Selena Gomez to Surprise Fans with 'Raw' Role in 'Spring Breakers' - Sawf News

April 30, 2012, (Sawf News) - Selena Gomez will break out of her Disney girl role model image in her upcoming film 'Spring Breakers' and surprise her fans playing a character who is real and raw.

The film directed by Harmony Korine (famous for his timeless 90's movie "Kids"), is about three college girls (played by Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Benson) who finance their spring break vacation by ripping off a restaurant, only to end up behind bars. They then get involved with the person who posts their bail, an arms and drug runner (James Franco).

"It's really fun. It's completely different than anything I've done before," says Selena. [via MTV]

"People are going to be a little surprised, I think, by the choice. But it's such a good movie. It's real. It's raw. It's about actual spring break and it's just, they kind of take it to a whole other level."

Selena, who has taken time off from her singing career to focus on films this year, is thrilled to have worked with Korine, since the director has a way of extracting good performances from his actors.

"He just really allowed us to push ourselves, which was nice. He never said we did anything wrong. He just said it was a choice. He gave us these locations and just said, 'Act like you're on spring break.' "

Selena Gomez new fragrance ad shows her sultry, untamed side - Examiner.com

An ad featuring a new fragrance by Selena Gomez is, well...hot. The Spring Breakers star, with a loyal Twitter following, shows fans her sexy and sultry side. Heck, her boyfriend Justin Bieber hit big with his Someday cologne. It's time SelGo returned the favor.

She is no longer the sharp-tongued Wizards of Waverly Place star. The 19-year-old is a woman, and her new ad promoting her namesake perfume is proof. 

After tearing up the charts like her boyfriend Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez joined him and BFF, Taylor Swift in introducing her own trademark scent. And to show her fans love, she took to Twitter and asked Selenators for their support in naming the scents. 

In the new ad (shown here), Selena Gomez says the fragrance is one thing, but the bottle represents her on the red carpet. It shows a side of her that signals her growth from girl to cougar, citing a 4/30/12 Inquisitr report. After all, Justin Bieber is one year younger than his gal pal.

"I wanted it to be tall so it stands out. The design of the bottle is almost like a gown so it represents me on the carpet. The lips are fun… it makes it more youthful and you can play with it." ~ Selena Gomez on her new self-titled fragrance.

While she may not be rolling the dice any time soon on The Strip in Las Vegas, one thing is for sure: Selena Gomez's new fragrance ad is sizzling. 

If you're in Clark County, you can pick up a bottle of the new fragrance in May at Macy's in the Fashion Show Mall. Depending on the size, it retails between $35 and $55.

Selena Gomez Unveils Sultry Underwater Perfume Ad - Billboard

Former Disney star Selena Gomez shows that she is all grown-up in her sexy new fragrance ad, which features the singer posing in a pool of water, dripping wet, clad in a strapless, billowing purple gown. The sultry look continues with the brunette beauty's slick hair and smoky purple eye shadow.

"I describe it as yummy. It's romantic. It's not over-bearing. Simple!" Gomez said, describing her self-titled fragrance to MyStyle. "My mom legitimately likes it. She's so honest with me, she'll tell me that she doesn't like my clothes or the dress I wore, but she wears this everyday. So, I wanted to make sure that it was something that could appease everybody, which is why there's not a picture of me on the box. I wanted it to be about the fragrance."

The bottle, designed to look like Selena on the red carpet, is also sleek and sexy, topped off with gold and purple lips. Last month (April 11), the 19-year-old star tweeted about the bottle and her new perfume. "Ahhh it's so purrty.. So excited, nervous and hyper," she wrote.

Gomez's perfume will be available in May exclusively at Macy's, and will debut later in summer at Nordstrom, Dillard's and Ulta.

Selena Gomez Takes On 'Raw' Role In 'Spring Breakers' - MTV.com

Despite its sunny title, it seems that Selena Gomez's next film is going to be anything but a joyful romp.

With "Kids" director Harmony Korine at the directing wheel, "Spring Breakers" will take a turn for the dark and unwieldy. Which is fine for 19-year-old Gomez, whose film docket is quickly getting filled up with films that could make Disney execs blush.

