Selena Gomez On Turning 30 This Year: “I Couldn’t Be More Thrilled”

Selena Gomez is looking forward to hitting the big 3-0 this year!

The “Hotel Transylvania” star expressed her excitement about celebrating her 30th birthday on July 22, 2022. “I love growing up. When I was younger, I was scared of it, and I thought by now my life would look so different,” she said during an interview with PEOPLE Magazine.

“But now I’m like, ‘Wow, this is not what I ever expected, and I couldn’t be more thrilled.’ I’ve stopped caring about what people have to say, and that’s been wonderful.”

Aside from her birthday, Selena also gushed about receiving her first-ever Grammy nomination. “I’m so excited! It’s cool because I put my heart and soul into that album,” she said.

Her first Spanish-language album, entitled “Revalación,” is nominated for the “Best Latin Pop Album” category at the 64th Annual Grammy Awards. Other albums nominated in the same category include “Vértigo,” “Mis Amores,” “Hecho a la Antigua,” “Mis Manos,” and “Mendó.”

Selena admitted that although she’s not fluent in Spanish, she finds it easier “to sing in Spanish than it is to speak it.”

“I wanted to make sure that we were covering all the bases, that the words were beautiful, that it matched where I was in my life and that every little part of the song sounded authentic,” she added. “I couldn’t be more proud.”
