Zeddlena Is The Most Absurd Celebrity Nickname Ever

And yet, Selena Gomez and Zedd are probably a real-life adorable thing.

Look, I don’t generally come here to give a grammar lesson, but let me explain something. There’s something called a portmanteau, which is what it’s called when you squish two words or names together to make a new word - but you can still tell what the original words were.

Zeddlena is not a very successful celeb nickname, by this standard. But, apparently they’re dating for real-real now, because they had dinner together in ATLANTA. And who flies to Atlanta to see a ‘friend’ or ‘music collaborator’ just for dinner?

Nobody, that’s who.

Selena is down there shooting a movie with Paul Rudd, and TMZ have captured hit-maker Zedd getting snuggly and leaving a restaurant with her. Totally. Dating. Let’s not forget that FaceTime screen cap Z posted to Instagram:

And we are SO on board! They make an adorable couple. Zedd is a classically trained pianist who decided he wanted to be a DJ, pumping out choons like Clarity and Find You. Selena’s last serious thing was with that Justin Bieber guy.
