Selena Gomez for her show, Only Murders in the Building

Selena Gomez appeared on the latest episode of the Smartless podcast, hosted by Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, and Sean Hayes. In the podcast, the singer revealed that she wants to focus on only one aspect of her career and could potentially retire from music after her next album to focus solely on acting. 

“I started having a lot of fun with music, and then touring was really fun. But I was doing my TV show at the same time [Wizards of Waverly Place], and I just found it really fun, so I just kept going, but the older I get, the more I’m kind of like, I would like to find something to just settle on,” Gomez said. “I do feel like I have one more album in me, but I would probably choose acting,” she further added. 

Selena Gomez is tired of juggling multiple careers together

Selena also said that she wants to relax and is tired of juggling two careers together. She always wanted to be an actress and started singing as a hobby, but it quickly turned into a career after her huge success in the field. “I don’t think I’m the best singer, but I do know how to tell stories, and I love being able to make songs,” she continued.

Gomez got into singing after she got the lead role on her Disney channel show, Wizards of Waverly Place. From there, her unplanned singing career took off, “Disney is, it’s safe to say, a machine and, in a way, forcefully require that I know how to sing so I could sing the theme song. They know how to package someone and make it a whole triple threat thing.” Disney went on to offer Gomez to sing a whole album and she agreed as she ‘thought it would be fun.’

In the podcast, Selena Gomez also opened up about the mental health struggles she suffered due to her heavy workload. “I went to a mental institute and cancelled one of my tours,” she said. “It just got to me because I love working and it distracts me from bad things.”

Selena Gomez’s acting career has been on the rise recently, as her performance in Hulu’s Only Murders in the Building has awarded her with two Golden Globe nominations, both in 2023 and 2024, for the best performance by an actress in a television series – musical or comedy.
