Selena Gomez Wants To Learn Spanish


Selena Gomez says that she wants to learn Spanish in honor of her Latina roots.

"I look at myself in the mirror every day and think, "Man, I wish I knew more Spanish,"' she tells Harper's Bazaar. "Most of the time, though, I try to separate my career from my culture because I don't want people to judge me based on my looks when they have no idea who I am. And now more than ever, I'm proud of it. But I still need to learn Spanish."

She admits that she knew how important it was when she met a single Latina mother on the set of her Disney show Wizards Of Waverly Place. "She was like, "It's really incredible for my daughters to see that a Latina woman can be in this position and achieve her dreams, someone who isn't the typical, you know, blonde with blue eyes."
