To be perfectly honest, we have no idea how this photo of Selena Gomez and Terry Richardson managed to fly under the online radar for a whole week because seriously, this is pure internet GOLD. Not to mention, kind of unexpected. From Lady Gaga to Rihanna to Jared Leto, the New York photographer’s roster of subjects reads like a who’s who of Hollywood’s A-list, but Selena has remained conspicuously absent from it all…until now, that is. Judging from the chummy Instagram above, the singer and Spring Breakers star stopped by Terry’s studio a week ago for a photoshoot. Matching in plaid shirt (the photog in his trademark lumberjack red and Selena working bright blue), the two look totally friendly and comfortable with each other— so who knows, maybe this was a long time coming? Terry captioned the Instagram with “#terryrichardaon and @selenagomez today!!! After my shoot!!! #LA #selenagomez #C41 #awesome #thebest.” Wow, SOMEONE’s a Selenator….

We’d normally assume that the duo teamed up for a photoshoot on Terry’s blog (like he’s done with Sky, Elle, and countless others). But the photo above, which showcases Selena buzzing off digital technician Rafael Rios’ hair, makes us wonder if the project is even bigger than that. First of all, just LOOK at all the shoes, jewelry and clothing in the background! It seems like a lot of stuff for just a few snaps, right? Also, celebrity manicurist Jenna Hipp also tweeted about the shoot, saying “Had an amazing time with these guys today! @selenagomez #terryrichardson #nailinghollywood #HIPPxRGB”

OK, we’re officially intrigued. What do you think this is all about? A magazine editorial? An ad campaign? Let us know!
