Selena Gomez loves herself some spicy food, but not even her palate could handle the heat of the Hot Ones wing challenge!
The actress stopped by The Tonight Show on Tuesday night to promote her upcoming horror-comedy flick, The Dead Don’t Die. Sadly, the starlet almost had a near-death experience herself in one segment that featured her eating spicy AF wings with Jimmy Fallon.
The two put their taste buds to the test as Jimmy enlisted Hot Ones host Sean Evans to give them the treatment of his hit YouTube series, which shows him interviewing celebs as they chow down on hot wings. It’s a cruel, sadistic series that has grown in popularity over the past few years. Gomez had never heard about it, so she didn’t know what type of fresh hell she was in for.
Interestingly enough, the 26-year-old didn’t seem bothered by the first few rounds of sauces. She remained stoically poised while Jimmy immediately felt the heat and was reduced to barking like a dog.
But each round got progressively hotter over the course of the interview — and, eventually, Selena felt the heat, too.
It all went downhill after the pair sampled the sauce aptly called “Da Bomb,” which made the singer tear up as she exclaimed things like:
“This is horrible!”
“Why do you do this to people!?”
“I hate it!”
Thankfully, with some encouragement from the audience (and the help of a milk fountain), the duo were able to complete the challenge. Watch them squirm (below)!
During cooler segments of her appearance, Selena sat down with Jimmy to discuss her new film, and reveal what Bill Murray kept whispering in her ear when they promoted it at the Cannes Film Festival last month.
The Bad Liar artist also teased her upcoming album, which she confirmed was “finished”!

It’s great to see Selly back in the spotlight since public appearances from her are rare these days.
As fans know, the former Disney star seemingly disappeared from the world for months as she took a much needed break from social media. The actress addressed this hiatus at Cannes a few weeks ago, speaking on the “dangers” of constant Twitter and Instagram use. She said during a press conference:
“I think it’s pretty impossible to make safe at this point. I’m grateful I have the platform. I don’t do a lot of pointless pictures. For me, I like to be intentional with it. It just scares me. I’ll see these young girls at meet and greets. They are devastated, dealing with bullying and not being able to have their own voice. It can be great in moments. I would be careful and allow yourself some time limits of when you should use it.”
Using social media is kind of like eating hot wings… don’t overdo it, or you’ll end up in tears!
