Selena Gomez named Billboard’s 2017 Woman of the Year

The singer will be honored at the annual Women in Music dinner and awards gala on Nov. 30.

Selena Gomez is Billboard’s 2017 Woman of the Year.

The two-time Billboard 200 chart-leader will be presented with the award Nov. 30 at the annual Women in Music dinner and awards gala, held at the Ray Dolby Ballroom in Los Angeles.

Gomez, an award-winning singer, producer and actress, will join an all-star cast of previous Woman of the Year honorees including Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Pink, Katy Perry, Fergie, Beyoncé and last year’s winner, Madonna, who delivered a moving speech that touched on feminism, sexism and much more.

“Not only is Selena soaring on the charts, but she continuously inspires young women everywhere to be authentic, give back and to not be afraid to use their voice,” said John Amato, president of The Hollywood Reporter-Billboard Media Group. “She is never afraid to speak her mind and has used her platform to advocate for the needs of others. We are thrilled to be able to honor her as our Woman of the Year.”

Gomez’ career has never been in better shape. In 2015 and 2016, she enjoyed top 10 Billboard Hot 100 smashes with “Same Old Love” and “Hands to Myself” and “We Don’t Talk Anymore.” The trend continues, with hits “Bad Liar,” “Fetish” (featuring Gucci Mane) and “It Ain’t Me” (with Kygo) in the past year.

Five of her albums have cracked the top 10 of the Billboard 200, with the studio albums Revival (2015) and Stars Dance (2013) leading the chart.  Not confined to music, Gomez also executive-produced the Netflix drama 13 Reasons Why, launched partnerships with Coach and Puma, and worked tirelessly across various philanthropic endeavors, from the Step Up Foundation to coaching for World Kindness Day, and raising more than $500,000 for the Lupus Research Alliance. Also, Gomez has been an active ambassador for UNICEF since 2009.

The prestigious event, held in conjunction with the publication of Billboard’s Women in Music issue, also recognizes the most powerful female executives in the industry. Additional Women in Music honorees will be unveiled in due course.

For the first time, the Women in Music event and a red-carpet pre-show will be broadcast live for on Twitter from 9pm-midnight EST on Nov. 30. Sponsors of the 2017 edition include Twitter, American Airlines, Iron Mountain Entertainment Services and Nielsen Music.

Selena Gomez splits from The Weeknd after 10 months of dating, and pictured with ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber

Selena Gomez has split from The Weeknd.

The Heart Wants What It Wants‘ hitmaker, 25, has gone her separate ways from the ‘Can’t Feel My Face‘ singer, 27, after just 10 months together.

A source told People magazine: “She and Abel have been going back and forth for a few months about their relationship. It’s been hard with him being on tour and her shooting in New York. That wasn’t easy on them.”

Selena has been spotted spending more time with her former flame Justin Bieber, 23, as of late – including visiting his house and going for breakfast with him – but they are not thought to be dating.

The famous pair have dated on and off for several years and were seen grabbing breakfast together at JOi Cafe in Westlake Village, CA, yesterday. The former couple seemed deep in conversation as Bieber tried to go incognito in a hoodie.

As source told Us Weekly: “They grabbed breakfast, blueberry smoothies with whipped cream, and were just talking—none of the staff really recognised them. Justin paid for both of them, they looked to be in a good mood, they just sat at a table and chatted for a while, no hand holding or anything, the conversation seemed lighthearted. They sat at a table inside where they had a little more privacy. They stayed for about 25 minutes before leaving together.”

But the reunion has not gone down well with Selena’s inner-circle.

A source close to Selena’s family told TMZ: “Justin is a vile human and will never be accepted by us. As long as she is even speaking to him in any way, it is not only disrespectful to everyone around her, it is disrespectful to herself.”

TMZ also claims that some members of Selena’s family believe Justin was the catalyst behind the depression that caused the starlet to check into rehab.

However, Selena isn’t taking her family’s feelings on-board – she’s been around Justin at least three times in the last week alone. The 25-year-old singer had previously opened up about her romance with The Weeknd, admitting she loves “tremendously big”.

