Selena Gomez: Cannes Lions 2012 Cutie

Selena Gomez jetted off to France last week for the Cannes Lions 2012 conference, which is part of the 59th International Festival of Creativity.

The Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival is a world’s meeting place for professionals in the communications industry and Selena sat on a panel with Philippe Dauman, MTV President Stephen Friedman and director Jon Chu.

While chatting with Cannes Lions TV, Selena shared some advice for newcomers to the entertainment industry. “Be passionate,” she shared. “Be passionate about what you want and what you want to go for. You’re going to get a lot of people that will tell you differently and tell you a lot of things that will bring you down. I still have people trying to bring me down and you just have to use it as motivation and focus on the positivity and really love it.”
