Selena Gomez's Swan Song: Exploring Her Decision to Release 'One More Album'
Selena Gomez, the multi-talented actress and singer, is making a shift in her career focus. At 31, she has recently shared in an interview that while she believes she has one more album left in her, acting will likely take precedence over her musical endeavors.
From Hobby to Full-Time Singer
Selena Gomez, initially known for her acting prowess, never intended to pursue a full-time career in singing. However, what started as a hobby evolved into a significant aspect of her professional life. In a recent episode of the SmartLess podcast, Gomez opened up about her career trajectory and future goals.
Choosing Acting Over Music
When asked about her two passions, Selena Gomez revealed, 'I do feel like I have one more album in me, but I would probably choose acting.' Expressing a desire to take a step back and relax, Gomez emphasized that she is tired and that her initial aspiration was to become an actress.
Reflections on Her Singing Career
Acknowledging her self-perceived limitations as a singer, Gomez stated, 'I don’t think I’m the best singer, but I do know how to tell stories, and I love being able to make songs.' She explained how her journey into music began as a fun side project that eventually overlapped with her acting commitments.
Juggling Music and Acting
During her time on Wizards of Waverly Place, her breakout role on the
Disney Channel, Gomez found herself juggling both singing and acting. She admitted that she started having a lot of fun with music, especially during tours, while simultaneously working on the TV show. However, as she has grown older, Gomez has expressed a desire to find something to settle on. The Disney Channel Influence
Gomez shed light on her early involvement with music during her
Disney Channel days. She emphasized how Disney, being a formidable platform, encouraged her to learn how to sing, shaping her into a triple threat — an actor, singer, and dancer. Despite the initial push, Gomez is now looking towards a more focused and settled path, emphasizing acting over music as she navigates her evolving career.
