley for ABC Family. Her two Disney Channel Original Movies Princess Protection Program (2009) (TV), with real-life BFF Demi Lovato, and Wizards of Waverly Place: The Movie (2009) (TV) will both air Summer 2009.
