20. BAGGED: LOVE FOUND…THEN LOST
We all know now about the ups and downs of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez’s relationship but not everyone knows how their relationship began. In 2009, Bieber was an up-and-coming young pop singer who had just released his first single “One Time.” Bieber appeared on a radio show to do an interview and he was asked who his celebrity crush was and he blushed and admitted that his crush was Selena Gomez and then jokingly said, “No one heard that. Keep that on the DL!” At the time, Bieber was just 15 and The Wizards of Waverly Place star was 17 and dating Nick Jonas. However, less than two years later, Gomez and Bieber were spotted on vacation together, kissing on a private yacht in St. Lucia right before making their red carpet debut at the Vanity Fair after-party for the 2011 Oscars.
The two have gotten together and broken up more times than we can count but Bieber did manage to woo his crush multiple times. But while Bieber’s first celebrity crush was on his future girlfriend, Gomez had a very different celebrity crush. Gomez recently admitted that she had a crush on Barney! Well, actually she had a crush on the guy in the Barney suit who she worked with when she starred on the show along with Demi Lovato who was also crushing on Barney.
19. REJECTED: FRIEND-ZONED
We all know that Drake has had a crush on Rihanna for years but at least she gave him a chance (two chances actually) but she’s not the only famous woman that Drake has crushed on. For years, Drake has harbored feelings for Nicki Minaj but she apparently put him int he friend zone–at least that’s what he told MTV:
“Me and Nicki have a really playful relationship. When I was on tour … I saw Nicki for the first time and, like, literally fell in love…I remember one of the first nights that we were out in Miami and I went to Jerry’s [Famous Deli]. I was like [to Minaj], ‘You want food, you hungry?,’ and she was like, ‘Yeah, I want some food.’ I was like, ‘I’m in, we gon’ eat food together.’ I came to her door and she took the food and shut the door in my face! I was just like, ‘Man, this is gonna be a long road for us.’ I’ve always really, actually really had a crush on her, always really loved her, and she’s always just looked at me as, like, her little brother.” No guy ever really wants to go through that.”
Drake has definitely made his feelings known in more ways than one–he even admitted it again “Miss Me” with the lyrics: “I love Nicki Minaj/ I told her I’d admit it.” It doesn’t get much clearer than that. Unfortunately for Drake, Minaj is not interested.
