Selena Gomez Promotes Cell Phone-Free Safety

Selena Gomez Promotes Cell Phone-Free Safety

Selena Gomez may not have her license just yet, but she’s already promoting safe driving by putting down her cell phone.

The 16-year-old Wizards leading lady recently shot a public service announcement commercial about it and told People, “Don’t do a thousand things in your car! In the car, just focus on what you need to be doing.”

She continues, “I’ve almost been in wrecks because of people [using phones while driving]. I’ll sit there and look at someone and go, ‘Gosh! She completely almost ran into us,’ then look at her and see she’s on the phone. That’s the reason!”

Selena‘s PSA, which also features mom Mandy, will air on the Disney Channel and can be viewed on State Farm Insurance’s website in March.

  • sabrinaa

    awww! i love selena!!!!! i like how she cares. SELENA: PLEASE DONT TURN inTO MILEY. but anyways. i bet she wont. shes smart enough not to do that. psssh!!!

  • hello

    she rocks :)
    i love her

  • http://myspace.com/youth4cancer Listen to mayday parade

    FYI its easier said then done.

    She doesn’t drive, so she has no idea.
    Plus she has a driver so she doesn’t have an excuse to need to rive her self and use her phone.

    Good for her to promote it, but honestly, its just some idiots that can’t master driving and talking but more of us can.

  • http://myspace.com/youth4cancer Listen to mayday parade

    #7 lol uhm she gets PAID to do stuff like this. Its not like she did it out of the kindness of her heart… She was told what to say.

    She is still awesome, but she wouldn’t do this for free.. So don’t fool yourself by thinking she cares that much.

  • go selena.

    that’s what you mean by role model..
    tell people the right thing to do.
    and she’s doing a good job with it :)
    i love her

  • marie.

    who cares if she got paid?
    at least she’s telling us the good stuff
    not the other way around.
    she’s cool.

    GO SELENA

  • go selena.

    awesome :)

  • http://myspace.com/youth4cancer Listen to mayday parade

    yeah but it doesnt mean she believes it…
    seriously its easier said then done
    lets wait til she has bee driving a bit and then see if she follows the rule.

  • http://myspace.com/youth4cancer Listen to mayday parade

    ps. i dont hate her at all.. im just saying this whole cell phone rule and promoting it is a little off since she doesnt even drive yet and has no idea what its like to drive with a cell in your hand.

    pss. i totally text and drive all the time, its easy. people that cant do it are dumb.. multitasking is something everyone should be able to do in this day and age

  • go selena.

    well she’s just telling us to make sure
    so we cant get into accident.
    she just trying to remind us !!!

    ya you dont hate her, but your acting like
    your too smart to be reminded from a 16 years old kid.

    who cares?
    she’s jusst not taling about,
    she’s also talkign to careless people!!

  • SELENa fan

    YOUR AMAZING SEL..

    YOUR MY ROLE MODEL.

    I LOVE YOU

  • 17fan

    #11. Wow, so Selena can’t do anything for the sake of the world without being accused of doing it for money? That’s just stupid. STUPID.

  • http://ca.youtube.com/user/TrueTeenPopStarLover Austin

    I love you selena :-) Im always thinking of you :-) Peace! :-)

  • Krissy

    BEAUTIFUL!
    JUST SIMPLY AMAZING!
    GO SELENA!
    She’s like the best role model out there!
    i swear —- my gosh!
    telling us what to do
    how to do it
    and giving us the right reasons , and not the wrong
    protecting our society from harm and danger and making us ALL see ,what we should have seen a long time ago

    THAT’S BRILLIANT!
    They def choose the right person to explain herself so well with words :)
    So inspirational<3
    LOVE U SEL!

    So what? i don’t know how to drive yet, or have a cellphone but i still know what’s happening know a days. It’s great to get everyone involved, with what they DO or DON’T know. And to me, selena knows what she’s talking about— since we ALL see it happening.
    Also having someone who doesn’t have their permit, is an even more better way to show the world – the true meaning of driving SAFE! ( to those, who DO have there permit)

    i agree with whoever said , she gets paid on doing her work and being a spokesperson.
    MOST celebs get paid to what they do..
    why can’t selena?
    if this was for free, sure it would be sweet and REALLY cheap
    but it wasn’t her choice, to do it by herself
    Like most of you said- she was told what to say, like a real person.
    At least, WE all know , selena has a BIG heart, who cares that much into helping those with a serious matter. ( explain to me, why else, she decided to carry on this message and make it more important than usual)?

