Selena quitting music


Selena Gomez will quit singing to focus on acting.

The 20-year-old singer plans to take an extended break from music after her Stars Dance world tour this summer in order to concentrate on her film career, which took off last year thanks to her role in comedy-drama Spring Breakers.

Asked whether she had plans to stop singing, she said, "Yeah, probably for a while. I wanna get more into film. I'm open to trying new things.

"I just did an action movie and a dark comedy and then a drama so I've been able to do really fun projects that are different."

The brunette star also teased with some details of her super-secretive tour, revealing her biggest priority is to get into shape in order to keep up with the energetic dance routines she has planned.

She explained in a live video “hangout” with French radio station NRJ, "This is my first world tour so I definitely need to get in shape; that's the first thing I need to do. But it's always been my dream to tour the world and actually give myself to my fans [which is the kind of] show they deserve.

"There's no planned [guests] right now. Just for this tour overall I'm doing a lot more dancing which I didn't really do on my last tour; the costumes are going to be a lot more detailed. Basically I'm going to be performing the whole new record."

Selena also said she hasn't yet chosen a support act for the European leg of her tour, and is open to suggestion for talented singers or bands.

She said, "I have Emblem 3 who are from the X Factor in America; in Europe we actually haven't picked an opener yet so am open to suggestions!"
