It appears that Selena Gomez has nothing but good words for her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber. She recently sat down with the New York Times and talked about Bieber’s comeback and her own process.
On the topic of Bieber, she said, “While people were writing that I was stupid for being in [the relationship], this is what I always saw in him. I’m like, duh!”
She went on to say, “It’s all part of my story. I’m growing and changing. I was in a relationship, and I was being managed by managed by my parents, and I was still under Hollywood and Disney, and I was being held to this expectation of being the good girl.”
She continued, “I knew deep down that this wasn’t what I wanted to do — being exhausted of forcing something that wasn’t right, even in my personal life. I had to have moments where I was crying and I was like, ‘Why am I not in love with what I do?’ I was forced to get very uncomfortable for a while in order to make the decisions I made. I definitely remind myself that I’m in control. I feel like ultimately if I sit down and I think about a decision I need to make, it’s really within myself. I make the decision. Everything goes through me.”
With regard to supporting Bieber now, Gomez said, “I’ll forever support him and love him. We grew up together. I think people want it to be different… I respect him. And I think he respects me, in a healthy manner.”
When asked if she thought she would ever date Bieber again, she said, “I don’t know!”
Justin Bieber opened up about singledom during an interview on Monday with Australian radio hosts Kyle and Jackie O., and he wants y’all to know that he’s a relationship type of a dude and loves relationshippy stuff, like cuddling and cuddling you know, cuddling and stuff.
“I haven’t been in a relationship for a while now,” the 21-year-old said after the hosts asked him who he’d be bringing with him to Australia when he performs there later this month.
When Kyle questioned why a young pop star would want to be seriously involved with anyone anyway, Bieber clarified, “I’m a relationship type of guy. I love to be in love, love cuddling. I love all that stuff.”
He added, “I got my heart broken. I’m just trying to let that heal up.”
That prompted Jackie O. to ask about his ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez. The radio host asked about Gomez’s name being scrawled on a wall in his new “What Do You Mean?” video, and he dismissed it, saying, “I think that might be fake,” before going on to say “it wasn’t me that did that.”
In a world where not even the most long term couples can get it together, I GET why Justin is scared. But also, this sounds like a lot of BS. Justin likes effing around and going on hikes with Kendall Jenner and ain’t no special lady gonna get in his way on THOSE passtimes.
Do you think Justin will be in a relationship soon?
Justin Bieber still likes to keep people on their toes.
On Friday, the What Do You Mean singer surprised midwestern bar patrons when he played the drums at a popular music spot The Venue. The 21-year-old was reportedly in town visiting a friend when he arrived at the Angola, Indiana bar and joined cover band Bonafide on stage. Which was probably very disorienting to those who actually came to see the cover band…
Band member Heidi Herber said that they had no idea Biebz was even in the building when he asked if he could take a turn on the drums to back the band up! She said:
“He came up and asked if he could play them. He just looked like a normal kid in the bar, except for the hat and hoodie. We had no idea [he was going to be there], in fact, he was one of the first people in bar.”
In his music video for What Do You Mean?, Biebsy gets VERY hot and heavy with his rumored GF Xenia DeliBUT some fans out there are starting to question if he’s truly moved on after spotting a subtle graffiti shoutout for Selena during the skate park scene.
If you look REALLY hard at the graffiti behind the halfpipe, you can clearly see “Selena” spray painted on the wall behind the skateboarders. Uh, romantic? OR JUST CONVENIENT AND I AM A SUPERSLEUTH AND KNOW ALL THE CELEB EMOTIONAL CONSPIRACIES OF THE WORLD?!
A fan was nice enough to capture the moment and share it with the world, below. But I still think I am an amazing reporter of truth (pat on back).
Do you think Justin was trying to make a statement in the video?
