Selena Gomez has had the spotlight since she was a young teen on the Disney Channel. Now she is being called upon by adults to “act her own age.”

According to MTV, “Selena said she’s connected with 23.7 million Twitter followers, 16 million Instagrammers and 64 million Facebook fans,” and the 22 year-old actress sometimes gets flack from her multitudes of fans. The Come & Get It singer said,

Chief among them? I get picked on by grown adults all the time. It’s grown-ups, and I don’t get it. It just baffles me. I wish I could just sit them down and say, ‘What were you doing at 15? What were you doing at 18? What were you doing at 21? Because I can guarantee you it’s not half of what I’ve done.’ Trust me, it’s hard. I’ve had my moments where I’ve let them get to me, but I refuse to let them win.”

Gomez currently has a lead role in ABC’s television series, Scandal, which has been occupying most of her time. Part of Selena’s goal in accepting the role was to steer her image away from all the attention she received as a teen celebrity.

“I’m a newbie. I’m at the beginning of season 2 … It’s also empowering for me because I just want to do all of that. I just want to be that and I know a lot of girls feel that way. The way she’s just on it is really inspiring.”

The young actress also admitted recently to Jimmy Kimmel on Jimmy Kimmel Live that she has a crush on Rudderless costar, actor Billy Crudup.

“I had a crush on him. I went through my whole Almost Famous phase, so I was like Penny Lane for a good month. I wore the outfits and had the hair and the glasses, and then, I found out I was going to be a part of the movie [with Crudup] and it took me a minute at first, because I kind of had a little bit of a crush on him.”

For someone who’s not a fan of adults, it seems she might like this one quite a bit.
