Selena Gomez Admits: I'll Probably Quit Music & Stick To Acting! Would YOU Miss Her Songs?

Tue, August 2, 2011 2:41pm EDT by 43 Comments

Selena Gomez says she’s going to hang up her music career eventually to focus on her acting! Do YOU think it’s a good idea?

Selena Gomez originally got her start as young and spunky comedic actress, so it’s no surprise acting is her first love. However, the 19-year-old performer doesn’t think she’ll always have space in her life for her second passion: music.

“I think I’ll probably stick to one thing. Probably acting,” Selena told E! News. “I think music is going to be in my life for sure, whether it’s me in my house singing or in the car, but I just feel like that’s where I belong.”

The former Disney darling added, “I feel like music is obviously a wonderful palette to grow, but it’s more comfortable for me to grow as a character as opposed to myself, if that makes sense.”

Selena has released three albums with her band Selena Gomez & the Scene and is on her first ever tour, We Own the Night. Needless to say, she’s doing a pretty great job dominating both acting AND music.

Do YOU think she should throw in the towel? Sound off below.

Selena's biggest fan

Posted at 11:05 AM on April 14, 2012  

I adore selena gomez and her singing. Im not some crazed fan i mean if i ever got to meet her i wouldnt freak id want to become friends with her. She seems nice and i think if shes going to stick to one thing it should be singing. I like her acting as well but her singing i would say is my favorite. Im young a tween who tends to have a fav singer but then they go all wierd. For example Miley Cyrus i used to like her but then she went all crazy and now Selena is my star and if she quits singing i just dont know what id do. I really dont want her to quit. Dont Quit Singing Selena!

Selena has a very cute voice, though watching her live, one can’t fail to admit that she needs autotune to be successful with music. Besides, Disney Stars would never be taken seriously in singing unless they make desperate moves (like Britney did, or Miley trying to do ryt now). So quiting singing might be a wise choice for her, since even her acting is not that good yet. Focusing on one field might help her improve her image, and not just a squeaky-clean girl from Disney :/

Well, she’s not a terrible actress, just decent. She should stick to acting to be honest. If she wants to be taken seriously, she should pick more mature roles and take a risk for once. As for the singing, be honest, when has any star from Disney continued to sing after their contract was up? None. Her singing is not the best and it won’t last. My prediction: she’ll be around for a little while.

To all those slamming Selena I say you are all just jealous haters. Selena is a wonderful woman with great acting talent & an amazing gift of music. I am proud of Selena for all that she has accomplished. I cannot imagine a world without Selena’s acting & music in it. If Hollywood cannot recognize such a well gifted & talented young woman like Selena then it is their lose & sadly ours too. We should be encouraging Selena to continue to share her gifts & talents with us, because she brings out the best in people while still maintaining a level head not many in Hollywood can say that. I personally hope to meet Selena face to face, because she’s a repectful individual & that’s not just because she shows others respect, it is that she also has great self-respect. NO ONE has the right to tear her down, NO ONE!!!!

Oh, that’s funny because I can imagine a world without Selena Gomez’s music and it’s less annoying. Hollywood doesn’t care about her talent. They just want to cash in on another disney channel starlet while she’s still young and wholesome. She brings out the best in people? Her songs are cookie cutter and girls are more interested in what she’s wearing and who she’s sucking face with. And just because people criticize her doesn’t mean they’re hating. Not every celebrity can be a triple threat. Get over yourself.

You cross me as being a hateful & hurtful person. You say that I need to get over myself, why? It’s illogical for you to attack who you don’t know. And for all I know you could be a good person with a bad attitude.

She should really quit both altogether, but I’ll be glad to see the day when she quits releasing her crappy, auto-tuned albums. If she wants to be grown-up & taken seriously, she probably shouldn’t act in stupid Disney & kid movies.

You haven’t heard any of her songs? Yeah, that’s probably why you say that crap.
I love her songs, but I think she needs to focus on acting better than singing, singers that act don’t get taken seriously in the acting industry.
Love her though! Screw the ego filled boyfriend she has & his little pathetic fans. COME AT ME BROOOOOOO!
