“I do feel like I have one more album in me, but I would probably choose acting,” Gomez shared, revealing a desire for a more balanced workload.

Gomez, recognized for her versatile roles in both comedy (“Wizards of Waverly Place”) and drama (“Spring Breakers,” “The Fundamentals of Caring”), successfully transitioned from her Disney days to a respected actress. Beyond acting, she delved into producing and explored creative ventures.

The singer, despite not being a trained vocalist, found success in the music industry, kickstarting her career alongside her Disney breakthrough. Reflecting on her journey, she acknowledged the unexpected trajectory of her singing hobby turning into a full-blown career. The pressures of being a Disney star added to this shift, pushing her into the realm of a triple threat.

In December, Gomez hinted at a new album on social media, her first since “Rare” in 2020. Beyond music, she’s been making waves in the beauty industry with her cosmetics company, Rare Beauty, founded in 2019. Additionally, she’s been captivating audiences in the Hulu series “Only Murders in the Building.”

While the announcement of a new album creates anticipation, Gomez, who recently confirmed her relationship with music producer Benny Blanco, is steering more towards acting. She continues to diversify her career with an upcoming role in the musical comedy thriller “Emilia Perez,” alongside Zoe Saldana and Edgar Ramirez.

Selena Gomez, a name associated with reinvention, now contemplates a potential musical farewell. Whether this album marks the end of a chapter or a temporary pause, it adds a reflective tone to her evolving career.

As fans await the release, Gomez’s decision to prioritize balance and well-being in her professional life is a reminder of the human behind the star.
