Adam Irigoyen: The Male Version of Selena Gomez?

Adam Irigoyen: The Male Version of Selena Gomez?

Adam Irigoyen walks and talks with Davis Cleveland as they head into Fred Segal for an event in Los Angeles on Friday afternoon (April 22).

The 13-year-old Shake It Up star opened up to Latina mag about diversity at Disney, laying down his own tracks and dancing with Roshon Fegan. Check it:

On looking up to Selena Gomez: “I definitely want to do what Selena did – just the boy version. I want to sing in Spanish. When I started realizing that I wanted to sing, at that time Selena didn’t sing. So I was like, ‘You know, I can be the first person on Disney Channel to actually sing in Spanish’. And then Selena came out. Well now I’ll still be the first boy! That would be great. And then maybe later on down the line Selena and I can do a song together in Spanish. I mean, who knows? That kind of idea is what I’m going for.”

On the diversity: “Yeah, I think that’s great. Recently, I don’t think that there’s been a boy that has been Latino and has been able to speak Spanish. But there have been a lot of girls. I feel like it’s great for me to be one of the only {boys}. I’m not the only boy that they’ve ever had that’s been Latino, but I’m one of a handful of people that has been able to represent the Latino market and been able to travel. Disney sent me out to Argentina to do a Disney show over there and I did it all in Spanish and it was great. It’s going to be shown in all Latin America. I felt honored to have the opportunity to be a part of that.”

On tango-ing with Roshon: “I meet my girlfriend’s mother. It’s funny because the episode where I meet my girlfriend’s mom, I try to impress her, so I go to Ty because my character is very insecure when it comes to dancing and he doesn’t think he can dance. So I go to Roshon for advice and we end up dancing the tango together – Roshon and I. We do this whole tango number and I also do it with my girlfriend’s mother to try to impress her, so it’s really funny. I can dance in real life.”

    Who really cares because he’s obviously not trying to offend you/Demi *RME* I actually wouldn’t know about that since I’m no fan of hers. It would be cool to hear Selena sing in Spanish w/ this boy. I’m going to miss WOWP =’( Well that is the only Disney show I watch so I guess that’s the end of the show & me watching Disney.
