There are people they call triple threats in the world because they have not one or two but three great talents, and Selena Gomez is one of them. 

Not only is she gorgeous enough to pass as a model and dancer, but she is a talented singer with hits to her name and is also a versatile actress who was able to transition from a Disney child star playing princess-worthy roles to a woman bringing mature characters to life in films that have defined pop culture. Below are some of her best works.

1. Another Cinderella Story (2008)
