Selena Gomez is ready to wave goodbye to Hollywood.
The singer/actress revealed she eventually wants to get married and become a mom — and she’s prepared to step away from acting to focus on her personal life.
The “Only Murders in the Building” star made the revelation on Friday’s episode of the TaTaTu video podcast “Giving Back Generation.”
“I hope to be married and to be a mom,” the 30-year-old told hosts Raquelle Stevens and Ashley Cook, who also happen to be her longtime friends.
“Eventually, I’m going to be tired of all of this, so I’m probably just going to devote most of my life to philanthropy before I peace out.”

“She puts things in perspective,” Gomez said of her sister. “I have to basically watch this little person grow into a human being. There’s no better feeling in the world. I kind of feel like a parent in a way, even though I’m not.”
“It’s so rewarding to just see that life was so simple at one point,” she added. “I want to enjoy life the way she enjoys life.”

During an appearance in June on The Hollywood Reporter’s podcast “Awards Chatter,” Gomez said her move from Texas to Hollywood made her put having kids on the back burner.
“I would have four kids, for sure,” she said. “Maybe not planned, maybe planned, maybe both. And there’s nothing wrong with the life I would have led.”
“I just know that that’s not my path, and I’m really grateful I had my mom to give me that opportunity to be what I want to be,” she added.
Though she’s currently single, romance might be on the horizon for Gomez after she was spotted getting flirty with Italian movie producer Andrea Iervolino while yachting in Positano, Italy on Wednesday.Filed under selena gomez , 8/6/22

Rushdie, who has been under death threat from Iran since the 1980s, was attacked on stage in New York on Friday just before he was set to deliver a lecture. Reportedly, Rushdie was stabbed. The suspect was taken into custody.
In a statement, the New York State Police said:
On August 12, 2022, at about 11 a.m., a male suspect ran up onto the stage and attacked Rushdie and an interviewer. Rushdie suffered an apparent stab wound to the neck, and was transported by helicopter to an area hospital. His condition is not yet known. The interviewer suffered a minor head injury. A State Trooper assigned to the event immediately took the suspect into custody.
A witness told CNN that there were no metal detectors at the event.
Rushdie spokesperson Andrew Wylie simply told Reuters, “Salman is in surgery.”
Iran issued a fatwa in 1989 in response to Rushdie’s book The Satanic Verses, which was published the year before.
Rushdie, who was born in India, has resided in the United States since 2000.
“Iran has also offered over $3 million in reward for anyone who kills Rushdie,” according to the AP.
