Selena Gomez May Be Taking Miley Cyrus’ Spotlight on Disney?

29 Apr

Is the onscreen competition between Miley Cyrus and fellow tween Disney sensation Selena Gomez about to get real?

I’m told Disney executives are so worried about Cyrus’ recent controversies that, more than ever, they want to make Gomez an even bigger star.

The 15-year-old Gomez now stars in the Disney Channel hit Wizards of Waverly Place, but last year she appeared on two episodes of Hannah Montana as Mikayla, one of Hannah’s pop star rivals.

Selena sings and acts and is really young,” a source reports. “She is going to be the next Miley Cyrus. [Disney executives] really want this.”

Next up for Gomez is the Warner Bros. movie Another Cinderella Story, scheduled for a fall release. No surprise, but I’ve just learned that Gomez has recorded several new songs for the flick.

The studio has high hopes for this,” says my source.

But a Disney rep insists there are no plans to try and replace Cyrus in any way with Gomez.

We are fortunate to work with a host of young actors and actresses who are each unique and making their own trajectory based on their talent,” the rep said via email this morning. “However, Wizards of Waverly Place is a bona fide hit with kids and families, and licensees and retailers are indeed interested in the series. As for Selena, she deserves all the success that’s coming her way.”

Note to Gomez: If Vanity Fair comes calling, wait a few years before calling them back.

  4. b April 30, 2008 at 2:49 am #

    i think she will be big. shes already doing 2 movies, a show, and a album and probably much more. i like her way more than miley. but thats just my opinion.

  5. Lara April 30, 2008 at 2:55 am #

    I think Miley has just became outragous with the whole nude photo thing.I wouldn’t blame disney for liking Selena Gomez more,i haven’t seen or heard any of Selenas stuff but shes probobaly a better influence on kids than hannah montana.

  6. Lenae April 30, 2008 at 3:12 am #

    nope i dont think so. I dont think any1 can take miley place. I dont think any1 could take selenas place either …….waverly place that is.lol but seriously there both different. Mileys outgoing and crazy and selena is sweet and a big dork!lol

  16. Dude May 1, 2008 at 12:59 am #

    manni, she’s had more than 2 chances

  17. hollzzzzzzzzz May 1, 2008 at 1:34 am #

    i love miley’s music, but i love selenas acting and overall look. I think demi lovato will do better than both though.

  18. b May 1, 2008 at 2:50 am #

    selena and demi are both realy good and miley is old news

  19. BESSERWISSERIN May 1, 2008 at 8:24 am #

    come on miley is a teenstar and she noe it so why she get pics like this?!

  20. veroonica May 1, 2008 at 12:34 pm #

    Give miley a second chance anyways selana lipsing’s miley’s a teen have u ever been a teen i don’t think so because u would know how hard it is to be a teenpop star and to be just a teen i mean the person made miley do the pic and it would be artictic and fun her dad wasnt there what could she do shes just a teenI HATE SELANA

  21. big fan of both of U May 1, 2008 at 5:57 pm #

    Look Miley u should stop being like this with all the picture’s but u know what your a great star! Good luck Selena your both gerat

  22. amrgirl May 1, 2008 at 9:49 pm #

    No they should not because it was just a photo with a towel over her !!!!!!!!!!!!! If they do i am not watching disney channel

  23. lola May 2, 2008 at 1:25 am #

    Even though i like miley this is her falut and it was wrong. But still i don’t think selena is going to make the show good. Hannah Montana is going to go right down the drain.

  24. Dude May 2, 2008 at 3:48 am #

    veroonica, miley lip syncs

  25. Selena Gozmes Rockz May 2, 2008 at 12:18 pm #

    go selena you rock miely is a bitch

  26. Balsam May 2, 2008 at 12:21 pm #

    they are both different and both good. I dont see the big deal about the Vanity Fair picture, its not as bad as people think. They make it seem bad because its Miley Cyrus.

  27. mileys biggest fan_ naomi x May 2, 2008 at 3:55 pm #

    GUESS WHAT?!
    i found miley cyrus’ REAL bebo!!! i know there ALOT of fakes but trust me. . . this one isn’t! and i can tell because as a fan i analysed it and now i know its real!!

  28. Kayla May 2, 2008 at 8:50 pm #

    We don’t care if you watch Disney or not you the one missing out!
    Go Selena!

