Acting career: Selena Gomez had small roles in 'Walker, Texas Ranger: Trial By Fire', 'Brain Zapped', 'The Suite Life of Zack & Cody' and 'Hannah Montana' after being scouted by the Disney Channel. She was cast in 'Wizards of Waverly Place' in 2007 as Alex Russo and the show immediately became a hit.

Gomez is plotting her live comeback at the 2017 AMAs next month, after recovering from her kidney transplant operation earlier this year.
Selena Gomez has announced her return to the live arena for the first time since her kidney transplant earlier this year, revealing that she’ll be performing at next month’s American Music Awards.
The 25 year old pop megastar has been recovering from the autoimmune disease lupus for the last couple of years, and revealed last month that the reason for her absence from public life over the summer was that her best friend, actress Francia Raisa, had donated a kidney to her.
However, the American Music Awards are a happy hunting ground for Gomez historically, as she provided show-stopping performances there in 2014 and 2015, while winning the best pop/rock act award in 2016.

The 21 year old model apparently doesn't care about her ex The Weeknd dating Selena - at least according her mom Yolanda Hadid.
She and the Canadian singer, real name Abel Tesfaye, were in a relationship for more than a year before breaking up in 2016. When photos appeared back in January of him kissing Selena while on a date in L.A., she immediately unfollowed her on Instagram before posting a photo of herself flipping the bird.
That was ten months ago, though, and Bella is now reportedly over it – or at least she is according to her mom, Yolanda Hadid. The former ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ star appeared on ‘Watch What Happens Live’ with Andy Cohen, and the host asked whether Bella still “cares that The Weeknd is with Selena Gomez?”
