Oh, baby. It appears Selena Gomez may have officially moved on from Justin Bieber.
The “Come & Get It” singer dished about her love life during an interview with 103.3 AMP Radio’s “The TJ Show” Friday revealing her crush on a fellow musical artist, rapper Drake. While the 21-year-old former Disney channel starlet confessed she isn’t actually dating the “Take Care” performer, she did confess to frequently calling him her “baby.”
According to a report from Us Weekly, the revealing conservation started after a listener called into the Boston-based radio show. “I just wanted to let you know that you're my boyfriend's guilty pleasure,” a listener told the singer, adding, “He sometimes refers to you as his baby. I was wondering if that makes you uncomfortable or are you flattered by that?" The Texas native replied calling the confession “super flattering” and “really sweet,” going on to reveal that she also refers to the 26-year-old rapper with the same moniker. “I’m like, ‘aw [Drake] did that for me’ when it’s like, he did it on Twitter,” said Selena. “I’m like ‘oh, my baby did that for me!”
When radio host TJ Taormina questioned the possibility of the two musical stars hooking up, Gomez replied stating that she doesn’t think she is Drake's (full name: Aubrey Drake Graham) desired type of woman. "No, and I mean this in the nicest way, I just don't have a big enough butt for Drake,” Gomez said.
Drake is the first celebrity Gomez had publicly shared affection for following her split from boyfriend of four years, 19-year-old “Baby” singer Justin Bieber. The twosome called it quits earlier this year following reports of cheating, an alleged pregnancy scare, and a rumored feud between Gomez’s longtime friend, singer Taylor Swift.
Drake confirmed he was single last month during an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” after confessing to the number of famous faces he has dated in years past. “[She’s a] great girl,” he said when discussing his rumored past relationship with Rihanna. “We had our moment. I’ll always support and have love for her…I’m single and I’m ready to mingle,” he said.