  29. MILEY ROCKS! May 3, 2008 at 3:48 am #

    i really doubt miley is going to quit disney and selena.. yah like she is gonna become bigger than miley.. yah right..
    i really dont like selena..
    adn you know miley did make bad mistakes.. but you guys its only a mistake and EVERYONE does.. shes just like the rest of us.. shes a normal girl living her dream.. just cut her some slack.. im sure once selena is getting like more into becoming famous and stuff she will make bad mistakes then people will start saying mean things about her like they say about miley.. like i said.. shes just like us. and its just a mistake everyone makes them
    i am a true fan of miley cyrus and i accept her apolagie abuot the pictures.. i really hope you other fans do to.. beacuse shes really sorry.. and once more.. its only a mistake..

      i think selena is better bitches

  30. hoe-la May 3, 2008 at 3:59 am #

    i like selena better. nd miley has a shiny face… you can see her acne. OOO! if she wants to make a comeback she can do a proactive commercial! lol

  31. Tumble Dryer May 3, 2008 at 4:59 pm #

    Firstly…Dude you speak sense my friend
    Secondly…Veroonica you are a damn fool. Miley lip sings all the time. She practically admitted it on Oprah when she was like “When I forget the words I just say “Pink elephant”.
    I am sure if she says that fans would hear but they don’t thus proving the lip singing.
    And Thirdly…Also Miley’s dad was there and they even looked at the pictures before they were done and the photographer didn’t force her to do the photo. Do you see hands pulling Miley down? NO!

    I bet if Selena did this then you would be going “This is wrong she’s supposed to be a role model…etc.”

  32. Tumble Dryer May 3, 2008 at 5:10 pm #

    Y’all are like “All teens make mistakes”.
    Are you kidding me? How can you explain these photos innocently?

    About green bra photo
    “Erm I was getting changed when I saw something on my lime green bra and wanted to pick it off and then when I looked up someone with a camera was there and I happened to be looking right into the lense.”

    About One with boy on bed
    “I was just lying on my bed exposing my midriff while wearing a full length top, when a guy friend came in and was tired so decided to lie down too then noticed I had some belly button fluff so was picking it out when the same pesky photographer came in and took a picture of us when I happened to look up.”

    Vanity fair
    Well I’d just finished taking a shower when I noticed that pesky photographer running away with my top. So me being clever I picked up a bed sheet in an attempt to cover myself up when a different famous photographer asked if they could take a portrait. Of course I said no but that didn’t stop them and they took the pictures anyway. Next thing I knew I heard they would be in ‘Vanity Fair’! I was mortified!”

    Please, get real. No one makes mistakes like that. She planned all of this and doesn’t properly want to admit to it. Her only regret is that they weren’t more raunchy.

  33. me May 3, 2008 at 7:28 pm #

    Omg, all of you who think miley is better tan selena gomez are losers. Seriously, miley has taken inappropriate pics and is ugly and selena is way more talented than miley will ever be. Personally I hope selena goes big, bigger than miley. Oh and it’s not that they put ugly pics of miley up there it’s just that she’s just plain ugly no matter how she’s dressed. Selena is prettier and more talented.and yes, teens do make mistakes but no those kind of mistakes. Even if you’re a teen you need to know the right place and time for those type of things miley keeps exposing. If you still think miley should be given another chance you have to be losing your mind.

  34. Dude May 3, 2008 at 7:30 pm #

    who cares if you’re a stalker

  35. Still me May 3, 2008 at 7:43 pm #

    And about EVERYBODY making those mistakes is a complete lie. You won’t see me making those mistakes and I can’t understand why either, I mean if she’s famous and all why take those pics? And if she were really sorry she’d never have done it. What a slut.

  36. Mya May 3, 2008 at 10:06 pm #

    I LOVE SELENA GOMEZ!
    shes way better than miley
    way prettier
    selena can act better
    and overall is better than miley cyrus

  37. MiZZ TiZZ May 3, 2008 at 10:27 pm #

    I think that Selena is really a good singer and actress, she can be the new first DC’s girl.

  38. meadow May 3, 2008 at 11:27 pm #

    Miley has been doing some bad things. Selena is a much better actress. I’m not so sure but I heard Selena Gomez was on the Barney Show. IDK though. Miley for instance took that photo {probley got the idea from Vanessa Hudges} Pics on the internet, and in the New PEOPLE magazine she was wereing high heels and a short dress. She was my Idil

    Dear mileys biggest fan_ naomi x,
    There is such a thing as freedom of speech so I shall make my comments as long as I want.
    You should mind your business about what I write then if you don’t want to read it.
    I’m not exactly going to cry myself to sleep tonight just because you won’t read my comment
    Even if you don’t read this I will survive.

    miley is still a slag and people who look up to her are slags in the making.

    [Note: She doesn’t have a capital as I have no respect for her. I will put one for Selena because I respect how she isn’t involed in any scandals]

    Yeah what a whopper of a comment.

  48. Wouldn't you like to know? June 8, 2008 at 3:38 am #

    I totally agree with Tumble Dryer.

    No one does make mistakes like that. And she should be learning from her mistakes, not freaking multiplying them.

    She’s a total phony. Especially after where I read her and freaking Mandy were making fun of Selena and Demi. They obviously need a life.

    Go Gomez!
    Some of us believe you won’t turn out to be a fluke.

  49. brooke June 24, 2008 at 2:25 pm #

    i like selena gomez better than miley cyrus because she is not taking advantige of nick jonas yes they might hang out yes they might talk but if she went out with nck jonas then she is either with another girls double dating with the other jonases un like miley cyrus she goes out by herself with nick thats why most of us in this blogging area does not like her
    because she makees other people feel bad that she got miley and you didnt.
