Rising star Selena Gomez is looking nothing short of stunning in the July issue of Elle magazine.
Us Weekly has released photos and interview snippets from the forthcoming spread. The 19-year-old singer and actress radiates pure glamour on the cover photo in a sheer black strapless corset top, adorned with gold flowers, and a red-lipped pouty stare.
Inside the magazine, she’s all sexed up sprawling out in the sun in a red bustier crop top, and she looks totally hot.
For her musical and fashion inspiration, Gomez sites Jennifer Lopez and her portrayal of the murdered pop Latin sensation Selena, in the film of the same name.
After seeing the film she says, "I made a bustier out of a bathing suit that I dyed black. I put glue and glitter all over it and I wouldn't take it off." She was five at the time.
Her career kicked off about five years later and having moved back and forth between acting and music over the last nine years, she is currently focusing on her film endeavors.
Oh yeah, and you all know she dates that one guy, not sure you’ve heard of him? Justin Bieber.
Though she’s no professional slouch, as far as the relationship goes, Justin Bieber’s persona and his fervent fans often overshadow Gomez. But the more we get to know her, the more we love her, and see why he does too.
"If I'll share anything with you, it's that he really is a hopeless romantic.” Then she gives an example of a recent date night where he rented out a theater so they could watch a sinking ship, in privacy. “I had just mentioned it in the car - all I said is that I really want to see Titanic again, and then."
And of course there was that recent paparazzi altercation where Biebs allegedly threw some blows. Was he fighting to protect his girl?
He should. We think he’s cute. And they’re cute together. But this Elle spread proves she’s way hotter.
