Selena Gomez: Basketball Babe

Selena Gomez: Basketball Babe

Treating herself to an evening of sport, Selena Gomez showed up at the Staples Center for the Los Angeles Lakers basketball game last night (March 17).

The Wizards of Waverly Place cutie was joined by her handsome silver-haired agent as she watched the Lakers beat the Sacramento Kings 113-102 from her primo courtside seats.

Selenas new movie Spring Breakers is slated to hit theaters this Friday (March 22nd) and in a recent interview Miss Gomez confessed that the racy flick was a breath of fresh air coming from her teeny-bopper background.

Disney is a machine, and Im grateful for it, but I feel like being part of that environment made me crave the reaction from other projects even more. Creatively this is where I wanted to go.

Ive never been part of a movie I would watch over and over again, and Im really proud of it. Its as far as I could go at this point in my life and career. Its me kind of taking baby steps, but I know that people will judge my involvement in the movie as a whole. Im prepared to accept that, she added.