The flick follows a group of college girls (played by Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens and "Pretty Little Liars" star Ashley Benson) who rob a restaurant to pay for their spring break. After landing in jail, they quickly become entangled with a drug and arms dealer who bails them out. James Franco stars in the film as the corn row-wearing bad guy.

"It's really fun. It's completely different than anything I've done before," she added. "People are going to be a little surprised, I think, by the choice. But it's such a good movie. It's real. It's raw. It's about actual spring break and it's just, they kind of take it to a whole other level." She gushed about the chance to work with Korine, who she said took her acting to a new level. "It's great. The freedom we had, I mean Harmony, the director, was so flexible with us," she explained. "He just really allowed us to push ourselves, which was nice. He never said we did anything wrong. He just said it was a choice. He gave us these locations and just said, 'Act like you're on spring break.' "

In addition to "Spring Breakers," Gomez is also attached to a thriller with Ethan Hawke, "The Getaway," as well as Eli Roth's next flick, "Aftershock."

Selena Gomez Says Her New Fragrance is "Yummy" - Cambio

Selena Gomez's new fragrance is turning heads, both for her sexy new ad and the bottle itself.

She tells Us Weekly that the perfume ad image, of Sel waist-deep in an aquarium tank wearing a purple dress is "simple and pretty."

Can't argue with her there. Selena looks gorgeous (albeit wet) with her hair slicked back and her dress swirling underwater.

The bottle, which sprouts lips from the cap, is a combination of playful and dramatic, as Selena explains, "I wanted it to be tall so it stands out. The design of the bottle is almost like a gown so it represents me on the carpet. The lips are fun... it makes it more youthful and you can play with it."

What's cool about Selena's new fragrance is that she got her fans to help design the scent through online voting, with some lucky fans getting to sniff it out in person.

The winning scent is a combination of raspberry, purple freesia and vanilla.

Overall, Selena describes the combination as "yummy."

Sel tells Us Weekly, "They're the ones wearing it, so I trust them--their opinions and everything that they've done for me."

Look for the Selena Gomez fragrance at Macy's beginning in May for $35, $45 and $55, and starting in August, the perfume will be sold at Nordstrom, Dillard's, Ulta, Bonton and SSI.

As for boyfriend Justin Bieber's opinion of her new scent, Sel says "He likes it a lot."

Selena Gomez Gets Stomped by Fashion Police - Gather.com

Selena Gomez was the subject of the Fashion Police, but it wasn't about the dress she was wearing when spotted by the spies who work for this sartorially selective television program.

In fact, the article of debate was a pair of boots that this pretty young artist was rocking.

That's right!

The E! Entertainment show that picks which celebrities look good and which ones do not in their outfits of choice discussed Justin Bieber's girlfriend's feetâ€"or at least what was on them when she was performing in Los Angeles.

The boots in question, which came to just below the knee and which looked a bit like lace, were very sexy and, of course, were made by Christian Louboutin. Selena's toes were popping out the front of the footwear, making them even more exciting than most subjects in this shoe category.

While everyone agreed that these boots were amazing on Selena Gomez, one of the arbiters on the panel did say that the boots in question can be hard to wear.

George Kotsiopoulos commented that Gomez did a good job while she donned them, pairing the Louboutins with a loose dress to show off the footwear to their full advance. He also added that Selena "dressed really well."

Kelly Osbourne agreed, possibly with a little shoe envy since this fashion plate loves certain specimens that are made for walking (or posing).

That said, Selena Gomez was a definite style leader when she got stomped on by the Fashion Police this weekend. No doubt if Justin Bieber was there he, too, would be talking Selena up just like the E! Entertainment crew did because that's the kind of boyfriend this singing sensation is. But Gomez didn't need any help just then, doing fine on her, uh, own two feet.

Selena Gomez & The Scene Named in $1 Million Lawsuit - Fox News

Selena Gomez and her band, The Scene, might be in court very soon.

The pop singing sensation and her band have been named in a $1 million lawsuit, entertainment site GossipCop.com is reporting.

The suit alleges that SelGo’s 2010 hit “A Year Without Rain,” which she also recorded in Spanish, was ripped off from a 2005 tune called "Buy a Dog," by a band called Luce.

The songwritersâ€"Tom Luce, Brian Kroll, Matt Blackett and Lawrence Riggsâ€" say Gomez and The Scene used part of their song for the chorus of “A Year Without Rain.”

