Is Selena Gomez Quitting Music?

Selena Gomez has been acting long before she ventured into the music world. The former Disney star got her start on Barney and Friends (along with BFF Demi Lovato) which led to her big break on the Disney show Wizards of Waverly Place. Since then she’s also dabbled in music with her group Selena Gomez and the Scene, churning out radio hits like “Who Says” and “Love You Like a Love Song.” Up until recently Selena was focused on her music, but since she started filming movies such as the upcoming Spring Breakers, it seems like Selena may be quitting music. Is Selena following in the footsteps of Justin Timberlake and abandoning the music thing all together?

Not quite! Selena may be putting music on the backburner for now to focus on acting, but it’s more like a pause!

Showbiz Spy reports that Selena has said: “I’m just kind of halting music for a bit. [I’ve] been really focusedon more acting. For me it’s been fun to take risks and do things that are completely different.”

“To be honest, maybe some of you guys might not be comfortable with it … I’m still the same person. Things that challenge me really excite me.

“I’m doing another movie called The Getaway with Ethan Hawke. It’s really, really exciting. So we’re doing that and then hopefully another movie, but that hasn’t really been confirmed yet.

“Then I’ll start working on my fourth album, which will be the best album I’ll ever do!”

Which do you prefer Selena as: a musician or an actress?
