Is Selena Gomez Mexican?

I discovered Selena Gomez just recently in the Disney show Wizards of Waverly Place.
Selena Gomez looks Mexican, her skin color and face share are very particular. So I'd like to know if she was born in Mexico.
Or maybe she was born in another latin american country like Puerto Rico?
Also, can she speak Spanish?

Selena Gomez is not mexican. She was born on July 22, 1992 in New York City, New York. Her parents are called Mandy Cornett and Ricardo Gomez.
Her family is kind of mexican so that's why she looks mexican. When she was young, she moved from New York to a small town called Grand Prairie, in Texas.
Selena Gomez is my favorite actress. She began her career when she was seven, playing Gianna in the children's TV series Barney & Friends.
I love her so much.

Your questions is worded in a way that makes you sound ignorant. Being Latino (in this case, Mexican) is NOT synonymous with someones skin color, hair, eyes, etc. Latinos from Mexico, Central, and South America can be white, black, asian, mixed, native... anything really. But to answer your question, yes. Selena is American of Mexican and Italian descent.

Sorry if this sounded like a rant, I'm just sick of people giving being latino some sort of racial value based on sterotypes the media puts out to the masses.

As a response:
Yes but stereotypes are most always true, you pointed that out yourself, even if you didn't mean to. I think it is you that is the ignorant one.

answered by Guest | 07-22-2009 at 02:44 AM

just stating the facts
I don't see how that sounds ignorant. She is Mexican American with Italian heritage too. And yes, hispanic's are a mix of races, so you can't really always judge a book by it's cover.

answered by Guest2 | 07-23-2009 at 08:23 PM

Mexicans are not asian, they can be anything else but not asians. I've yet to see a mexican with that plus, if an asian is born in mexico that doesn't mean they are mexican it just means they were born there. Mexicans don't have asian blood, so don't say that that is an INSULT

answered by Guest | 08-08-2009 at 04:22 AM

Uhm well, my birth certificate says i'm mexican, my mom is mexican and my dad is chinese (so i obviously have asian blood), OF COURSE you can be mexican AND asian!

answered by Guest | 08-12-2009 at 09:17 PM

It doesn't matter how you look like, or where you come from, if you look from an especific heritage or with especial features, be proud of it, and for the ones who are not exotic looking ( I mean it in a good way) respect the origin of the races.

answered by Guest | 08-19-2009 at 01:47 PM

If Selena Gomez was born in New York city does not technically mean she is american!!!! her father is MEXICAN and her mother is italian.. sooo that mean she MIXED!!! Mexican and italian!!! duh people shes not american.. her last name is not Johnson or whatever. her last name is GOMEZ and GOMEZ is a hispanic last name! Even though she was born in U.S does not make her AMERICAN..

answered by Guest | 08-28-2009 at 03:33 PM

I am French...My Mom is from france my dad is from france but i was given birth in a asian country Pakistan.....so that does not mean that i am a pakistani!!....i am 100% french!...it doesnt matter in which state you were born in....the main nationality is from your parents!

Is Selena Gomez mexican?
umm everyone stfu who cares if mexican is not latino?

answered by Aguilas del America | 10-07-2009 at 07:31 PM

Ok first it doesn't matter what race selena is all that matters is that she is very sweet and pretty. So if she is mexican there is nothing wrong with that and if someone is born in a different place then what their parents are makes them 25% of their race. So that makes selena gomez 50% mexican 25% italian and 25% american so there. Does that answer your question?

answered by nunuluvzyuh | 10-28-2009 at 03:47 PM

First off, the facts are facts. Selena Gomez is HALF Mexican, and Italian. Does she act, or look mexican? No. Just because her name is Gomez, doesn't make her any more latin. She is what she is, and that is HALF.

But to be more sarcastic...

She is 30 percent italian, 10 percent mexican, and and the rest BOLOGNE. LOL

Sincerely, a Selena Gomez hater.

About Selena
Hi everybody, I`m writing from Mexico and feel i should reply this Cause is a fact that Selena has mexican(50%) heritage and italian too(25% & 25%). And that was exactly the reason cause Sel was choosen to be the Waverly Place Wizard's Star. Davd Henrie is included too due to his italian ascendent. It`s a kind of show with a smart target, the inmigrants and the american common audience too. It is the amazing Disney`s marketing. t`s a way to achieve the inmigrant identification with a Star. Actually, i love Selena and I`m a fan and Im proud of be mexican. And here, the mexicans are a mix by definition, here came people from Spain (only Castellans) and some frenchs an here where I live there are german people. Of course the natives too. I`m brown but I have white cousins and a blonde aunt.
I really like she was mexican but I`m afraid that she isn`t . She has mexican ascendence and heritage, but she only lived 5 years with her dad. And about the italian descendent is less strong, cause the real italian descendent is her mom. So, she is american with mexican ascendent. She dont speak spanish. Also it doesn`t matter what is her heritage, if she is gorgeous , swetty and talentous, and a "important thing" she was proud of her heritage and about the country where she lives. Because the blood and the enviromental, made her, the amazing person she is.
Everyboby `d respect the countries whose heritage made us who we are.
I`m proud of be mexican, refering to a big mix. Alsoo in Spain have a mix too, when thay was dominated for ottomans-turks. In the last days i`ve been analized this kind of issues anf i get a conclusion. The race is not the most important thing, but the culture and customes.
I love you Selena Gomez, I`m your mexican #1 fan.

