Very few can resist the rooty tooty fresh ‘n fruity goodness that is IHOP’s delectable menu of pancake combinations — even two of the world’s biggest teen phenomenons. On Thursday of last week, pop culture as we knew it nearly melted down as a photo of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez leaving an IHOP in Philadelphia surfaced online. TMZ reported the pair had a one-on-one breakfast at the pancake spot and were “cuddly” and holding hands inside.

Gomez quickly put the rumors to rest though when she spoke to Us Magazine at Z100‘s Jingle Ball Friday explaining that Bieber is “one of my best friends…it was just pancakes!”

She also spoke to MTV News on the carpet where she continued to defend the breakfast meet-up asking, “Who doesn’t like pancakes? We were both performing in the same place so we went and had pancakes together. That’s all it is. All innocent.”

102.7 KIIS-FM caught up with Gomez on the 2010 Hollywood Style Awards red carpet Sunday where despite the rampant rumors, she holds nothing against America’s favorite pancake chain, saying “IHOP’s really good!” Check out the video below!
