Celebrate Selena Gomez's 24th Birthday With a Look Back at Her Stunning Evolution

22 July 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Selena Gomez has created such a huge name for herself as a singer, big-screen actress, and style star that it's easy to forget that she got her start on the Disney Channel, playing the lead role of Alex Russo on Wizards of Waverly Place from 2008 to 2012. The young songstress turns 24 on July 22 and like any child star trying to navigate their way through adulthood in the public eye, Selena's life hasn't been without pitfalls; she spent time in a treatment center for two weeks back in January 2014, a stay that her rep said was "not for substance abuse," and has been at the center of rumors concerning her famous friendships with Taylor Swift, Kendall Jenner, and Demi Lovato, as well as her on-again, off-again romance with Justin Bieber (and let's not even get started on his recent career setbacks). While Selena's journey has included its fair share of ups and downs, »

Any dedicated Selena fan knows her character, Alex Russo, on the hit show Wizards of Waverly Place is the epitome of cool. Not only is she chock-full of sarcastic comebacks, but she's also super relatable (aside from the whole magic thing, of course).

Kids' Shows You Wish Were Still On

25 May 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Nobody wants to admit it, but the TV shows you watch as a kid help shape your personality as an adult. Sure, there are lots of other factors, like your friends, family, and siblings, but for kids who were allowed television time -- or sneak-watched while at a friend's house -- TV shows were a vital part of shaping your worldview. From "The Powerpuff Girls" kicking butt in Townsville to the magic of the "Wizards of Waverly Place," kids shows that are no longer on the air were downright fascinating. Well, most of them.

That isn't to say kids' shows today aren't just as awesome as the classics. There's always "Adventure Time's" brilliance or the galactic plot lines of "Star Wars Rebels," but nothing compares to watching Miley Cyrus pretend to be two different people with only a wig to tell "them" apart. Of course, child stars grow up, »

9 February 2016 2:14 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After recently learning that The CW finally ordered a pilot episode for the subversive take on Archie Comics known as Riverdale, we all knew that casting news would not be far off. While the man himself, Archie Andrews, has yet to be cast, we now know who will play some of his closest friends.

The first role that has been confirmed to have been filled is that of one of Archie’s longtime love interests, Betty Cooper. Lili Reinhart (Surviving Jack, The Kings of Summer) will play the small town’s favorite malt sipping blonde who is described as “sweet, studious, eager-to-please and wholesome with a huge crush on her longtime best friend, Archie. Tired of being the perfect daughter, student, sister, etc., she turns to her new friend, Veronica, for life advice — much to the consternation of her emotionally brittle mother.”

Meanwhile, Jughead Jones, whom Archie Comics recently launched a solo series for, »
