Selena Gomez to Star in ‘Hot Mess’ Comedy

Selena GomezSelena Gomez is advancing into the world of movies with slightly older target demographics. Known primarily for The Wizards of Waverly Place, the nineteen year-old actress has already taken a mature step with the film Monte Carlo.

But I’m not sure what.

The variety of Urban Dictionary definitions of Hot Mess touch on mental disarray, physical attraction, unmistakeable disaster, and public intoxication. How exactly Selena Gomez, Dave Meyers and screenwriter Jenni Ross will pinpoint the true denotation of the all-encompassing term is as of yet a mystery. We’ll just have to wait and see…
