Justin Bieber Revealed Crush on Selena Gomez in 2009

The first piece of evidence that Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber are a couple leaked online earlier this week—see pictures of their sexy holiday vacation together here— but there were clues that Justin had a crush on the Wizards of Waverly Place star way before then.

Perez Hilton dug up this vintage radio interview that Justin did with New York radio station, Z-100 in 2009, where the Canadian singing sensation pretty much admitted he had the hots for Ms. Gomez. When he was asked who his celebrity crush is, a very shy Justin said, “I think Selena Gomez is pretty, but I don’t like her. I think she’s cute... I think she’s a cutie."

Listen to clip below to hear Justin (sort-of) declare his love for Selena.
