Everyone has heard her on the radio, seen one of her movies, and seen her beautiful red-carpet looks. Selena Gomez is no stranger to the spotlight, from films, TV, music, and even fashion. After getting her start on Barney & Friends, Selena quickly got bigger roles such as Alex Russo in Wizards of Waverly Place. She also starred in Another Cinderella Story, Spring Breakers, and the Hotel Transylvania franchise (via IMDb).
Gomez first got into music over a decade ago, with the 2008 band Selena Gomez & The Scene. Honestly, that name is a total throwback, because, since they split in 2012, Selena Gomez has made a name for herself on the music scene (via AllMusic). She’s had chart hits such as “Come & Get it,” “Rare,” “Hands to Myself,” “Bad Liar,” and “Lose You to Love Me,” to name a few. Sadly, she announced her possible retirement in music in March 2021.
However, there’s very little Selena Gomez can’t do. Despite possibly leaving music behind, her new beauty collection, Rare Beauty, recently launched and made enormous waves in the beauty community. Along with that, fans are obsessing over her HBO cooking show, Selena + Chef (via Seventeen). At only 28, it seems like she’s done almost everything already.
She makes six figures for every Instagram post
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Selena Gomez has a net worth of $75 million. With everything Gomez has done, it’s not a shock that she earns a ridiculous amount. But some of you may wonder how she got such a substantial check at such a young age. During her time at Wizards of Waverly Place, she supposedly made $30,000 per episode (via Money Inc).
Along with getting paychecks from TV/film and music, Gomez made about $800,000 per Instagram post back in 2018, per Insider. This was, of course, before Gomez stepped back from the social media platform in 2019 (via BBC News). If your jaws haven’t dropped yet, though, get ready because she makes more than $30 million for her Puma campaign and $10 million for her Coach campaign (via E!). Not only that, but she’s grossed over $20 million each from her world tours.
Due to her booming paycheck, Selena Gomez dived into the world of real estate at a pretty young age.
She got into real estate at only 19
At 19, Selena Gomez bought a gorgeous starter home in Tarzana for $2.2 million in 2011. Around an acre of land, five bedrooms, and eight bathrooms, it was an amazing home for the young starlet. After her starter home, Gomez moved right into yet another stunning property. In the star-studded Calabasas neighborhood, she purchased a $3.7 million that showed over 7,000 acres and a swoon-worthy closet (via Love Money).
Then around the time she revealed her lupus diagnosis, the Texas native purchased a lavish, gated home back in her home state. The home comprised tons of rustic ambiance, an open-plan entertaining space, and even an outdoor kitchen, according to The Dallas Morning News. However, she quickly sold the mansion for a Studio City home in 2017 that went for $2.2 million. The colorful home was smaller than her other mansions and didn’t last long either (via Trulia).
Today, she lives in an Encino home that has made everyone envious. Her Los Angeles property is the pinnacle of beauty, with 11,500 square feet. In early 2020, she bought the sprawling mansion for almost $5 million. The star lives in luxury with skylights, two master suites, a yoga studio, a gym, and a vocal booth (via Elle).
