From singing and acting to running her own brand, Selena Gomez can truly do it all, but it seems one of her talents will soon have to take the backseat. The Grammy-nominated singer is considering putting her music career on hold to focus on other creative endeavors.

Gomez dropped some hints about her plans for the future during a recent appearance on the SmartLess podcast with Jason Bateman, Sean Hayes, and Will Arnett. The singer said she probably has one more album left in her, adding that she’d like to choose acting afterward.

Gomez also recalled being asked by Disney to record an album after working on a theme song for her show Wizards of Waverly Place, and added that she never really intended to be a singer full-time.

“I started having a lot of fun with music and then touring was really fun. But I was doing my TV show at the same time, and I just found it really fun so I just kept going but the older I get, the more I’m kind of like, I would like to find something to just settle on,” she explained.

Gomez is currently plotting the release of her fourth studio album, in addition to playing one of the lead roles in Hulu’s Only Murders in the Building and running cosmetics company Rare Beauty and mental health awareness non-profit Rare Impact Fund.
