Experts Say Selena Gomez Needs to Be Sexier

Experts Say Selena Gomez Needs to Be Sexier-photo

Selena Gomez has built a thriving career on providing a wholesome, classier alternative to the racier teenage fare of the world. But according to some show-business experts, that career could be in danger if the Wizards of Waverly Place star, who turned 18 last week, doesn't hop on the bandwagon and sex it up a little. 

Hollywood Life assembled a panel of entertainment-industry professionals to discuss Gomez's future career prospects. The verdict? She's in danger of becoming boring, and losing her audience's attention, if she doesn't spice up her image some. 

Says one feature film and TV producer, 

"Holier than thou Selena COULD have a career like Dakota Fanning’s, a sweet-looking girl who lands gritty roles and earns rave reviews for her 'real' performances. However, I think that because she got her start at Disney, and, relatively, a little late in the game, she may wind up being type-cast in exclusively pre-teen films. If she landed the young role that would show her to be a Reese Witherspoon-type, she could break free of cheesy movies, but I think that her squeaky-clean image won’t do anything but keep her doing irrelevant and forgettable films."

One TV casting director concurs, adding,

"This 'cool kid image' Miley and Taylor are projecting is like gas on the popularity fire. I’d hang out with them!"

An unnamed director provides the dissenting view, opining that Gomez's mature attitude projects the stability that will lead to greater career opportunities:

"There is definitely a market for the wholesome young starlet, but more than that it shows that she has a good head on her shoulders and is thus likely to take her work more seriously and understand the importance of not wasting the opportunities she has been given."

What say you, readers? Could Selena stand a little grit on her squeaky-clean image, or is she on the right path as it is? Let us know in the comments section.

    Thats a silly picture. i think she looks sexy plenty of times. Not like crazy sexy, but like a cute young girl sexy. She may chose bad roles, but thats another story all together. Besides, if she acted sexy, then they would just give her crap for being sexy. This is just an example of a reporter trying to get a bit of excitement for the readers. There is absolutely no point to the article.

    selena is fine just the way she is! its would be a breath of fresh air if she doesn't turn into another miley (disney star gone slut!!!) the industry needs a true good girl that little girls can look up to. it disgusts me that my little cousins (7 & 4) absolutely love miley. i always try to steer them to selena or miranda {cosgrove} instead. hehe :) i feel you girl poor little cousins. good luck!!! :)

    those "experts" aren't probably "experts" at all if they think she need to sex it up a little. Selena is my role model and i don't want her to be like miley aka slut. Selena is pretty and she is talented. Those "experts" don't know what they talkin about.

    I totally agree..She has no talent in the singing field, and she does cheesy movies. I think she'll never grow out of Disney. She'll probably be done with acting by age 25. This I'm soo perfect act isn't going to keep people around for long!! Miley all the way!

  • sky

    i personally think shes a tad boring & she CAN NOT SING! its all voice over recorded stuff. i took my lil sis to see her live and omg she sucked so bad my sister asked to leave, and shes 5! but yea she is a little boring and honestly i doubt if she gets any big movies that show her in a more challenging role.

    I love how most Selena stans are hooked thinking that Selena is gonna stay in her goody two shoes just because she's not one of those celebs who get scandals made up on them 24/7. But how many Disney stars can u name that haven't sexed up their image at some part of their career and lasted and the limelight? Hilary Duff? How many times do people have to keep reminding themselves who she is? Raven Symone? People think she walked off a cliff somewhere and had a baby. The only Disney star that ever made it after Disney Hood and is a millionaire now is Shia Labeouf. Selena will be a no one in like 2 years from now

    As much as I hate Disney and their starlets, I think it's a GOOD thing she's not walking around like a whore in her underwear and trying to be overtly sexy like Miley Cyrus and Taylor Momsen and every other desperate kid out there. I don't support her, because she's a Disney product, but if I had to support any 'new star' out there, it would be her because she's not acting like a little slut.

    She definitely DOES NOT need to be sexier. It would just make her another fake like Miley Cyrus and the likes. She actually has talent and doesn't have have to strutt around like a skank voicing idiotic oppinions nobody really cares about..

    As far as I can tell, Selena is already successful. If her career fizzles because she refuses to "sex it up" for ratings, she already basically has it made, if she is responsible with her earnings. If she loves what she does, she can continue doing it relatively successfully without having to change who she is.

