Selena Gomez is profitable

Selena Gomez may or may not be being used by her parents. Which is completely okay by me. What else are kids for? Via the San Francisco Chronicle:
Teen singer/actress Selena Gomez used her first wages from "Wizards of Waverly Place" to pay her parents’ rent. The 19 year old’s family moved from her native Texas to Los Angeles to support her blossoming showbiz career, and when she landed her first starring role in the hit children’s TV show, Gomez handed her money to the family to pay its living expenses.

She tells Access Hollywood, "I think (my first paycheck) went into living (in Los Angeles) because we had to move from Texas, so I think we just had to pay for it."
Why is this news? Of course a Disney/Nickelodeon kid was prostituted by his or her parents. Parents strapping a yoke to the backs of child stars is old news. Come on, use that head for a minute. Lynne Spears would still be wrasslin' gators in the Bayou if Britney hadn't hit it big. There's no telling what Dina Lohan would have been up to -- or down on -- if Mean Girls hadn't been the hit that it became. The fact that Selena Gomez has free-loading parents isn't the story here. The story is why she doesn't return my calls? I will not be ignored, Selena. I've sent you everything from flowers to blood-stained underwear, and all I have to show for it are restraining orders in 12 states.
