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.
