Selena Gomez’s Dad Used Her as a ‘Wingman’ at Hooters

You should be familiar with the concept of a “wingman.” Dudes hit bars to troll for chicks together, since there is safety in numbers. Selena Gomez has been a wingman, albeit not in the traditional sense.

When she was just 7, her father would take her to Hooters to watch basketball games and having a cute little girl with him attracted attention from the hot, orange shorts and tube socks-wearing waitresses!

Jeez, Sel was no different than the puppies that dudes take to parks so that girls will notice them and therefore collect phone numbers.

In her Harper’s Bazaar cover, where she’s all grown up and strutting around in priceless couture, the Texas-born signer/actress said, “When I was 7, my dad would go to Hooters to watch [San Antonio] Spurs games. But he started noticing that when I would come, with my little pigtails, all the waitresses would be like, ‘Hey!’ So he ended up half spending time with me but with all those cute girls coming over.”

She was a pawn in her dad’s dating game! Wink wink, nudge nudge.

Sel isn’t scarred by the experience of frequenting Hooters when she was single digits in age, nor is she anti-Hooters because of it. She even did her interview while at Hooters and even noshed on a deep-fried pickle. Mmmmmmm!
