Selena Gomez: I Need to Learn My Language

Selena Gomez is half-Italian and half-Mexican, but she says her Spanish could use some work! The Wizards of Waverly Place star often shows up to Latin awards shows, but she says they make her nervous because she isn't confident in her language skills.

"I practice [Spanish], but I can understand it better than I can speak it, says Selena. So in a lot of my interviews that I did recently, they would speak to me in Spanish and I would answer back in English. They were like, 'You pick it up so easily,' but I don't want to say it in Spanish because I'd be embarrassed if I mess something up."

We think it's great that Selena wants to stick to her roots!
