Selena Gomez: I'll surprise you


Selena Gomez has "a few surprises coming up."

The 22-year-old made her transition from TV into music and film with ease and is currently promoting her latest movie, Rudderless. The role sees Selena starting to move away from her career beginnings as a Disney star, which is all part of her plan. "Lately, I've been begging people to just take an audition with me," she told Entertainment Tonight before hinting that her requests have paid off. "I've got a few surprises coming up. Within the next two months I think people will be seeing some stuff that I've been working on the past year." Rudderless is actor William H. Macy's directorial debut and focuses on a dad who builds up the courage to perform his dead son's music in a bid to feel closer to him.

‘I've got a few surprises coming up.’

Selena explained that it was the quality of the script and the actors she got to work with that drew her to the production.

"[The script] is extremely touching. It's amazing," she said. "And I want to be part of a cast that I can learn from. I think that’s important for me."

In the film, Selena plays Kate, the ex-girlfriend of the deceased son, whose life has been turned upside down by tragedy. She stars alongside Felicity Huffman, Laurence Fishburne and Billy Crudup.

On the red carpet of the film's premiere in Los Angeles last night The Come & Get It singer also revealed that a relocation could be one of her 'surprises', particularly as a close friend is encouraging her to make a move.

"I'd love to spend time in New York, I've always said that I want to have a love affair and live there," she told E! News. "Taylor [Swift] has been begging me to live there. She's like, 'It's the best decision I've ever made.' Everyone always says I'm more New York when they meet me so maybe it would be good for me. I don't spend enough time there."
