Selena Gomez seems to have realised that her past comments about signing her life to Disney have been taken otherwise. The singer recently clarified that the comments about her time on the Disney channel were all in good fun and that she is “beyond proud” of her past work with the channel.
For a quick recap, while promoting her upcoming Hulu series Only Murders in the Building earlier this month, the Fetish songstress joked about signing her “life away to Disney” in a reference to her being a teen actor on the channel’s Wizards of Waverly Place show from 2007 to 2012.
“I signed my life away to Disney at a young age, so I didn’t know exactly what I was doing. I was a kid, I was just running around on set, and now I feel like a sponge and I soak up all the wisdom that I can,” she said at a press panel.
Now, taking cognisance of her comments in a recent joint interview with Steve Martin, Gomez addressed that the comment was “made in jest”. “I’m beyond proud of the work that I did with Disney as well. It kind of shaped who I am in a way,” Gomez said, adding that she was looking forward to doing another shot to television.
Martin also backed his co-star and said, “I have to jump in because I was there when Selena said that. [It] was said in the most light-hearted, funny, jokey way. And then I see it gets interpreted — sometimes they’ll say she was joking and sometimes they have it as an ominous headline — but it was completely all in fun. I’ve signed my life away to Marty Short, you think I like that?” Martin added.
Gomez began her career with the television series, Barney and Friends. In her teens, she was seen in Wizards of Waverly Place. She also had a brief role in Hannah Montana.
