In a recent interview with We Love Pop, which was conducted before Ariana and Nathan made it official, Nathan opened up about his feelings for Justin Bieber's ex-girlfriend.
"To be honest, I always liked Selena, but I really did not want to go that side because Justin would kill me!"
"I would probably receive a call from [our manager] Scooter telling me to stay away! But she is splendid. She is perfect."
Hmm, does that mean Scooter isn't a Sel fan?! Or maybe he's talking about the press it would get...?
Nathan also talked about a time he totally lost his cool when he saw Selena with the Biebs at a Justin Timberlake concert.
"I must have looked like a complete idiot...My friends were like, 'Just say hi,' but I could not even talk to her! . . . But that's how I am, I'm very, very nervous around girls that I really like. I need to improve my game. To be honest, I'm garbage anyway, I would be a terrible boyfriend," he admitted.
We're sure Ariana doesn't think that way! The two singers made it official by announcing they were dating just days ago on Twitter.
Are you surprised Nathan was once feeling Sel? We kind of think Selena and Ariana do resemble each other!
