She has quite the big week in her career lying ahead, and Selena Gomez was busy this weekend pushing forth with her ambitious "Monte Carlo" mall tour on Saturday (June 25).
The "Wizards of Waverly Place" darling took to the North Shore Mall in Peabody, MA, entertaining fans who'd lined up hours in advance to catch a glimpse of the 18-year-old beauty.
With a new album due out Tuesday (June 28) followed by the theatrical release of her movie "Monte Carlo" on Friday (July 1), Miss Gomez recently spoke with Teen Vogue about transitioning from a child star to a lifelong entertainer.
She said, "I’m in a very crucial spot. It’s like starting over. I was trying to explain it to one of my friends, and he said, 'You'll be fine. People believe in you.' But when they're putting together a movie with Leonardo DiCaprio, I don't think they're going to go, 'Selena Gomez would be great for this!' I'm not an option. It's humbling, having to go from this Disney high back down to having to fight for roles.”
