Early years

Selena Marie Gomez was born in Grand Prairie, Texas, on July 22, 1992, to Ricardo Joel Gomez and Texas-born former stage actress Mandy Teefey. Selena Quintanilla, a Tejano singer who died in 1995, inspired her name. Her father is of Mexican descent, and her adopted mother is of Italian ancestry. In the 1970s, Gomez's paternal grandparents moved to Texas from Monterrey, Mexico. Gomez has stated that she is proud of her heritage "a proud third-generation American-Mexican" and "My family does have quinceañeras, and we go to the communion church. We do everything Catholic, but we don't do anything traditional, other than go to the park and have barbecues after church on Sundays." Gomez spoke Spanish fluently until the age of seven. When she was five years old, her parents divorced, and she stayed with her mother. Gracie Elliot Teefey, through Mandy and her second husband, Brian Teefey, and Victoria "Tori" and Marcus Gomez, through Ricardo and his second wife, Sara, are Gomez's two younger half-sisters and stepbrothers. In May 2010, she graduated from high school after homeschooling.

Gomez was born when her mother was sixteen. Throughout Gomez's childhood, the family struggled financially, with her mother struggling to provide for the couple. Gomez recalls having to look for quarters just to get gas for their car at one point. Her mother later recalled the two frequently walking to their neighbourhood dollar store to buy spaghetti for dinner. According to Gomez, "I was angry because my parents weren't together, and I never saw the light at the end of the tunnel, where my mother was working hard to provide a better life for me. I'm afraid of who I'd become if I'd stayed [in Texas]." Her mother, she later added "was extremely powerful around me. Having me at the age of 16 must have been a big responsibility. She gave up everything for me, worked three jobs, supported me, and even gave up her life for me." As a child, Gomez had a close relationship with her grandparents and competed in various pageants. Her grandparents frequently looked after her while her parents finished their education, and she has stated that they "raised her" until she achieved success in show business.

2002-2006: Beginnings of a career

Gomez became interested in pursuing a career in entertainment after witnessing her mother prepare for stage productions. She debuted on the children's television show Barney & Friends in 2002, playing the character Gianna. Her first acting role was in the show. Gomez recalled the incident, "I was very shy as a child and had no idea what 'camera right' meant. I had no idea what blocking was. Barney taught me everything." Between 2002 and 2004, Gomez appeared in thirteen episodes of the show; the show's producers let her go because she was "too old" for the series. Gomez appeared in the film Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over (2003) and the made-for-television film Walker, Texas Ranger: Trial by Fire while working on Barney & Friends (2005). She appeared as a guest star in an episode of The Suite Life of Zack and Cody on the Disney Channel in 2006.

2007-2012: Disney and Selena Gomez & the Scene Breakthrough

In 2007, Gomez was cast as pop star Mikayla in the Disney Channel series Hannah Montana. During this time, Gomez filmed pilot episodes for two potential Disney Channel shows: Arwin!, a Suite Life spin-off, and What's Stevie Thinking?, a Lizzie McGuire spin-off. She later auditioned for the role of Alex Russo in the network's series Wizards of Waverly Place, which she eventually won. Gomez and her mother later relocated to Los Angeles. In Wizards of Waverly Place, Gomez portrayed a teenage girl from a wizard family who owns a restaurant in New York City. The series quickly became a hit for the Disney Channel, and it marked Gomez's break into the mainstream. It received numerous awards and nominations, as well as positive reviews, with Gomez's comic timing and sarcastic delivery receiving special praise.

Gomez voiced Helga in the animated film Horton Hears a Who! while working on the second season of Wizards of Waverly Place (2008). The film was a box office and critical success, grossing nearly $300 million worldwide. Gomez starred as aspiring dancer Mary Santiago in Another Cinderella Story (2008), the second installment of the A Cinderella Story series, which was released on DVD. For the role, she received the Young Artist Award for Best Performance in a TV Movie, Miniseries, or Special - Leading Young Actress. She contributed three songs to the soundtrack, including the single "Tell Me Something I Don't Know," which became her first entry on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the United States. She also recorded "Fly to Your Heart," an original song, for the soundtrack of the animated film Tinker Bell (2008).

Gomez signed a record deal with Hollywood Records when she was 16 years old. In 2008, Gomez founded her own production company, July Moon Productions. She collaborated on the project with XYZ Films, which allowed Gomez to option articles, hire writers, and create talent packages to pitch to studios. Gomez had planned to release two films through the company. The first, titled What Boys Want, would cast Gomez as a girl who can hear men's thoughts. Later, she announced a film adaptation of the novel Thirteen Reasons Why in which she would play a young girl who commits suicide; neither film was produced, but Gomez would later executive produce a television adaptation of Thirteen Reasons Why.

