Selena Gomez Is Forming A Band! “I’m Not Going To Be A Solo Artist”!

11 Aug

Last week, Selena Gomez assured everyone that there’s no beef between her and Miley Cyrus. Now, she’s sharing some surprises she has in store for her debut album.

The actress/singer is, not surprisingly, “super excited” about starting work on it. But if fans of the 16-year-old, who stars in Wizards of Waverly Place on the Disney Channel, are expecting it to be all about Selena, they’d better think again.

“I’m going to be in a band — no Selena Gomez stuff,” she told MTV News last week. “I’m not going to be a solo artist. I think that I don’t want my name attached to it.”

The star said that the album will have a pop/rock feel to it, and she plans to play instruments on some of the album’s tracks.

“I basically want to make music that is fun and that parents and kids can jump around to and have a good time to,” she said. “I will be singing, and I’m learning drums and playing electric guitar.”

Hopefully she won’t sign with Hollywood Records, because they are very biased when it comes to their artists, and WE DON’T LIKE THAT!!!

She even wants to take a backseat at times during live gigs. “I would like to try it and kind of switch it up,” she said. “When I do the tour and stuff, I would like to do maybe a section on the piano or on guitar or on drums.”

And although a musical career is relatively new to her, Selena is determined not to bite anyone else’s style. “You know the [Jonas] boys and people like Demi [Lovato] are my friends, so I definitely would not copy or do anything that they did. They’re really good, obviously, at what they’re doing, so I’m going to let them have that. But it’s also just kind of fun to learn things.”

Speaking of whom … at press time, rumors continued to circulate that Selena and Nick Jonas (who spoke at a press conference Wednesday about the Brothers’ new single) are an item. The pair recently fueled the speculation when they each shared a dating story, in two different interviews, that sounded familiar. At press time, neither star had commented on the rumors.

    I just wanted to say that I know Kali Littlefield. We went to elementary and middle school together in Kissimmee, Florida. She was always taking time off to work on some movie or modeling job. I almost hung out with her a couple of times but she was always one year ahead of me. She should be about 17 or 18 y.o. by now. xx – Selima
