Selena Gomez insists she 'isn't trying to change her image' despite wild Spring Breakers role

After shooting to fame in Disney’s Wizards of Waverly Place, Selena Gomez picked up a bit of a good girl image (just like Vanessa Hudgens... until she got all naked and stuff, and Ashley Tisdale... until she was in Scary Movie 5 with Charlie Sheen).

But her latest movie Spring Breakers has taken her down a dark and dangerous path filled with awkward boob shots, beer drinking and guns. WHAT WOULD HER WIZARD FRIENDS THINK? She can never return to Waverly Place, thats fo’ sho.

However, Selena has insisted that this isn’t an attempt to try and change her goody two shoes reputation. According to Digital Spy, Selena said “I don’t think it was me getting rid of any sort of image.” Well, it definitely got rid of the image of you wearing clothes, Gomez, seeing as you spent the whole film in a bikini.

“I think I had an incredible four years at Disney. It was my family, it was the reason that I got to do everything that I loved. But at the same time, I’m now anting to do what I really love, which is acting, and becoming somebody else and escaping my reality and putting myself into these kind of movies.”

“I do specific things in my career that are tailored for a specific audience. Obviously I have a younger generation that looks at me - and I really appreciate that. And I just did an animated movie, so I wanted to respect that and still do things that will earn me that respect. But I also want to do things that challenge me and put me out of my element.”

Spring Breakers

Well we’re guessing that unless your element is being constantly hammered and surrounded by men with gold teeth and cornrows, Spring Breakers definitely did that. So high five, love.

What do you reckon? Do you think Spring Breakers was Selena trying to get a sexy new image or just a personal challenge for her?
