Long Distance Friendships can be tough, but these celebs prove you can keep in touch no matter the distance. Whether you’re going to different schools or one of you is moving away, steal these celeb LDR secrets to help you and your BFF stay tight.
Selena Gomez & Ashley Cook
IT’S NEVER TOO LATE TOO RECONNECT. Selena Gomez and BFF-turned-personal-assistant have a lot of history. The two Texas natives were friends growing up, but lost touch once Selena moved to LA. But the pair reconnected and have been inseparable ever since! Some friendships drift apart for no particular reason. But that doesn’t mean they’ll stay that way forever. True friendships are ones where you can drift apart and then come back together. So don’t panic if you go off to different colleges or your friend moves away, and you feel more like strangers for awhile. It doesn’t mean you can’t get that close friendship back. And if you really miss a friend you’ve lost touch with, don’t feel weird about sending her a Facebook message to let her know how much you miss her. Chances are, she’s feeling the same!
Between success, heartbreak, family expansion (she’s now a big sister to little sister Gracie, born in June!) and huge milestones, 2013 has been a memorable year for Selena Gomez. It wouldn’t be a stretch to refer to her as one of the biggest stars of the past twelve months. The twenty-one year old, who found her start and dedicated fan base on Barney and the Disney Channel, has dipped her feat in almost every area over the last fifty-two weeks. From movies and a return to Disney Channel to the studio, top of the charts and stages all over the world, Selena has definitely quadrupled her Frequent Flyer Miles.
For every young adult, leaving the teen years and entering adulthood is a scary transition that often results in many questions. Who are you supposed to be? What’s appropriate? Who do you have to impress? Is being “you” enough? In a recent interview with Teen Vogue, Selena Gomez revealed she’s been constantly asking herself these questions. The music and movie star said, “I’m 21, so now I’ve entered this decade of confusion about who I am and what I want to do with my life, and that’s what this entire decade’s going to be.” Props to you, Selena, keep trying to figure yourself out!
While it’s obvious some people love to hate Selena, it seems more are cheering her on and supporting the brunette beauty as she chases her dreams. Selena started her year with a return to Disney Channel and a couple of controversial appearances on the big screen. For Gomez, Disney Channel and her hit show “Wizards of Waverly Place” was the ideal comfort zone so it didn’t really come as a shock when she took the initiative to head back to the set where she felt safest.Airing in March, Selena starred in “The Wizards Return: Alex vs. Alex” before closing the Disney chapter of her life and moving onto roles that would spark headlines and criticism.
Selena will also perform with her Stars Dance Tour in Shanghai, CN!
Pop star Selena Gomez will be headed to Singapore in 2014!
Selena rose to international fame when she landed the lead role of Alex Russo in Disney Channelsitcom Wizards of Waverly Place in 2007. Since then, she has established herself as an actress with lead roles in several movies such as Ramona & Beezus, Monte Carlo and more recently, Spring Breakers.
Proving that she’s more than just a pretty face and a good actress, Selena broke into the music scene with her band Selena Gomez & the Scene. Selena Gomez & the Scene released a total of three studio albums, all of which have attained platinum status in various countries. The 21 year old Texan recently embarked on a solo music career of her own following the band’s hiatus. Selena released her debut solo album Stars Dance to critical acclaim and commercial success as the star earned her first US Billboard 200 chart #1.
For the first time ever, Selena will be touring the world — the Stars Dance world tour kicked off in Canada in August 2013, which has taken her all over North America and Europe. The tour will resume in January 2014, which will see her perform in Asia, Oceania and South America. Selena Gomez will be popping by Singapore for a one-night-only concert on January 27, 2014 (Monday), where fans can party the night away and slow down the sun with the talented star.
UNCONFIRMED: Pop/reggae band Emblem3 might be opening for Selena Gomez at this show.
Don’t forget that Selena will be performing a 3 song medley with a run time of about 6 minutes at the Thanksgiving Half-time show in Arlington, Texas today (November 28th)! The show will air live at 4:30pm EST/3:30 CST so be sure to tune in.
ARLINGTON — All the players will have to be in perfect formation, and every second will count at AT&T Stadium Thursday afternoon.
And that’s just for the halftime show.
This year’s star is Grand Prairie native Selena Gomez. Her Thanksgiving performance marks the 17th year the Cowboys have teamed up with the Salvation Army for the charity’s kickoff of its Red Kettle campaign.
Her three-song medley, which will be six minutes long, has taken months of preparation.
Although Gomez was announced as the halftime performer earlier this month, Charlotte Jones Anderson, the Cowboys’ chief brand officer, said organizers have known since spring.
The Cowboys aim for something different each year, and someone who can spread the Salvation Army’s message to a wide array of people.
Pop singer Gomez will give fans a much different show than last year’s performer, country star Kenny Chesney, Anderson said.
“I think people have come to have a high expectation of what the show is, and we’re excited to have a pop performer, which is different for us,” she said.
The choreography and set design also will be different this year.
In the 19-minute extended halftime during Thursday’s game, crews must bring the set onto the field, assemble it before the performance begins and then disassemble it in time for the Cowboys and the Oakland Raiders to get back to action.
Every second matters. If they run over time, the Cowboys will face fines from the NFL.
Stephen Dahlem, senior creative director for Dallas-based Corporate Magic, said the company has partnered with the Cowboys for the last 13 years to produce the halftime show. He and his 150-member crew rehearsed all week.
“I can’t imagine a Thanksgiving without football and performances,” he said.
Most of Monday’s rehearsal was spent building the set over and over and taking it on and off the field again and again.
On game day, a flag corps made up of area high school and college students will also perform, as will, of course, the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders.
“It is a very complicated process that is under a gun with no room for failure,” Anderson said. “This is live TV.”
The equipment usually comes out of one tunnel, while crew members come through another, to make sure no one collides on the field.
After Gomez’s world tour stop Tuesday night in Detroit, she arrived in Dallas on Wednesday for a dress rehearsal. That’s when “all the puzzle pieces come together,” Dahlem said.
Fans are sure to enjoy this year’s performance, he said, though he teased that he’s keeping some details secret.
“It’s going to make great TV.”
