Turn on the radio, change the TV channel or even open an Internet browser and chances are you'll run into Selena Gomez. Between her new album, tour and general celebrity, the D-FW-raised pop star has been everywhere.
But this Saturday, June 18, Gomez will be returning to where it all began when she brings the Revival Tour to American Airlines Center in Dallas. She'll have help from openers DNCE, which is fronted by fellow North Texan Joe Jonas, and Bahari.
And as the show is a welcome home of sorts -- there's even an official #WelcomeHomeSelena hashtag -- we decided to chronicle the singer's journey over the last year. It's certainly been an eventful one!
So put in your headphones and rock out to this Revival Tour Spotify playlist as we dial it back 12 months to see Gomez's the whirlwind of a year.
Last June, Selena began her revival with the track "Good For You."
The song, a collaboration with rapper A$AP Rocky that Gomez herself called "sensual" and "confident," came with an equally as tantalizing music video. If there's anything that says, "I mean business," it's certainly a steamy shower scene.
In July, the once Disney Channel darling turned 23 years old.
Did you know Gomez was named after Tejano singer Selena Quintanilla-Perez? She, quite literally, was born to be a star.
In October, she opened up to the world about her lupus diagnosis.
"I was diagnosed with lupus, and I've been through chemotherapy," Gomez told Billboard in a cover story last fall. "That's what my break [in 2013/2014] was really about. I could've had a stroke."
Then later that month,the singer released her second studio effort, Revival.
GuideLive's music critic Hunter Hauk lauded the album for its cohesiveness and ability to "build as organically as modern pop songs can, and feature a voice that blends in rather than stands out. Say what you want about that, but it works beautifully ..."
Last December, Gomez nearly broke the Internet with the video for "Hands to Myself."
Fans were so anxious to see the video, they spent the better parts of two days stalking Gomez on Twitter, waiting for its release. Ironically, the singer was also doing some stalking -- in "Hands to Myself" she goes on a manhunt for model Chris Mason.
In January, Gomez made her Saturday Night Live debut.
And boy was that something to talk about! The singer kept it classy for her first number, a medley of "Goor For You" and "Same Old Love," before getting handsy with a pair of dancers for "Hands to Myself."
Then in March, she narrowly escaped being stuck in an elevator -- gasp!
While on a trip in Paris, Gomez got stuck in an elevator. But no worries, she lived to tweet about it.
Later that month, the pop star was dubbed the official Queen of Instagram.
Selena surpassed Taylor Swift, the Kardashians and Beyonce with 70.8 million followers. As of this writing, she's up to 84.4 million.
In May, Gomez kicked off her Revival Tour and dropped a new tune.
According to Billboard, it's called "Feel Me," and there's a good chance we might hear it in Dallas Saturday.
Here we are a year later and Selena shows no signs of stopping. Just last week, she premiered a new music video for "Kill Em With Kindness."
She can even makes sadness look sexy. How does she do that?!
