Google “Selena Gomez fansite” and you’ll find over 540,000 results. With her bubbly personality, doe eyes, and twin talent for acting and singing, it’s hardly surprising that Selena Gomez is the subject of many adoring fansites. But which – if any – of these sites are official?
As it stands, there is no official Selena Gomez fansite that is separate from the young star’s main website, selenagomez.com. There is, however, an official Selena Gomez fan club endorsed by Selena herself. If you consider yourself to be a Selenator – a nickname the Selena-obsessed are so fond of using that it has its own Urban Dictionary page – you may be interested in getting involved! In an August 2015 news post on selenagomez.com, Selenators were invited to follow the official Selena Gomez fan club on Twitter (handle:@SelenaFanClub). There is also a linked Instagram account named @selenafanclub. Both accounts are updated daily with a mix of original content, retweets and regrams, and notifications of “Sel”-related contests and giveaways. Be sure to look out for the interactive opportunities they provide, like chances to get a follow back or signed poster by simply commenting on an Instagram post!
Click through the different headings of Selena’s official website and you’ll land on the “Community/Fanforums” section, where you can share your thoughts on the lovely star and download graphics for Facebook and Twitter.The forums are organized around prompts like “How has Selena inspired you?” and “What is your favorite Selena lyric?” while the graphics section includes banners and cover photos that are free to download.
Photos, videos, tour dates, and an online merchandise store can all be found on selenagomez.com. But if you’re looking for even more Selena Gomez content, there’s no shortage of it to be found on her unofficial fansites. Many of these sites are so glossy and professional-looking that you’d be surprised to discover they aren’t official. They can be good resources for connecting with other Selenators and accessing hard-to-find or older press and pictures of Selena, who rose to fame in her early teens as a squeaky-clean Disney actress.
So, while there is no official Selena Gomez fansite, there are a number of accounts linked to the official Selena fan club. If you’re looking to stay on top of all things Selena, then following those Twitter and Instagram accounts is a good start. Overall, it seems like Selena has lots of love for her devoted fans – she once said in an interview that “The day I got my first letter from a fan, I felt like I’d been touched by an angel.” How sweet!
