Is Selena Gomez Trying To Be More Like Miley Cyrus?

Tue, June 28, 2011 3:59pm EDT by 103 Comments

Selena may not be decked out in bondage gear and taking off her clothes like Miley, but she seems to be following the same music and movie track of her Disney predecessor!

Miley Cyrus has transitioned from Disney star to serious actor and singer in the past few years, making some serious money in the process! The 18-year-old pulled in a whooping $15 million in 2010, and it seems like at least one young star is trying to follow in her super successful footsteps — Selena Gomez!

Selena recently wrapped filming on her hit show, Wizards of Waverly Place, and is now starring in her first major film, Monte Carlo. Much like Miley, after she finished filming Hannah Montana, starred in the well received The Last Song. Worked well for Miley and it looks like it will work for Selena. Miley has since shot LOL: Laughing Out Loud and So Undercover, transitioning from television star to movie star. Selena is no doubt hoping to do exactly the same.

Miley also became more involved in her music career after leaving her show, just like Selena is now doing. Miley’s songs were featured in The Last Song just like Selena’s will be in Monte Carlo. Furthermore, Selena is embarking on a major tour, just like Miley did, in support of her new album.

As for extracurricular activities, Selena hosted the MuchMusic Video Awards in 2011, just like Miley did in 2010.

There are also the high profile relationships which, while in no way planned, hugely help the visibility of these young stars. Selena and boyfriend Justin Bieber are the young Hollywood couple of the moment, much like Miley and beau Liam Hemsworth once were.

Miley did alienate some fans with her more grown up image as she moved away from Hannah Montana, but her success has been undeniable. Therefore, it seems like she would be the perfect person for Selena to emulate as she tries to further her career.

Do you think Selena is trying to be more like Miley HollywoodLifers?

Miley is beautiful and very successful. Selena’s boring, she just makes music. At least Miley has some character and isn’t boring to look at, like Selena is. Selena needs to wake up a bit, and STOP FRICKEN WRITING BREAK UP SONGS AND TAKING TAYLOR SWIFTS ADVICE. Taylor has had like 293747382737 boyfriends and then dumps them and writes a song about them… Like wtf?

Miley Cyrus is not a slut, she has a beautiful body and personality. Your just jealous try hards. Selena is also beautiful, but just remember they both came off Disney channel. Selena feels threatened by Miley because she thinks Miley is trying to hook up with Justin, but actually Miley just wants to be friends with him and Selena. But Selena’s denying it.
Btw Justin is a sex god.

Sharmila, That’s completely not true. Selena Gomez needs to grow up sometime, she needs to get out and try new things and because Selena is doing things Miley did, that doesn’t mean she wants to be like her because I’m pretty sure that’s not how it is. Selena Gomez doesn’t NEED Justin Bieber for publicity, she was already famous? She’s rising to fame all on her own. It takes more than a famous boyfriend to do what shes doing and shes doing everything the right way. The first sentence of this whole article shows shes not going in Miley’s shoes because shes appropriate. Who really cares if its fake or she does things in her OWN PRIVATE TIME that her fans don’t know about. THATS THE WAY IT SHOULD BE. Miley let her young fans down when she acted like a stripper, yet Selena is always thinking of them. She is in the same position where she wants to grow out of Disney, just like Miley wanted but you can’t tell me honestly that Miley did a better job? If you had a daughter and you had to pick between Miley and Selena who she’d be like what would you pick?
If you picked Miley just to be right, I’m scared that your okay with your daughter smoking. But Selena doesn’t need anyone to give her what she needs. She gave it to herself.

No, Selena is not trying to be like Miley. All Disney starlets begin to look into more serious, grown-up roles after age 18 or so.

I think that no one could evr copy Miley Cyrus. She’s too perfect. But I do think tht Selena Gomez is trying very hard to be succesful like Miley, which is good.

i dont think she being like her miley has an amazing career and they both kind of have to do the same things to transition from disney stars to adult stars because they do the same thing anyway they both sing and act

She doesnt want to be on disney foreverrr! & oohh, everyone seems to date people they work with. Maybe they asked her to be the host. Why would she turn it down? She likes too sing, lotsa famous people go on tour & have their music in their movies

I bet all of you guys saying Miley Cyrus is the best probably are 9-12 years old >_<
Selena is not copying Miley Cyrus (Yhur idol ) every Disney channel star does singing and a tv show …… Hillary duff was first than Miley can Yhu say that Miley Cyrus copied Hilary ? Think about that
In my opinion I like Selena Gomez better because of her originality she's pretty , sings good Is a good role model not like Miley
I bet all of y'all gonna be just like her and good luck in life 9-12 year olds
