Is Selena Gomez Trying To Be More Like Miley Cyrus?

Tue, June 28, 2011 3:59pm EST 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?

Selena Gomez is her own person. Every one knows that if you star on a disney tv show then you start singing i.e. hillary duff. Alot of people don’t like Selena becasue of her boyfriend so she gets backlash over that

NO, the lesson to children should be…
“Be the best of yourself, you may hit some rocks and do some mistakes, but you learn from them and avoid doing them AGAIN!”
Not only because she’s from Disney should she be doing things that publicly look wrong at HER AGE! She’s a KID, 18 is a KID!
Accept or not people, I am not justifying her actions, but the girl has to find a way for not only her but her future kids, because the problem isn’t about being yourself, it’s about being the BEST of yourself, because whether starlets like it or not the world is cruel and the press isn’t going to get any nicer.

I agree with this article a little bit because i always knew that miley and Selena hated each other. they always said they were friends but i never believe them. i hate Selena i mean she thinks she so perfect now that she is dating Justin babier . it not going to last long i mean im happy for them . miley Cyrus is awesome i don’t care what people think about her because i her biggest fan… Selena is a good person and never dose anything bad like miley Cyrus. sometime Selena dose copy of off miley like for example Selena had to star in her very first movie and end he show on Disney channel.

That was a very childish and immature comment.Obviously you’re a Miley fan which is fine but to put someone like Selena down is so lame. How is a brat? Just because you say so? It’s a crying shame that people like you can’t respect someone just because you don’t like them. Grow up already!

Say what???In what ways Selena is better than Miley?trying to teach a little kids to be perfect which is not good.people do mistakes and learn from it because if you dont make mistakes,you are dead meat.I mean really,Selena is older than miley but miley became popular first before selena,am i right?there is no comparison,Miley is better in singing,writing her own song,playing instruments and none of those can selena play,so open your eyes and see.:) :)

Her fans love her because she is playing a game to be more popular.why she didnt do it the first time before miley became famous.she is older than miley then why miley is famous than her?any selena’s fans can aanswer that or i will,”BECAUSE THEY DONT TRUST SELENA TALENT WHAT EVER YOU CALL IT AND THEY KNEW THAT MILEY IS BETTER THAN HER”,isnt it?Now that her b.f. is a big time like Justin Bieber,then she became popular now.By the way,she is not good in acting an singing coz i heard all her songs and saw her previous movie,honestly,i’m ROFL,because she is not good either way.:) :)

I am sorry to go against your statement obviously Miley started first with Disney–that is why Selena was being introduced to Hannah Montana by Disney Management. Selena didn’t have any choice on that. That is what you called “her first exposure”– and being introduced gradually in Disney’s shows. I didn’t understand why Selena was rejected by a Disney Director when she was 11 because she could actually act, some people can be racist just saying. I saw it in her audition, it’s way way better than what Miley did. Miley got her first show because of her father, whether you like it or not it is the truth. The public likes it so it became a hit. If Selena was in her place, it would also become popular. The show itself was a good sell. Miley has started in showbiz like when she was 11. Selena technically started in the business when she was 14. You cannot compare apple to orange. They both could sing in their own way. Selena could sing but she needs to be more confident on stage. I think she can get really nervous sometimes. You can see that even when she won an award, she sorts of lose a little bit of her composure, she’s very emotional. You cannot fake out your emotions. Selena is “perfect” in the entertainment world that is why you guys think it is not real, but that’s her–she thinks first before she does anything. That’s good in a way because you don’t want to make huge mistakes and regret it forever. That’s also why the media loves her. Taking risk is not being honest–most specially when it is something you and everybody knows is wrong–it is just showing your bratty side because your are fighting back the norm.

On a good note, Selena is becoming more confident now than ever, that’s why she is getting invites to host shows. Great job for being so professional and not messing it–even with Bieber goofing around her. Selena is also developing her vocal with the tour as well.

According to Forbes Magazine, Miley Cyrus made $48 million from June 2009 to June 2010. Considering that she made $10 million a piece for two movies made after June 2010, and she made other money in the second half of 2010–Microsoft paid her $1.2 million in Dec. for a half-hour concert–I don’t see where you got the figure of $15 million for 2010? Once again, Hollywood life, you seem to go out of your way to get it wrong! And yes, Selena will do well to follow in Miley’s footsteps. Still, Selena was paid less than $1.5 million for her work on Monte Carlo, so she’s got a ways to go to catch up to Miley’s earning power.

@ ilman,sorry sweety but all hollywood people cares about money including Selena.You know why i know,because she is trying to use her voice but it sucks,(sorry for my language) and making movies but she looks like a statue and when she performed on stage she doesnt know how,she used her two arms but i dont know what to say.my advice is just watch her and you will see to yourself.I bet you are better than her,just saying if they give you a chance like her.
