(Newser) – With tween queen Miley Cyrus' squeaky-clean image taking a drubbing, E! Online reports that Disney execs may be shopping for a new fresh face--and may have found one in lesser-known and untainted Selena Gomez. “Selena sings and acts…She is going to be the next Miley Cyrus,” an insider said.

The 15-year-old currently stars in Disney’s “Wizard of Waverly Place,” has a Warner Bros. flick called Another Cinderella Story out this fall and coincidentally played one of Cyrus’ pop star rivals on “Hannah Montana.” Though Disney reps deny Cyrus is being pushed aside, Selena “deserves all the success that’s coming her way,” a rep said.