GossipCop.com quotes Luce stating that “the melodies in the chorus of both songs are virtually identical,” and that back in 2005 “Buy a Dog” received tons of airplay on Sirius/XM radio and other stations.

Luce claims that what Gomez, The Scene and the writers of  “A Year Without Rain” have done amounts to an infringement of copyright.   

SelGo and The Scene also made headline this week after performing their new single “Hit the Lights” on Dancing With the Stars.

With her long straight hair draping down her shoulders, Gomez donned a sparkly black and bronze tutu-style dress.

As Gomez sashayed from side to side while performing on stage, several dancers appeared in an upbeat routine in sync with SelGo’s lyrics.

The music group Train also took the stage, singing their hit “Drive By.” But it was famous percussionist Sheila E. who got everyone on their feet, shaking what their momma gave them.

Looking sexy in a tight bright pink ensemble, Sheila E. came on stage pounding a Conga drum and transformed the stage into a Brazilian-like carnival.

(CNN) -

Beloved deceased singer Selena isn't being resurrected as a hologram, as we'd hoped, but fans can hear her sing again - and she's doing it with another popular Selena: the teen star Selena Gomez.

Chart-topping Latin songstress Selena died tragically in 1995 when Gomez was a mere toddler. Now 19, Gomez has recorded a "duet" with the late Selena on the tribute album "Enamorada De Ti," and Selena's brother A.B. is singing Gomez's praises.

"She did an amazing job," he told E! of Gomez's work on the record, adding that Gomez "was named after my sister. That's pretty awesome."

She did such a great job that A.B. is hoping to work with the young actress/singer again soon, and it sounds like Gomez would be up for it: She told Just Jared Jr. that she had a great time working on the duet.

"I was completely honored when they asked me to be on the tribute CD, and when I went into the studio to record, they actually had her vocals ... so I felt like she was singing right next to me," Gomez recalled. "It gave me chills! It was incredible."

Snooki "Never Dissed Jessica Simpson" or Her "Hot Ass Bump" - E! Online

Is pregnancy making Snooki snarky?

According to Us Weekly, the Jersey Shore starlet and mom-to-be recently slammed Jessica Simpson's pregnancy weight gain. Snooki, 24, allegedly told reporters she "would die if she were her size" and said that while Simpson "[indulges] in everything she [wants]," she's making a point to eat healthily.

But Snooki's no J.Simp hater. She took to Twitter to set the record straight…

WATCH: Jessica Simpson's Baby Shower Video

"I NEVER dissed Jessica Simpson you weirdo tabloids, get over it with your 'pregnant war' articles," she wrote. "I love the girl and her hot ass bump."

Simpson, 31, couldn't be more confident about her prebaby body. She joked to Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS-FM radio show that pregnancy makes her "unstoppable in the bedroom" and her fiancé, Eric Johnson, is "always ready."

She also, of course, posed nude on the cover of Elle magazine, showcasing her baby bump Demi Moore style.  Somehow we don't think Snooki's snubâ€"or lack thereofâ€"will put a damper on Simpson's pregnancy glow.

Selena Gomez Ad Featuring Wet, Sexy Young Actress Turns Heads - The Inquisitr

selena gomez ad 2012

A new, sexy Selena Gomez ad featuring a soaking-wet Wizards of Waverly Place star has launched ahead of the release of a new fragrance bearing the Disney starlet’s name.

The Selena Gomez ad is almost (almost) innocent, when contrasted with some of the post-Disney careers of her forebears, but it still features the WoWP star and girlfriend of teen queen Justin Bieber in a soaking wet dress and is a bit… sultrier than what we’re used to.

Selena Gomez’s ad was released on the eve of the launch of her new fragrance- called simply, “Selena Gomez”- at retailer Macy’s. In the ad, Gomez floats in a tank amid a sea of purple light and makeup, along with her lip-bedecked purple bottle of perfume.

The fragrance itself represents Selena Gomez’s first foray into grown-up fashion- the Disney star explains that the vibe she was going for was “simple and pretty,” and she said in a recent interview:

“I describe it as yummy. It’s romantic. It’s not over-bearing. Simple! My mom legitimately likes it. She’s so honest with me, she’ll tell me that she doesn’t like my clothes or the dress I wore, but she wears this everyday. So, I wanted to make sure that it was something that could appease everybody, which is why there’s not a picture of me on the box. I wanted it to be about the fragrance.”

