Is Selena Gomez Ready to Break ‘Good Girl’ Image?

By: / August 9, 2010

Everyone loves Selena Gomez for her classy, good girl image, but it turns out that the teen cutie doesn’t like being known as a wholesome role model. The Wizards of Waverly Place star tells Hollywood Life that she hates being known as the “good girl” of the Young Hollywood set:

The funny thing is, I really don’t like it when people say I’m wholesome. I don’t like that at all! I never said I was that and I never tried to portray it. I’m honestly doing what I feel like I’m doing…and I’d just like to figure out who I am.

Of course, while Selena says she doesn’t like being branded as “wholesome,” that doesn’t mean that she wants to pull a Miley Cyrus and start dressing (and acting) more provocatively. The 18-year-old starlet is still a good girl at heart as evidenced by her two actress role models:

I look up to people my family loves. [My inspirations] are Rachel McAdams and Sandra Bullock. They’re very strong women in the acting world and really real people and I love them.

Both Rachel and Sandra are known for being talented, well-resepcted actresses who have managed to maintain a grown-up version of the good girl image.

The Ramona and Beezus star must be doing some good with her wholesome image: Selena took home a slew of awards last night at the Teen Choice Awards, including Red Carpet Fashion Icon. See ladies, you don’t need to show skin to be a fashion role model.

Do you think Selena should break her good girl image? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
