However, Selena recently dropped the name of her very first crush — way back from when she starred in Barney & Friends with Demi Lovato.

Her crush? Barney. Yes, the purple dinosaur. In an interview with BBC Radio 1, Selena revealed that as a child she had a crush on the actor inside the Barney costume. She portrayed Gianna in seasons 7-8 of Barney & Friends, an American children’s television series.

Selena was recently spotted on her last day of promotions in Paris, sans Justin Bieber and her purple dinosaur love interest.

The 23-year-old walked around Paris in a whimsical white dress by Elie Saab paired with gold Charlotte Olympia heels. Selena nailed her Parisian look with a bold, red lip.

Don’t miss the below video of an adorable 11-year-old Selena Gomez singing a duet with her first crush, Barney, America’s favorite purple dinosaur. The clip aired on the popular kids’ show Barney & Friends back in 2003.

Selena’s heels are most likely custom-made by Charlotte Olympia, so we probably won’t be seeing them on the shelves.
