Selena Gomez’s latest tattoo is an ode to the nickname her bandmates call her: “Sel”

The singer revealed the temporary henna tattoo during a video interview with an Oregon radio station. Located on her right shoulder, the tattoo says “Sel” in cursive handwriting, surrounded by a series of stars. Adorable!

“I got a Henna tattoo,” Selena explains. “I got a cool one. It says my nickname. Everybody on the tour calls me ‘Sel.'”

Selena also recalled meeting actor Shia LaBeouf in June in a TV studio green room. Her staff told her a fan wanted to meet her, but didn’t divulge that it was indeed Shia! “I feel I made a fool of myself,” Selena says laughing. “It was a big deal for me. I didnt want to meet him because I said I’d make a fool of myself, and I said one day I hoped to work with him, and I don’t want him to be like I’m not going to work with her.”

But Selena subsequently met a celebrity who trumped Shia!  Says Selena: “The on who tops her is Britney Spears, I interviewed her at the VMAs.”

We love it that Selena, a star herself, gets just as starstruck as the rest of us!
