Selena: Rumors Are 'Like High School Times a Billion'

Selena Gomez tells "Extra" that dealing with tabloid rumors is part of being a celebrity. "It unfortunately comes with the package -- it's kind of like high school times a billion," said Selena.

The Disney sweetheart stepped onto the red carpet for the 2008 Alma Awards last night, where Eva Longoria also battled rumors about a baby bump -- though she told "Extra" she is not pregnant. Still, Eva had butterflies in her belly over her hosting duties! "For me, it's so nerve-wracking to be up there [on stage] and be yourself," she said. "I'm so used to being someone else. Give me some line and I'm fine."

"Extra" also went on "Dancing with the Stars" rumor control -- asking Paula Abdul about reports she's hitting the dance floor! "Not this installment that's happening -- probably the following one," she told us.
