Like most of us, Selena Gomez finds Bradley Cooper mesmerizing.

Also like most of us, Gomez finds Justin Bieber pretty distressing. Unlike most of us, though, Gomez still shacks up with and uses Bieber for publicity, so whose fault is that?

Gomez sat down with Ryan Seacrest for an E! special airing this Sunday, July 21, just ahead of her 'Stars Dance' album dropping, to talk about Bieber. Because publicity.

When asked about the split and the press surrounding it, she replied, "I'm sure you could actually see those pictures of me being, like, way stressed out about it. And it's hard, because what do you do? Do you just wanna sit in your house and hide and not go anywhere?"

Still, Us Weekly reports the pair aren't officially back together, but are "definitely hooking up." How convenient!

Too bad Cooper is taken, otherwise Gomez could have had a camera-friendly upgrade (her favorite kind). She revealed to PEOPLE that she pretty much froze when she met him.

"I met Bradley Cooper and I don't even remember what I said," she giggled. "That's how embarrassed I was. I wanted to say he was a great actor, but he blinded me with his eyes."

And probably with his potential for magazine cover stories, right? You do you, girl!
