Selena Gomez to Form a Band

Selena Gomez may be in the spotlight these days due to her rumored beef with Miley Cyrus, but when it comes to her music, don’t expect to see her center stage. "I'm going to be in a band — no Selena Gomez stuff," she told MTV. "I'm not going to be a solo artist. I think that I don't want my name attached to it." So much so that the tween superstar plans to take a backseat at some of the live shows. Rather than crooning on the microphone all the time, you can also expect to see her rocking out with live instruments. So far, she’s learned the drums and the electric guitar. Apparently she’s trying to separate herself from the over-saturation of tween pop acts (most of which are her bff’s). "You know the [Jonas] boys and people like Demi [Lovato] are my friends, so I definitely would not copy or do anything that they did. They're really good, obviously, at what they're doing, so I'm going to let them have that. But it's also just kind of fun to learn things," she told MTV.

So will Selena be forming the next great American band? Let’s not hold our breaths. What we are hoping for, however, is a corny romantic ballad with Nick Jonas to finally prove the rumors true. Come on, they could soooo be the Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey of this generation!

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
