Note to all young stars trying to keep their relationships secret: Don’t try to cover it up when you’re on Ellen DeGeneres’ show, or it’ll come back to bite you, big time.

Selena Gomez learned that the hard way on Monday, when she taped an appearance on Ellen (set to air Tuesday). The last time she was on, Gomez was peppered with questions about her then-still-secret relationship with Justin Bieber, who she said was like her “little brother.” Well, a few months later and one very big public reveal at the Vanity Fair Oscars party later, Selena and Justin are officially a couple, and Ellen’s not too happy about not getting the truth the first time.

“He’s like your little brother? … What do you have to say now? … You were trying to hide it still, right? But now you’ve made it public,” Ellen said as Selena smiled away. “You went to the Vanity Fair [Oscar night] party [together] and made me a fool,” DeGeneres joked.

“No, I really didn’t,” Gomez retorted, but Ellen kept the pressure on, saying: “I know you all were sneaking around but that’s crazy. You’re both huge stars, and you can’t hide from us.”

Still, Selena plead her innocence, saying “I didn’t lie to you. I didn’t, though. I’ll say that.”