Gomez's mainstream success continued the following year, with her appearance as Alex Russo in a crossover episode of the Disney Channel series The Suite Life on Deck in 2009. She also appeared in the Disney Channel series Sonny with a Chance as herself. Gomez and Demi Lovato co-starred in the June 2009 Disney Channel film Princess Protection Program. During its premiere, the film received 8.5 million viewers. Following that, she starred in Wizards of Waverly Place: The Movie, a television film based on the show. The film debuted in August to 11.4 million viewers, becoming cable's number-one scripted telecast of the year and the second-most watched TV movie on cable, trailing only High School Musical 2. Roxana Hadadi of The Washington Post credited all three performers—Gomez, David Henrie and Jake T. Austin—for their "acting skills that carry the film". At the 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards, the film won the series its second consecutive Emmy for Outstanding Children's Program. Gomez recorded three songs on the television series and film's soundtrack, including the single "Magic". She later played Princess Selenia in Arthur and the Revenge of Maltazard, an English-language French animated/live-action film (2009).

Gomez formed the pop-rock band Selena Gomez & the Scene through her record deal with Hollywood Records in the hopes of breaking into the music industry. The name of the band is a "ironic jab" at the people who called Gomez a "want to be scene". Kiss & Tell, the group's first studio album, was released in August 2009 and debuted at number nine on the Billboard 200 albums chart in the United States, selling 66,000 copies in its first week. Some critics praised the album for its "fun" nature, while others criticized Gomez's vocal performance. Despite the fact that the first single was not commercially successful, the second single, "Naturally," peaked at number twenty-nine in the United States and number seven in the United Kingdom. In July 2010, Gomez co-starred with Joey King in Ramona and Beezus, a film adaptation of Beverly Cleary's children's novel series in which she played Beezus Quimby. The film was well received by critics; Roger Ebert described it as "a sweet salute," and found both actresses "appealing". That same year, Selena Gomez and the Scene released their second studio album, A Year Without Rain, which debuted at number four on the US Billboard 200 with over 66,000 sales. The album received mixed to positive reviews, with some critics dismissing Gomez's Auto-Tuned vocals. The singles from the album, "Round & Round" and "A Year Without Rain," were both moderately successful. In Arthur 3: The War of the Two Worlds, Gomez reprised her role as Princess Selenia.

When the Sun Goes Down, Selena Gomez & the Scene's third and final studio album, was released in June 2011 to mixed reviews. It debuted at number four on the Billboard 200, selling 78,000 copies in its first week, and peaked at number three the following week. "Who Says," the album's lead single, was the band's highest charting effort, peaking at number twenty-one in the United States. Its second single, "Love You Like a Love Song," went on to become the band's best-selling single in the United States, peaking at number 22 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 38 weeks and reaching the top ten in Canada. Billboard ranked the song as the biggest song in 2022, peaking at number twenty-two. Gomez starred in the comedy film Monte Carlo (2011), with Leighton Meester and Katie Cassidy; she played the lead role of Grace, a teenager "mistaken for a socialite", Cordelia (also Gomez), "while on a trip to Paris". In preparation for the role, she learned to play polo and received dialect coaching to speak in two different British accents; Gomez's accent was described as "unconvincing". Critics gave the film mixed reviews. Gomez was described as "cute, but too bland to lend the proceedings any vivid character, except for the few scenes that allow her to indulge her cold, sarcastic, nasty side as Cordelia" by Nick Schager of Slant Magazine. That same year, Gomez made a cameo appearance in the film The Muppets. She hosted the MTV Europe Music Awards in Belfast, Northern Ireland, in November.

Stars Dance and Films 2012-2014

In January 2012, Gomez announced that she would be taking a break from music, putting Selena Gomez & the Scene on hiatus. Wizards of Waverly Place ended its four-season run on the Disney Channel that year. Gomez starred as Mavis in Hotel Transylvania, which premiered at the 37th annual Toronto International Film Festival in September 2012 and was released in theatres the following month to mixed reviews. The film was a financial success, grossing $358 million globally. Gomez appeared in Harmony Korine's controversial exploitation film Spring Breakers (2012), alongside James Franco, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson, and Rachel Korine. The film premiered in September at the 69th Venice International Film Festival and was released the following year. The plot revolved around four college-aged girls who decide to rob a fast food restaurant to fund their spring break. Gomez reportedly had a "bit of a meltdown on set" after playing a more mature character than she had previously. Spring Breakers divided audiences; the film received mostly positive reviews from critics and was named one of the BBC's 100 Greatest Films of the Twenty-First Century. Gomez co-starred with Ethan Hawke in the 2013 action thriller Getaway, in which she played a young hacker. The film was a commercial and critical flop, earning Gomez a nomination for Worst Actress at the 34th Golden Raspberry Awards. Christopher Orr of The Atlantic described her as "a kid trying desperately to act like a grownup, but with no real idea what that might entail". Gomez also served as executive producer and starred in The Wizards Return: Alex vs. Alex, a Disney Channel special (2013).

