Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber have been on and off more than… well, things that are on and off a whole lot. Of course, they’re young and overly dramatic and they’re both rich and famous, which only compounds the first two things. Because of this, they can’t really manage to make it work for any real length of time, but that doesn’t mean they don’t like each other and that Selena wouldn’t go there again in future. At least she’s open to it.
“Her new album’s most-talked-about track,” Rapkin writes, “will undoubtedly be ‘Same Old Love,’ in which she announces defiantly: ‘You left in peace, left me in pieces/My body’s had enough/I’m so sick of that same old love.’ While she protests that the song ‘is not necessarily about a specific relationship,’ she says, ‘sometimes you’re stuck in the same cycle. This is kind of my ‘forget it’ song. I’m sick of all of it.’
A recent Snapchat video showed Gomez and Bieber happily sharing dinner with friends. And friends is what they are now, she says, ‘genuinely’—drawing out the word to make sure it sinks in. ‘I’ll forever support him and love him in a way that…. We grew up together. I think people want it to be different.’ Different how, I ask—more drama? She nods. ‘We’re too young for that. Nobody was married. There was no…. I respect him. And I think he respects me, in a healthy manner.’
Gomez is also, yes, dating again. She confirms she had (past tense) a ‘thing’ with Zedd, a 26-year-old, doe-eyed Russian DJ, but adds: ‘Finding somebody is not my main focus. I’ve dated people. I’ve been on a few dates, which is really exciting. But I’ve never wanted to get into anything serious, because I kind of did that. I have my guard up. I like to meet people in organic settings. Hanging out with a group of people and meeting through mutual people.’ Would she and Bieber ever get back together? She laughs and practically shouts: ‘I don’t know!'” ?
That basically means they’ll be back together within a month or two, I imagine. I don’t hate them together, but I also don’t think they’re meant to be for life. They were one another’s first love, and he’s the guy she lost her virginity to, so clearly she’s going to be sprung and unwilling to truly let it go. Justin still seems to show interest in her, as well, so who knows what’s going to happen. Whatever it is, I hope it lasts longer than a week or two.
