Selena Gomez Is Growing Up

Selena Gomez is really tired of people thinking she’s still a squeaky clean Disney princess. It’s kind of ironic that she has had a rough time shedding her little girl image, especially considering the fact that she still occasionally connects with Justin Bieber who is clearly on a downward spiral.  This is a girl that runs around in a bikini in the dark, edgy Spring Breakers and was rumored to have run a train with the entire Brick Squad and still her image is golden.

Not that it’s a bad thing, but obviously Selena is no longer even a teen and is smart enough to know that the key to longevity will be moving into adult roles and being seen like a grown woman that’s a sexual being. According to Hope Carson over at Gather, a mock-up Playboy cover of Selena that has hit the web is clearly photoshopped but it makes me wonder, is that a career move that’s totally out of the question for her? I mean Hugh Hefner has supposedly dangled a 2 million dollar payday in front of Selena and maybe, eventually, she’ll opt to cash in.

Loads of young stars before her have used Playboy as a vehicle to further their careers and if it’s done tastefully, why not? Hef’s mag is considered the classiest of the bunch and many women that have posted have considered it to be one of the best experiences of their lives.

Do you think Selena will ever land in the page turner?  After some of her latest press, I have to think that Selena isn’t exactly uncomfortable in her own skin and might actually be empowered by the whole experience. Should Selena pose or should she keep her clothes on and stay the course? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