    xoxoxoxo
    KEEP ROCKING SEL!
    your amazing @ everything
    to what you do!
    =]

  • Rochel

    GO SELENA

    IM WITH YOU.
    MY MOM WAS CROSSING AT THE STOP LIGHT AND WAS HIT
    BY A CAR.
    THE BOY WAS 19 AND ON HIS CELL PHONE.
    MY MOM LEG WAS BROKEN SO BAD SHE HAD ALL KINDS OF METAL
    SCREWS AND METAL PLATES PUT IN.
    SHE IS ON HER 3RD SURGERY JUST SO SHE CAN WALK.
    SHE SAVED HER OWN LIFE BY LOOKING FOR CARS EVEN IN THE CROSSWALK.
    I HAVE BEEN ALMOST HIT BY CARS IN THE CROSSWALKS AND GUESS WHAT
    THOSE PEOPLE WERE ON THEIR CELL PHONES…..
    SO I SUPPORT SELENA FULLY..
    PEOPLE SHOULD NOT BE ON THEIR CELL PHONES WHEN THEY ARE DRIVING.
    WALKING AND TEXTING ISNT SAFE EITHER.
    MY SISTER RAN INTO A GUY ON A BIKE TEXTING ANF GOT HURT REALLY BAD.
    SO EVERYONE OUT THEIR PLEASE DONT DRIVE AND BE ON YOUR CELL PHONE….

  • EVERY1ROXX

    YOU TELL em “Krissy” !!! lol

  • Kaylee

    the driving w/ a cell law is stupid. First of all driving requires two hands on the wheel period. Also, what is so important that u have to txt while driving? You need to pay attention to the road and not multitask thats how people get hurt.

  • SELENa fan

    go krissy you rock

  • http://www.justjaredjr.com Nicky Jonas

    I really dont like her I dont think shes talented or pretty but I do have to say shes a pretty infulencial girl for doing this. And Selena fans dont get me wrong thanx! :D

  • Michelle

    Seriously, the best role model for her age. Selena and Dakota Fanning are the best role models for young girls.

  • Riley

    #16, you are dumb. Being able to drive and multitask should not be used in the same sentence. My close friend got hit by a car while walking to class last year. The person driving the car was on their phone. Oh yeah, that person really knew how to multitask. He was able to drive, talk on the phone and hit my friend all in less than 2 mins.

    Mayday Parade is a good band though.

  • selena?

    ew.

  • http://www.justjaredjr.com Nicky Jonas

    #28 I hate to be nosy but did your friend live? if you dont like to talk about it than you do have to tell me.

  • http://myspace.com/youth4cancer Listen to mayday parade

    i get some people cant do it, but its honestly not hard to pay attention o driving and be on your cell.. maybe im one in a million for being able to do it, but i can.

    and yesss finally someone knows who mayday parade is :)

  • Riley

    #29, my friend did live. He ended up breaking his left leg. He likes to laugh about the accident nowadays.

    Oh, I have listened to Mayday Parade for over 2 years. Everyone should listen to them. Great band.

    #31 cool so glad I was getting choked up there for a while.

  • stay awake while i cry

    I LOOOVE MAYDAY PARADE
    i met them at Warped last year
    They are amazing guys

    as for this cell phone rule..
    im anti the rule
    yes SOME people cant drive and use their cells
    but seriously, some of us can.
    my friends and i drive and text all the time :S
    but i guess Im for the rule
    expect I dont liek that I cant even change the song on my iPod when I am driving anymore.. thats extremee

  • alyson

    #16, you are so unbelievably ignorant.
    I cannot believe you actually submitted such a stupid comment. My aunt died in a car crash because the driver was, as you call it, “multitasking”. He wasn’t very good at it.
    I’m glad Selena is promoting this cause. Because, unfortunately, there are “dumb” people out there who can’t multitask while driving. And it can affect the lives of families.

  • ariana

    in california where i live it is againt the law to drive and use the cell phone now

  • Lucky

    There were 5 girls in a car outside of Rochester NY. The Driver was texting a freind. There was a truck in the other lane. The 5 girls did not survive. They were Cheerleaders,They were freinds, and they were family. The community suffered a horrible loss. This is a very good cause.

  • aubrey

    i like how she doesnt use the media to promote herself and only use the media for good lovely girl love her and wish the best for her i luv u sel
