Pop star Selena Gomez might be going on permanent hiatus in the near future.

She recently said in an interview that her next album might be her final one.

Entertainment Tonight reports:

The singer and actress discussed the potential for upcoming music releases during an episode of the ‘SmartLess’ podcast.

The heart wants what it wants, and for Selena Gomez, that means narrowing down her wide career portfolio in the new year. 

During a recent appearance on the SmartLess podcast hosted by Jason Bateman, Will Arnett and Sean Hayes, the 31-year-old actress said she is looking to focus mostly on acting, even if that means her music career takes a backseat. 

“I do feel like I have one more album in me but I would probably choose acting,” she told the Arrested Development and Will & Grace stars. 

Currently, Gomez acts and produces the Emmy-nominated Hulu series Only Murders In the Building, stars in Selena + Chef for MAX and Food Network, owns her Rare Beauty makeup line and continues to release singles and work on music in her free time.

For the starlet — who started acting at the age of 10 on Barney & Friends — keeping up with the breakneck pace of her schedule has never been the goal. In fact, she told the podcast hosts that music was more something that she considered a fun side project until it really took off. 

No More Music?

Whether she continues to make music or not, we’re sure she’ll stay busy.

And it’s also never too late for artists, musical or otherwise, to change their mind.
