Selena Gomez is gearing up to make a splash in the celebrity beauty market.

The Lose You to Love Me singer took to Instagram on Tuesday to announce that she will be unveiling Rare Beauty, in conjunction with executives at Sephora, this summer.

Rare Beauty shares the same name as Selena’s third solo studio album, Rare, which dropped last month.

“Guys, I’ve been working on this special project for two years and can officially say Rare Beauty is launching in @sephora stores in North America this summer!” the superstar wrote, alongside a short video introducing the line. “Follow @rarebeauty and become part of our beautiful community. Here’s a tiny sneak. There’s more to share AND I can’t wait.”

In the clip, Selena shows off her new eyeshadow, lipstick and blush, and experiments with make-up sponges.

“Being rare is about being comfortable with yourself. I’ve stopped trying to be perfect. I just want to be me,” the 27-year-old told her followers. “I think Rare Beauty can be more than a beauty brand. I want us all to stop comparing ourselves to each other, and just start embracing our own uniqueness. You’re not defined by a photo, a like or a comment. Rare Beauty isn’t about how other people see you, it’s about how you see yourself.”

Selena’s inspiring message appears to have connected with her 167 million Instagram followers, as within two hours of her announcement, Rare Beauty’s Instagram page had already amassed more than one million fans.

Selena Gomez debuts neck tattoo in celebration of album

Selena Gomez has had the name of her latest album tattooed on her neck.

The singer released Rare, her third solo studio record, last week, with the album featuring tracks including Lose You to Love Me and Look at Her Now and receiving positive reviews from music critics.

On Thursday, Selena took to Instagram to share that she had decided to have the title inked in small cursive script on the side of her neck.

“Did it again,” she wrote alongside a still image of the tattoo as well as a video of herself looking at the design for the first time.

Selena credited Keith “Bang Bang” McCurdy and the Bang Bang Tattoo parlour in New York City for the body art. Speaking to E! News, Bang Bang explained that the 27-year-old was thrilled with the final result.

“I think she always had her neck in mind so we tried a few different spots but then decided on her neck right under her jaw. After we placed it there she instantly said she ‘loved it,'” he told the outlet. “She felt it would be an easy thing to cover if she ever did an acting job, it would only need a little spot of make-up to cover and that was her only concern with putting it in a prominent place.”

And while a few of Selena’s 166 million Instagram followers were surprised by her choice of placement, the majority had positive remarks about the tattoo.

“I love that tattoo! It’s so powerful and cute at the same time!” one fan posted, while another added: “I love everything about this.”

Selena is no stranger to body art. She also has a music note on her right wrist, the roman numerals for the number 76 on the back of her neck, and the word “sunshine” on her right foot, among others.

Selena Gomez and her younger sister wear “awkward” matching clothes during the Christmas holidays.

The popstar can usually be seen looking glam on the red carpet or in campaigns for her collaboration with sportswear giant Puma, but Christmas is all about keeping cosy and comfortable for Selena, who gets into the holiday spirit by finding matching outfits that she and her six-year-old half-sister Gracie can wear during the festive period.

“I always love knit sweaters – I’m totally that girl. I usually will just wear something comfy, maybe just a dress pant that’s loose,” she told InStyle. “Or, when I’m hanging out with my sister, of course, I want to put on cosy, matching, awkward Christmas stuff. I’ve already bought so many different outfits we can wear together. I feel it’s my time, because when I’m with my family at Christmas, it’s not like I’m not going out to huge fancy dinners or anything. It’s usually just us, tucked away and just having time for ourselves.”

The 27-year-old shared that she places a lot of importance in feeling comfortable and will pick a jacket that feels like a “safety blanket”.

“There are jackets I can almost wear with anything, and it’s like my go-to safety blanket. Whether it’s a nice sweater or a fluffy jacket, something that’s cosy. That tends to be recurring,” Selena joked.

Elsewhere in the interview, the Lose You to Love Me added that she always wears jewellery to complete a look.

“Whether I’m wearing anything from sportswear, to street, or red carpet, I feel like it’s nice to have a little bit (of jewellery). The earrings I have are cheap – not real gold, basically – but it always makes me feel like (I’m going) from casual to something nice,” she explained.

