Barney & Friends wouldn't be the same without Gomez sharing the screen. From there, she wowed us on Wizards of Waverly Place. With her adorable looks, natural talent, and endless charm, Gomez became an instant fan favorite, soon spreading her wings into the world of music.

Just like her acting impresses fans of all ages, so does Gomez's flair for music. Pop-heavy and catchy, her songs are radio-friendly and playlist musts. "Come & Get It," "Bad Liar," "Same Old Love," and others are perfect for her range and personality. The videos give us a taste of Gomez's acting chops as their pair perfectly with her musical pursuits.


Thirteen Reasons…

The Netflix hit Thirteen Reasons Why is controversial, but Gomez stands by her work as the show's executive producer. Dealing with suicide and teens, the topics are heavy, but the passion behind the project is evident in every scene. Gomez is proving her talent behind the camera as she takes a new approach to expanding on her career.

Health and Happiness

Over the years, Gomez has suffered from both physical and mental health issues. From her diagnosis of lupus to her kidney transplant to her treatment for anxiety, Gomez has come through as a fighter. She knows her health is what's important, so she has stepped back from the spotlight on a few occasions to focus on herself. Fans miss her but want her to be at her best.


What's Next for Gomez?

The Pokemon Company

Going into Pokemon Sword and Shield, I was unimpressed with the new starter Pokemon.

Gen 8 starter evos Meh.The Pokemon Company

I normally gravitate towards fire-type starters, but Cinderace was a little too humanoid-rabbit-wearing-pants for my tastes. Inteleon was just "lol no." Rillaboom hit the closest to my usual favorite powerhouse aesthetic (think Charizard, Blaziken, and Incineroar), but something about him didn't quite feel right (or maybe I just don't connect with grass types?).

She's one of today's most sought-after models and this year became a new mom. Kate Upton defines today's taste for something other than rail-thin models and takes her position as role model to heart. Seemingly down-to-earth despite her larger-than-life status, Upton is equal parts girl next door and sex symbol. Whether she's rockin' a bikini on the pages of Sports Illustrated or rocking her newborn to sleep, the Michigan native does it beautifully. Here's more about the model/actress and why fans are head-over-heels for the 5'10" stunner.

Posing Perfectly

Upton is best known for her modeling work. Her gigs are some of the grandest and her face (and figure) have been splashed across the pages of countless magazines. From Guess to Victoria's Secret to David Yurman, the biggest brands choose Upton to represent their goods. As for magazines? Flip through the pages of Vogue, GQ, Cosmopolitan, Glamour, Elle, and others and you're sure to find Upton staring back at you. And the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue catapulted Upton into the stratosphere when she was featured in 2011, '12, '13, and '17. A three-time cover model for the mag, Upton's look evidently sells.

Movie Star

Seeing Upton on screen may be even more exciting than photos alone. Catch her in films including Tower Heist, The Other Woman, The Layover, and Wild Man. Good looks paired with a knack for acting is silver screen gold. Look out Cameron!
