BURBANK, Calif., June 8 (UPI) -- U.S. actress-singer Selena Gomez, a rising teen star on the Disney Channel, says she is dedicated to not having sex until she is married.
The 15-year-old, who appears on the Disney series "Wizards of Waverly Place," said she plans on abstaining from sex despite the lures present in the entertainment industry, "Extra" reported Friday.
