Selena Gomez to Take a Break From TV for College


Selena Gomez


The 'Wizards of Waverly Place' star will imitate Natalie Portman who studied in college while having a movie project in line.

Selena Gomez has had a vision of what she will do in few years time and it won't involve TV. The 16-year-old actress will take a break from the industry after completing her contract with Disney Channel for "Wizards of Waverly Place", in order to concentrate on college years.

"I think this'll be the last series that I do," Selena revealed. "I'm going to try to pull a Natalie Portman. Natalie went to Harvard while shooting 'Star Wars'. I don't know how she did it. I want to have lunch with her and ask her - that seems like a bunch of stress right there."

Selena is looking forward to enroll in her dream school, Northwestern University, and majors in either theater or journalism. She has been so far home-schooled and has not yet taken SATs.

In tow with her education plan, Selena also would love to make a move to feature movies. "I'm going to make that transition slowly," she added. "I'm not going to immediately go do something that's way off the charts, because my goal is to keep my audience and have them grow with me."

Selena Gomez will start filming the third season of "Wizards" in August and will release a debut album in fall. Besides, she has two TV movies coming out this summer, "Princess Protection Program" and "Wizards of Waverly Place: The Movie". "I don't really like to rest too much," the starlet said. "...I do constantly like to work. I believe that it keeps me going and makes me happy."

    Hey Selena if you read everything on this page then you will probably know that I am a certified Missouri hunter ( since I was 11 ) and that I have plenty of land to hunt on. I guess what I am trying to say is... If you like the outdoors... I could take you on a picnic or take you hunting if you would like... don't worry I wouldn't try to harm you, swear on the Bible ( I am Catholic ) ... so if you would like that, leave a reply, but you'll have to prove it's you somehow... oh this is pointless... still...

    I am a tiny bit glad Selena doesn't live near Kansas City ( I live an hour away ) because she's so hot I would melt. Just kidding. Well she is that hot, but I hope she can come to St. Joseph, MO ( there is also a St. Joseph in Minnesota ) I live about 20 miles away well I might be closer.

    Hey Mr. Rossi I doubt it was you but did you perhaps patent a rifle for youth hunters that has interchangeable barrels ( A .243, a .22 and a .20 gauge ) ? If it was you I own one and have shot an 8 point buck ( white-tail ) and a 19 lb, 9 inch beard, and 1 inch spur turkey ( a male ) with mine and have to say it works great! I was certified 2 years ago as a registered Missouri hunter...

    Dear Selena, I am only 13, but I want you to see this poem I wrote for you. You don't know me, but I know you, I pray to God someday you do. I want you to know you are pretty to me; When I see your face, my heart flutters with glee. Like wind and leaves on an autumn day, When I see your smile I am blown away. You are glorious to me, should you read this you will know; Your skin gives off a radiant glow. Your hair is like a dark-brown sea, Gentle, flowing, beckoning me. You probably thought this poem is dumb. May prosperity and good days to you come. I have more to the poem, but it does not make much sense. But if you want to hear it, leave a comment here. However, I do not come to this site often. Then again, you prabably don't either, if at all. Just ask for Justin J.

    I don't think Selena must ask for college. Selena, you're so polite and nice girl so you'll know what you'll do. Moreover, come to visit in Taranto, Italy! I love you so, Selena!