Hailey Bieber dislikes how social media is pitting women against each other and creating “toxic narratives”.

The model is no stranger to finding herself at the centre of headlines alleging she is at war with other famous women, such as her husband Justin Bieber’s ex Selena Gomez.

And in a new interview with British Vogue, Hailey insisted she wants to see changes made to sites such as Instagram and Twitter, to stop the negativity from affecting people’s lives.

“I think social media is a breeding ground for toxicity and people creating false drama between women and trying to put women up against each other and create these narratives that are just… toxic,” she commented. “I think that has to change and that has to stop.

“I think there needs to be more people with platforms coming together and saying to each other, ‘Let’s kill the conversation, let’s kill the fake drama, let’s squash all these things, let’s move on from stuff. Let’s not give people a reason to fuel fire and create drama and being rude to each other.'”

Elsewhere in the interview, Hailey discussed her recent second wedding ceremony with the Sorry hitmaker, calling it the “highlight of my year”.

“I honestly just felt so happy; I was so content. There’s nothing like marrying the love of your life. It’s an indescribable feeling,” the 23-year-old sweetly shared.

The pair have yet to head off on an official honeymoon, but Hailey said their frequent travelling means they’re almost enjoying a constant post-wedding celebration.

“I think we travel enough where it’s kind of a honeymoon all of the time,” she smiled. “Just being with each other, just getting to spend time alone can feel like that. We love to do little trips, we love to go away for the night or the weekend. I love to travel.”

Selena Gomez has unveiled her third collection of athleisurewear for Puma.

The star was named as a brand ambassador for the sportswear giant back in 2018 and has since gone on to release two apparel and footwear lines.

Now, Selena has dropped her latest instalment for the company, with the range featuring versatile gym clothes and sporty footwear.

“This collection with Puma was one of my favourite ones to design,” the 27-year-old said. “I think the final product is beautiful, I feel so confident wearing it and hope everyone does too.”

The Selena Gomez x Puma autumn/winter 2019 collection will be available to purchase around the world on 1 December from select retailers, Puma stores, and the label’s website.

Items come in a colour palette of navy, pink, silver and white, with key footwear pieces including the SR Runner and the updated Cali, an evolution of the classic Puma California.

There is also the roomy SG Woven Jacket, a rugby-inspired piece with simple SG graphics, the SG Woven Pant, leggings, hoodies, and shorts. Accessories include a beanie and backpack.

“Selena and the team had a timeless, scholastic mindset when designing the collection. Still, the main inspiration was Gomez herself, as she always looks for neutral colours, comfortable materials, and versatile pieces,” a Puma representative added.

In addition to her Puma project, Selena is also gearing up to release her third solo studio album. The record is set to be unveiled on 10 January and will include the singles Lose You to Love Me and Look at Her Now.

On Tuesday, executives at the New York-based fashion and accessories label announced that the superstar has been tapped to front advertising campaigns for the leather goods, ready-to-wear, and footwear categories, beginning with the spring 2020 season.

“I’m so excited for this collaboration with Coach,” said Lopez. “It is a timeless brand that I’ve always been a fan of, and the upcoming collection really speaks to my personal style – an uptown downtown mix.”

And creative director Stuart Vevers is thrilled to have Lopez, a native of The Bronx borough, join the wider Coach family.

“Jennifer is so authentic. She’s determined and she’s an original who has followed her own path to do things her own way – she really embodies the attitude of Coach and our new campaign,” he praised of the 50-year-old. “I loved when Jennifer carried the Coach Signature bags in her 2002 video All I Have. She’s from New York like Coach, which creates another authentic connection with our heritage.”

Vevers also indicated that photographer Juergen Teller would be helming an upcoming photoshoot with Lopez.

The Hustlers actress follows in the footsteps of fellow Coach brand ambassadors including Selena Gomez and Michael B. Jordan.

Selena Gomez and Julia Michaels have cemented their friendship with matching tattoos.

The 27-year-old singer took to Instagram to share a picture of the moment she and Julia got inked with matching arrow etchings on their thumbs, writing: “It’s tatted.. my arrow points to you forever.”

Julia shared the same snap on her Instagram Stories, and captioned it: “Always to you baby. Love you @selenagomez.”

