Va Va Voom.

Selena Gomez has certainly shed off the label of being a teen queen, and much of her clothes, in the July issue of Elle magazine.

The former Disney channel star certainly isn't reluctant to show off what she's got in the photo spread. The pictures includes Gomez donning a metal chain dress with a deep V-cut as well as one with a strapless Vera Wang bra.

In the interview, the actress/singer talks about her boyfriend Justin Bieber. She mentions that the Canadian pop star is "really is a hopeless romantic." 

Gomez also discusses her impoverished upbringing. She says, "I can remember about seven times when our car got stuck on the highway because we'd run out of gas money."

We're pretty certain that Gomez won't have to worry about that problem for the rest of her life.

Here are some more of the photos...