    So let me get this clear, Miley gets crap for acting sexy. And selena gets crap for not acting sexy? I love america. They just can't win, no matter what they do BECAUSE they come from Disney!! I like Miley & Selena. They are both very talented girls w/ a great future ahead of them.

    My daughters are 8 and 4, and they love Selena Gomez, and honestly, in a world of slutty teenaged 'role models', it's refreshing to have one that is comparatively NORMAL - i.e. what those of us in mainstream America can, you know, RELATE to, and one that our own children can, you know, LOOK UP TO. Wow - what a revelation. Leave the kid alone. She's very pretty, and she's talented, and it's nice that she's not a whore, and that she doesn't aspire to be one in order to sell her self out. (or, I would assume - in order for her parents to, uh, pimp her out.) Who says that someone who can barely drive and vote needs to 'sex' anything up? The girl obviously has some self-respect, and that's refreshing. Hopefully she'll stay true to herself.

    i know that as a teenager, i look up to selena as a role model. i don't look up to people like miley cyrus, because the image they are projecting, i choose not to be like them. i think selena is hopefully too mature to listen to what these critics have to say

  • patsycline

    I agree a little, being around their age I can definitely relate to Miley more. The average 17/18 yr old is 80 times worse than Miley or any other Disney star could ever be. So it's nice to see Miley be a real person (mistakes & all) and a legit teenager. I can look at her accomplishments and feel like I can do anything too. Or listen to her music that SHE wrote, and know that she feels and goes through some of the same things that I do and that I should always stay true to myself. I think Selena's a good actress, but her personality does bore me as of late. The only interesting interview she's done lately was the one when she couldn't talk... just my opinion though. I don't think she needs to go overboard, but I do think she needs to stop acting like she's STILL 13 yrs old and is little miss perfect (unless that's how she really is all the time then, as Miley would say, stay true to yourself!!). On the other hand, one thing that's saved her from drama is the fact that she never talks about her personal life. She'll do fine as is if she wants to keep 6-13 yr olds (and their mom's) as her core fan base for the rest of her life. Otherwise she might want to TRY staring in a movie that's at least PG-13 once WOWP is done (which is relatively soon). You just spoke my mind. I like Demi and Miley best, as I can relate to them, they make mistakes, just like us normal teenagers. But when I look at Selena, I see a cute girl but it's like she's flawless, no mistakes, nothing, so I would kind of prefer someone I can honestly relate to, even Miley's songs, which yes, SHE wrote.

    i KNOW RIGHT i am majorly pissed off from this post imeanthis girl only 18 she's still pretty much a teenager these people are just perverts i mean dude what do they want her to dress like a hooker or a stripper or something likemiley cyrus i mean haven't you heard she's already losing fans because people don't like the new her and the way she dresses i mean yeah she's playing it safe she could dress a little more like demi but everybody's personality is different and she can dress anway she wants a nd somebody said on here that she should dress more like she does on wowp hello she kinda does dress like that i mean what is the freaking difference between the way she dresses now than she does on the show i mean that person is so stupid because they think she dresses mor sexier on wowp that's bullcrap right their i mean a lot of stars have been fine without dressing like that im just glad she's staying true to herself she has alll the time in the world to dress sexier i mean if she was boring than why does she have a million of fans ,anyway i aggree with with anybody who says she should stay true to herself . Have you ever heard of punctuation? I couldn't finish reading.. "i mean that, i mean, i mean".

    The career of just about any actress will benefit from getting more challenging and complex roles, but that doesn't necessarily demand being any more sexual (in the most simplistic sense) on or especially off-screen. What is 'sexy' isn't set in stone, it changes over time as audiences respond to what they see. Confidence and individuality are very powerful qualities, and if girls like Selena just stick to their guns and do their own thing then that will become more and more popular - it will become a new definition of sexy. Selena is a role model for the girls of her generation and so far she has been an exceptional one: classy, mature, gracious, and refreshing. Her dedication to her fans is outstanding. Changing her image to fit what these experts advise would be about the worst thing she could do for her fans, because those fans are also under the same pressure from all around to dumb it down and sex it up. It's not easy for teenage girls to resist that when they see starlets getting immediate recognition for selling sex. I have no doubt that if Selena stays true to her fans they'll stay true to her. Also I want to know what on earth these experts are thinking - what Oscar winning actress has ever won her award for parading herself around in revealing clothing since the day she turned 18? The women who are truly successful in Hollywood have talent and confidence, and any sex appeal they choose to project is secondary. Someone who really knows Hollywood would be suggesting she hone her skills and focus on working hard, not being more sexual.

