Selena Gomez is way more than just Justin Bieber's girlfriend. And while that's a title millions of girls would give their right arms to acquireÂ—there's lots of talent and other good stuff behind the girl who dates the Biebs.
According to a report from Toronto.com, Selena has come a long, long way since first appearing on TV. From her role as a little girl on Barney & Friends to a hit pop singer, belting out tunes like Love You Like A Love SongÂ—it's plain as day to see that Selena has grown in talent as she's grown in beauty.
If you take a look at Selena when she was first cast in the role of Alex Russo on the Disney Channel's Wizards of Waverly Place four years ago, you won't see the same actress you'll see on the series finale on January 6th. She has gained poise, creativity, and depth to her role. She has grown up, grown prettier, and added singing to her repertoire of talents.
And yes, in addition to all these things, Selena Gomez is Justin Bieber's girlfriend. Even Justin would admit that her role in life is far bigger than just dating him. She is compassionate, kind, and very generous with her time and her resources. In other words, Selena has become quite an impressive young woman both on stage or screen and off.
So hats off to Selena Gomez as she prepares to watch the final episode of Wizards of Waverly Place this week. Hopefully, fans everywhere will recognize the vast difference in Selena on Barney to the Selena of today. And whether she's singing during a sold-out concert or practicing lines for an upcoming film, yes, she still is Justin Bieber's girlfriend. But on top of that, she's a bright and talented young woman who has worked hard for her place in the entertainment world.
