Selena Gomez is not a girl, not yet moved on from being just Justin Bieber’s girlfriend.

But the former Disney star will be a full-fledged movie actress soon, if the upcoming film Spring Breakers goes her way. The movie is about four restaurant-robbing college girls who turn to crime to pay for their — wait for it — spring break. In a just-released clip, you can watch Gomez go dark, talking to Vanessa Hudgens, Rachel Korine, and Ashley Benson about the monotony of their town and  just wanting to feel something.

Spring Breakers, which also stars a cornrow-donning James Franco and is written and directed by Harmony Korine, will premiere at the Venice Film Festival in September.

Check out the clip below:
