She's All Growns Up and She's All Growns Up: Watch Selena Gomez's New Music Video, "A Year Without Rain." (She's 18, Swear.)


Grand Prairie's Own Selena Gomez has a new album called A Year Without Rain due out later this month, and, late last week, she debuted the new music video for that album's lead single and title track. And, in case there was any doubt as to whether Disney was gonna change up its marketing of is one-time tween star now that she's a full-blown woman at all of 18 years old, well, that whole dancing lustfully in the rain bit kinda settles that, no?

No? Are we just projecting?

Whatever. If nothing else, we feel significantly less creepy watching her now that her 18th birthday back on July 22 is in our rear view mirror, that's for sure. Same with her fellow Disney whiz kid and BFF, Colleyville's Demi Lovato, who turned 18 back on August 20.

But, let's be honest, we still feel pretty creepy.
