The 20-year-old Disney pop princess, of Mexican and Italian heritage, got her start in 2007 on the Disney Channel hit Wizards of Waverly Place. She traded in her squeaky-clean image for a frisky role alongside James Franco and Vanessa Hudgens in Spring Breakers, which debuted at the Venice Film Festival in September, and saw her 2011 album, When the Sun Goes Down, peak at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart. Gomez’s next album, which will include songs written by boyfriend Justin Bieber, is due in 2013.
