Selena Gomez Would Be A Chef If She Stopped Singing & Here’s What Her Menu Would Look Like

Apparently, even pop stars like to have a backup plan in case the whole international stardom thing goes kaput. During an interview for the November issue of Flare, Selena Gomez stated that if her fame was suddenly extinguished, she would pursue a career in food. "I would go to culinary school and learn how to be a chef." The "Good For You" singer went on to note that her inspiration for the hypothetical career switch comes from growing up in the South with a family who had a great knack for home-cooked meals. "My mom’s side did the casseroles, the chicken, the squash, and then my dad’s side was full on, like hours of cooking tamales and rice and beans and homemade salsa, and I’d be like, 'Can we just buy the salsa?'"

As much as I enjoy making Gomez's singles a regular fixture on my iTunes, her sentiments have sparked my curiosity. If a Chef Gomez came to be, what kind of meals would she prepare? Either way, I'm pretty sure that I would be ready to come and get it the minute said restaurant opened, because the heart wants what it wants, but — above all else — I would just hope the menu would offer a variety of entrées that are good for you.

Just for fun, let's take a look at some hypothetical — albeit, delicious — meals that Gomez would satiate all of us with if she ever became a chef.

1. The Artichoke Heart Wants What It Wants

I imagine that this dish would be served with the perfect combination of minced garlic and olive oil. It would best be served in dim lighting and paired with smoldering stares.

2. Trust In Miso Soup

What better way to start a meal than with a broth-based soup that is also trustworthy?

3. Naturally Sweetened Greek Yogurt Parfait

No pre-sweetened yogurt in this dessert, guys! This nutritious and delicious snack would be made with organic fruits, granola, and plain greek yogurt. In other words, it would come naturally.

4. A Year Without Grain

Anyone with an aversion to gluten would rejoice over a mix of lean proteins, fruits, and veggies.

5. Hit The Lightly Breaded Tilapia

Baked, not fried.

6. Bang Bang Bang Shrimp

For those of you that live in area that is peppered with Bonefish Grill restaurants, yes this one is inspired by the infamous Bang Bang Shrimp appetizer.

7. Good For You

It would be a salad...just a salad.

Is your stomach growling? Yeah, mine too. Excuse me while I go nosh on some takeout — my culinary skills still need some sharpening.
