Like many Disney Channel stars, we have watched sweet Selena Gomez grow up before our very eyes.

It seems like just yesterday the brunette beauty was casting spells on Wizards of Waverly Place for a much younger audience. And now, like Miss Gomez herself, her fans are quickly becoming young adults who are open to a much more candid, vulnerable side of the pop star.

Yes, her tumultuous relationship with Justin Bieber made headlines (both good and bad) on a daily basis, but all in all the actress turned crooner has stayed true to her good girl image. Until recently…

Nowadays it seems as though the 23-year-old is shying away from that Disney darling persona more than ever (let's not forget about Spring Breakers) and is unapologetically and undeniably stepped into her role as a strong, sexy starlet.

And while many other former child stars—not to mention fellow Disney ladies—have been decidedly more over-the-top with marking their place as an adult in Hollywood, the Hotel Transylvania star has had plenty of success by being more subtle.

We're more than halfway into 2015 but we don't think it is too soon to call this the year of Selena showing off her sexier, more adult side.

From risqué underwear selfies and showing off tons of skin on the red carpet, to getting hot and steamy in her "Good for You" music video, here's why this is Selena's sexiest year yet:

When she rolled around seductively on a couch, took a shower, went without a bra (or pants, for that matter) in her provocative "Good For You" music video.

I love being happy with me yall #theresmoretolove ??

And she certainly said it best when she captioned this Instagram snap, "I love being happy with me yall #theresmoretolove." Amen.

That one time she face-timed with her rumored love interest Zedd...in bed.

Don't forget about that time that she stripped down to some animal print panties and a skintight sports bra for this super-sexy selfie.

We see you, Selena. And both of your pasties

Finally, when she got turned on in the club and seduced Zedd with an intimate, private dance. Need more proof? We didn't think so!
