Selena Gomez at Mizner Park Amphitheatre July 28
The Jonas Brothers have gone solo (or, um, serious) with their musical careers. Miley Cyrus has been caught on video smoking funny stuff and speaking in tongues. Demi Lovato has done a very public stint in rehab for various unpretty issues. That pretty much leaves Selena Gomez as the last hope for the Disney entertainment machine. And so far, she hasn't let down the brand's squeaky-clean image. As the star of the series The Wizards of Waverly Place and various, largely princess-themed movies, Gomez is pretty, perky, and inoffensive.
Of course, like all of her limelight predecessors, she's also a tireless workhorse, finding time to release albums, run various spinoff businesses, and do philanthropic work. Oh, and did we mention a little tabloid-chronicled teen romance with the Biebz? Sure, that scored her some Twitter jealousy. But it isn't dampening the ardor of the many fans who will doubtlessly pack Mizner Park Amphitheater this Thursday.
