Selena Gomez and her mom, Mandy Teefey, said good bye to friends and family in Grand Praisie, Texas to start a new life in Los Angeles after hearing the life changing news of Selena's new role on Wizards. In various interviews, Selena describes her homelife with the Selena Gomez family in Grand Prairie, a suburb of Dallas Texas, to be very quiet and centered around church and picnics in the park. Selena also refers to her grandmother as being a big part of her life. The many Dr Seuss stories, Selena's grandmother read to her as a young child helped her excell in her speaking role as the voices of the Mayor of Whoville's 90 daughters in Dr. Seus's Horton Hears a Who. Now Selena is making headlines off stage with being romantically linked to Justin Bieber, the teen heart throb breaking hearts around the world with this Bieber Fever Madness.
