Selena Gomez Signs With WME, Brillstein

The actress and singer, who fired her parents as managers last week, is seeking to move past her teen idol image.
Selena Gomez has found a new representation team. A week after firing her mother and stepfather as managers, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that the actress and singer, who previously was with CAA, has joined WME and signed with Brillstein for management.
The rep changes signal the Disney alum's intention to move on into more adult-oriented fare in film and music. After getting her start on the Disney Channel's Wizards of Waverly Place, Gomez recently starred in Harmony Korine's girls-gone-wild crime drama Spring Breakers, and as a mysterious street urchin in the action thriller Getaway, opposite Ethan Hawke.
Gomez, 21, recently completed shooting on the comedy Behaving Badly opposite Nat Wolff and Mary-Louise Parker and appeared opposite Billy Crudup in the musical dramedy Rudderless, William H. Macy's directorial debut. Her other screen credits include Hotel Transylvania and Monte Carlo.
Gomez's first solo album, Stars Dance, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 last summer on the strength of triple-platinum lead single "Come & Get It." She also took home the VMA for Best Pop Video at last year's MTV Video Music Awards. She previously released three albums as part of her band, Selena Gomez & The Scene, all on Disney's Hollywood Records.

thought the title said WWE and was intrigued for a second.

Same. I thought it was an odd career choice, but an interesting one.

I'm sort of disappointed now.

Cannot move a teen image with a forever teen face

hmm, it's not as if CAA can't handle getting her more adult themed work, so I don't get why that was mentioned in the article, isn't CAA one of the best companies to be repped by??

yes, I think Oprah is or was represented by them. They're one of the top agencies in the country.

WME is known to have the biggest/best music department, though, so that might be why - better mix of music and acting.

oop, i thought that said she signed with the wwe and was really confused for a second.

haha, same here.

I wonder if she'll always look 17 up until 30 and then a decade of age smacks her in the face.
maishi_obuki 18th-Apr-2014 12:56 am (UTC)
based on her mother's face, Yes.

op, why do you think think a VMA is equivalent to a Grammy?

He/she also thinks she is mexican madonna

Also, it has to be pretty shitty to be her parents right now, knowing that your own child is cutting you off of your only income source. Not saying her parents weren't driven by $$ while managing her but it must sting having put your daughter's career ahead of your own and now be dropped.

IDK, her parents just had a baby so I think it's probably best for both parties
falling_cookie 19th-Apr-2014 03:19 pm (UTC)
from other reports, this has been arranged for a while. Her parents also have other people they manage and they do have a new baby too. This is the best for both of them.

Whoa Brillstein is huge! Good for you Selena.

thebadunkadunk 18th-Apr-2014 12:25 am (UTC)
Maybe they can help her get over her Beiber fever
aria_grace 18th-Apr-2014 12:27 am (UTC)
Her career was going pretty well. I wonder why she decided to switch. She could have ditched her parents and stayed at CAA
viudanegra 18th-Apr-2014 12:27 am (UTC)
I just hope she doesn't get into a fight with her parents =/
wownow 18th-Apr-2014 08:21 am (UTC)
her mom already went directly to tmz to say they were blindsided by selena's decision so it seems messy
imahouseofcards 18th-Apr-2014 12:48 am (UTC)
Wow this is so interesting
divafit 18th-Apr-2014 02:13 am (UTC)
not sure why she would depart from caa at this juncture in her flop ass career but alright sure

She needs to get an older boyfriend first and foremost.

So, I wasn't watching my music player when it changed songs... I was waiting for Selena to start singing, but it ended up being Kelly Clarkson's, Mr. Know It All instead of Selena's, Who Says. Anyone notice they start off the same? lol
prophecypro 18th-Apr-2014 08:47 pm (UTC)
Yeah I wish it was WWE too
