ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Selena Gomez is one of the busiest young performers working in the music industry today, with a new number 1 album and an upcoming tour that is keeping her in rehearsals for hours a day. "Stars Dance" is Gomez's first solo album, having recorded her first of three albums, "Kiss & Tell" when she was 15, under the band name Selena Gomez & the Scene. Her sound has grown up over the years along with her teeny bop audience, and features disco-style melodies and 90s beats, reminiscent of the music she listened to in her youth. "I grew up with Britney, Christina, Janet, and it's all kind of about entertaining and full on choreographed numbers, having that little 90s feel to it is something I wanted to do for this record, so I feel like all of the stuff that's kind of happened to this point, I've just wanted to make really great pop music," says Gomez. And it looks it's working out for Gomez. Backed by the album's hit single "Come & Get It," "Stars Dance" sold 97,000 last week, topping the Billboard 200, according to figures compiled by Nielsen SoundScan. Although she was edged out by Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" after just one week at number one, she isn't going anywhere. Her "Stars Dance" tour will have her busy through 2013 with nearly 60 show dates in North America and Europe. For Gomez, who has had a highly publicized on-off relationship with teen superstar Justin Bieber, finding time for her personal life these days is not something on her agenda. When asked if she is seeing anyone special these days, she replied with a laugh, "God no." The "Stars Dance" tour kicks off August 14 in Vancouver, Canada.