Gomez says that the bottle is meant to evoke the feel of a starlet on the red carpet:

“The bottle was really the hardest part, because I wanted it to be tall. I like the fact that it stands out, because I always go to the ones that are tallest in the morning. The design of the bottle is almost like a gown, so it represents me on the red carpet. The lips are fun! It makes it more youthful, and you can play with it. I get bored and play with things, so I think it’s perfect.”

The perfume featured in the Selena Gomez ad goes exclusively to Macy’s (where it will retail for 35, $45 and $55, depending on size), and in late summer, the fragrance hits Nordstrom, Dillard’s and Ulta.

The Canadian heartthrob also spoke about the inspiration behind Believe.

He said: 'I wanted to be able to write about things in my life and not be afraid of things that have actually happened. And I wanted to talk about rumours and address things that I haven't been able to talk about before.

'I really wanted to show people on this album that this is me and this is really organic and I'm really talking about things that are going on in my life.'

According to Justin, 'a good boyfriend is someone who can just be sweet to a girl, always do random things, nice gestures, and be honest and not cheat on one another'. Cute.

Last week Justin teamed up with his mentor Usher and Kayne West to put the finishing touches on Believe, which is due to hit shelves in June.

Justin Bieber on Proposing Selena; - IndiaGlitz

Justin Bieber and girlfriend Selena Gomez have been in a relationship for over a year now and although he has no plans to wed, he hasn't ruled out wedding bells sometime in the future.

When asked about proposing to Selena, Justin told French newspaper Le Parisien in London:

" No, I am too young.

"One day, I will get engaged, when I have found the right person in five or 10 years. It doesn't mean that Selena is not the right person though, she is going to kill me if I say that!"

Justin is regularly hitting the headlines with Selly, whether it be their constant public display of affection or random speculation, he just seems to brush off all of this though, as he knows that it's all part of the job...

""Yes, it is not easy to be so young and to have a relationship with someone that doesn't stay private. "But well, I am a public personality, it is what I wanted, so I have to deal with it.":

Recently Justin - Gomez fans were excited to see the pictures like Justin Bieber gets a surprise visit from girlfriend Selena Gomez while filming his new music video in Downtown, Los Angeles, California on April 21, 2012.

Selena Gomez Mad at Justin Bieber Kissing Her Look-Alike? New Pic Says Yes - Gather Celebs News Channel

Remember when Justin Bieber was snapped kissing a Selena Gomez look-alike on the set of his Boyfriend music video? And then the real Gomez showed up on the set. Oops. Several fan sites wondered if the Who Says? singer might have felt a twinge of jealousy seeing her Never Say Never man lip-locking a strange girl who looked a lot like her. But those rumors were quickly dispelled by the heart-felt and camera-ready PDA exhibited by Selena and the Biebs after the shoot ended. If Selena was upset, she sure didn't act like it. Of course, she is an actress after all, and she's been one since the tender age of 9. Could it be that, on the inside, she was seething? A recently unearthed photo says "Yes." And so does a JB fan site poll.

A new odd photo of Selena Gomez has just appeared on Justin Bieber fan sites. The photo is shown juxtaposed to a still photo of Biebs enthusiastically making out with the Selena clone. The weird photo was reportedly snapped as the real Selena Gomez was getting out of her car on her surprise visit to her Boyfriend's music video shoot. Awkward? Well, La Gomez does not look happy. In fact, she looks mad as hell.

If Selena was indeed as angry as her shocked and scowling countenance in the photo suggests, she quickly recovered her composure. A pic snapped minutes later showed her greeting Justin by leaping into his arms and straddling him for a kiss-fest of her own. Could that enthusiastic greeting have been a jealous reaction to the scene she'd just witnessed? Was it her way of saying to the Selena clone, "Back off. He's mine?" Possibly.

A Justin Bieber fan site poll asked the question: "Do you think Selena Jealous?" A 60.29 percent majority voted "Yes! Of course!" Only 39.71 percent responded "No, she knows it's just an act."

So there you have it. You can see both pics by clicking here.

