Selena G, ‘Not Strong Enough For Disney’?

selenagomezyoungpicture


Selena Gomez revealed to Top Of The Pops [Via BOP And Tiger Beat]: ‘When I was 11, I had a casting director say to me, ‘You’re not strong enough to carry your own show. You’re not strong enough to be part of the Disney Channel.’ I cried all the time afterwards but I just kept on working hard.

..Whenever you have a goal, whether you want to be a doctor or a singer, people will find a way to bring you down. I always tell people that if you have something you’re really passionate about, don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do it.’

    Wise words from both Casting director and Selena.

    She may not be a “great singer”, but at least she is able to carry a tune and hold some notes, it also helps that she has a pleasant vocal tone. Sure she has her bad moments, but there are definitely times where she actually sounds good enough. I don’t know why some people likes to over-exaggerate about this when she’s NOT even that bad!


    Ehh, she’s pretty bad live sometimes.
    And that’s the problem with the current music industry. If your voice is only pretty good, then you get a freaking record deal, so the spotlight is taken off of the people who have amazing voices.

    man, Disney must be really strict ! but she got into anyway ha , in their face .

    I just think there are many different types of singers out there. Some have soft voices, others have powerful voices, etc. But the singers who have good voices (and not powerful) are also passionate with what they do and they love it, so why can’t they be given the chance? Colbie Caillat auditioned for American Idol TWICE and got rejected both times. Yet she released her own albums and sold millions. Why? Because her voice and her songs speaks to people. She may not have an amazing voice like Christina Aguilera, but she can sing with some depth. I think Selena is able to sing with some emotion and can hit certain notes nicely, which is why I think she’s a good singer. The thing is that she’s not consistent with it. But she’s still young and there’s always room for improvements.

    Of course, she fucked with the people in there to get on Disney. Why do I say this? She can’t sing for shit, and that’s the only explanation for her to have a singing career. So little girls, listen to Selena’s advice: Put a lot of make-up on, act really innocent, say I love you to your fans even if you don’t care about them. That way, you will be famous, since of course, now it doesn’t matter if you have talent or not.

    Actually, there is nothing special with her voice. It’s just an average voice, everyone can sing like her. It’s not different or unique. It has an emotion? It doesn’t really seem like that, since she just sings and sings about boys and boys without any effort. Boys aren’t everything in the world, God! You can’t really see that she has a strong feeling while singing about BOYS. A year without rain? Really? Selena is still young, I don’t think that she loves someone that much to have a year without rain when they are away. She is not going to get married right now.

    It may be an ensemble cast, but Selena has the most screen time, while David’s is a close second.

  • partyindabaham

    But umm she isn’t carrying her own show. Wizards stars an ensemble, the Russo kids are the leads.

    She is billed first because of her previous work with Disney Channel (pilots and such). Wizards isn’t like Hannah Montana, where the sole lead if Hannah Montana/Miley Stewart.
