Selena Gomez got to smooch a Sprouse brother, but it wasn’t the one she wanted!
The “Look at Her Now” singer opened up about her first kiss during Friday’s episode of “The Kelly Clarkson Show.” She began by sharing how she visited her childhood home, got to go inside and take a look at her old room, where her closets were filled with notes about her crushes.
“I had written in the closets that I was in love with Cole Sprouse,” she shared. “Cole Sprouse was on ‘Suite Life of Zach & Cody.’ I was obsessed with that show and I thought we were going to be together one day.”
“Then I guest starred on the show. But I kissed his brother [Dylan] and I didn’t get to kiss Cole!” Gomez recalled. “It was my first kiss [and] on camera!”
“It was one of the worst days of my life”, she jokingly added.
Prior to getting her own show on the Disney Channel, Gomez had a role in the 2006 “The Suite Life of Zack & Cody” episode titled “A Midsummer’s Nightmare,” where the twins auditioned for a school play to meet girls. Gomez’s character ends up kissing Zack, played by Dylan.
Back in September, the former “Wizards of Waverly Place” star shared video of her childhood closets that showed her love for Cole.
“Apparently my heart was very conflicted between Juan and Cole Sprouse when I was 11,” she captioned the cute video.
On Monday, Dylan took to Twitter to address the dig by sharing a screen shot of a news article, which showed an image of Selena all glammed up with the headline “Kissing Dylan was ‘The worst,” alongside an inset image of Dylan wearing a suit, tie and fedora.
“Yo get that pic of him in the fedora to really sell the message”, Dylan captioned the photo.
Meanwhile, Dylan’s twin brother and “Riverdale” star, Cole Sprouse, also had fun with the story on social media, pointing out that he had never been described as “worst” in the kissing department.
“Can safely say I’ve never had a girl say this about me”, Cole replied to an Instagram post by Teen Vogue about Selena’s interview.
As for what made her kiss with Dylan so awkward, Gomez told Tiger Beat in 2009 that she messed up the timing, before adding that he was still an “awesome guy.”
“I actually leaned in to kiss him, and I had my eyes closed a little too early and I ended up missing like half of his lip,” she said. “So it ended up being the most awkward kiss in the world. But I was 12 so it was OK and it was good. And thank goodness he’s such an awesome guy.”
