The 19-year-old `Love You Like a Love Song` hitmaker - who recently wrapped filming on comedy `Spring Breakers` - has decided to put her singing on the backburner while she makes a name for herself in Hollywood.
She explained: "I`m just kind of halting music for a bit. [I`ve] been really focused on more acting. "For me it`s been fun to take risks and do things that are completely different. To be honest, maybe some of you guys might not be comfortable with it - I`m still the same person. Things that challenge me really excite me."
But that doesn`t mean the former Disney star won`t be reuniting with the other members of her band SelenaGomez & the Scene to create more music in the future.
She told MTV News: "I`m doing another movie called `The Getaway` with Ethan Hawke. It`s really, really exciting. So we`re doing that and then hopefully another movie, but that hasn`t really been confirmed yet.
"Then I`ll start working on my fourth album, which will be the best album I`ll ever do!"
