Los Angeles - Selena Gomez will quit singing to focus on acting.

The 20-year-old singer plans to take an extended break from music after her "Stars Dance" world tour this summer in order to concentrate on her film career, which took off last year thanks to her role in Spring Breakers.

Asked whether she had plans to stop singing, she said; "Yeah, probably for a while, I wanna get more into film. I'm open to trying new things.

"I just did an action movie and a dark comedy and then a drama so I've been able to do really fun projects that are different."

Super secretive tour

The brunette star also teased some details of her super secretive tour, revealing her biggest priority is to get into shape in order to keep up with the energetic dance routines she has planned.

"This is my first world tour so I definitely need to get in shape, that's the first thing I need to do. But it's always been my dream to tour the world and actually give myself to my fans the show they deserve.

"There's no planned [guests] right now. Just for this tour overall I'm doing a lot more dancing which I didn't really do on my last tour, the costumes are going to be a lot more detailed. Basically I'm going to be performing the whole new record," she explained in a live video hangout with French radio station NRJ.

Selena also admitted she hasn't yet chosen a support act for the European leg of her tour, and is open to suggestion for talented singers or bands.

"I have Emblem 3 who are from the X Factor in America, in Europe we actually haven't picked an opener yet so am open to suggestion," she said.
