Justin Bieber Loves Selena Gomez, Selena Gomez Is Like “Whatever”

From Radar:

Selena Gomez is dating Justin Bieber, but a source close to the couple claims it’s become more of a business deal than a romance and exclusively that the Disney star is just sticking it out with Justin because he’s “good for her brand.”

“Selena and Justin’s relationship isn’t the fairytale romance they’d like their fans to believe it is,” a pal close to the couple told

“Justin’s heart is with Selena because she’s his first true love, but Selena is pretty much just riding out the relationship because she knows he’s good for her image.”

And it’s not just Selena who recognizes what dating Justin is doing for her — her entire team is pushing her to stay with him because of the opportunities it’s given her career.

“Dating Justin is good for Selena’s brand. Together they’re a brand!” the source explained. “Everyone in Selena’s camp is aware of Justin’s star power and is urging her to make it work with him.”

As exclusively reported on Wednesday, the young couple has been on the rocks recently and “almost break up regularly.”

“Let’s just say that if for some reason Justin’s star ever fell, Selena would drop him immediately,” the source said.

Ok, so, mixed feelings. On one hand, Justin Bieber is an annoying little douchebag, and we’ve heard countless rumors about how poorly he treats Selena. So if she’s just using him for her own gain, then good on her, right? But on the other hand, no, that’s not right. Because this makes it sounds like Justin Bieber is a total jackass, but he’s a total jackass because he’s an 18-year-old boy who doesn’t know any better, and that he’s a jackass who really loves his girlfriend. And if Selena is just using him for her own gain, then that’s actually kind of sad.

I don’t know, I have a lot of feelings. What do you guys think?

  • WTF are all those red marks on her chest and arm? I don’t “get” her – her face is like a baby’s.

  • Wow….I just noticed the red marks, too. Really, WTF? Nobody gets a hicky on their arms, do they? Was her arm and boob caught in a vise? Weird. — On the who’s using who thing, I can’t understand that. I can’t see sticking with some little boy just for business if he really is treating her like crap. I guess if they are both getting what they need with this relationship, who are we to judge? Oh wait. That’s what we do…judge. I think it’s effed up. She could find a hotter piece than that CHILD and maybe one who could also be good for her “brand.” (Maybe a dude who could give her a little sumthin’ sumthin’ since I don’t see Justin being all that where it counts for a woman.)
