Selena Gomez was recently spotted with a new tattoo on her right wrist.
While widely reported to be a heart, the 19-year-old star tells Access Hollywood the ink is actually an ode to her love of music.
"It's a music note," Selena told Access Hollywood of her new tattoo at The Fifth Annual Women in Film Pre-Oscar party in Los Angeles on Friday. "Everybody thought that it was a heart for some reason, but music is a big influence in my life.
"I was named after a singer, I'm a singer and a lot of other personal reasons," she explained. "So, that's what I got."
In addition to her tattoo, the "Love You Like A Love Song" singer has been sporting another new adornment on her hand - a diamond-studded ring in the shape of a "J," prompting some to wonder if she and boyfriend Justin Bieber were thinking of making a trip down the aisle.
"No, no -- that's like almost a friendship ring," Selena told Access of the ring's implications. "It's just for fun."
When asked to show off the jewelry, the former Disney darling suddenly came down with a sudden case of stage fright, saying, "No! You'll see it in pictures!"
"I get nervous," she added with a laugh.
