Selena Gomez discusses her split from Justin Bieber
According To Uswhispers Selena Gomez, a singer-actress, has admitted that she 'felt like a joke' as she tried to make the 'frustrating' shift from Disney child star to adult acting jobs. According to femalefirst.co.uk, the 29-year-old singer-actress began her career on the kids' TV show 'Barney and Friends' before starring in Disney's 'Wizards of Waverly Place.'
She said on the 'Awards Chatter' podcast of The Hollywood Reporter: "It seemed to me that people had a hard time taking me seriously. I eventually got through it, and I'm pleased I did, but it was quite frustrating. You know, I felt like a joke."
After 'Wizards of Waverly Place' concluded in 2012, Gomez made the transition from child star to adult, and one of her first breakthrough roles was in the crime drama 'Spring Breakers,' opposite another former Disney star Vanessa Hudgens.
Selena also discussed another significant event in her life, her breakup with ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber, and stated that the breakup helped develop her as a person. She went on to say: "It allowed me to create a character who doesn't put up with rubbish or disrespect... I was clearly going through a really difficult break-up, and then there was the issue of my job and where I was going to go and what was going to happen."
In 2018, the two split up, and he married model Hailey Bieber a few months later.