She explained: “I’m the kind of of girl that loves tremendously big. I just have always been that girl. I will give my heart and my soul to the person that I love. It’s just how I operate. With that comes a lot, you know?”

During their relationship, Selena always saw The Weeknd – whose real name is Abel Tesfaye – as her best friend as well as her boyfriend.

She shared: “I don’t depend on one area of my life to make me happy. It’s really important for me to love and nourish my friends and family and to make sure that I never get influenced by a guy.

“I’ve wanted to be in a strong head space for years, and I really wasn’t. Before, I was so young and easily influenced, and I’d feel insecure. You want someone to add to your life, not to complete you, if that makes sense. I’m lucky because he’s more of a best friend than anything else.”

Selena & Demi: Still Friends?

Selena & Demi: Still Friends?

 

Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato have a long history together, dating back to when they were child actresses on Barney & Friends. They’ve been through a lot of ups and downs like back in 2010 when Demi was asked about Selena and she answered “Ask Taylor“. At the time, Gomez was hanging out with Taylor Swift and Lovato was clearly feeling snubbed. There totally was a rift, as Lovato told Girls Life that the both of them “were very busy” and “wishes the best to Selena” in the same year. Demi unfollowed Selena on Twitter, but then in 2015 they posted a photo together with the caption: “Look at how #coolforthesummer we are… Friends for years, #sameoldlove”.

Nowadays. When Selena’s new song “Fetish” was out, Demi didn’t forget to write a tweet about it, congratulating Selena. Gomez did the same by saying that she’s listening to Lovato’s song, “Sorry Not Sorry“. Yesterday, October 17th, Demi’s new documental, “Simply Complicated” was released.

Selena commented Demi’s post on Instagram: “This was beautiful. I’m so happy for you. You always continue to bold and real. I wish more people were like you. Love you.” This was so sweet of her, and of course, Demi commented too: “Thank you so much, this means the world to me and more. Love you too.” Also, they started following each-other on Instagram.

It seems like they are on solid ground again and fingers are crossed that they stay that way.

#10YearsOfWOWP: Selena Gomez & Jennifer Stone Created the Hat Dance on ‘Wizards’

Believe it or not but today is the 10-year anniversary of Wizards of Waverly Place and the creator of the show is spilling secrets in light of the occasion. Todd Greenwald chatted with International Business Times about that crazy hat song fans started to know and love in the first season of Wizards and how Selena Gomez and Jennifer Stone put their own spin on it. But, before we get to the good stuff, it may help if we travel back in time a bit. What actually was the hat dance? It was a little quirky song that Selena and Jennifer’s character would sing every time they saw a hat. Sometimes, Selena’s on-screen mom would join in too.

The song went a little something like this. “What’s that? A hat? Crazy, funky, junky hat. Overslept, hair unsightly. Trying to look like Keira Knightley. We’ve been there, we’ve done that, we see right through your funky hat.” Yes, bizarre but incredibly catchy and lovable all around. Todd explained that even though the writers may have come up with the words, it was Selena and Jennifer who were the masterminds behind the dance that went along with it.

He said the song was supposed to be Selena and Jennifer’s characters spin on a secret handshake, “It was to highlight a Harper and Alex bonding moment, to show that they had some history together. It came out of the writers’ room, but where it really came to life was when Jennifer and Selena gave it the dance.”

He continued, “It was just a collaboration of a silly line of words, brought to life during run-through by Jennifer and Selena. They gave it the life…You don’t write that stuff with the intent of it being taken that way. But it’s always great to see that.”

Just so everyone knows, the writers of the show didn’t sit in a room thinking of this dance themselves. LOL. Todd admitted he actually gets asked that question by fans all the time. Can you imagine?!

Now that we’ve got the full deets about the hat song and dance, it makes the whole thing even sweeter. Not only does it show how much fun Selena and Jennifer had on set but also what their relationship and friendship was like when the cameras stopped rolling. They really weren’t just co-stars they were besties who loved to act silly and hang out together.

