It's crazy to think that someone as famous and accomplished as Selena Gomez can get quite flustered when meeting another peer. But, that's exactly what happened when the pint-sized cutie met her celebrity crush, Shia LaBeouf.
The 19-year-old starlet (and Justin Beiber's girlfriend) got a chance to meet the "Transformers" star backstage a few days ago and she couldn't hold back her excitement as she exclaimed her adoration for Shia. She even boasted how cute he was to her mom! The two also share something in common: why, Disney, of course! Most of the tweens today became familiar with Selena from her guest role on "Hannah Montana" and for her very own hit show, "The Wizards of Waverly Place," but it's easy to say that many of the tweens today can't even remember Shia's tenure at the House of Mouse. Shia was one of the stars of the hit show, "Even Stevens," and had a role in 2003's adaptation of "Holes."
Selena's display of admiration for the 25-year-old actor, who suffers from diarrhea-of-the-mouth disease, is nothing new as Selena's BFF, Taylor Swift, and her boyfriend, Justin Bieber, have had their run-ins with their celebrity crushes.
The Bieber, has made no qualms about who his no.1 girl is -- none other than Jay-Z's main lady, Beyonce. He even got a little flustered when he met her at the 2010 Grammys! It made him a little nervous before he went to present an award next to another lovely lady, Ke$ha! Some guys just have all the luck!
Meanwhile, Taylor, who just turned 21 late last year, grew up in the 90s! The era of the boy bands and girl power, so it's no shocker to anyone when she revealed that her number one crush was *NSync cutie, Justin Timberlake! She went into fan-girl mode when she finally properly met the 30-year-old crooner on "Ellen" in 2008.
The chances of Bieber ever getting with the Beyonce are slim to none, but there's still some hope for Taylor or Selena (hey, you never know!) to fulfill their heart's desires! The two should take a cue from another teen queen, Miley Cyrus. Back in 2009, the Disney alum and triple threat revealed her celebrity crush out to be Jared Followill (25) of Kings of Leon and the two were then seen flirting in Madrid, Spain following the 2010 MTV Europe Music Awards.
This generation of teen stars definitely have had their dreams come true: they finally got to meet their celebrity crushes (and then some!). But, what will the future hold when it's their turn to meet their celebrity admirers?
