How does Selena Gomez get her voice in tiptop shape before a concert? She has a warm-up routine – and it’s not a traditional one: She drinks olive oil.
So where did Gomez, 18, learn the trick? From Kelly Clarkson – though the two haven’t actually met in person.
“I read it in an interview,” she says, “so, I just copied her.”
“So, you know it’s true,” DeGeneres responds, joking. “Everything you read in a magazine is true.”
Another thing that’s not true: any talk of a possible romance with fellow teen pop star Justin Bieber, who, at 16, is two years her junior.
“You’re a cute couple,” DeGeneres teases back. “I’m just saying.”
