Fri, August 2, 2013 12:00pm EST by 4 Comments

Everyone in Hollywood needs a person who understands the highs and lows of fame and can give them advice about it! And it looks like Carly Rose has found that person in none other than Selena!

Carly Rose Sonenclar stole everyone’s hearts on the second season of The X Factor. Her voice is absolutely incredible for a 14-year-old girl, and we know she a long future ahead in music. She sat down with EXCLUSIVELY and revealed that she chatted with Selena Gomez about being famous — and how they bonded over their awkwardness!

Carly Rose’s Chat With Selena

The X Factor finalist and the “Come & Get It” songstress met up for dinner in April at Catch restaurant in New York City. When we spoke with Carly Rose EXCLUSIVELY on Aug. 1, she told us all about her hang out with Selena. Selena had advice for the burgeoning star, who looks to Selena as a “huge inspiration.” So sweet!

She was so sweet and we just talked about her life. Like, just walking down the street, being Selena Gomez, and what that’s like. I asked her, ‘Can you not even walk around?” and she said, ‘No, you can walk around without being recognized and stuff. You just kind of have to do the right things.’ We kind of bonded over that we’re both really awkward in interviews. She said, ‘I have no idea what to do.’

Selena is the absolute sweetest. She has been exactly where Carly Rose is, so to see her offering advice is just the coolest.

Carly Rose Following In Selena’s Footsteps

Before she became an amazing singer, Carly Rose started out in acting. For now, she is dedicating herself to her debut album, but she looks up to Selena and her ability to do both acting and music.

That’s another way I look up to her. I want to do both also. She’s doing both and managing to have the number one album right now and doing a movie.

There’s no doubt that Carly has a great career ahead of her. Seriously, have you seen her “Somewhere Over Rainbow” performance on The X Factor? This girl has unbelievable pipes. And with advice from Selena, she’ll handle fame just fine!

So HollywoodLifers, what do YOU think of Selena’s advice on fame to Carly Rose? Let us know what you think!

yeah, Carly is sensitive and she reads that stuff and there was one day the Fifth Harmony fans were really making fun of her and it made her cry. All I could think was how mean teeneagers are today. I guess celebrities, no matter how young, are still bullied.

A 14 year old girl who dedicates her time to children’s hospitals and charities getting bullied by teen fans. No wonder she’s hardly on twitter. If you meet Carly, she’s so nice and is a sweetheart. she never says anything mean or bad about anyone. All the people who know her personally say she’s a shy, quiet person.

Carly Rose is really talented. She’s pretty and she may be a sweeheart, but someone needs to tell her to change the way she smiles because teens on twitter have been relentless making fun of the way she smiles. it happens when she smiles like Elvis presley with her lip turned up on one side, that’s when they say her smile is fake. They are so mean they say it looks like she’s in pain or constipated when she smiles. A lot of people in the 5H fandom show up at her events and concerts to take a picture with her just so they can show everyone how she smiled. Plus other people have been taking her pics off google and making it their icon just to make fun. it’s usually that picture of her with headphones on.

Carly is 14. of course she’s awkward. everyone is awkward at that age. In 2 or 3 years, that will go away because by then she’ll know how to interact with fans and do interviews. She’ll know how to smile in pictures with fans too. I think it just takes getting used to. That Camilla girl from Fifth Harmoney is also very awkward and she’s like 17 or 18 years old. They are new to fame so it just takes time to get used to cameras and interviews.
