Selena Gomez is thriving in Paris. After wrapping the third season of Only Murders in the Building in New York, Gomez is spending time in the French capital, where she is believed to be filming musical crime comedy Emilia Perez with Karla Sofia Gascón and Zoe Saldaña. Gomez’s cousin and close friend Priscilla Cosme shared a look at their time together there. Both posed joyously in front of the Eiffel Tower. Gomez dressed casually in a white top, black jacket, gray sweatpants, and white sneakers.
On April 20, Gomez revealed on Instagram that she and the Only Murders in the Building cast had finished filming the show’s third season. “Well we wrapped season 3 of @onlymurdershulu -I’m not sure I have enough words to explain just how beautiful this season has been,” she wrote. “It has been deliriously hilarious, challenging and for me, an absolute dream. I’ll post more soon. But I’ll I leave it with the woman I adore, look up to and love. ????”
Gomez opened up to The Hollywood Reporter last June about the struggles she went through moving from childhood acting roles on the Disney Channel to more adult projects. “I felt like it was very difficult for people to take me seriously…” the former Wizards of Waverly Place star said. “I have slowly pushed through that, and I’m really glad, but it was very frustrating. I felt like a joke, you know?”
She also spoke about loving acting and music equally and wanting to have a career in both industries. “I couldn’t do one or the other. I actually love both,” she said, listing off her projects then, which included her Selena + Chef cooking show, recording an album, preparing for the third season of Only Murders in the Building, and more. “My therapist is like, ‘Girl, are you ever gonna find a man?!’ I’m like, ‘I dunno,’” she quipped. “But I do feel like right now, in my life, I am just so open, and I love what I do…I just am in a really good space right now, and I’m enjoying it.”