  • Steph
    Steph

    Who does 'sexing up' appeal to? It appeals to the kind of people who most wouldn't want as an audience anyway. People love to hate the 'new' Miley Cyrus. That is why she is still popular. Why be popular for being annoying and disliked? Stay the same Selena.

    You know, I think I agree with you. The little girl next door stuff can get old. She should do like Emma Watson... Emma's sexy as hell, but does it gracefully... Long, gowns, fitted but unrevealing clothes, ect. The girl's managed to balance mature with sultry and I like Selena can do that too. emma watson isn't so classy. look up emma watson upskirt. she was wearing see thru panties and u could see everything. this chick dresses slutty some times. not nearly as slutty as miley or taylor. there's so few role models for girls nowdays. these pics of selena are bad. look at her appearance on letterman a week ago. she looked BEAUTIFUL

  • bandslam
    bandslam

    selena will be a big star cause she's a great actress. i loved ramona and beezus. her performance was perfect. she s.ells out every concert. miley's only a big star cause disney brainwashed alot of little girls with constant promotion 4 years ago. but miley is losing fans everyday with her slutty behavior while selena is gaining fans everyday with her class and beauty

  • jezuhs
    jezuhs

    and that explains y miley and taylor r soooooooo much more successful taylor is not more "successful". yes she is all over gossip news for her crazy outfits but that, in no way, equals success. and for the record, you do not have to show a lot of skin to be sexy. being able to carry yourself properly is classy and sexy. selena is doing a very good job at that.

  • hearttoheart
    hearttoheart

    In time Selena will probably spice things up. She'll probably take it slow. Not like other teen star who changed all of a sudden. But we can't rush her. She's still a good actress even if she's in a classier side of Hollywood. Peace to everyone.

  • middle ground
    middle ground

    You people have very narrow minds. So it seems your either a conservative or a slut? There is a middle ground here. What the "experts" are saying is that she is bland and needs a little spice, not that she should become a tramp. I can't agree more that she boring, I've always thought that about her. Her career in Hollywood wont go far if she doesn't start to look more like a woman and less like a little girl. She's 18 not 12. Time for her to start looking, and acting her age.

  • let her be her

    ugh i like selena just the way she is. she dress fine and acts fine for her age. and i would rather hang out with her any day over miley and taylor. selena seems nice and genuine and dosent get annoying like msot disney stars. and shes the best actress on that channel. love her!!!

    I kind of agree with them though. That whole "good girl" act is going to get old. Its going to be hard for Selena to find serious role because she molded herself into a wannabe grandma.

    She is fine just the way she is. She does not need to sex it up like the other actors do. She is to stick to what feels right to her. This has nothing to do with movie or record sales. This is about older perverted men wanting to deflower a young girl by looking at them like sex objects and not people. You so have a point! Selena is great the way she is, I even liker her better than Miley Cyrus. She is not wanting to do weird videos like I can't be Tamed, she wants to be serious at want she does. That does not involve a young lady of 18 to become "sexier". She is still yet becoming an adult, Sexy is not what movies is about, its about the Talent!

  • naomi

    btw, some of you are saying that if she wants to become a better actress, she needs to pick better roles. most of you are right, but listen. yes, she's 18. her contract with disney doesn't end until next year. she's not rushing it. i think what she's trying to do is still keep her fan base and wants her fans to grow with her through the process. first, it started with ramona and beezus, then it's monte carlo. she'll eventually get offered more roles. but she has a bright future ahead of her. and another thing, these "experts" are ridiculous. they're only saying this to tear her down and break her, like everyone else in hollywood. anyway, that's all i have to say.

  • Dari

    Honestly this is what i have been feeling i like Selena but find her too boring I would like to get slightly edgy I mean Demi Lovato isnt doing it fine...shes age appropriate yet edgy aswell for me...Its not even sexy that she needs to be I mean if she was like her character in WOWP more people would like her I agree, Demi is my favorite out of the 3 (Demi, Miley, then Selena) because I feel like she's the best of both worlds. While I like Miley's realness, and the fact that she's funny, I like Demi the most because she's the best actress/singer, and she is real too, she goes through things and stays relate-able. While keeping the controversy down. She's not as huge on the Disney radar either which I think will be good in the long run because she can take a role outside of Disney and people won't automatically be like "omg, it's that Disney star, ughh..."

