Is Selena Gomez the new Jamie Lynn Spears? In real life, no. According to Twitter, yes. After she and Justin Bieber were spotted kissing on a Caribbean vacation just before New Year's, a Twitter rumor started that her next role would be as teen mom. They even credited TMZ with the news, even though no such story exists on the site. This is the second time Selena's been subject to an online pregnancy rumor.
