Who is Selena Gomez?

Selena Gomez is a well-known name. If you have seen the American fantasy teen sitcom, Wizards of Waverly Place, you’d know that Selena Gomez is the actress who starred as Alex Russo. Also, Selena is a pop vocalist. Apart from her success in the film industry, her fame was further magnified by her pop hit songs, “Come & Get It” and "Same Old Love". Interestingly, there’s more to learn about the movie and pop star.

Early Life

Born on July 22, 1992, Selena Gomez was raised in Texas. She began her career as an actress, appearing on Barney and Friends, a children’s television series aired from 2002 to 2004.  Since then, she had featured in different hit series, including Hannah Montana (2007) and Wizards of Waverly Place (2007-2012). 
Selena had her start with music after recording songs for her Disney projects. She made The Wizards of Waverly Place’s theme song and recorded several of the show’s soundtracks.

Relationship with Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber, a pop star from Canada, and Selena Gomez's relationship as a couple first became public knowledge at the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party in 2011. From 2010 to 2013, Bieber and Selena dated on and off due to hops and downs in their relationship. They, however, made the news in 2017 when it was revealed in November same year that their relationship had been restored.
In mid-march 2018, it was reported that Selena and Bieber had put their romance on hold. Speculations had it that Selena’s mother influenced the star’s decision to quit the relationship.
In 2018, Justin Bieber got back together with a past lover, Hailey Baldwin, who is a model and media personality. Both later got married in October 2019.

Charity Work

Outside acting and singing, Selena Gomez is known for her philanthropic work.  In 2009, Selena became a goodwill ambassador for UNICEF in the United States. For her, this means participating in campaigns, events, and initiatives on behalf of UNICEF USA. Her first official trip was to Ghana, a country in West Africa.
Selena is also a member of Ryan Seacrest Foundation, a not-for-profit organization that focuses on using entertainment and educational based initiatives to care for youths. Selena Gomez also organizes charity concert almost every year.

Selena Gomez Health Crisis

In 2015, Selena revealed that she had been diagnosed with lupus, an autoimmune disease that usually affects the kidneys, skin, and joints. She had to cancel some of her 2016 tours due to anxiety and depression arising from complications from her lupus. 
Finally, she revealed in an Instagram post in September 2017 that she had to seek kidney transplant surgery, indicating that the kidney was donated by her good friend, actress Francia Raisa.

Is Selena Gomez Married?

After her relationship with Justin Bieber went south, there isn’t any proof that Selena is committed to anyone or planning to get married, though she has been spotted several times being together with potential lovers.
In 2019 during the Cannes film festival, she posted a photo of herself with a hilarious caption suggesting her getting married to legendary Hollywood actor Bill Murray. But that sounds like and must be a joke. Perhaps that can be seen as a clever marketing ploy devised for their film, The Dead Don’t Die.
