    Selena Gomez really hasn’t done crap! All she’s done is get paid to travel and show up a few places…..that’s it! This girl is totally useless!

      One more thing. Selena has a HUGE, HUGE heart, and what she does is done without any promoted expectations nor any expected publicity, but she gives with her Big and Kind and beautiful heart. You people have NO idea what u all have put the poor girl thru over the last few years: NO ISEA.

    • Markus says:

      That’s what ALL these people do, and the more money one has, the more they can do. Selena has done what her time and space allows her to. But I was expecting at least one person to attack her or, Cyber Bully her. Selena is THE selected target of “hate” by the mass pop culture (mostly the young but not only [that’s for sure]), which I am sure you belong to that “hate” club, so maybe one day you will walk in Selena’s shoes and u will know what it feels like to be her AND U WILL NOT like it. The world is being filled with Bullies and Bigots.