Love people for who they are No for wher come from Or where her blood come from.

I want to be honest, your dark hair and that special mexican charm and your swetty face, make me love you. I will always gonna be your fan although U R`nt 100% mexican.

no,im not sorry
Hi, it's me selena and im not a mexican I have friends that are mexicans but im only american sorry but it's the truth. God bless and bye.

answered by Selena Gomez | 11-21-2009 at 11:47 PM

Please
I`m mexican and although that hurts me. Selena is american with mexican ascendence mmm only through her dad.
I have 2 special friends here in Mexico Harry & Takeshi , Harry have american ascendence but his entire life had been here in Mexico and Harry feel like a mexican no from USA. Only his father is from USA. And the Takeshi`s mom is japanese. I had meet Takeshi for years and he doesn`t speak japanese at all, and probably he feels more mexican than me, also i know speak in japanese better than him. Once i made a question about her japanese heritage and Takeshi is happy here in Mexico and he wants to follow living here.
It isn`t strange she doesn`t feel like a mexican if she know nothing about mexicans and Mexico. But that doesn`t matter she is gorgeus and smart. I love Sel.

And I can`t ask for something to my favorite star if i have mexican friends that doesn`t have mexican blood. They feel mexican and is great. I would like me tell to Sel If she doesn`t feel just a bit of mexican please Don`t lie. We are going to understand although you show had been craeted for inmigrants. I love you Sel

I don`t believe in the last reply, PLEASE don`t sign like Selena Gomez.
She has interviews, tv shows etc. to expresse her thoughs.

Think about it..
She's a good 75% American because Mexico is part of North America hahaha

Anyways, until she is 18, she is officially an American (50%) since she was born here.

She is 25% Italian and 25% Spanish.

Good day

answered by Guest | 12-11-2009 at 09:08 PM

OMG, people is REALLY ignorant or simply retarded!

To the person who said that latinos can't look asian. OF COURSE there are latinos that look asian! We are mixed with MANY races. I'm a fair skinned Latin American for example, my neighbor is a mixed one and you can't really tell if he's Italian or what, then there's my other neighbors, the father is asian and the mother dark skinned latina, the children look asian with dark skin. So there. Then there are many creole, mulattos, indians mixed with african latin americans, latinos with whites, indians with whites, asians, well, you mention it and there we are mixed. Races mixed. There isn't one that looks exactly the same in big cities.

answered by Guest | 12-14-2009 at 04:08 AM

Selena Gomez, is half Mexican and half Italian. She is considered an Italo-Mexican born in the U.S., that's why she is considered an American.
Note:
Mexicans are thought to be the lower class of Latinos, which is utterly garbage. The Anglo's are just upset because Mexicans haven't sold themselves out to white america, like other latinos have. Puerto Rico is a prime example. That's why so many Americans are in denial of Selena's heritage. Just know, she is not an Anglo.
Furthermore, her father and maybe her mother, were fans of Selena Quintanilla, so that's probably reason she was given the name. But the point is she is more Mexican, than people would like to believe, which is sad, because people should except her for what she is. Nonetheless, she probably could careless because she is making big dollars anyway.

Point taken, obviously if you are a registered citizen in that country, you are that race...well that is America though. Sure she is of other races decent, but she is 100% AMERICAN. Jesus Christ people like it really matters that much anyways though.

Selena Gomez was named after Selena(A singer that died a long time ago).

oh and by the way, mexicans can look asian and can have asian blood.
my aunt is mexican(100%) and my uncle is Japanese (100%) my cousin is half asian and
half mexican.
My other aunt who is also from mexico married a white guy but they're newlyweds so they
haven't had kids yet.

me, I'm mexican and half (something) and everyone thinks i look asian because of my dad.
my dad was an orphan so he doesn't know what he 100% is.
There is a lot of asians with mexican last names and that live there too and

answered by Lizbeth Z | 04-08-2010 at 08:38 PM

My parents are both Mexican but born and raised in Texas. My grandparents on both sides were born and raised in Mexico. I was born and raised in Minnesota. I grew up there when no other Mexicans were around yet. I didn't have a chance to interact with any other Mexicans and didn't learn their culture nor how to speak Spanish. Most whites think I am white. They say that I look and speak like I am one of them. I am very light complected like Selena yet have dark hair. Just because I am light, have high cheekbones, speak English properly and don't have a big butt....does not make me white. lol. I am extremely proud to call myself "Mexican" and disregard that BS of being called Hispanic just because I was born here. The most racist thing that anyone can say is "well if Selena is Mexican then she must speak Spanish". So if you have German or Russian Heritage, then you should be able to speak the language too....just because of your race....doesn't seem very intelligent does it? Especially if you were raised in English-speaking schools.

