Selena Gomez Sides With Pal Taylor Lautner, Joins Team Jacob

Singer/actress says her friendship with the 'Twilight' star helped her get into the series.

While [artist id="3079282"]Selena Gomez[/artist] never admitted to dating [movie id="414921"]“Twilight”[/movie] star [artist id="373803"]Taylor Lautner[/artist], the two definitely don’t seem to be together any longer. But just because the heartthrob is out of her life, that doesn’t mean he’s out of her heart. When MTV News posed the classic Twilighter conundrum — Team Edward or Team Jacob? — to Gomez, she went with her pal.

“This question is so hard. I don’t know, I like them both,” she told MTV News. “I have to chose one of them? I don’t know, I guess Team Jacob, ’cause I want to be a good friend.”

She admitted that she came to the saga a little late. It wasn’t until she started hanging out with Lautner that she watched the flick to see what all the fuss was about. And now, she can’t get enough of it and can’t wait for “New Moon” to hit theaters in November.

“To be honest, I really wasn’t [into the 'Twilight' franchise],” she told MTV News. “I never read the books, I never saw the movie. And then, I got the wonderful opportunity of meeting Taylor, and we became friends, and I watched it ’cause I love to support my friends, and I ended up loving it.”

Selena isn’t the only member of her family who’s hooked on the series. “Me and my mom were like, ‘OK, this movie is pretty awesome,’ ” she said. “We’re going to the ['New Moon'] premiere.”
