Woman Crush Wednesday: Selena Gomez

Songstress Selena Gomez hails from Texas and has been making waves in the acting and music world since being cast as Alex Russo in Disney's Wizards of Waverly Place.

When she’s not selling out concerts, she’s smashing other records. Selena is the Instagram Queen as she tops the photo sharing app’s charts with the most followers - over 104 million fans to be exact. Selena also boasts over 4.48 billion views on her YouTube VEVO channel.

The 24-year-old beauty is definitely not slowing down anytime soon and we can’t wait to see what she does next. Selena Gomez is this week’s Woman Crush Wednesday…

She went without her phone for 90 days
Selena admitted that she went complete cold turkey and had no access to her phone for three months while in rehab recently - props to you girl! She announced in August that she was taking a break to focus on her health and was in the Tennessee facility for panic attacks, anxiety and depression.


She's the original member in the ultimate girl squad
When we say ultimate girl squad - we’re talking Taylor Swift’s group of gal pals. Selena spoke about her love having her girl friends with James Corden before belting out Taylor’s Shake It Off. She also shares a lot of girl love online including being apart of the #LeanInTogether campaign saying 'I have some of the most incredible women on my team. I’m so lucky to have women that inspire me every single day.' 


She has lyrics printed on drinks
James Corden slightly embarrassed the superstar while recording his popular segment, Carpool Karaoke when he announced to everyone that would listen that they needed the cup with her Love You Like A Love Song lyrics on it as he was 'in the car with Selena Gomez!'


She adores her fans
Selena always credits her fans - that’s what people love about her and she will always make time where possible to go outside after the show. Her Instagram is full of shots from across the world - one captioned 'My whole life. You matter most. Thank you for letting me do what I love every day.'


She’s one of the most honest people in the biz
During her first appearance in months at the American Music Awards, Selena picked up the Best Pop/Rock Female award. In her acceptance speech, she opened up saying; 'I had to stop, I had everything and I was absolutely broken inside. I kept it all together enough to where I would never let you down but I kept it too much together to where I let myself down. I’m so grateful that I have the opportunity to share what I love every single day with the people that I love. If you’re broken, you do not have to stay broken.' Preach!
