Los Angeles: Singer Selena Gomez has decided to take a break from her music career as she wants to concentrate on acting.

The 19-year-old, who recently finished filming "Spring Breakers", has got another movie, "The Getaway".

"I`m just kind of halting music for a bit. I`ve been really focused on more acting," quoted Gomez as saying.

"For me, it`s been fun to take risks and do things that are completely different. To be honest, maybe some of you guys might not be comfortable with it. I`m still the same person. Things that challenge me really excite me," she added.
