Selena Gomez Postcards ON THE RUN

Actress and singer Selena Gomez puts her money where her photos are with mobile photo application, Postcards on the Run. Last fall, actress and singer Selena Gomez joined a $750,000 angel-investment round for photo-sharing app Postcards on The Run. The LA start-up, led by former MySpace exec Josh Brooks, lets mobile users snap pictures on their phones (both Android and ioS) and turn them into physical postcards at 99 cents a pop.

Since then Gomez has remained an active investor—she says she’s helped Brooks understand his app ‘from a 19-year-old’s perspective,’ and encouraged him to add space on each card for messages. ‘I put my money into the project because I really felt like it had meaning,’ she says, adding that she has over 700 photos in her iPhone. “I used to look through photo albums with my family and now I don’t anymore; I just scroll through my phone. There’s something really magical about holding a photo in your hands.’

But how does a 19-year-old celebrity become involved in tech startups? For Gomez, she has her family to thank. Step-dad Brian Teefey is the techie of the family and encouraged her to put her money behind the fledgling app more than a year ago. ‘I thought the idea was genius,’ she tells me, ‘but when I talked to my step-dad about it he helped me reach out to Josh. It was cool because he was really open about my getting involved. He thought it was awesome.’

    Next up- Selena porn tape gets confused with child pornography. I’d never thought I’d say this, but Justin Bieber actually looks older.

    Omg people are so sensitive, saying someone looks bad in a pic is not hating, my God.

    Oh my word. She looks like an adult in the first pic. Never thought it was possible. Of course she goes back to her baby faced self in the second one, but damn look at the first. A miracle happened.
