Selena Gomez: King For A Day?

Fill in the blank. Last month, Selena Gomez tweeted the following: "_________ is my favorite person in the entire world."

If you guessed Demi Lovato, you guessed wrong. Taylor Swift? Nope. And no, it wasn't Jennifer Stone, either.

Here's a clue, check out the tweet she sent about her new BFF this morning: "Studio for touch-ups. Then seeing my @selenajoey!! Happy Birthday baby girl! I love you!"

Huh? Who is @selenajoey?

Surprise! Selena was talking about her 9-year-old co-star from her upcoming movie Ramona and Beezus, Joey King!

"I met one of my best friends, who is a nine-year-old, on that movie!" Selena gushed to us last month in an exclusive JSYK interview. "And she is incredible, adorable and a sweetheart!"

In fact, Selena became so taken with Joey during filming Ramona and Beezus (Selena plays Beezus, Joey plays Ramona), that the two became more like sisters than friends off the set. Which is perfectly fine for Selena, who doesn't have a real-life sister of her own. Joey, on the other hand, has two: actresses Haley King and Kelli King, both of whom now call themselves close friends of Selena's, too.

Hmmm....that got us wondering if Selena might ever want to be, maybe, a King sister for a day? "Are you kidding me?" Selena said. "Duh!! I'm like best friends with all of them!"

But it will always be Joey who wins the title of Selena's fave King. When they first met, Selena was quick to tweet: "I'm spending every day with this little girl who makes me smile, Joey King." Selena also felt compelled to tweet lots of "Joey Moments" during their 8 weeks of filming. "Joey Moments" were the funny things the sassy, young star said and did that totally cracked Selena up. Like: (May 1st) Joey Moment: "Oh Joey you smell lovely what are you wearing?" "Oh thank you I'm wearing Febreze from my bathroom."
