I really don’t see the talent in Selena. She’s just leeching off of other people’s talent. She doesn’t play an instument, she doesn’t write her own songs. Her award show performances are a balance of autotune and mumbling. Her acousitic performances are just mumbling. Her dancing is basic. I can teach my 9year old cousin to do her “Come and Get It” choreography in half an hour and she can probably do it better than Selena. I don’t want Selena to have no support, that would be sad, but I want her to stop thinking she is sooo better than she actually is. And continue being an actress. She should go back to being a T.V actress, I liked her better that way.

this is what one of the critics said:

“Other than the sultry Stars Dance, much of this sounds like songs Rihanna rejected.”

this is what exactly what was in my mind, well it was true rihanna rejected CAGI.

Selena is very pretty … and she is a good dancer … so, she looks good on stage as a performer. However, It really bothers me to see her trying to lip sync through every performance… I have listened to her new music, and it sounds ok, but it is very auto-tuned. I don’t think she could sing this good live, so she has to lip sync to the music. I think she is definitely a better actress than a singer.

weell the nytimes gave miley her props whilst basically advising selena to GTFO of the way. another reviewer even recommended people listen to DEMI over stars dance eeek. shes bowling the critics over alright. HL really shouldn’t have bothered trying to save SG here. its as if reviewers were sitting around rubbing their hands in anticipation and had a great meal.

#1 on Itunes for only THREE DAYS! They also estimate her sales for the first week to be between 78,000 and 100,000. That is pretty low compared to big hit albums but it will probably be enough to get her #1 on Billboard’s 200 NOT Billboard Hot 100. Hollywood Records pomoted the hell out of Come and Get It, spending high sums on her music video for that single. That proved sucessfull They also knew that that was the only true hit on the album. Selena is NOT a pop princess and never ill be. Her performance on Jay Leno of Slow Down was typical performance for her. It was terrible. Note to Hollywood Records: if you want Slow Down to get up the charts, ban her with all performances of that tune!

Actually her album has gotten pretty bad reviews but this site is obsessed with Selena and trying to make her into a star so they only wrote about the good reviews.

You are so right! Selena Gomez & Justin Bieber are the bread and butter of this website! They want to praise both of them & get as many hits as they can. without them….no interest for readers. Her album has gotten mostly bad reviews, especially from people who know music, like Billboard. Pop Dust pretty much said it correctly, she is what she is, fluff like a cupcake and pretty so her record label promoted the hell outta Come & Get It because they knew it was the only real decent track on the album. Chances are that you proobably will not be hearing much about Bieber from Gomez since she will be on tour soon. Wonder why??????? The promotion is over, she will totally be on her own!

Downloaded her album after her demo audio releases of the album’s debut tracks, and I must say, the album has a very diverse, and solid EDM connection that makes the album a pop wet dream. I think Stars Dance should have came out as her single, it was worthy of it. Save the day, B.E.A.T., Undercover, and Like A Champion are all songs with movement and feel and that’s the point. That is music. Selena manages to always hit the right beat when releasing each album since she works with the right people, and as simple as I say it, the album is worthy of listening to multiple times. That is what makes an album shine, songs worthy of replay. Per fame, say whatever, but the girl is earning what she’s yearning, and that’s debut success.

To Jenny below: that’s what you call PROMOTION and NOT talent! Just wait and see how many hits come from this album. Her young fans might buy it, but not people who know real music. Said it once and will say it again (and not by myself) she should stick to acting..

Not impressed

“Is there anything she can’t do?”
Sing. There are thousands of other musicians out there who are ten times more talented than Selena Gomez yet she is the one who has thousands of adoring fans. The day she learns how to write her own songs or play at least ONE musical instrument I might be impressed.

Shes not singer, she is an actress and of course there are much better singer than her but she only sings because her Selenators want her to. She sings good, but I’m not saying that she is the best. Also she did write some of the songs one of them being Love Will Remember because that was a personal song/thing that she has been through.

The only reaspn why she has adoring fans is because. 1. She dated Justin Bieber. Some of Bieber’s fan hopped over on Selena side because that was Bieber little playdoll, they’re relationship was a huge stepping stone in their career. Further along they may have fallen in love but the ideal purpose was to get each other known. 2. Selena is a Disney. Meaning that the deluded, mindless fans who watched her show when they were little and idolized her as 8/9 year olds, grew up and are now following her as a singer, totally blind to her no talent because they grew up to WOWP. That’s why. Not because she has talent, which she has limited talent.
