Popstar of the Year: Selena Gomez


If this was for the best all round star, it would have to go to Selena Gomez hands down. She’s a musician, actress, UNICEF Goodwill Amabassador and a philanthropist too – and she’s only 18!

It’s been another big year for her band, Selena Gomez and The Scene, who brought out their second album A Year Without Rain in September. In the US the album managed the impressive achievement of reaching number four in the charts.


The year had already started on a rather good note for the band. Their single Naturally, which had been released at the end of December 2009, went on to be a massive hit, reaching number one in the US Charts and going platinum be selling over 1 million copies in the US!

Oh, and the video also has over 76 million views on YouTube!

Just to prove how big she is, she has also performed on numerous occasions this year with Justin Bieber. And something girls may not want to hear, it’s rumoured they’re dating!


Selena has of course also continued her acting as the star in Disney’s Wizards of Waverly Place, as the show went into a fourth season.

The show, all about three wizards in training, has continued to prove immensely successful, the film adaptation winning a prestigious Emmy Award for “Outstanding Children’s Program”!

Selena has also begun an exciting move into films, and has spent the year filming for a 2011 release called Monte Carlo, so 2011 promises to be yet another big year for Selena Gomez!

So do you think this rising superstar deserves the title of Popstar of the Year? Let us know!

In the meantime, here’s Selena Gomez and The Scene with their hit song Naturally.
