Gomez is one of a number of former Disney stars who are trying to cross over to a more adult style now that they are out on their own. She’s been one of the most conservative so far in her dress and attitude. Former Disney queen Miley Cyrus, on the other hand, has experimented with sexy, rock star looks.
Gomez boyfriend Justin Bieber, 17, is also changing his look. He’s been steadily adding tattoos. He’s latest, however, is religious. He had a portrait of Jesus tattooed on the back of his calf.
In Latin American, fans are used to seeing pop stars dress in exotic, barely there costumes. So, Selena may be just trying to meet their expectations. She launches her tour on Jan. 22 in San Juan, Puerto Rico. From there, she’ll head to Panama City, Mexico City, Lima, Peru and Santiago, Chile. She also has dates scheduled for Rio de Janerio, Sao Paolo, Cordoba, and Buenos Aires.