Selena nor Jennifer have yet to comment on the spilled secret of the hat dance and how those creative juices started flowing when the dance was in the making. So, we’re kind of hoping to hear from them. Or just kind of hoping they’ll do the hat dance one more time. It was iconic and it’s the 10-year anniversary after all so what better time to bust out the moves.

Selena Gomez reportedly releasing a health-related documentary about her Lupus struggles

Selena Gomez reportedly releasing a health-related documentary about her Lupus struggles

According to a new report by In Touch, Selena Gomez is working on a health-related documentary that will chronicle her struggles with Lupus. Selena shocked fans nationwide when she revealed she underwent a kidney transplant last summer. Selena has never been shy about sharing her health issues with the public and has always been in control of how information is released to the media. Though Selena Gomez hasn’t personally confirmed the report publicly, it makes sense that this could be a project she’s working on.

The report states that Selena Gomez will give viewers an in-depth look at her life and battle with Lupus and will clear away any confusion the public may have had regarding reports.

While some fans are saying they have trouble believing the In Touch report because it quotes an anonymous source, others feel that it seems in line with the type of project Selena Gomez would work on. Her IMDB page lists her projects that are currently in progress.

Selena Gomez is currently filming an untitled Woody Allen movie and working on Hotel Transylvania 3. At this point, there is nothing on IMDB about the health-related documentary.

When Selena Gomez announced she underwent a kidney transplant and that her best friend Francia Raisa donated her kidney to save Selena’s life, she did so on Instagram.

She discussed a little bit about what she went through but stated that she looked forward to sharing more of her health struggles with her fans. A documentary might be the best vehicle for Selena to deliver that message.

Selena Gomez is a woman of many talents. In addition to being the celebrity with the most Instagram followers, she is not just an actress and singer, but also a producer. She is the executive producer of the controversial Netflix series 13 Reasons Why.

Since Selena has a  working relationship with Netflix and as 13 Reasons Why is gearing up for a second season, it’s possible she could have a documentary on Netflix.  As she is already producing, it seems highly plausible this is a true report.

Selena Gomez has an exciting collaboration “coming soon”

Selena Gomez is about to join forces with a pretty big DJ, and fans are understandably over the moon!

Marshmello has worked with Noah Cyrus, Khalid and more, but the EDM producer’s collaboration promises to be his biggest one yet. The DJ is currently gearing up to drop a highly anticipated track with none other than Selena Gomez and the good news is, fans won’t have to wait long to get their hands on it.

As pointed out by Billboard, when a fan reached out via Twitter and asked the producer to share when they can expect the song to drop, Marshmello replied with a pretty exciting answer.

“Coming very very soon!” tweeted the musician.

Marshmello may not have provided us with a specific date, but the fact that he’s hyping the release up has got us hoping that the track is almost ready to go.

Meanwhile, Gomez herself has been doing her part to get fans excited for the upcoming collaboration.

The forthcoming track is set to be featured on Gomez’ new album, and it’s clear the song means a lot to her.

Speaking to San Diego’s Energy 103.7 back in August, Gomez called the track “beautiful” and also revealed that it happens to be one of her favorite songs.

“It’s really cool. It’s kind of in that world, is world, and I’m stepping into it and bringing my style too,” teased Gomez.

Selena will begin working immediately on the newest campaign for Phenom, the company’s upcoming release of woman shoes.

It’s wonderful to see this influence on style and culture and I’m so excited to be a part of it. I hope we can create something special together. We already have some cool projects on the way.”

In addition, the partnership includes Puma and Selena working together on causes, important for her.

“Selena is authentic, creative, talented and real. All women, who wear our products, look at her as a role model”, says Adam Patrick, Global Director of Puma. “She recently demonstrated how strong she is. With her honesty about Lupus, she provided an incredible example of trust, balance and determination to all of us. Selena is the perfect partner for Puma, because she is not afraid of the challenges the world can offer; she struggles and perseveres, which is exactly the message of the brand. It will not only represent us, but it will also define and brighten up our business women.”

The contract is valid for at least two years and will bring Selena more than $30 million.
