You know, "selena gomez gum trick" isn't something I ever expected to type into the YouTube search bar, but hey, here I am. (Life really knows how to throw a curveball, doesn't it?) In a recent interview, London radio station Capital FM presented Selena Gomez with five rapid-fire questions. One of her rapid-fire answers really nabbed my attention. And that answer happened when the "Same Old Love" singer was asked to name her go-to party trick.
“I don’t have a party trick,” Gomez begins. “I did when I was younger. I could spit gum up in the air and catch it in my mouth. I haven’t done that in a while. Maybe I could bring it back.”
Unfortunately, SelGo opted to not demonstrate the move for the Capital FM camera. I've never seen this gum spit trick, I thought. The heart wants what it wants, and my heart wants to see the gum spit trick in action.
Given that it is the year 2015 and you can find just about anything on the Internet, I figured I could probably track down at least one video of Gomez launching a piece of gum into the air only to catch it in her maw. And what do you know? I WAS RIGHT. I typed “selena gomez gum trick” into the YouTube search bar and BAM. The results were poppin’ like a piece of Bubble Yum. Here's a video from 2008:
Here’s a video from 2011:

When you're ready, gum and get it, na na na, na na na.
