Oh hey, it's true! Selena Gomez didn't shy away from talking about Zedd during an interview with New Zealand's radio show The Edge Afternoons on Tuesday, June 30. In fact, the "Good for You" singer confirmed that she dated the DJ earlier this year.

Gomez, 22, came clean about their fling when asked about Diplo's accusation that her relationship with Zedd, 25, was just a publicity stunt. 

"He said that was a joke!" she explained. "He said that was a joke 'cause I talked to him."

She added: "First off, It’s very interesting that Diplo would think he knew about my personal life, but he doesn’t. I adore Zedd a lot and I definitely had a thing with him, which was nice."

The former child star and Zedd first sparked romance rumors back in January. They posted photos from their FaceTime chitchats while in bed, held hands at the 2015 Golden Globes on Jan. 11, and collaborated on the song "I Want You to Know." Gomez even called him the "Harry to My Sally" and gushed about his "beautiful eyes" to Radio Disney's The Alli Simpson Show.

During The Edge Afternoons, Gomez also played a round of "True or False," but only if "he who shall not be named" wasn't brought up. (Ahem, ex Justin Bieber!) One particularly interesting question? Whether Gomez called Katy Perry to apologize after filming Taylor Swift's star-studded music video for "Bad Blood." The song, as Us Weekly previously confirmed, is about Swift and Perry's longtime feud. 

"That's false. I love Katy," Gomez said. "I just talked to her, but I didn't talk about that."

Gomez’s latest single, “Good For You” featuring A$AP Rocky, debuted at No.1 on the Billboard Digital Song Chart, making it the biggest first week of any digital single this year.
