Adorable alert: Selena Gomez is the cover subject of the latest Seventeen magazine.

The cute actress poses for a series of photos inside the special prom issue, while also opening up about a number of issues in her life. What has she learned? What is most important to her?

The following interview excerpts supply a few answers...

On appreciating what she has: I get hurt - everybody does - but I'm more at the point where I'm looking at all the good things in my life. I have a healthy family who's alive that I'm blessed to have, and wonderful friends.

Seventeen Cover

On this year's fashion: My least favorite trend of 2009 would have to be broad-shouldered jackets. I'm probably bitter because I can't pull it off! It did look good on certain people, just not me.

On the World Wide Web: I've given up the Internet. I don't read comments, and I don't go on any of the sites anymore, and I just feel better. And it's not about being a celebrity — you get on MySpace, Facebook, there's all these different outlets where people can just feel like nobody's watching them so they can just say whatever they want to say.

On posing for covers: I never dreamed about being on magazine covers. I always dreamed that I would get to do what I loved - this was just a bonus!

It's hard not to adore Gomez. She's young, talented and seems to have a regular head on her shoulders. We wish her nothing but a lifetime of success.

There's no place for friendship on the red carpet.

Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez may be BFFs, but you'd never know it from the face-off below.

Each young star attended the 2009 American Music Awards. Following the event, most of the talk surrounded Adam Lambert's controversial performance, but some of it was centered on the competition between these singers.

Study their fashion choices below and vote in the proceeding poll...

Selena Gomez is a busy woman.

She sings, she acts, she's an ambassador for UNICEF.

Now, she's also a fashion designer, as Gomez has announced her own clothing line, titled "Dream Out Loud." Said Selena:

"It’s really always been a dream of mine to have a line... With my line, I really want to give the customer options on how they can put their own looks together... I want the pieces that can be easy to dress up or down, and the fabrics being eco-friendly and organic are super important."

Below, a pair of models showcase an example of Selena's vision:

Gomez isn't the only young star to come out with a clothing line. You can compare hers with that of Miley Cyrus right now. Which do you prefer?

Overall, Selena says she's "just looking to send a good message.” The line will officially launch in the fall of 2010.

We had a perfectly nice Friday night at The Hollywood Gossip this week.

Following a few days of hard work, we kicked back and watched the Yankees defeat the Red Sox in a game that featured a mammoth home run by Kate Hudson's boy toy, Alex Rodriguez.

But we wish we'd have been at MILK Studios in Los Angeles instead.

A slew of today's hottest young stars showed up there for the 2009 Teen Vogue Young Hollywood Party. Among them: Taylor Lautner, Selena Gomez, Miranda Cosgrove and Ashley Tisdale.

Take a look at each of these rising celebrities below, highlighted by a large photo of Lautner. Do you really need to ask why?

Miley Cyrus has spent her summer Tweeting and possibly stealing Liam Hemsworth from another woman.

Conversely, fellow Disney star Selena Gomez has been getting so heavily involved in charitable endeavors that she's been appointed the youngest Ambassador ever for UNICEF, a worldwide organization that focuses on underprivileged children.

"Every day 25,000 children die from preventable causes," said Gomez. "I stand with UNICEF in the belief that we can change that number from 25,000 to zero. I know we can achieve this because every moment UNICEF is on the ground providing children with the lifesaving assistance needed to ensure zero becomes a reality."

The Great Selena

The Wizards of Waverly Place star isn't all talk, either:

She's heading off to Ghana this week on her first official field-mission for UNICEF. Said Caryl Stern, CEO of the company:

"We're very pleased to have Selena join the UNICEF family, as a long time supporter, she will continue to capture and engage and audience of millions of young people to help ensure the health, education, equality and protection of every child."

Miley, meanwhile, will continue to Tweet about eating too much ice cream and wanting to be cuddled.

You have to sort of hand it to Miley Cyrus: in the video below, she's directing attention to a cause that isn't 100% about herself. That's a big step for the egomaniacal superstar.

Cyrus has teamed with fellow teen icons the Jonas Brothers, Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato on the song "Send It On."

The single is meant to unite these stars and their fans in calling attention to the environment while also lining the pockets of Disney executives.

As key parts in Disney’s Friends for Change: Project Green - an effort to alert viewers on the best ways to protect the planet - Miley, Nick, Kevin, Joe, Selena and Demi are modeling themselves after the celebrities involved in the 1985 "We are the World" campaign, a song written by Michael Jackson that benefited African famine relief.

Both projects may have good intentions, but both are incredibly high on the unintentional comedy scale. Just try to keep a straight face when the camera zooms in on Nick Jonas below:

Kristen Stewart appeared to have a message on the Teen Choice Awards' red carpet last night: hands off!!!

The Twilight Saga star wore a dress with spikes - yes, actual spikes - as she posed for photographs. Was she sending everyone a message? I'm the property of Robert Pattinson. Stay away!

You can decide for yourself.

You can also compare Stewart's outfit with that of Selena Gomez below.

The young stars actually have more in common than just a legion of fans: Kristen co-stars in the Twlight franchise with Taylor Lautner, while Gomez has been romantically linked to the handsome hunk.

But which looked better at last night's event? You tell us!

Spiky Stewart

Selena Gomez says she's single.

Totally, completely, 100% single.

But, when asked about Taylor Lautner in the latest issue of Seventeen, Gomez also says:

"Taylor has made me so happy. I didn't know I could be that happy. He's a great guy. But I'm 100 percent single, and I'm going keep it that way for a while."

In April, the pair of young stars were both in Vancouver shooting movies. They were spotted together, looking mighty cozy and friendly, on numerous occasions.

Very Hot Stuff

Do you wanna see Taylena become a reality? Write in. Show your support!

Said Gomez of her time with the Twilight Saga hunk:

"I went to Vancouver thinking I was going to focus on my work, but instead I got to meet him, and it ended up being the best thing ever."

Hmmm... are you sure you're single, Selena? And if so, why?!?

You have seen Taylor Lautner shirtless, right? Get on that!

Singer and actress Selena Gomez wants to take on new role: matchmaker!

The 16-year-old starlet is trying to set up her BFF, Taylor Swift.

Her target? Pal and fellow musician Jonathan Cook.

Her plan is already coming together. Gomez already introduced the country crooner and the Forever the Sickest Kids frontman via iChat - and it's working!

Calling Swift his "celebrity crush," Cook gushed: "She is gorgeous... She is an amazing songwriter, and I can relate to her not only as a musician but also as a writer."

"Plus, she seems so down-to-earth, I always root for her as a fan!"

Will Jonathan Cook and Taylor Swift date thanks to Selena Gomez?

We root for her too. Anyone who's seen Swift and T-Pain in their "thug story" video knows she has a sense of humor to match her considerable talent.

Selena Gomez, who is featured on the Forever the Sickest Kids' track "Whoa Oh," doesn't go easy on Jonathan Cook in the romance department.

"Selena suggests girls for me to date," Cook said, adding that as a caveat, "she has told me she has to approve of any girls that I date."

As for any reverse matchmaking opportunities he has planed?

"I've suggested that she date Shia LeBeouf," Cook said.

It's out with the long and in with the short for Selena Gomez.

The young star has finally given fans something to talk about aside from those pesky rumors that she's dating Taylor Lautner.

Over the weekend, The Wizards of Waverly Place actress showed off a new, shorter, bob-like hairstyle at the Time for Heroes Celebrity Carnival in Los Angeles, an event that benefits the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation.