    WHAT!!! Selena Gomez need to be sexier sez who the Hollywood expert whore makers. Sorry I'm a liberal but if they defile this sweet girl with false pretext of fame. I will lose respect on this industry. Not all growing up Hollywood princess are destined for Burlesque house. She's not Miley Cyrus she's prettier than her. she will be famous by just being herself because audience will rooting for this Preciosita ta Linda in whatever role she plays.

    Selena shouldn't pull a Miley. No no no. But, lets be real this is Hollywood. If she doesn't do something scandalous soon people will forget. I'm not saying she has to flash her business or start dancing on table tops, but look at how much publicity she got for dating Taylor L. What makes it worse is that shes a Disney star, and if she doesn't edgy it up a bit shes gonna end up like Hilary Duff doing ABC family movies. She should try and be more edgy, not slutty. Miley Cyrus has ruined it by going pass the fine line of sexy and then slutty. So Selena if you wanna stay famous after Wizards i'd suggest thinking of something "bad" to do to keep people watching.

    she doesn't need to change who she is at all. i honestly think that most casting directors need to look at selena's wholesome personality as something that younger generations of america can look up to today. that's what they need. they need someone like her that's going to show them a right way to go. you think that selena's career is going to go down the tubes if she doesn't get sexier? just look at lindsay lohan. she went off into her experimental teenage stage. look where she is now. she sure made a career for herself, didn't she?

She'll find a different audience than Miley and other slutty celebrities...her audience would be mature young adults who are responsible and cares about their future in showbizness and in real life. Leave her alone, perverts!

    As a nudist, here is my 2 cents. She COULD take her clothes off if she chooses to and still be wholesome and pure. That's why I praise Vanessa for doing just that in 2007. If people weren't so hung up about nudity, it would be no big deal. The key thing is not to pressure anyone to take their clothes off IF they do not wish to. However...don't criticize those that DO wish to take their clothes off. It seems to be a double standard in this country. I wish clothes had never been invented to begin with. Then, this whole trouble would never have even happened. Curse whoever came up with the idea to invent clothes!

    I think it's hilarious how people are always criticizing and getting onto people like Miley Cyrus and Taylor Momsen because they are being 'too edgy' for their age or because of the clothes they were or their performances of whatever. And then when there is somebody like Selena Gomez, who is actually way more mature they will ever be and is actually a decent actress and doesn't go around flaunting her body and acting too old for her age, she gets criticized because she's not acting like people like Miley & Taylor. Just let the girl be. If she wanted to go around and act like them, she would. But she doesn't. This is honestly the stupidest thing I've ever heard in my life! Exactly. I was dumbfounded when I first read this article. I have never before been so furious in my life.

    I dont think, that she needs to "sex it up a little". I think, if she got a part like Dakota Fanning got "The Runaways", or other more racy things, she could have a bigger carreer.. I dont think, that she needs to change the way she is in real life... But she should get away from Disney though...

    woww..honestly? these "experts" need to take their "advice" and shove it...Selena is a beautiful, talented young LADY who made the right choice to act her age..she doesnt need to act like a little slut to be successful because her talent is what matters...and honestly didn't all those idiotic critics spend the past year criticizing Miley cyrus for acting too matured...Go to hell idiots!

    She's perfect the way she is. Nothing ends a career faster than slutting out. Miley and Taylor are flash-in-the-pans and they will be nothing but an afterthought in a year or two. Classy girls go the distance, and teen girls really need someone to look up to anyway.

    So let me get this clear, Miley gets crap for acting sexy. And selena gets crap for not acting sexy? I love america. Miley was fondling herself on stage and grinding on a stripper pole... thats not sexy, it's slutty

    So let me get this clear, Miley gets crap for acting sexy. And selena gets crap for not acting sexy? I love america. I don't know if this is just in America, but that mentality is still pretty stupid and hypocritical Sandra Bullock and Julia Roberts have had pretty good careers and they haven't "sexed it up". Really now? Julia Roberts is still famous for playing a PROSTITUTE in "Pretty Woman," and as recently as in "Charlie Wilson's War" she was banging Tom Hanks on screen.

