It seems like Selena Gómez can’t keep herself out of the spotlight—for good reasons of course.
The latest buzz circling the Tex-Mex pop singer comes after the release of her new single “A Year Without Rain” which the Disney star also recorded in Spanish, titled “Un año sin lluvia.”
In a telephone interview with the Associated Press, the 18-year-old stressed how her “dream would be to have an entire album in Spanish” but thinks it’s best to begin by releasing individual singles in Spanish because “it would be good practice.”
Gómez certainly keeps busy these days. Along with starring as the naughty-nice witch Alex in Disney’s series “Wizards of Waverly Place,” the performer also has her own clothing line in Kmart and is a UNICEF Ambassador.
Doesn’t come as surprise that Gómez admitted not having enough time right now to record a full Spanish album, despite really wanting to do so.
“We didn’t have time for more,” said Gómez to the Associated Press. “So, they translated [that song] and it came out beautiful and fun.”
Gómez, who was scheduled to appear in actor George Lopez’s show “Lopez Tonight” late Tuesday night, told the wire service how she lost her Spanish when she began attending school, but that she is more than willing to learn it again to avoid a disconnect “with our audience.”
The “Tell Me Something I Don’t Know” star also added how she re-connected with her Hispanic identity three years ago, after attending The National Council of La Raza’s, “American Latino Media Arts Award” (ALMA) ceremony and witnessed other Latina actresses proudly representing their Hispanic roots.
