Watch Selena Gomez Respond to a 12-Year-Old’s Pick-Up Line

Cringe-worthy or cute?

Nobody can say that Selena Gomez isn’t a good sport.

The “Hands to Myself” singer and newly crowned Queen of Instagram played along on a British radio show whose host asked her to field fans’ pick-up lines — or chat-up lines, as they say on that side of the pond.

“One thing about you, Selena, is I think it’s safe to say that you’re one of the most sought-after women in the world,” BBC Radio 1 host Cel Spellman said. “So I thought I’d give the Radio 1 listeners a chance to kind of give their best shot at wooing Selena Gomez with all but one line.”

The first caller? Twelve-year-old Max, with this cringe-worthy line: “Is your name Google? Because you’ve got everything I’m searching for.”

See Gomez’s good-natured response to Max and the other callers in the video above.
