Selena Gomez has revealed that she was once rejected by the head honchos over at the Disney Channel!
That seems kind of odd, considering all of the success and fame that she’s gotten as a result of her career. Once, she was told that she wasn’t strong enough to be a face for the house of mouse.
According to reports, she was turned down by a director roughly seven years ago. She said, “When I was eleven, I had a casting director say to me, ‘You’re not strong enough to carry your own show. You’re not strong enough to be part of the Disney Channel.”
She went on to reveal, “I cried all the time afterwards, but I just kept on working hard. Whenever you have a goal, whether you want to be a doctor or a singer, people will find a way to bring you down.”
She added, “I always tell people that if you have something you’re really passionate about, don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do it.”
Wise words indeed!
