Justin Bieber’s ex squeeze, and Taylor Swift’s workout partner, Selena Gomez’s tour is introducing songs from her new album “Revival.” She describes her songs as “Euro Dance” or “Euro Pop,” influenced by Bruno Mars and others. 2016 is her year, as she is starring in three new movies, “The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving” (with Paul Rudd), “Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising” (Seth Rogen), and “In Dubious Battler” (with James Franco). She also stars in the new Netflix series “13 Reasons Why.”
Selena Gomez’s first job was as an actor on the PBS children’s show “Barney.” She has appeared in nearly every tween TV show, eventually starring in “The Wizards of Waverly Place.” She moved on to more adult venues, including doing the voiceover for “Mavis” in “Hotel Transylvania” with Steve Buscemi, and her song hit “Come and Get It” made it into the top ten and Billboard’s Top 200.
