Zedd and Selena Gomez attend the 2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party hosted by Graydon Carter at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts on February 22, 2015 in Beverly Hills, California.

How did Zedd and Selena Gomez meet? Oh, Zedd just really had to go to the bathroom.

Zedd recounted how the new relationship came to be to radio personality Chris Booker of Los Angeles' 97.1 AMP Radio on Thursday (Feb. 25). "It was about as random as it gets," Zedd explained about the initial meeting with his rumored girlfriend. "I had the day off… and I decided to go buy stuff for my house because I just moved, so I have an empty house, and I had to pee. I had my engineer with me, so I was like, 'I hope they have a bathroom.' He was like, 'Just go to the studio over there,' which was across the street from my studio. He's like, 'They have a bathroom, just go and use that.'"

"So I walk in, and John, the head of our label, who had just signed Selena, was there… He was like, 'Have you ever met Selena?' That was literally the next thing he said… So he introduced me to her, and was like, 'Hey, she's cool, maybe we should make a song together.' And then like a week later, we start working on a song. All because I had to pee."

There's a rom-com beginning we haven't seen yet. Listen to the full interview, where Zedd also discusses his Gomez collaboration "I Want You to Know," below.
