When you’re ready, go and get it

Looks like Justin Bieber forgot to put a ring on it, because Selena Gomez is saying buh-bye to the Biebs and hello to the life of a single lady. After recently calling it quits with her on-and-off boyfriend of 2 years, she’s used the inspiration from her broken heart to bust out 11 songs for her new album “Stars Dance.” Most recently, Billboard has announced that the 21-year-old actress/singer has officially received her very first number 1 title on the Billboard 200 chart! The album sold 97,000 copies in its first week, beating out Jay Z’s “Magna Carta… Holy Grail” for the top spot.

To show her gratitude, Selena Gomez tweeted, “I just want to say thank you all for an amazing birthday week. The success of this album has been the greatest gift!”

So, a very happy congratulations and belated birthday to Selena Gomez! We’re proud to see a young star getting recognition that doesn’t involve a repeat of Justin’s synchronized spitting routine. Check back this Friday for my official review of her album.
