Selena Gomez On Mystery Tattoo: ‘It’s A Biblical Verse’

Selena’s sexy hip tattoo left tongues wagging, but it also left us squinting! The tiny tat was the big mystery on every Selenator’s mind after the singer-actress showed off the ink in Miami Beach last week, since absolutely no one knew what it meant. Could she have been following in ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber‘s footsteps by turning her body into a human canvas?

Not quite. The sexy star told Ryan Seacrest that the hip tattoo is actually a Biblical verse that means a lot to her personally.  The Philippians 4:13 verse is Selena’s favorite Bible passage, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” But that wasn’t the real stunner — Selena revealed that the tattoo is over a year old! “I’ve done a pretty good job of hiding it,” she admitted.

For those keeping track, this is Selena’s third tattoo. The “Come And Get It” singer has ‘LXXVI’ roman numerals on the back of her neck for her mother’s birth year, and a musical note on her right wrist. But her latest reveal has us wondering — does Selena have any more tats we don’t know about?

Selena Gomez: No Groupies On Tour

In other news, a blushing Selena revealed that she’s definitely not taking any groupies home while she enjoys her latest tour. Ryan asked if her sold-out tour has resulted in any after-show encounters, and Selena was quick to shut him down. “What’s the point of being a rockstar then?” Ryan quipped. Get your mind out of the gutter, Seacrest!

Since Selena is a good girl, she told Ryan that she’d much rather have a guy ask her out than invite her home. The classy star told Ryan that if a guy actually had the guts to ask her out, then she’d totally consider hooking up with someone new. For now, the singer has opted to say single as she continues conquering the world on her tour. We’re sure there are already a few guys lined up to ask the Disney cutie out!

Selena put a lot of thought into her tattoo, and we think it looks great. What do YOU think HollywoodLifers? Do you like Selena’s new tat?
