She's certainly loving all the pap attention already!

15-year old Selena Gomez - she'll turn 16 later this month - was out with pals in the BH Friday night looking very, well, mature for her age? Question is, does she have what it takes to be the next Miley Cyrus?

Looks like Selena is going more for acting than singing... of course, all that could change in a month, so who knows!
