Selena Gomez: My acting needs work

Expect to see Selena Gomez on the big screen as often as you'll see her on stage.

The 21-year-old star told CNN that while she enjoys bouncing between her singing career and her acting career and is at ease with both, it's her acting that she's dead set on improving.

"I just think I need to get better at acting," Gomez said. "And in order to do that, I need to do more of it."

That's understandably difficult when she's trying to promote a new album, but Gomez is pulling it off: she'll next appear alongside Ethan Hawke and Jon Voight in the August 30 action thriller "Getaway" while also working on her tour.

"I feel like music was really such a great outlet for me. It's therapeutic, it's so much fun," Gomez explained. "Obviously being able to be on stage and dance around, it's awesome, and you just have a good time and the adrenaline's taking over. But I have to do more (acting) to get better so I want to do that. It's like my own personal thing."

On Sunday, Gomez won't be performing or acting - she'll be presenting at the MTV Video Music Awards.

    Music and acting are both dead industries for the newbies out there. 2 chord songs and limited "Twilight" acting are all that are required from folks these days. I think if kids had to study these days, they would implode.

    Don't worry Selena, we never thought you could act. You're cute with a perky little body, that is all anyone is looking at, no one ever noticed or cared about your lack of acting ability

    WOW, it's amazing how many people should really not be allowed on the Internet. This a beautiful girl who has been working almost her entire life. She does not deserve the horrid kinds of comments some of you losers are sending her way. It Speaks bad of CNN that most of you are allowed to post on these forums again.

    I'm not sure what the Internet has done to some of you sad little children was worth the improvements it has made to the world.

    We need to plant chips in everyones head and if more than 10 people think your being a Douch online then we should be able to click a button and at 10 negative feed backs it shocks the stupid right out of your heads. Some people will never be respectful decent human beings without consequences being dished out for bad behavior.

      You are so correct, Mike. TESTIFY. You people disgust me. Selena is a beautiful, talented young woman. She will bare her tiddies and nether-region lady parts for the world to see when she's damn good and ready. Hopefully sooner than later.

      John, moron, it 's always about money with small minded and probably small packaged idiots like you, isn't it? Nevermind the fact that she's a lousy singer and novice actress, not to to mention that if the media touts someone enough, morons like you will buy their crap. So, John the moron, forget the fact that no actor/actress/songer these days does a damned thing to justify the money they make. Tell me, John the moron, what have you done to justify your holiermthan thou comment?
