'Barney & Friends'
Gomez began her career in show business in 2001 when she performed on the popular children's program Barney & Friends as Gianna. Dropped from the series after two years, Gomez auditioned for other shows without much success. She landed a small role in the movie Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over in 2003 and a bit part as Julie on Walker, Texas Ranger: Trial by Fire in 2005. She also signed on to play Emily Grace Garcia in Brain Zappedin 2006, and even recorded a song for the show.

She then landed her first starring role when the channel cast her as Alex Russo in the show Wizards of Waverly Placein 2007. The hit series ran until 2012.
'Another Cinderella Story,' 'Princess Protection Program'
In 2008, Gomez made her first animated movie,Horton Hears a Who!, and starred in the ABC Family movie Another Cinderella Story with fellow Disney Channel actor Andrew Seeley. Selena filmed two projects for the Disney Channel Original Movie franchise as well. The first was Princess Protection Program, released in 2009 and also starring Demi Lovato. Later in 2009, she starred in Wizards of Waverly Place: The Movie.
In early January 2014, it was reported that Gomez had been battling lupus — an autoimmune disease that can cause facial swelling, fatigue, headaches and joint pain — for more than two years. In September 2017, the singer and actress revealed that advancing symptoms of lupus had forced her to undergo a kidney transplant earlier in the year, with her roommate and friend Francia Raísa serving as the donor. One month later, Gomez provided details of the experience with TODAY’s Savannah Guthriein an NBC news interview: “She lived with me in this interesting time where my kidneys were just done,” recalled Gomez. “The thought of asking somebody to [donate] was really difficult for me. And she volunteered and did it. … The fact that she was a match, I mean, that's unbelievable.” Thanks to Raísa, Gomez was able to quickly move to the operating room for the life-saving procedure. While there were additional complications during the operation, Gomez has recovered nicely, noting that there was...
The chart-topping artist, who previously spoke about her battles with anxiety and depression, revealed in an April 2020 interview with Miley Cyrusthat she had been diagnosed as bipolar. "When I got to know more information, it actually helps me," Gomez told her fellow former Disney star. "It doesn't scare me once I know it."
Outside of acting and music, Gomez has served as a spokesperson for Borden Milk, appearing in the organization's advertising campaign and print ads. She also worked on a campaign that encouraged teenagers to learn more about the 2008 presidential candidates. A longtime supporter of UNICEF, Gomez became one of the organization's ambassadors in 2009, and works to help the world's children through her C.A.N. (Charity, Action, Now) initiative. In 2017, Gomez teamed with Coach to launch the Selena Grace line of handbags and accessories, and the following year the two sides collaborated again for a ready-to-wear collection. In summer 2019, it was reported that the artist had filed a trademark for "Selena Gomez" for a series of beauty products, including fragrances, skin-care and hair-care preparations, cosmetics, soaps and essential oils.
After first meeting in 2009, Gomez eventually entered into an on- and off-again relationship with pop star Justin Bieber. She has also been linked to fellow musician The Weeknd. Gomez has publicly feuded with her mother, Mandy Teefy. The two unfollowed each other on Instagram in December 2017, with some speculating it was because the singer had rekindled her romance with Bieber, though another source said the situation was more complicated than that. Teefy later told Gossip Cop that she wasn't happy with her daughter dating Bieber, but said there was little she could do about it. "Selena can live her life however she wants as long as she is happy, safe and healthy," she said.
