If there's anyone who knows what it takes to have a goal and reach it, it's Selena Gomez. From the second she hopped into the car and moved to California with her mom as a kid, she knew greater things were coming -- and she was definitely right. But with all of the good things that come out of being famous, there's still a fair amount of bad.
During her cameo in Thirty Seconds To Mars' "City Of Angels" video, Selena talked about how she got her start, saying, "I picked up my entire life. I moved [away] from my biological father, and I just went with my mom, and we got a loft in downtown LA. My mom has always allowed me to be who I want to be. She always let me do what I want to do. That's how I want to be. I look up to my mom. I want to be my mom."
Then once Selena started getting recognized, fame turned a little ugly.
"You get your first paparazzi, and you get your first fan letter, and it's all super exciting. Then, it just got very weird very fast. It became about where I was going to eat, and who I was meeting up with," Selena said. "I think they think I'm goody-goody, I'm boring. Then I'm a fame w***e. I use people. So, then there's that."
