Canadian music superstar Justin Beiber’s ex Selena Gomez turns 24 on July 22. She can sing, act, and model, but recently she added another feather to her cap: super-savvy businesswoman.
The Revival artist, who was diagnosed with lupus less than a year ago, has proven to be unstoppable. Between securing endorsement deals with world-renowned companies, performing at the 2015 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, and coming out on top as the most followed person on Instagram (in the world!), 23 was a whirlwind of a year for the former Disney Channel star.
Having appeared as a child in the children’s television series Barney & Friends, Gomez rose to fame as the leading role in the Disney channel series Wizards of Waverly Place (2007–12). Due to the success of the series, Gomez worked on various films, television shows, and musical collaborations for the network in the following years.
