There are a few things you should understand about my iPod before this story goes any further. It's old. A 30-gig-er, which they don't even make anymore, making this thing officially an antique. I didn't own a computer when I got the iPod for Christmas a few years ago, so it never had its own iTunes setup. Basically, music got put on it completely at random and there's not a computer copy of my music anywhere in the entire world. Plus, I haven't downloaded or added anything to the collection in at least a year (I listen to the radio or music over the internet, usually). Add the fact that the audio output is messed up and won't play out of one ear (translating into me holding the headphone jack partway in just to hear music in both ears), and this is the saddest retro mp3 story I've ever heard. And this relic belongs to me. I deserve for a true music lover to beat me with a guitar.
So I was riding along looking through the artists on my "sigh"Pod when I came across Selena Gomez. (Don't judge me, okay? A friend put those songs on there.) And I started thinking.
You know how young celebrities who star as lovers always seem to end up falling for each other? It happened with Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgins (those dorks from High School Musical 1 through 1 million or however many they have now).
What about Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson? (I thought I might have heard something about that, so I just now decided to google it to verify, and as I was typing their names in the search bar, the option "Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson dating" came up. And the links look promising. So it has to be official, right? Right.)
Basically, it happens all the time.
But I was wondering: what if someone fell in love with their costar who plays not their lover but their...brother? :gasp!:
Because the one acting gig I know Selena Gomez does is the Disney Channel series Wizards of Waverly Place. And it's not inconceivable that she could fall for the guy that plays her older brother.
Nope. Not completely inconceivable.
I imagined poor Selena collapsing on her bed and crying for hours, snow falling outside her window as she let her tender, aching heart pour out of her eye sockets. (Okay, so maybe Beauty and the Beast influenced my imagination just a little. I can't control these things.) I imagined her scribbling her thoughts about her crush in a journal, unable to let the world ever see her true feelings because if the press ever got hold of this, she'd never hear the end of it. Everyone would think of her as a sick pervert just because they see this David guy as her brother and not a potential boyfriend, and all just because that stupid Disney channel had to cast them that way! Oh, the injustice of it all!
me writhing with the injustice of it all
(perhaps not one of my best moments)
Aren't you glad that we aren't celebrities who have to worry about that kind of thing?
I mean, it could happen.
Blog-reader bonus: The song by Selena Gomez that I know is good!
(I thought the song "Naturally" was kick-butt before I realized that she's the one who sings it. So there.)
P.S. I managed to figure out how to get a video on this post, but not how to write a caption for a photo! Pathetic. Can anyone tell me how to do this? Thanks in advance!
