Selena was born in Grand Prairie, Texas on July 22nd, 1992.
Her mother, Mandy Teefey, was just 16 years old when she gave birth to Selena. Growing up, Selena went to her mother's rehearsals for theatre and discovered her love for the stage.
Selena also gave credit to her mother for her success.
"When I started working, my mom was the person in my life that helped guide me through most of that. We kind of grew up together. Everything that I am has become a little bit of what my mom's gone through."
At 11 years old, Selena started her career with Disney.
She actually admitted in her audition, that she and her friends used to use glowsticks to draw the mickey mouse ears that all of the Disney Channel stars do.
Little did she know, she would be drawing the ears, years down the road.
Selena was offered a role in Disney's 'High School Musical 3', but she declined it.
The role was to be Sharpay's mean assistant, Tiara Gold.
In an interview with New York Daily News, Selena explained as to why she turned it down, saying: "'High School Musical 3' is cute, and I think it would be a great opportunity for someone else. I passed on it because I didn't want to do it. I plan to take other roles in acting that are challenging for me. After Disney, I want to be taken seriously as an actress for many years."
Selena began dating, singer, Nick Jonas, in 2008.
The couple started dating just after Nick Jonas and Miley Cyrus had broken up, which caused some tension between the two girls. However, Selena and Nick's relationship only lasted about a year long.
Selena likes to think of her relationship with Nick as "puppy love" since they were relatively young, at the time.
Alright, so you may have known about this one.
But the young Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber, in 2011, confirmed their relationship with Selena at 18 years old and Justin at 16 years old.
They debuted as an official couple at the Vanity Fair Oscar party in February 2011.
However, in 2013, Selena and Justin broke up but had an on-again-off-again relationship.
In 2015, Justin revealed that the main reason why the two split, was due to identity issues. "My identity was in her. Her identity was in me. When stuff would happen, I would lose my freakin' mind, and she would lose her mind, and we would fight so hard because we were so invested in each other."
Selena is tatted up! Well...she has 9 small tattoos...
The most visible ones include: a music note on right side of her wrist, the lowercase letter "g" behind her ear (for baby sister Gracie), the word "Sunshine" on her right foot (for her grandmother), Arabic writing on her back that translates to 'Love yourself, first', "God Who Strengthens Me" on her right hip, Roman Numeral LXXVI of 76 on the back of her neck (her mother was born in 1976), an Om symbol on her left hip.
Most recently, Selena and cast members got a semicolon on their wrists (for '13 Reason Why').
The 9th tattoo is a 'secret' and has never been seen.
Selena started dating The Weeknd (real name Abel Tesfaye) at the beginning of 2017.
In an interview with The Zach Sang Show, she mentioned how she's keeping her relationship private, especially when it comes to influencing her music.
"As much as that has been inspiring, I'm a big advocate for making sure that I'm doing it for me."
