Though Disney star Selena Gomez has many irons in the fire, she’s understandably upset about ending her hit show “Wizards of Waverly Place.” When MTV News caught up with Selena as she promoted the upcoming film “Ramona and Beezus,” she confirmed what will be her last season on the “Wizards” series and dished about a new “Wizards” movie and her new feel-good album.
“Unfortunately, I’m doing my last season of my show, which I’m really heartbroken about,” the teen star told us. “That’s gonna be a terrible time for me. I’m gonna do a movie for my show, which I’ll be excited to end it with, and then a tour.”
Selena fans will have so many other projects to look forward to, they may move on from “Wizards” quickly! Selena certainly is; in addition to the planned movie and tour, the singer-actress recently wrapped “Monte Carlo” alongside Leighton Meester, Cory Monteith and Katie Cassidy. She’s also busy planning the follow-up album to 2009’s Kiss & Tell, due this year.
“The title so far of my album, I mean, I’m hoping it will stick is A Year Without Rain,” the “Ramona and Beezus” star revealed. “It’s basically one of my favorite songs on the record… It’s kind of got a more feel-good dance beat and feel. I love it. It’s different, kind of shows my growth of my music.” She added, “I think if anything the lyrics are powerful, in a way.”
On which songs in particular inspire her lyrically, Selena couldn’t help but nail down a tune called “Intuition.” “There’s the song called ’Intuition’ that’s one of my favorites. The message is basically every decision that you regret or second-guess, [just] do it [anyway]. I love that message so much.”
Are you as sad as Selena is about the end of “Wizards of Waverly Place,” or would you rather see her doing other things? What do you think of her having a more feel-good dance beat sound?
