Remember when Niall Horan (the blonde, Irish guy from One Direction) and Selena Gomez were a ~rumored~ couple? And then remember when Selena quickly put those rumors to rest by publicly friendzoning Niall during an interview?

When asked about the rumored relationship by Entertainment Tonight in 2015, Selena shut things down completely. "Oh my god! No," she said, laughing. "I love him, I always have. He's amazing."

Even though Niall and Selena (Nelena? Siall?) were never actually a thing, Niall has admitted to crushing on the "Bad Liar" singer—but way, way back in the day, before their rumored love connection in 2015.

In a new interview with SiriusXM, Niall was asked about his earliest celebrity crushes.

"Selena Gomez or Mary-Kate and Ashley," he answered. "Mary-Kate and Ashley, their show was great...I had all the tapes. They're twins. You know, there's two of them and they're both great looking. And Selena's just really cute."

So, sadly for anyone who ships this pairing (if anyone even does?), Niall and Selena's romance doesn't seem to go any further than a childhood crush.