    She could definitely do with landing more serious roles...but there's absolutely no need to "sex" anything up. She looks classy and respectable as she is, and her future success has nothing to do with her being sexier - but to be honest, she's already very sexy as she is. These "experts", and anyone else who thinks the same, should screw off. She's a great actress and I'd love to see her career go the same way as Dakota Fanning.

    selena is amazing and just because she stated late does not mean she wont make it alot of people started there carrers late... and she doesnt need to be sexy she already is.... i dont need another half-naked star.... i love selena she is the best, i think she will make it big its in her talent not in her image

    I think she doesn't have to change who she is... she doesn't have to sell herself out... But I don't see why Miley isn't "wholesome"? Taylor is one step away from rehab, sorry but she's trying way too hard... I think Miley and Selena both can have a succesful career in different ways.( Selena should stick to acting though she's a sucky singer)

    shes the most dignified (if thats a word) girl in hollywood, and u want her to whore-ify herself just because you want her to. BTW she is succesful the way she is and the ONLY person kids and teens can look up to IN HOLLYWOD, THE OTHERS ARE ALL SLUTS. i LOVE U SELENA , KEEP THE GOOD WORK.

    Actually "sexing it up a bit" doesn't work for some people. We've seen this with Miley, shes losing fans because of her new sexy image, her new sexually charged CD isn't selling as much as hoped. Selena is probably going to have the better career, not crash and burn like most teen stars. She has an older audience than Miley, from what I've observed from fan videos and people around me who like her, shes not just a tween star. I say Selena is perfect the way she is and will get good film roles and continue on. She might turn out to be a phenomonal actress one day who knows. Crash and burn celebs like Lindsay who have sexed it up to the point of no return are actually not being hired FYI !! She by far does not have an older audience than miley

  • Liza

    You people are just trying to find SOME way to bring her down because you DAMN WELL know that she is not some mini-slut who will turn in to Britney or Christina, and there's seriously nothing else to criticize. She is well grounded, smart, beautiful, and talented. She does not need to "sex it up" to attract older men because she already has these contributing factors. Get a life, don't worry about her career. You guys are complaining about her being a good example to her audiences!? Wow... people these days.

    I'm 9001% in favor of her sexing up her career quite a bit. It would broaden her audience so much. She needs to do it slowly however and nothing drastic so she can keep her current fans. I can't wait for sexy Selena! haha I agree with you, she needs to do it slowy not rush into it.

    huh? really? who are these "experts?" selena DOES NOT need to be sexier. yes, she's 18. she doesn't need to rush it, like most stars do. she's perfect, just the way she is. that's the problem with today's society. they want her to change her image, so they can tear her down. that's the problem with this country and the media. they will never appreciate any celebrity's status. they build you up to tear you down. selena, don't change who you are. you're perfectly fine.

Miley and Sel are two DIFFERENT girls, not everyone can be the same you know. And if Miley is going all sexy, then let her go sexy and if her carrier turns upside down, then it will be her whos gonna be paying. For now, let's continue adoring this gorgeous Selena and stop comparing anyone to anyone. I SO AGREE WITH MYSELF, AFTER RE-READING THIS!

    She's got class and that is how she has separated herself from the pact. There is no point in selling herself out. She has talent. She has charisma and warmth. To find a skank in Hollywood is a dime a dozen. Selena is smarter and better than that.

    I love the way Selena Gomez is! She barely turned 18 years old.... ! Why does she have to 'sex it up'??? She'll find a different audience than Miley and other slutty celebrities...her audience would be mature young adults who are responsible and cares about their future in showbizness and in real life. Leave her alone, perverts! GAH this post made me angry!

    I'm a young guy, and I am ecstatic Selena has remained classy. Hillary Duff has done a pretty good job as well. We need more Audrey Hepburns and less Britney, Lindsay, Miley, etc.Sandra Bullock and Julia Roberts have had pretty good careers and they haven't "sexed it up".Sex sells. If an entertainer wants to be popular by selling sex, there's a much older profession they should look into.Sex is an easy sell. And it's most commonly used to cover up glaring deficiencies in talent. Hit the nail right on the head...especially with the last 2 sentences.

    She is fine just the way she is. She does not need to sex it up like the other actors do. She is to stick to what feels right to her. This has nothing to do with movie or record sales. This is about older perverted men wanting to deflower a young girl by looking at them like sex objects and not people.
