Happy 23rd, Selena Gomez!
In honor of the "Birthday" girl's big day, we dug up the former Disney star's Wizards of Waverly Place audition tape – and it's adorable.
As a little girl, she used to mimic other Disney stars by performing their well-known commercial lines at home – reciting, "I'm Selena, and you're watching the Disney Channel!" while drawing the famous mouse logo with a glow stick serving as her magic wand.
Fast forward a few years, and her dream came true, as Gomez spent a five-year stint playing Alex on the popular Disney show.
Today, the actress-turned-singer has several chart-toppers, from "Come and Get It" to her new single "Good For You" ft. A$AP Rocky, which will appear on her upcoming album. On Wednesday, she revealed the title and release date for the new record in an Instagram clip – Revival is due Oct 9.
