Selena Gomez is a CNN Hero

Selena Gomez is a CNN Hero

Disney starlet Selena Gomez hugs new pal Maria Ruiz from El Paso, Texas after awarding her the HERO award at the Second Annual CNN Heroes: An All Star Tribute held at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood on Saturday.

Several times a week, Ruiz crosses the border into Juarez, Mexico, bringing food, clothing and toys to hundreds of impoverished children and their families. What a heart!

The 16-year-old Wizards of Waverly Place star looked all sophisticated in a ruffled BCBG white top, pencil skirt and simple black pumps!

    WOW!!! I love Selena from the beginning and I’m always gonna love her!! Her hair is so cute and it’s so perfect for her!!! Her outfits always match her and it’s for her age on being sophistaced! People say that selena is copying miley in ways but unlike miley, selena is trying different things that are good not slutty and bad! Both miley and sel are awesome, but i rather prefer selena who i think cares about the issues… she’s so caring and down to earth!

    i’m glad she’s at least TRYING something new :)

  • lovebug

    & shut up you idiots.

    LOTS of people get bangs.
    i got them a couple months back, is she copying me too?!

    it’s just hair idiots.
    stop TRYING to stir stuff up between miley & selena because nothing interessting is happening in you’re pathetic lives.
