Yes,21 Things You Don't Know About Selena Gomez(Party Three)
Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift spend as much time together as their crazy schedules allow. The gals often do lunch and even bake cupcakes together! "We've been friends for four years and she has been through so much with me that I can say we're almost sisters," Swift said in a 2012 interview.
16. She Has Three Platinum Singles
Gomez decided to put her music career on the back burner in early 2012, but she's had a pretty successful run at pop stardom so far. She has three RIAA Platinum singles: "Naturally," "Who Says," and "Love You Like a Love Song." She also has three Gold albums.
17. She and Demi Lovato Go Way Back
Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato have a lot in common: They started on Barney and Friends, both have dated Jonas Brothers, they've starred in Disney Channel shows, and more. So over the years they've remained good friends. “I’m very lucky to have someone like her in my life," Lovato said in 2012.
18. She Was Linked to Taylor Lautner
Months before Taylor Lautner began dating Taylor Swift, the Twilight heartthrob was linked to Ms. Gomez. They were spotted together in Vancouver a few times in April 2009 but nothing ever came of the rumored romance. By October of that year, Lautner had cozied up to Ms. Swift.
19. She Turned Down 'High School Music 3'
Selena Gomez could have joined Ashley Tisdale and Zac Efron in HSM3, but she passed. "High School Musical 3 is cute, and I think it would be a great opportunity for someone else. But I passed on it because I didn’t want to do it. I plan to take other roles in acting that are challenging for me. After Disney, I want to be taken seriously as an actress for many years," she said in 2008.
20. She Voiced 90 Characters in One Movie
At 15, Gomez voiced 90 Whos in Horton Hears a Who, starring Jim Carrey and Steve Carrell. She played Carrell's daughters in the 2008 animated flick, but never actually got to meet the actor. "It was kind of a bummer!" she said. "But at the same time, it was cool. I can see him and say 'Hey, I played your daughter!'"
21. She Had to Learn Two British Accents
Gomez spent weeks learning two different British accents for her 2011 role in Monte Carlo. The actress played Grace in the flick, a girl who gets mistaken for a socialite while vacationing in Paris. "Accent training was the hardest thing on top of learning lines," she said.
