They play a group of college girls hungry for adventure while vacationing in Florida with thousands of other college kids. The experience was well outside her Disney upbringing.
“I don’t think I’ve even had a spring break,” she told the magazine. “I had to have someone show me how to hold a cigarette. Harmony was like, ‘It’s good that you don’t know. Maybe that’s a character trait!’”
The feature, entitled, “Rebel Yell” is shot by photographer M.S. Jarrett and styled by Daniela Jung. Make-up artist Karan Mitchell give Gomez a sultry edge by layering on loads of black liner and mascara, according to the magazine.
Her eye lids were shaded in gray and blue eye shadow and her long hair was twisted in to a disheveled “devil-may-care” look.
According to everyone on the shoot, Gomez was a dream to work with. “She was super down-to-earth and absolutely lovely,” says Jung.
When, lunch was delayed, Gomez herself slipped out to Carl Jr.’s and bought everyone burgers, according to the magazine.
Selena has been going through some rough sledding lately over her break up with Justin Bieber. “Been through a lot the past few months. It’s been weird and sad and cool,” she said recently.
Bieber will release his latest album, Believe Acoustic today (Jan. 31). The set contains three new tracks, one of which, “Nothing Like Us,” is Bieber’s ode to Gomez. She is reportedly also writing songs about him for her upcoming album.
