"I'm a woman so I change my mind all the time," she said during a press conference for her latest film Getaway on Aug. 21. "One day I want to do acting and just that, and then other times I just want to do music and just that, so it changes."

She revealed: "But this is my last record for a while. I'm going to tour it and then I'm going to just kind of get into acting for a really long period of time, hopefully."

The "Come & Get It" performer first broke out in Disney's Wizards of Waverly Place from 2007 to 2012 before heading to the big screen in projects like 2010's Ramona and Beezus and Monte Carlo in 2011. She took it a step further in 2012's Spring Breakers, showing a much edgier side to her young fans.

"I've been wanting to do different things starting with Spring Breakers," she explained. "I wanted to do an action movie [like Getaway]." She added: "I got to dye my hair black, it just gave me an opportunity to kind of be someone else."
