Memo to Selena Gomez: STAHP

1/17/2014 10:00 AM PST, by Sarah Taylor
Here's an addendum to that memo, if we need to be really explicit in what we're trying to convey: QUIT BELLYACHING OVER BABYDOUCHE JUSTIN BIEBER.

Selena Gomez, girl, you're sweet and fabulous and not even close to being on He Who Shall Not Be Named's level, and that is major props to you. Stop waxing poetic over someone who isn't really even going to be a blip in your hopefully-long life, so just chill, friend -- back up off it. 

This is what Selena had to say in a recent interview when asked about her music career, her response somehow ending up being redirected back to Justin Bieber, like it usually does. Sigh: 

"This year is when I really started feeling powerful. I had always been the underdog secretly. I was on Disney when it was Miley [Cyrus], Jonas Brothers, and Demi [Lovato]. Even though my show was picked up, it seems like I was putting in so much work and seeing no results. I questioned the way I looked, acted, sang, and wrong. I started becoming very stale with my music and I realized that I was doing things for other people. Then I turned 20, went through a really bad breakup, and realized I needed to pick up everything - I needed to have 'Come & Get it' be amazing. I wanted it all to be me. I was tired of feeling defeated. All this time, I was so pissed trying to figure out why I felt like such an underdog, and I finally realized I just wasn't ready. I'm glad it's taken me this long to get where I am because now I'm ready for it."

Yes. Yes, yes, yes on mostly all of that, except the part where she even brings Justin into all this. Selena says she's empowered, but yet she was photographed all over this DB earlier in the month. She talks about making great strides with confidence and overcoming self-defeating behavior while talking a big game about moving forward, but then Justin sends out the hounds and Selena goes running. 

Let's get it together, Selena, OK? Not even for us -- for you. That's who this is all about, right?

Defeated and the underdog? She was one of the most popular on Disney. Sounds to me like she is not happy if she's not #1...Because she's been immensely popular for a long time now. I really don't understand what she's saying. I adore Selena, but she doesn't have the acting or singing chops or vision to succeed as a major star past Disney despite the vast machine pushing her. I can only imagine how she feels now with such lukewarm reaction to her "grown up" music & movies. She should stick to comedy, which is more her niche.

Who thinks like this? Geez, do you really think celebs are going to heed or even read your "priceless advice?"
