Young actress Selena Gomez isn’t trying to be in the tabloids everyday like Lindsay Lohan. She says she lives a pretty “boring” life, which is how she manages to stay out of gossip rags. She also revealed that she wants to follow in the footsteps of fellow actress Rachel McAdams and that she’d love to have a career like the movie star. Selena said:

“I would love to model my career after hers. She’s brilliant. She chooses smart roles, reinvents herself for every role. I admire that and hope I’m able to do that myself in my career. I’m boring. I spend time with my family, hang out with my mom and with a few friends. That’s what works for me. Boring.

“My mom doesn’t want me to grew up too fast. I’m 18, but younger than that at heart. I’m not going to do anything that I’m not comfortable doing. I’m fully aware of my audience. I may hope and dream of having an older audience some day, for my film and TV work and my music. But now, the people who have been with me over the past four years are these 7 to 15-year-olds who have given me my job. If a little girl tells her mom, ‘I want to see the new Selena Gomez movie’ or ‘buy the new Selena Gomez CD,’ I would hope that their parents could say ‘absolutely’ without having to second-guess it or second-guess me.

“So there’s a transition coming. I’m just not there yet.”
