Gomez: “I Want to Join a Band”
Posted by mattymoe on August 8, 2008
Disney star Selena Gomez has vowed not to follow in the footsteps of fellow teen icon Miley Cyrus and release a solo album – she wants to join a band instead.
Cyrus launched a solo music career following the success of her Hannah Montana TV show, releasing two solo Lps since 2007.
And Gomez, who stars in hit kids show The Wizards of Waverly Place, also wants to create her own sound, but she doesn’t want to go it alone.
She tells MTV.com, “I’m going to be in a band – no Selena Gomez stuff. I’m not going to be a solo artist. I think that I don’t want my name attached to it.”
But Gomez promises her fans will still enjoy the record: “I basically want to make music that is fun and that parents and kids can jump around to and have a good time to. I will be singing, and I’m learning drums and playing electric guitar.”
