You may think that Selena Gomez has always had it made but in reality you could not be further from the truth. Like any individual that has enjoyed a lot of success, regardless of age, you first must endure some failures and shortcomings.
The starlet recently dished to Top of the Pops,
“When I was 11, I had a casting director say to me, ‘You’re not strong enough to carry your own show. You’re not strong enough to be part of the Disney Channel,’” she revealed. ”I cried all the time afterwords but I just kept on working hard.”
Selena added, “Whenever you have a goal, whether you want to be a doctor or a singer, people will find a way to bring you down. I always tell people that if you have something you’re really passionate about, don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do it.”
Excellent advice, Sel!