Zing! Robin Williams Chimes in on Britney Spears' Conservatorship - E! Online

Robin Williams, Britney Spears Kevin Mazur/WireImage

Robin Williams ain't gonna be hunting for goodwill from Britney Spears anytime soon.

We caught up with the legendary funnyman at the Comedy Awards on Saturday in New York City and noticed that the Oscar winner seems to have a matrimonial streak running through his life at the moment: He recently got hitched to graphic designer Susan Schneider, and he's currently set to star in the ensemble comedy The Big Wedding, about a divorced couple pretending to be married en route to their son's wedding day.

Natch, this prompted us to pose a pop quiz to the quick-witted comedian about the biggest spouse-themed, hot-button topic currently boggling all of pop culture: that Britney Spears' fiancé, Jason Trawick, was recently named her co-conservator.

Is this the matrimonial wave of the future? Or a sign of the apocalypse?

MORE: Jason Trawick Not Just Britney Spears' Fiancéâ€"Now He's Co-Conservator!

"One of the signs of the apocalypse," he cracked to us. "And I think she's on the calendar of 'Girls of the Apocalypse.'"

Eeep. Looks like that Sports Illustrated swimsuit calendar on our wall now has some competition!

Spears, of course, will now fall under the care of Trawick, whoâ€"per judge's ordersâ€"will be in charge of overseeing his fiancée's personal, day-to-day affairs. Her father, Jamie Spears, and attorney Andrew Wallett will continue to manage the 30-year-old pop star's finances, including control of her estate.

"That's kind of a double bill," Williams says of Trawick's appointment. "It's like having your dealer as your therapist."

Ka-pow! Ever doubt that Williams serves up some of the tastiest bons mots around?

MORE: No Foolingâ€"Robin Williams Is Remarried!

Spears chatter notwithstanding, Williams was also happy to tell us which of his past movies he'd love to revisit for a sequel. And, curiously, it also involves an element of marriage.

"The Birdcage would be wonderful," he revealed. "I'd love to do that againâ€"it'd be great. It's just a question of finding the right way. Especially now, with the whole issue around gay marriage."

Quite the timely hook, then?

"Just a touch, yeah," he said. "So maybe we'll have to see if they can write it."

Hey, anything that reteams Williams with Nathan Lane, we're so there. Maybe there'll be room on the soundtrack for a ditty...from Spears?

Beyoncé Calls Fake Pregnancy Rumors "Crazy" - E! Online

Blue Ivy Carter, Beyonce, Jay-zBeyonceOnline.com

After months of rumors, Beyoncé is speaking out against claims that she was faking her pregnancy.

"That was crazy," the 30-year-old mom told People of rumors that a surrogate was carrying her and Jay-Z's first child together. "It wasn't hurtful, it was just crazy. [I thought] ‘Where did they come up with this?'"

Also "crazy," Beyoncé said, was the whole prosthetic bump rumor, which spun out of control after the singer/actress was interviewed on an Australian TV show, and her baby bump appeared to deflate when she sat down.

"It was a fabric that foldedâ€"does fabric not fold?," Beyoncé shot back. "Oh my gosh, so stupid."

And Beyoncé and Jay-Z weren't the only ones miffed by the rumors.

While her little sis Solange was vocal about the "ignorance" on Twitter, tales of surrogacy secrets also upset The "Love on Top" crooner's mom, Tina Knowles.

"I thought it was very unfair and very cruel that someone would think that someone would be that diabolical to keep up a charade like that for nine months," Tina said. "As a mother it was painful for me to hear the crazy rumors. And I even had people ask me, which was so ridiculous."

In spite of all the "stupid rumors," however, Beyoncé said "love and well wishes" from fans all over the world helped her get over it.

 Meanwhile, the singer is crazy in love with her 3-month old daughter, Blue Ivy.

 "I feel more beautiful than I've ever felt because I've given birth," Beyoncé told the mag. "I have never felt so connected, never felt like I had such a purpose on this earth."

In spite of all the "stupid rumors," however, Beyoncé said "love and well wishes" from fans all over the world helped her get over it.

 Meanwhile, the singer is crazy in love with her 3-month old daughter, Blue Ivy.

 "I feel more beautiful than I've ever felt because I've given birth," Beyoncé told the mag. "I have never felt so connected, never felt like I had such a purpose on this earth."

