Sweet role model
SELENA Gomez isn’t the most famous teen star of her generation but she may just be the sweetest. Beautiful, talented and in possession of a Unicef-certified heart of gold, Gomez has turned into a true role model for young people.
“I just think that we’re the next generation up. And it’s our job to spread the word about everything going on in the world,” says the Wizards Of Waverly Place star when asked why she’s so committed to Trick-or-Treat For Unicef, a campaign that encourages kids to raise money on Halloween for underprivileged children around the world.
Now, 18, Gomez is as dedicated to the programme as she was when she became Unicef’s youngest ever ambassador, in August 2009.
Naturally, it’s hard to make time for philanthropy when one also has a new Billboard Top 10 album ( A Year Without Rain) as well as new TV season (the fourth season of Wizards kicks off next month in the United States) to think about, but knowing the lass, she’ll find a way.
For more on Gomez, check out the Oct 1731 issue of Galaxie.
Also in this issue of Galaxie, we read about what drove American Idol Fantasia Barrino to contemplate suicide. “I felt like it was never going to end for me. I just felt tired, tired, tired,” says Barrino of that point in time when she was ready to throw in the towel.
Great features aside, the current issue of the magazine also features awesome contests. We have 160 movie passes for The Social Network to give away, invites to the Flyniversary Party happening on Nov 6 at KL Live in Kuala Lumpur, and loads of other goodies.
