Playing Selena Gomez Fuels Niall Horan Dating Rumors by Supporting One Direction Over Justin Bieber

Selena Gomez is team One Direction!

Despite the massive praise she's given to her on-again, off-again boyfriend Justin Bieber's comeback album, Purpose, the "Good For You" singer is apparently an even bigger fan of 1D's Made in the A.M.

Instagram user @disneylandgomez posed the question that Beliebers and Directioners have been trying to settle for months: Who has the better album?

"My friend likes jb and 1d but idk which one to get him? Purpose or Made in the AM?" the user asked, with a photo of the two albums side by side.

The best comment of all was from Gomez herself, who simply wrote, "Made In the AM."


Competition over the two highly anticipated albums heated up when Bieber, 21, seemingly threw shade at 1D over Snapchat once he heard the band was dropping Made In the A.M. on Nov. 13 -- the same day as Purpose.

While fans are still taking to social media to express their opinions on the debate, the numbers prove, however, that Bieber is the true winner. Purpose sold 649,000 album equivalents in its first week out, while One Direction came in at No. 2 with 459,000 units of Made in the A.M. sold the first week.

Music isn't the only competition between the musicians, as both Bieber and Niall Horan have recently been linked to 23-year-old Gomez.

Horan was spotted cheering on Gomez backstage at KIIS-FM's iHeartRadio Jingle Ball in Los Angeles last week, the same night a source confirmed to ET that the 22-year-old Irish singer and former Disney star were locking lips and being "flirty" at Jenna Dewan-Tatum's 35th birthday celebration.

Just hours after that news broke, Bieber uploaded a throwback photo of he and Selena from 2012, a follow-up to another vintage photo of the two on a four-wheeler he posted four days prior. Bieber and Gomez first sparked rumors that 'Jelena' could be back on late last month, when Bieber serenaded his ex at a hotel bar in Beverly Hills, California.

Looks like Bieber may be over the drama with his longtime love for good, however, as he made it clear he already has his eyes set on another girl -- a "mystery" Instagram muse who was identified as Cindy Kimberly after the "Sorry" singer asked his 47.3 million followers if they knew who she was on Monday.
