Selena Gomez Misses Her Disney Days

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Comedy, Kids, Cable, Cancellations, Features,

Selena Gomez on 'Wizards of Waverly Place'Selena Gomez wishes she was still a Disney star.

The 21-year-old star singer-and-actress found fame on Disney's Wizards of Waverly Place - where she played young wizard Alex Russo - and misses her the years of teen acting as she makes a transformation into an adult star. "I miss it. I wish I was still a part of it. I think it was the perfect thing for me at the time I was 14," she said.

The brunette beauty insists she doesn't yet feel as though she has made the transition from teen star to adult artist. Despite starring in Spring Breakers, releasing her debut album Dance Stars and overhauling her style, Selena - who previously dated Justin Bieber - sometimes still feels like she's 15.

Being interviewed by JLS star Marvin Humes on UK TV show Lorraine, she said, "I think everybody has a journey and you feel you have to love at the end of the day. There is not really a formula. I don't really know if I have fully made the transition yet. I feel like half the time I feel like I'm 15 and then I feel like I'm 21 then I feel like I'm 30 when I'm sitting at home by myself on a Friday night watching the same episode of Friends."

Casting is underway at the moment, and there is no official word yet as to whether Ben Savage (Cory), Danielle Fishel (Topanga), or Rider Strong (Shawn) - the three main cast members of the original series - will return.

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Kids, Music, Prime Time, Cable, Cancellations,

Miley Cyrus as Hannah MontanaThe Disney Channel has confirmed that their banner series Hannah Montana will be ending after its fourth season, but that may not necessarily mean we’ve seen the last of on the network. She’s still bankable for Disney Corp, and I don’t think they’re ready to let her go it alone just yet.

According to one programming executive, “the episodes will continue to roll out at least over a full year.”

Shooting for the new season starts on January 18.
