Last night, E! Entertainment had a special on Selena Gomez. Did you tune in? Disney Channel’s president of entertainment Gary Marsh revealed that Disney had offered Selena the role of Mitchie in Camp Rock, but she turned it down. Marsh goes into detail about why Selena decided not to join the Jonas Brothers and your other favorite stars in the film.
Marsh said, “She wasn’t ready to explore that part of her talent yet. She wanted to build her acting base first.” Executive vice president of Hollywood Records Abbey Konowitch also added that Selena knew she wanted to perform at sold-out arenas like Demi Lovato and the Jonas Brothers, but she just wasn’t ready yet.
Now that Selena is performing her own sold-out concerts and acting in films, do you think Selena made the right decision not to take on the role? How do you think the story (and their lives) would be different if she did? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
