Teasing her Dubai fans with an Instagram picture, American singer Selena Gomez showed off a necklace with her name written in Arabic, ahead of her show at Dubai Music Week next week.
Gomez is currently gearing up to visit the UAE as one of the star attractions of the much-publicized event.
The 21 year old joins a list of famous names including will.i.am of The Black Eyed Peas and rapper-producer Timbaland.
“Selena Gomez is a great addition to the line-up for Dubai Music Week. The caliber of artists who are performing in the first Dubai Music Week is a testament to Dubai’s position as the leading entertainment and music hub in the region,” Hamad Bin Mejren, executive director of business tourism at Dubai Tourism and Commerce Marketing said to Gulf News.
The former child Disney Channel star, previously known for being Justin Bieber’s girlfriend, is firmly carving a name in her own right since the release of debut album Stars Dance in July, with sales fuelled with top ten Billboard single “Come and Get It.”
Backed by producer Quincy Jones, the first Dubai Music Week will act as a trade and industry showcase, while hosting major concerts for fans.
