Selena Gomez's 'awkward transition' to mature star

Selena Gomez's 'awkward transition' to mature star

Selena Gomez says her transition from Disney star to mature actress has been "a little awkward".

The 20-year-old actress stars as a college student gone wild in new movie 'Spring Breakers', which features drugs, sex and violence and admitted the transition from the star of kid friendly 'Wizards of Waverly Place' has been "weird".

She said: "I am getting a little bit older, so I wanted to push myself and kind of get into a little bit more of an indie world. And it was a really great experience for me. And at the same time it has been, of course, a little awkward, but great.

"Honestly, it's been a weird transition. You never really know what's right or wrong and you can only do the best you can."

It was recently revealed Selena - who dumped Justin Bieber in January after struggling to maintain a "normal" relationship - is ready to move on and wants someone more mature than the 19-year-old 'As Long As You Love Me' hitmaker.

A source said: "Selena is looking to date an older man this time. She finally sees how toxic it was to date a toddler like Justin.

"Selena is doing really well and feels like a weight has been lifted off her shoulders now that Justin is out of the picture. She finds Justin to be embarrassing since their breakup. He's turned into exactly the kind of person she'd never want to be with."
