Selena Gomez in Nepal

Selena Gomez visits Nepal

Selena Gomez is heading in the right direction as she embarked on a trip to Nepal as an Ambassador with UNICEF.

She said, ‘At first when you witness children living in extreme poverty you wonder how it is possible that they can be deprived of their basic human needs and rights. Then you talk to these children and you see hope, promise and a bright future.

‘I’m so proud to serve as a UNICEF Ambassador and be part of a greater movement to help the world’s children’

On her third trip with the charity;  she has previously been to Ghana and Chile, she visited various villages to meet with young people trying to make a difference.

She calling the trip an ‘eye-opener,’ Gomez said: ‘The children of Nepal have taught me that with a lot of passion, optimism and hard work, anything is possible. That’s the message I would like to convey to young people across the world. Believe in your dreams and pursue them.’

Meanwhile, Gomez’s grandparents have talked about her relationship with 20-year-old Baby crooner Justin Bieber.

Her grandfather Ricardo Gomez said: ‘We worry, we think she still loves him.

Hanging with the family during visits to Ricardo and his wife Mary’s Texas home, Bieber quickly bonded with the couple, even earning the nickname ‘flaco,’ or Spanish for ‘slim’.

‘He was just a nice little fella,’ Ricardo says. ‘Totally different from what he is right now,  It just makes me feel upset because he used to be a real nice boy.’

‘We worry not just because of the relationship with Selena, we worry for him. We don’t like to see him in trouble’ Ricardo continues referring to Bieber’s recent incidents of very public bad behaviour and DUI arrest in January.

The last time Selena spoke about the relationship he said: ‘Selena was telling us that she didn’t want to be with him because of what he was doing lately, and that he was getting into drugs and that was something that she don’t like.

‘We blame it on the people they hang around with, his friends are bad influences.’

Ricardo then said: ‘We’d be happy if Justin proposed because she’s happy with him. She knows that whatever she decides to do, I mean we stay behind her.’

‘I say to her, ‘You’re a pretty, young lady, you know what you want; Whatever you like, I mean just go for it,” he says. ”We’re not going to get in your life that way, it’s too private.”

The Disney star has previously talked of her Catholic upbringing, regularly attending church services with her family every Sunday.

‘Selena is trying to change her ways by going to church and more to avoid going to rehab. She feels like she has a spiritual gap and that maybe that’s why she is struggling,’

Selena Gomez ‘took some time for herself’ in Arizona’s The Meadows treatment facility in January, spending two weeks at the centre, which treats people aged 18 to 26 who are ‘struggling with emotional trauma, addiction or dual diagnosis concerns’.

At the time, her draining on-again, off-again romance with troubled singer Justin Bieber was cited as one of the reasons for her rehab stint.

Selena Gomez puts her Tarzana property up for sale

Selena Gomez has just listed her Tanzana, California, house for sale but she will hardly be out on the street, as it is just her spare estate.

The 21-year-old pop star also has a mansion in the nearby area of Calabasas, so has decided to offload the six bedroom home.

The songstress first purchased the house for $2.75 million but now the star has the 6,630 square-feet ranch style property on the market for $3.495 million.

The home certainly offers lots to the right buyer, as the property is like a number of mini houses in one, featuring multiple designer appointed wings perfect for guests or extended entourages.

Despite the house being subject to a stalker scares,  when a family member caught an 19-year-old man allegedly lurking near the property, the Agency’s lists new security measures put in place by the star as one of the key assets of the property.

According to the listing, the house has ‘secure private gates surround the entire one acre flat property’.

But the new owners will certainly not feel like they are imprisoned, block also boasts designer landscaped outdoor spaces.

 

 

 

Selena Gomez at iHeartRadio Awards 2014

Selena Gomez arriving solo at iHeartRadio Music Awards

Selena Gomez was without off-again boyfriend Justin Bieber as she attended the first annual iHeartRadio Music Awards at LA’s Shrine Auditorium on Thursday.

Following a bad few weeks in which she reportedly had a falling out with Kendall and Kylie Jenner, ditched all her celebrity pals on Instagram and called it quits with Justin Bieber, the star also chose not to walk the red carpet but rather sneak in quietly through the back entrance.

Indeed, Selena appeared a little out of sorts as the cameras caught up with her backstage before she presented an award during the evening’s festivities.

Justin chose that same night to send a message to Selena’s pop rival Ariana Grande, who is labelmates with Bieber on Scooter Braun’s School Boy Records.

‘congrats @arianagrande on your number 1 song. #arianabieberduet ??’ he captioned a flashback photo of himself in a recording studio with the pocket rocket.

The 20-year-old’s new single, Problem, featuring Australian singer Iggy Azalea, topped the iTunes charts upon its release on Monday and is already holding steady at number one in as many as 22 countries.

Selena Gomez Gets Super Emotional Covering Corinne Bailey Rae

 

Selena Gomez, who recently deleted every single friend she followed on Instagram, is kicking it up a few more notches today, as she posted a pair of clips covering singe, songwriter Corinne Bailey Rae’s 2005 debut, “Like A Star.”

Fans speculate the source of Gomez’s anguish could be credited to her boyfriend Justin Bieber. Rae’s “Like A Star” speaks to the pain of a destructive romance, the kind of love that that runs its course like a roller-coaster with exuberant highs and crushing lows.

Later in the day, Selena visited her pastor, Judah Smith, and appears to be attending his “Jesus Is” tour tonight in Atlanta. She posted a photo on Instagram, captioned, “Love my pastor and his family so much! Don’t know what I would do without them. @judahsmith Jesus Is tour!”
