"Everybody thought that it was a heart for some reason, but music is a big influence in my life," she told Access Hollywood on Friday. "I was named after a singer, I'm a singer and a lot of other personal reasons, so that's what I got."
Last week, an employee at the tattoo shop Selena visited sent out a tweet about the tiny tat, which sparked the confusion about it being a heart. "She got a little heart tattoo at Under the Gun, in Hollywood by Louie Gomez," Jordan Sandoval wrote.
As for Selena's Valentine's Day bling from Justin Bieber, the singer/actress insists that it's not a promise ring. "No, no - that's like almost a friendship ring," she said. "It's just for fun."
