Playing Selena Gomez Can't Pronounce Zedd's Real Name

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. And make sure you post your hilarious attempts on Instagram!

This is exactly what Selena Gomez did when she couldn't quite figure out how to pronounce her rumored boyfriend's difficult name.

Gomez has reportedly been dating German-Russian music producer DJ Zedd, whose real name is Anton Zaslavski – and it was apparently that "v" in the middle that was throwing her off.

Selena, along with her friend Tracy Mingus, taped themselves repeatedly and embarrassingly mispronouncing his name, and then arguing about all the superfluous letters. The end result is an amazing Instagram video.

The 22-year-old "Come & Get It" singer and the 25-year-old DJ were first linked in January after hanging out at a Golden Globes afterparty. They continued to fuel speculation after posting a number of seemingly romantic pics to Instagram in the following weeks.

While it's a little sad that Selena can't pronounce her man's name, she shouldn't feel alone. Miley Cyrus, who is dating Patrick Schwarzenegger, recently admitted to Good Morning America that she can't spell her boyfriend's last name.

While Selena has been widely linked to Zedd, that didn't stop Vine star Cole LaBrant from asking Selena to prom. Check out the video below to see more.
