Have you seen the Playboy magazine March 2013 cover, allegedly of Selena Gomez, making its rounds on the internet? The cover shows what looks like a topless Selena in a scandalous pose, and has rumors flying about its validity. Is this another example of a Disney starlet gone wild?
Nope! The cover is totally photoshopped, as discussed by the women on The View this morning. Selena (along with fellow Disney-grown star, Miley Cyrus) was reportedly offered $2 million for a Playboy spread, but the actress/singer does not seem interested in the offer.
Selena is starring in the scandalous new film, Spring Breakers (along with another Disney diva, Vanessa Hudgens, and Pretty Little Liars star Ashley Benson). The movie, a gritty take on self-indulgent and out-of-control youth culture, has everyone talking about the transition in image for its young stars, many of whom gained fame with conservative, squeaky clean personas.
So, it looks like the “Disney Girl Gone Wild” narrative doesn’t apply to Selena in real life. We have to admit, we’re glad it’s not actually her. It’s nice to see the young superstar considering her young fanbase while still taking chances and coming into her own. She even told The Hollywood Reporter that she is worried about her younger fans sneaking into see the R-rated Breakers.
“Honestly, it’s been a weird transition,” Selena told The Hollywood Reporter. “You never really know what’s right or wrong and you can only do the best you can.” Well said, Selena!