The Five-Year Engagement Flops?! - E! Online

On second thought, maybe it's a good thing The Avengers hasn't opened here yet.

If it had, a batch of new movies, including Jason Segel and Emily Blunt's The Five-Year Engagement, would've been buried worse than they were at the box office.

The surprise romantic-comedy hit Think Like a Man was a surprise No. 1 for a second weekend.

The Five-Year Engagement, pegged by some to rule the rankings, managed only a fifth-place debut.

The Jason Stratham action movie Safe and the costume-drama thriller The Raven fared even worse.

The animated The Pirates! Band of Misfits bowed in second place, but really wasn't any bigger than those other films. For all its theaters, 3-D ticket prices and family-friendly selling points, it only grossed $11.4 million.  

With a $11.2 million start, The Five Year-Engagement failed to meet expectations, and was more Drillbit Taylor than Forgetting Sarah Marshall. All three comedies were produced by Judd Apatow; Five-Year Engagement and Sarah Marshall starred Segel.

If there's one box-office bright spot for Five-Year Engagement, it's this: The comedy probably will be saved from flop status by its non-pricey budget of only about $30 million.

Among the holdovers, Think Like a Man upped its overall domestic take to $60.9 million, while the six-week-old The Hunger Games continued to show staying power.

21 Jump Street dropped out of the Top 10 after a hit domestic run of $132 million.

American Reunion also fell from the standings. It was gassed after a three-week stay, and, worse, with only $53.6 million in the domestic bank to date, it'll become the first American Pie big-screen comedy to fail to top $100 million.

Titanic 3D neared the end of its run, having added another $52.9 million to the 2-D Titanic's soaring domestic total.

In limited release, the Jack Black black comedy Bernie was a big litle hit, averaging a whopping $30,109 at each of its three theaters.

Overall, ticket sales were down one-third from the same weekend last year, Exhibitor Relations reported.

Lucky for Hollywood, The Avengers is (finally) opening here next weekend. Already, the Marvel comics team-up adventure has pulled in more than $175 million overseas.

Here's the complete rundown of the weekend's top movies, per Friday-Sunday domestic estimates as reported by the studios and Exhibitor Relations:

  1. Think Like a Man, $18 million
  2. The Pirates! Band of Misfits, $11.4 million
  3. The Lucky One, $11.3 million
  4. The Hunger Games, $11.3 million
  5. The Five-Year Engagement, $11.2 million
  6. Safe, $7.7 million
  7. The Raven, $7.3 million
  8. Chimpanzee, $6.5 million
  9. The Three Stooges, $5.4 million
  10. The Cabin in the Woods, $4.5 million

Selena Gomez Duets With Selena - PopCrush

Selena Gomez has a surprising new duet partner, and it ain’t her boy Justin Bieber, either. The ‘Hit the Lights’ singer is actually paired up with slain Tejana songbird Selena (Quintanilla Perez) on a new tribute album.

Gomez will sing along to Selena’s hit ‘Bidi Bidi Bom Bom’ on ‘Enamorada De Ti,’ dedicated to the fallen star â€" who, we should add, bears a striking resemblance and even a similar vocal quality to Gomez’s BFF Demi Lovato. Gomez revealed to JustJared (via E! Online) just how excited she was about the project.

“I was completely honored when they asked me to be on the tribute CD and when I went into the studio to record they actually had her vocals in the booth that she was in, so I felt like she was singing right next to me,” she said. “It gave me chills! It was incredible and it was a great experience and it was a great song.”

Selena’s family were equally thrilled with having Gomez on the track. “She did an amazing job,” Selena’s brother, A.B. Quintanilla, told E! News about Gomez at the Billboard Latin Music Awards. “I had the opportunity to talk to her, we did some awards together and I had never met her before in person,” he said, “and I took the opportunity to go say hello to her. And I want to thank her for coming onto the album.” So sweet!

Quintanilla also revealed a little known fact about Ms. Gomez: she was named after the ‘Dreaming of You’ singer! “She was named after my sister. That’s pretty awesome,” Quintanilla said, “Selena with Selena. We want to thank all the Selena Gomez fans that have actually, they’ve been really, really at it just spreading the word. Hard core fans.”
