Would You Drink Olive Oil Like Selena Gomez?

Selena Gomez loves olive oil. She loves it so much, she drinks it straight. When the waiter asks, "What would you like to drink?" Selena Gomez says, "Olive oil, please."

Just kidding.

She does drink olive oil but, as you'd expect, she can't stand it. Gomez admitted the unusual habit on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" on Wednesday when Ellen asked the Disney star how she kept her voice in shape.

She told Ellen, "It's awful. You let it go down and it coats your throat. I gag every time." Sounds lovely. Couldn't she just drink tea and honey instead?

She explained that she plucked the idea from an interview with "American Idol" winner Kelly Clarkson. "I read it in an interview," she told Ellen, "so, I just copied her."

Gomez is better known as an actress, specifically for her lead role in "Wizards of Waverly Place," but she's also the lead singer in the pop group Selena Gomez & the Scene.

    No way!

    Can't she just use honey or something? It still doesn't help with her voice. She sounds like crap live and she uses auto tune..Although she looks the part to be a singer, she doesn't sound like one either

    yup olive oil is really gross it feels weird in your mouth and ur instincts tell u to spit it out but i pushed in down and felt it coat my throat this really does help im only 14 but i am serious about my singing :) i love to sing and will want to for the rest of my life so olive oil helps me restore my voice and throat

    I love this method....obviously not the taste but the results are out standing!! it gives you endurance and it also makes notes easier to hit...I suggest this to only the most serious singers also I don't suggest trying to force the oil down your little kids throat....olive oil is hard to get out of clothes and things :P

    Olive oil is tasty, not to drink from a glass but I dip bread into it all the time, and add on top of pizza, soups to give a kick.

    Sounds pretty disgusting-- but it kinda works! i just tried it a couple of minutes ago because my voice was sounding scratchy and hoarse because i have a cough... I only took one sip, but my voice sounded smoother afterwards!

    I can't sing, and I doubt olive oil is going to help, but, YES, I would drink a shot of GOOD EXTRA VIRGIN olive oil everyday before meals because it helps fill you up, so you eat less, plus the health benefits, skin and hair benefits!! I wish it was a little cheaper, I could definitely down a shot of it a day...
  • mustangluver 2010/09/24 08:46:56

    It will cause some heavy duty diarrhea...LOL...and cause the skin and hair to become very greasy...one should not have more then a tablespoon of oil a day and that is in cooking.

    it does coat the vocal chords. straight olive oil isn't very tasty by itself. and some people don't like ginger tea and honey. i can't stand it. it always made me feel like my throat was covered with sludge when i went to perform.

    Tea is the only thing to drink before a performance...just about anything else will cause phlegm...

    i was always too nervous to drink much of anything before a performance. i still shudder to think about all those competitions i had to go through. forget solos - i could barely make it through madrigals without shaking like a leaf. and i had 4 years of that.

    I will never forget what Johnny Mathis said many moons ago in an interview..he said first he would throw up, then feel dizzy and then shake so much, he wondered if the audience could see his pants shaking..and the interviewer was shocked..someone so famous and with one of the most beautiful voices ever, was that nervous before a performance..Barbara Streisand forgets the words to her own songs..she cannot go on without her monitor...one time the monitor broke and she just walked off stage. Not cool after paying bug bucks for the ticket.

    Selena Gomez just can't sing and no amount of olive oil is going to change that.