It’s understood that they were given the ink by tattoo artists Brad Reis and London Reese backstage at The Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles following Julia’s concert there on Monday night, during which Selena joined her on stage for a surprise duet of their collaboration Anxiety – which the pair wrote together along with Ian Kirkpatrick and Scott Harris.

Sitting on a bench together, the pair wrapped their arms around one another as they sang lyrics including: “Feel like I’m always apologising for feeling/Like I’m out of my mind when I’m doing just fine/And my exes all say that I’m hard to deal with/And I admit it, yeah.”

They ended their performance with a kiss, which Selena shared a picture of on her Instagram Stories alongside a black heart emoji.

After Monday’s concert, Julia posted a video of her and Selena’s performance on her Instagram page and expressed her disbelief at just how far she’s come as she wrote: “I’m kind of convinced these last few days aren’t real. Thank you @selenagomez for the most epic headline show I’ve ever played. I love you beyond words and I’m so happy we finally got to sing our baby together.”

Selena and Julia have long been friends and songwriting partners – Julia is credited as a co-writer on Selena’s new tunes Lose You to Love Me and Look at Her Now.

Selena Gomez felt ‘attacked’ by trolls after gaining weight during health battles

Selena Gomez felt “attacked” by online critics after gaining weight during her health battle.

The superstar was diagnosed with autoimmune disease lupus several years ago, and in summer 2017, received a kidney transplant from her friend Francia Raisa.

But while Selena tries to be open with her 160 million followers on Instagram, in a new chat with her pal Raquelle Stevens for the Giving Back Generation podcast, she recalled how she had a hard time dealing with mean comments about her changing figure as she recovered.

“I have lupus and deal with kidney issues and high blood pressure, so I deal with a lot of health issues and for me, that’s when I really started noticing more of the body image stuff,” she said, according to a preview given to Elle.com. “No, (the lupus doesn’t affect my weight) – it’s the combination of all of it. It’s the medication I have to take for the rest of my life – it depends on even the month, to be honest. So, for me, I really noticed when people started attacking me for that. In reality, that’s just my truth. I fluctuate. It depends what’s happening in my life. Right (it’s totally out of my control), and that got to me big time. I think for me, that really messed me up for a bit.”

Selena went on to explain that she is now trying her best to be “present” in her own life by participating in social media and attending red carpet events, but avoiding unnecessary time dwelling on what she looked like in photos.

“I want people to have a good relationship with social media. It’s not going anywhere anytime soon,” the 27-year-old insisted. “But knowing that real world’s in front of you and trying to pay attention to that is healthy. When I make an effort to post on social media or do what I’m doing, it’s important for me to make sure it’s 100 per cent authentic and once I post it, I post it. That’s it.”

Selena Gomez and her little sister wore matching outfits to the Frozen 2 premiere on Thursday night.

The 27-year-old stepped out at the world premiere of Disney’s highly-anticipated sequel in Hollywood, California alongside her sibling, six-year-old Gracie Teefey, with the pair both wearing wintery princess outfits by Marc Jacobs.

Selena wore her hair in loose braids, while both sisters sported matching white prairie dresses with bell sleeves printed with small blue flowers, and show-stopping dark grey sequinned cloaks lined with feathers.

Selena cuddled and kissed Gracie while walking hand-in-hand on the red carpet, which was attended by stars from the film including Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Josh Gad, Jonathan Groff, Evan Rachel Wood, and Sterling K. Brown.

Back in 2017, the Hands to Myself hitmaker paid tribute to Gracie with a heartwarming post on social media.

“I will forever let my sister know she is strong, bold and beautiful,” she wrote on Instagram. “She will be raised to know her voice matters. She is going to understand the importance behind being a leader and inspire others by her truth.”

Selena’s mother Mandy Teefey welcomed daughter Gracie in 2013 with second husband Brian Teefey.

She’s previously spoken about wanting to be a good role model for her sister and claimed her sibling even brings out her maternal side.

“I keep her very very protected. I mean, it’s instinctual,” the star explained. “She’s adorable. I’m obsessed with her and becoming a big sister. I know I’ve had the responsibility to be a role model for girls but, when you have a little sister of your own, you kinda think, ‘Okay, this is legit.'”
