You heard that correctly, folks! The two pop stars were recently spotted together at an artist showcase for a musician by the name of Lewis Capaldi, which is the first sign the two are at least hanging out.
Someone who was at the event tweeted, “The @lewiscapaldi showcase was incredible. This guy’s a f–king star! (Also, unless I’m hallucinating, Selegend & Niall were sitting at the table next to me).” OMG.
Yep! And if that’s not proof enough, the “Slow Hands” crooner confirmed he was at the event in his Instagram Stories, but unfortunately, Selena wasn’t featured in the posts he shared.
While it’s definitely be possible that the woman spotted by that particular Twitter user wasn’t Selena at all, we have several reasons to believe that the woman in question was, in fact, the “Hands to Myself” songstress.
For starters, both Niall and Selena recently attended Courtney Barry’s wedding back in February, who just so happens to be their mutual BFF. Plus, Niall’s already serving up compliments to the former Disney Channel star on Instagram, and we’re kind of swooning over it.
In a recent Instagram Live, the One Direction member opened up to fans about his thoughts on Julia Michaels‘ song “Anxiety,” which features Sel. Of course, he loves it just as much as we do, but he also said, “Selena sounds great on it,” which was just too sweet if you ask us.
Also, this certainly isn’t the first time Niall’s openly expressed his admiration for the 26-year-old star. In a 2017 interview with Billboard, he gushed about how incredible it is that girls have her to look up to.
“Selena is the perfect role model for young girls,” he told the mag. “It takes balls to go in front of the world and share your problems.”
Clearly, he’s had a thing for Selena for a while now, but that doesn’t mean we’re convinced the two are an actual couple. Before we draw any conclusions, we’re going to have to wait for some photo evidence of the pair out on a date. Still, it’s not all that crazy to think that they’ve recently rekindled their friendship and that it can totally develop into something romantic — that is, if it hasn’t already. Well, here’s to hoping!
