Selena Gomez was the envy of many tweens when she locked lips with Dylan Sprouse on The Suite Life of Zack and Cody. However, she wasn’t thrilled about their scripted smooch. On Friday, Selena appeared on The Kelly Clarkson Show to promote her new album, Rare, and she spilled the tea about her terrible experience kissing Dylan.
Selena brought the kiss up while talking about a recent trip back to her childhood home, where she had written all over her closet walls. She revealed that some of her scribbles were professions of love for Cole Sprouse. Kelly confessed that she was clueless about who Cole is, but she had heard of his popular Disney Channel series, The Suite Life of Zack and Cody.
“I was obsessed with that show, and I thought that we were going to be together one day,” Selena said.
The former Wizards of Waverly Place star got the opportunity to meet her crush in person when she guest-starred on The Suite Life, and her role even called for her to kiss one of the Sprouse twins. Her character, Gwen, was tangled up in a love triangle with both boys. However, she ultimately ended up falling for Dylan’s character, Zack, after kissing him during their school’s production of the Shakespearean play, AMidsummer Night’s Dream.
“Then I guest-starred on the show, but I kissed his brother, and I didn’t get to kiss Cole,” Selena said.
This brief smooch was actually Selena’s first kiss, and Kelly expressed her shock that it was with “a stranger.”
“It was one of the worst days of my life!” Selena said.