Really? cause i'd be very embarrassed to be American lol. More than half your population is over weight or fat, you are ignorant and think your 100% american, when unless you're full native you're family came her from a European, African, or Asian country a few hundred years ago, you think British people have accents, when you guys are the one's with the accent. Haha, British English is the original English, your presidents and governments are responsible for the problems of most of the world, you think tacos are this things they sell at taco bell, you think pizza looks like that in Italy too when its actually totally different, you have some of the dumbest children in the world (not saying all american kids are dumb excuse me for generalizing) considering how low your school education quality is. You call your country America, when America is the name of your continent. And worst of all you think that being born in U.S.A makes you Caucasian/white ha-ha-ha please don't make me laugh.

Oh and by the way, Selena is an American-born Mexican-Italian, she said it herself in an interview, those of you who keep saying she's not Mexican; that she is 100% American, then you must be either very ignorant, racist bastards, or 9-year-olds in your mommy's laptop.

accidentally read this thread, just to clarify you guys are mistaking nationality with ethnicity/race, you can be American (your nationality) and be Mexican or Asian or whatever. If you are a citizen of America then you are 100% American (unless you have dual citizenship), but you can be of any race/ethnicity. I am way too old to be posting on this thread!!

This is for that person that wrote she/he would hate to be mexican:

**** YOU *****!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
YOUR A DISGRACE TO THIS WORLD ANYWAYS!!!!!!!!!
DON'T LIKE MEXICANS, KEEP YOUR OPINIONS TO YOURSELF YOU DUMB-****!!

answered by Angie | 05-19-2010 at 09:29 PM

Who knows
She's a mix of lots of things. In order to find out exactly what she is you would need to see who her parents parents were and there parents all the way up til the beginning of man. Also you are a an American if you live in America it doesn't matter what ethnicity you are. If you live in America you are American.

Also he is related to selena gomez and i have met and talk to her in person. She said that she is half Mexican. So all them haters out please don't be haters because she is not white or black. soo i know Selena she told me everything sooo byeeeeeeee all them haters. and I'm not lying my sister's husbands last name is gomez. Sooooo woot woot she is MEXICAN haha!!

love, selena's biggest #1 fan ever

answered by Guest | 06-20-2010 at 05:17 PM

Just saying my opinion
Selena is part Mexican and part Italian. I'm Mexican American. my mom was born in Mexico so that makes me Mexican. My dad's parents were born in Mexico but he was born here in the USA so that makes him Mexican American. If you were born in a different country than your parents, then your part of the race that your parents were born from, and your also part of the race of the country you were born in. So that makes Selena Mexican, Italian, AND AMERICAN. Anyways, it does not matter where Selena comes from. That's her business, not ours. Selena is nice,pretty, and a GREAT person. That's all that really matters.

Rock on Selena!

answered by Guest | 06-26-2010 at 01:51 AM

Um you are ALL ignorant and really stupid if you think that if you're from a certain place that your mexican/American/Itallian etc. Nooo If you're like Asian and born in America, you're an American citizen yes but you're still ASIAN! You can be a Native American or an American Indian though. Gosh! UGH!

selenagomez
on her Wikipedia page, it says she was actually born in Texas, not in new york.

answered by Guest | 07-21-2010 at 11:02 PM

I'm pretty sure she's spanish.

answered by Guest | 07-23-2010 at 03:34 AM

Holy Cow, how old do you have to be?
Yes, if you are born in America it does actually mean your an American, even if you were born in a plane 10000 feet over the country. The rules in America are, if your born here your American. I don't know about in Mexico but if one of your parents are Mexican you can become a Mexican citizen if you want to. Some places like Germany don't make you a citizen because you are born there. Some places like America do.

Your name, like Gomez, Obama, Jackson or whatever do not make you a citizen of any place.

selena gomez
Ok ignorant people your nationality is from you are born...if you were born in America guess what your American if you were born in Mexico wow your Mexican...why do you think a lot of women want their children to be born in the United States so they'll be citizens...wow the ignorance is amazing...I was born in the united states my mother is Puerto Rican and my father is Dominican but I am 100% American with Latin American parents.. do some research people you are from were your birth certificate says you are look it up

Selena Gomez is Mexican
Yes, it's true, Selena Gomez is Mexican because of her father, he arrived to USA like an immigrant and he met his wife who is from Italy. She works in the theater, but they got divorced. Selena Gomez stayed with her mom and doesn't know how to speak spanish.
That's why Selena Gomez looks like Mexican, she's very normal and pretty.

this is the truth

answered by EL MERO MERO | 08-13-2010 at 05:23 AM

i think that Selena was a great singer and i wish that she was still here with us.

answered by Guest | 08-23-2010 at 05:41 AM

Yes she is mexican. Her last name is Spanish too.
She is half latina and latina is not a race its a culture.
Many of them are white.

This is the truth.

answered by Guest | 08-23-2010 at 09:47 AM

I think all that really matters is how an individual identifies themselves.
