The star of Disney’s latest hit Wizards of Waverly Place, Selena Gomez, is staying a virgin until marriage, and she’s not afraid to admit it.

The 15-year old actress caught up with Extra on the set of her Seventeen Magazine shoot, where she said that she plans to practice abstinence until she says ‘I do,’ even asking her dad to give her a promise ring as a reminder of her personal vow.

"I said, ‘Dad, I want a promise ring.’ He went to the church and got it blessed. He actually used me as an example for other kids," she says.

Selena, who is being hailed as the new Miley Cyrus, says waiting to have sex is not only a promise to herself, but to those who love her.

"I’m going to keep my promise to myself, to my family, and to God," she says.


For the entire interview with Selena tune in to Extra’s Weekend Edition on Saturday, June 7 and Sunday, June 8.
