Former Disney starlet and multiplatinum singer Selena Gomez conquered the worlds of acting and music while she was still in her teens. Born in Texas in 1992, she began her acting career at the tender age of 7. Guest spots on popular Disney series led to the dark-haired beauty being cast in the lead role on the network's 'Wizards of Waverly Place' in 2007. Sel parlayed her mega-popularity into many charitable endeavors, a clothing line and a burgeoning music career, signing her first record deal just before turning 16. Fronting the band Selena Gomez & the Scene, she released three albums that displayed her penchant for dance pop. She went solo for 2013's 'Stars Dance,' which featured her first-ever Top 10 hit, 'Come & Get It.' Her acting career continued apace, with her appearing in a variety of projects, including the more-grownup 2012 movie 'Spring Breakers.'
