Selena Gomez has been in the business since she was a small child of Barney and Friends. She is very aware of what the public thinks of her – including her vocal skills.
Gomez recently released an album called Rare which did well in the music charts. She visited the Kelly Clarkson Show to promote her album and understand how some people perceive it.
Although not known to top long, high notes like some of its peers, Disney Channel alum makes music that makes fans feel something. Whether it’s her love and grief stories or whether the melodies inspire listeners to sing or dance – Selena has solidified her place in pop.

While speaking to the winner of American Idol, Selena admitted: “ I have constantly tried to improve my music better and better because I know people may not think I am the greatest singer , but I’m just working my a ** off. I really like to write and create and create melodies and grow. I felt like it was my chance to say all the things I wanted to say that way that were talking about relationships and talking about difficult times or being vulnerable or being stuck in your head, because I can do a lot of things. I wanted it to feel good. I wanted it to feel like every word counted and you could feel it physically. I’m still in the studio now because I feel like it inspired me and I want to continue.
The best singer in the world, [I] speak to everyone right now, is not the loudest, is not the “Oh my God, you just sang like Whitney Houston. The best singers in the world move you. It comes from different sounds and styles. From singer to singer, it’s beautiful what you do. I love your record and I like big, huge songs but I like to sing your music. It means something and it moves people, so never deny your gift because it is powerful.