Despite earlier claims that she would be taking a break from music, Gomez announced the release of her solo debut album in March 2013. As the lead single, Gomez released "Come & Get It" in April 2013. It was Gomez's first top-ten hit on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at number six. The song also charted in the top ten in Canada and the United Kingdom. The second single, "Slow Down," reached number 27 in the United States. Stars Dance was released in July 2013. Musically, the album is rooted in EDM and electropop. It was her first number-one album in the United States, selling 97,000 copies in its first week, and it also reached number one in Canada. Music critics gave it mixed reviews, with some pointing out her inability to forge her own musical identity and dismissing her vocal abilities. Gomez, who was inspired by artists such as Janet Jackson and Britney Spears, incorporated choreographed dance routines into the album's music videos and her promotional live performances. At the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, the video for "Come & Get It" won Best Pop Video.

In August 2013, Gomez launched her Stars Dance Tour. After performing in North America and Europe, Gomez cancelled the tour's Australian and Asian legs in December 2013, claiming she would be taking a break to spend time with her family. Gomez was reported to have spent two weeks at Dawn at The Meadows, a treatment centre in Wickenburg, Arizona that specialises in treating addiction and trauma in young people, in January 2014. Her representative stated that she had spent time there "voluntarily but not for substance abuse". Gomez revealed in 2015 that she had been diagnosed with lupus and that she had entered rehab to undergo chemotherapy after cancelling her tour. In Behaving Badly, Gomez portrayed Nina Pennington, a sweet straight-A student (2014). The film, which was shot prior to Gomez's stint in rehab, was released in August to generally negative critical and commercial reviews. The author of the original autobiographical novel has spoken out against the film. However, critics deemed Gomez's performance superior to the film; Stephen Dalton from The Hollywood Reporter wrote: "Gomez gives the one-dimensional Nina an emotional maturity that deserves a better movie than this". Gomez also appeared as a supporting actor in William H. Macy's directorial debut, Rudderless (2014). The independent film debuted at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival to mixed reviews from critics. Gomez received the Ultimate Choice Award for her "contributions to the entertainment world" at the 2014 Teen Choice Awards.

It was reported in April of that year that Gomez had fired her mother and stepfather, who had served as her managers since the beginning of her career. Gomez later signed contracts with WME and Brillstein to manage her career. The news of Gomez's new management fueled speculation that her contract with Hollywood Records was expiring and that she was looking for a new label. In November 2014, Gomez surprised fans by releasing her new single "The Heart Wants What It Wants," and she confirmed, after months of speculation, that she would be releasing a compilation album to finish out her contract with Hollywood Records. The song became her second top-ten hit in the United States. For You, Gomez's first solo compilation album, was released the same month. The album debuted at number twenty-four on the Billboard 200 in the United States. In December 2014, Gomez officially left Hollywood Records and signed with Interscope Records.

Critics praised the album's production and lyrical content, and it received positive reviews. Brittany Spanos wrote for Rolling Stone that "Revival is an audacious name for a 23-year-old singer's second album, but Gomez earns it from start to finish," adding that "his is the sound of a newly empowered pop artist growing into her strengths like never before." Billboard's Kristen S.Hé called it "one of the most influential pop albums of the late 2010s." The album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 in the United States, selling 117,000 album units in its first week, and was certified platinum by the RIAA. It is Gomez's best-selling first week to date. "Same Old Love," the album's second single, topped the Mainstream Top 40 chart.

Gomez served as executive producer on the Thirteen Reasons Why television adaptation. The series debuted on Netflix in March 2017. The series drew criticism from mental health charities and suicide prevention groups for its "dangerous content," with some viewers believing it glamorised suicide. Gomez addressed the debate, stating that "We stayed very true to the book, which was originally a beautifully tragic, complicated, yet suspenseful story, and I believe that's what we wanted to do. We wanted to do it right, and, yes, [the backlash] was inevitable. It's not an easy subject to broach, but I'm pleased with how things are going. Despite the controversy, the first season was widely regarded as a success. The other three seasons, on the other hand, received generally negative reviews. The most-watched original streaming series in 2018 was 13 Reasons Why.

"Bad Liar" was ranked 39th on Rolling Stone's 2019 list of the best songs of the decade. Winston Cook-Wilson of Spin magazine found Gomez's vocals pristine and the track "charmingly weird", calling its lyrics and sample usage "harebrained but ultimately brilliant". He praised "Bad Liar" for eschewing current radio trends, concluding that "It mostly just sounds like itself, and there's no higher compliment. Two months later, Gomez released the single "Fetish," which featured rapper Gucci Mane. Gomez and EDM producer Marshmello released the single "Wolves" in October 2017.
