Jessica:  I just saw Selena Gomez do the most emotional performance.

Gary:  No way!

Jessica:  Yes, it was an award show that aired a few weeks ago, and I know she was under pressure.

Gary:  Sure, she is very often in the spotlight in the news and such.

Jessica:  Her career is just taking off, and she’s really matured. I just think she’s coming into her own, especially after that performance. I know she was under pressure with all of the news about Justin Bieber…

Gary:  Oh, right, that’s actually pretty much all I know about Selena Gomez. She was in Disney.

Jessica:  Yes.

Gary:  And she dated Justin Bieber, apparently, and she’s really good friends…

Jessica:  …with Taylor Swift.

Gary:  That’s all I really know.

Jessica:  You should look at some of her early stuff. She’s been acting and singing for years. Her audition on YouTube for the Disney Channel is very impressive.

Gary:  Really? Is it emotional?

Jessica:  No, but she’s just very natural in front of the camera, and she is very young, so it’s really exciting to see her growing up in front of the camera.

Gary:  I look forward to following her career.

Everytime I watch her songs I feel she is too young for what she shows in her videos.😒


Maybe Im wrong but she dosent look matured at all.


For me Its like a teenager girl acts like a woman.


I dont like that but yes her videos are very popular and full of energy.


Anyway I prefer Taylor Swift more than Selena✌😁👍!

I don’t know who is Selena Gomez, however, I searched her on the internet. I had watched one of her MTV on the internet, in which she was just a kid pretending to be an adult. No offence, I am not her fan and I am just talking her outlook. However, I do admire her voice, that really suits for singing. By the way, I’d love her song “Slow down”, after having a quick listening of her songs.


Such a young singer and actor, I wish her having a brilliant future.
