Full disclosure: I’m pulling for this spin of the rumor mill to prove true. I’ve interviewed Selena a few times since her Wizards of Waverly Place days, and even back then, it struck me how mature and articulate the starlet came across. Mature and articulate? Not exactly the stuff Justin Bieber’s inhaling these days (pot busts, paparazzi drama, recklessly whipping around Calabasas in his Ferrari, former NFL star Keyshawn Johnson using his Prius to chase down a speeding Biebs… you get the picture).
Now, Ed Sheeran, on the other hand, is on his second serving of humble pie. “I’m chubby, ginger with blue eyes,” the 22-year-old songwriter once described himself. Dating an older guy without an ego? There’s a thought.
In case, Seled (Sheerlena?) fizzles before any real flames ignite, here are a few other options to help Ms. Gomez forget… what’s his name?
Who do you think Selena should date next? Let us know in the comments!
