Selena Gomez doesn’t have a lot of secrets. That is for sure. She is one of our biggest stars, her career as an actress and as a singer are both going extremely well. But just like any big star, she has been around for a long time in the public eye, and people talk about her. They talk about her a lot. So with that said there must be things Selena wishes that her fans, and the general public, would forget all about.
We aren’t talking about things like going out with Justin Bieber of course. Although she might just wish that people would forget about that, she has to face some sort of reality. We are talking more about those little things that aren’t necessarily big scandals, but rather moments in her young career that you know she just wishes people would totally forget about.
Well good luck with that Selena, you are one of the world’s biggest stars, so it is pretty unlikely that people will just forget, and if they do there are always articles out there, just like this one, to remind them.
Here are 10 Things That Selena Gomez Wants You To Forget
10. PETA Was Mad At Her
There is no doubt whatsoever that Selena wishes that we all would forget about this one. For those who don’t remember, PETA stands for the People For the Ethical Treatment of Animals. They got upset about a video featuring Selena which showcased horses that were spray painted pink. PETA accused her and the video of being cruel to the animals. Of course Selena, who actually loves animals and has a bunch of dogs, wouldn’t roll with something like that. The paint was vegetable base and could be removed with water.
9. That Time She Fell Off The Stage
This wasn’t as bad as it sounds. Selena was on stage, jumping around and having a great time when she jumped right off the stage by mistake. She got right back up and laughed about it, but still it’s never fun to fall off the stage in front of thousands live, and then have millions of people view it over the internet. There is no doubt at all that Selena wishes that we would all forget about this embarrassing moment.
8. She Was A Sears Model
We all know about the whole Barney thing, and Selena might not mind a whole lot about people remembering that. She was just a cute little kid after all. But what about her being a teen and being the cover girl for Sears? That one, I bet, she wouldn’t mind if people forgot about. Sears is simply not very cool and the clothes she wore were not happening at all. But in 2009, Selena was all over the Sears Back to School Catalog, and that is never going to go away.
7. Selena Loves Pickles
She loves pickles a lot. Maybe she doesn’t care all that much considering she even tweets about shipping pickles to herself from home, but one would think she would want people to forget just how much she LIKES them. Her extreme fascination is quite strange. She has even said pickles are what she misses most from her hometown. “I miss getting pickles at the movie theaters,” admitted the Disney actress-singer. “They don’t have it here [in LA]. It’s salt and sour, it just works. You eat it [the popcorn] at the same time.” She went on stating, “I’ve tried to get it here, but I’ve had the manager and people come out and they look at me like I’m crazy. So from now on, I just put a pickle in a paper bag and slip it in my purse and I’m happy.”
6. Huge Crush On Shia LeBeouf
This was before Shia Labeouf became well known for acting like a drunk fool in public rather than being an actor. At one time Selena had a huge crush on him. We tend to forget that these people who are big stars still are just teenagers, with teenage crushes. When she finally got a chance to meet him she just spurted out “I admire you” and then ran from the room. I guess it is slightly possible that Selena wants people to remember an embarrassing crush she had on a guy that turned into a bit of a drunk, but somehow we doubt it.
5. She Had Two Failed TV Pilots
Disney had big plans for Selena after discovering her in 2004. First she was cast in the Suite Life of Zack and Cody, then she was a regular on Hannah Montana with Miley Cyrus. By the way, have there ever been two bigger stars together on a show like that? It appeared she was on her way to stardom, but then she had two spin-off show pilots flop and not get picked up before she got the role on Wizards of Waverly Place.
4. Selena Dated Nick Jonas
Speaking of Miley Cyrus, she and Selena have something else in common, something other than being starring on Hannah Montana. What might that be you may ask? Well, they both ended up dating Nick Jonas. Now no matter what the situation is, going out with a friend’s ex-boyfriend is never a good thing. You just don’t do it unless you are trying to turn the screws a little bit. Selena and Nick went out for quite a while, so there had to have been something there, but still going out with Miley’s ex? That has to be something that Selena wishes that we all would forget.
3. Ran Away From Jennifer Aniston
Remember the scene earlier when Selena freaked out in front of Shia LaBeouf? Well it turns out that it isn’t just famous guys she acts silly in front of, it is famous women too. When Selena bumped into Jennifer Aniston, she turned and ran away. Smooth move, Selena. Selena said later she is a huge fan of Aniston’s and when she saw her she got so nervous that she was “terrified”. Being terrified of Jennifer Aniston and running away? Yeah we are pretty sure that is something she wants us to forget.
2. She Has Lupus
This one is kind of sad. Although Lupus is not life threatening, it is a serious auto-immune disease that can really affect people’s lives. The fact that Selena gets as much done as she does, and works as hard as she does, is really a testament to how strong she really is. There are treatments to help with Lupus, but it can’t be cured so she will be dealing with it forever. She treated it with chemotherapy and hopefully it is in remission now, but we are sure that Selena just wishes this is something that would go away and that she wouldn’t have to talk about publicly.
1. Her Role In Getaway
We are sure she would love it if people would forget about this one. The movie Selena starred in called Getaway was a complete dud, with a bad script, that got really bad reviews. and there also were some bad actors in it. One of them was Selena. She was so bad in this role that she was nominated for a Razzle award, as the worst actress for her role in the movie. She wasn’t named the worst actress, but I am sure being nominated was enough. Without a shadow of a doubt, Getaway is something I am sure Selena wishes people would forget about.
