On the Scene: Selena’s Early Life and Breakthrough

On July 22, 1992, a little Texan entered the world named Selena Marie Gomez. Based on her name alone, she was destined for fame. It pays tribute to another legendary Selena, the Tejano icon, Selena Quintanilla-Pérez. Selena (the Texan) got her foot in the showbiz door when she was just a 10-year-old, scoring a gig as cute-as-button “Gianna” on the ’90s kiddie-favorite Barney & Friends between 2002 and 2004.

Being the go-getter she is, Selena soon started getting her hands dirty with small parts in flicks like Spy Kids 3: Game Over and Walker, Texas Ranger: Trial by Fire. But let’s fast-forward to 2007, when life really kicked into warp speed for Selena. She packed up and moved to L.A., shortlisted to star as lovable “Alex Russo” on Disney’s Wizards of Waverly Place. Naturally, the show was a hit, taking Selena from Barney’s buddy to America’s sweetheart overnight.

Now, Selena had sights beyond the acting realm. In 2009, she unleashed her vocal prowess on the world and formed her band Selena Gomez & the Scene. They took off faster than a rocket, with chart-smashers like “Naturally”, “Who Says”, and “Love You Like A Love Song”. Pumping out three albums—Kiss & Tell, A Year Without Rain, and When the Sun Goes Down—from 2009 to 2012, Gomez stamped her name on the music scene.

Wizards & Monsters: Selena’s Earnings From Her Primary Career

A big chunk of Selena Gomez’s earnings come, unsurprisingly, from her career in TV and music. Her turn as the sassy “Alex Russo” on Wizards of Waverly Place drew $30,000 an episode, which added up to over $3 million from the 106 episodes she starred in from 2007 to 2013.

At the same time, Selena was totally killing it in the music scene. Speaking of “the scene”, that was the name of Selena’s band. They totally rocked from 2009 until they called it quits in 2012. But it was her solo gigs that really padded out her wallet. Like, her “Stars Dance Tonight” tour in 2013–2014? That bagged $35.3 million. On top of that, her “Revival” tour in 2016 pulled in another sweet $35.6 million.

All the while, Gomez acted, whether in person or voice. For instance, she lent her vocals to the animated film series Hotel Transylvania. She rocked it so much they paid her an estimated $4.5 million for its recent installment, Hotel Transylvania: Transformania in 2022. And her role in the TV series Only Murders in the Building, which started in 2021, sorts her about $600,000 for each episode.

A Rare Breed: Selena’s Other Revenues

On top of crushing it in music and acting, Selena Gomez has been making some serious moves as an entrepreneur. Would you just believe that in 2020, she released her own makeup line? Called Rare Beauty, the brand promotes self-love and mental health awareness. As of April 2023, Rare Beauty was rollin’ in $60 million in revenue.

But why stop at one venture when you can have two? Gomez also snapped up a piece of the New York-based ice cream brand, Serendipity. Yes, this multi-talented lady co-owns an ice cream brand that raked in a cool (get it? Cos it’s ice cream money!) $16 million in annual revenue back in 2020.

She also has time to work with other brands like Puma and Coach, who obviously know a good thing when they see it. Puma paid $30 million for a two-year endorsement back in 2017, while Coach agreed to a $10-million partnership in 2016.

Plus, being a social media goddess has its perks. In 2022, Selena pulled in approximately $1,468,000 just from her sponsored Instagram posts. Such is the influence she wields on the social media site.

Selena’s Stuff and Social Service

Starting off in L.A, Selena has a jaw-dropping 11,500 sq. ft. mansion in Encino she nabbed in 2020 for $4.9 million. Her first property, though, was in Tarzana, a trendy part of the San Fernando Valley, scored in 2011. Ultra chic, contemporary style, 6 bedrooms, and 8 bathrooms. She didn’t stop at just California, she went back to Texas in 2015 and bought a pretty unique property, which she then sold off in 2018 (Brit+Co). This baby was all about the stone and masonry work – totally different vibe.

Few years later in 2017, she picked up a place in Studio City—and this one wasn’t like her earlier pads. Think 1951-built and rustic feels, totally revamped. And, at some point, she even went back and bought up her first home, the one she grew up in in Grand Prairie. When she wants to experience the bright lights of the big city, she has her swanky flat in NYC’s glamorous Upper East Side to luxuriate in.

But, it’s not just about the house game. Selena’s also about giving back in a big way. She set up the Rare Impact Fund, which hopes to raise $100 million over the next decade for mental health services and education for the next generation. On top of that, since 2009, she has served as a UNICEF ambassador, doing great work for children worldwide.

Lupus & Love: Selena’s Personal Life

Selena Gomez was born to young parents, Mandy and Ricardo. They split up when Selena was just five, though the divorce introduced her later to a half-sibling on each side and a stepbrother through her dad.

Selena’s mom, Mandy, is also living the La La Land life. She’s got her own production business, Kicked to the Curb Productions, and was one of the producers on the Netflix series 13 Reasons Why, where Selena also got her producing props. They also teamed up for the 2020 movie The Broken Hearts Gallery.

Selena’s love life has had its share of paparazzi action, mostly thanks to her on-again-off-again relationship with pop heartthrob Justin Bieber. Being on Bieber-watch from December 2010 to March 2018, fed the media a tasty dish. Selena also enjoyed a headline-hogging romance with the Weeknd (a.k.a. Abel Tesfaye) for most of 2017.

But it’s not all been glam and love stories, Selena got real in 2015 when she opened up about her battle with lupus, an debilitating autoimmune disease. This led to a kidney transplant in 2017, with her friend and real-life hero, Francia Raisa, coming to the rescue as a donor.

Pursuits and Lawsuits: Major Events in Selena’s Life

In 2011, a 46-year-old mentally ill man had seriously scary thoughts about doing harm to Selena. She was able to breathe a sigh of relief when she got a temporary restraining order to keep him away.

In 2022, she had to bring her legal team on board to deal with some game developers who ripped off her look in their game Clothes Forever – Styling Game. She slapped them with a $10-million lawsuit, adamant that no one could violate her image rights.

And it’s not only physical health she’s tackled; Selena has been open about her fights with anxiety and depression. In 2022, she really stepped up as a mental health warrior by launching her platform Wondermind, aiming to make mental health discussions a lot less taboo.

Checking out the story so far, it’s clear that Selena Gomez is a rockstar when it comes to overcoming adversity. Every challenge she’s faced has just made her stronger, both on stage and off, inspiring others with her honesty and advocacy work. For this, she nabbed the 2022 Morton E. Ruderman Award in Inclusion from the Ruderman Family Foundation in Boston. With her uplifting influence and strength, Selena Gomez embodies what stardom and resilience really mean.
