Gomez goes stargazing on our shores
US singer Selena Gomez (pictured) will tour Australia for the first time when she brings her Stars Dance show to tour shores in February. ‘‘I went on the road in Australia with my ex-boyfriend (Justin Bieber),’’ Gomez, 21, says. ‘‘I loved it. That’s why I secretly wanted to extend this tour, to make sure I could go to Australia. I didn’t get to do much last time. I’m probably going to be a complete tourist this time around.’’ The boyfriend in question was Bieber; that Australian tour two years ago was at the height of their relationship. Gomez’s first Australian tour follows her Top 10 album Stars Dance. Gomez says the tour channels the Janet Jackson and Britney Spears highenergy dance shows she idolised. ‘‘I get to dance my heart out,’’ the ex-Disney star says. ‘‘I am loving it.’’
Selena Gomez plays the Brisbane Convention Centre on February 6. Tickets go on sale on November 22.
