Gomez in an 'awkward' transition

Selena Gomez warned her young fans not to see her new movie Spring Breakers

Selena Gomez has admitted she felt "a little awkward" starring in R-rated indie film Spring Breakers.

The 20-year-old former Disney star plays a college girl going wild on holiday with her friends, in a world full of sex, drugs and violence.

Selena said: "I am getting a little bit older, so I wanted to push myself and kind of get into a little bit more of an indie world. And it was a really great experience for me. And at the same time it has been, of course, a little awkward, but great.

She added: "Honestly, it's been a weird transition. You never really know what's right or wrong and you can only do the best you can," she said.

Directed by art-house favourite Harmony Korine and also starring James Franco and Vanessa Hudgens, Spring Breakers follows four young women on a Florida coast vacation romp they financed with a diner robbery.

Some of Selena's young fans were gathered outside the ArcLight Theatre at the film's Hollywood premiere, hoping to catch a glimpse of the star. But she warned them not to go inside.

"I think they're really here to see me. I don't think they're here to see the movie," she said. "This was a little bit different. So yes, they shouldn't go see this."

Although you have no interest in pitting your talent against theirs, this other person thinks very differently. Ignoring them won't be possible. A good way to disarm this pest is to invite them out for coffee. Describe what you've observed and ask for a truce. Irrational people are often thrown off balance when their behaviour is addressed in a direct manner.More
