Over the weekend, photos showed Selena Gomez walking the red carpet at the KIIS FM Jingle Ball in L.A. and—naturally—the Internet started freaking out because the pop star had a handler hold what appeared to be a cheeseburger while she preened for the cameras. Well, Internet, you clearly didn’t do your fast-food fact-checking, because that wasn’t a burger; it was a sandwich from Chick-fil-A.

A source nobly cleared up any misconceptions about the edible accessory, telling Us Weekly that Gomez was chowing down on snacks from the fast-food chain with the One Direction dudes (including reported fling Niall Horan. See, gals? It is cool to eat around the guy you like!) backstage before the show.

The 23-year-old was photographed walking the carpet in a slinky black dress, and she presumably took bites of her sandwich in between shots. Hey, even a star has to have dinner.
