Selena Gomez thinks she’s a big girl now, which means she no longer wants her parents, Mandy and Brian Teefey, as managers. Before you jump to conclusions, they weren’t stealing her money or doing anything shady, and in fact they’re the ones who’ve been managing her since she got her first break at Disney. So why the pink slip?
We’re told Selena feels she’s outgrown her parents. She believes she’s now old enough — and famous enough — to have a seasoned professional manager with other A-list clients.
Selena has argued plenty with her parents over the direction of her career — not to mention over dating Justin Bieber — but we’re told family friction was NOT the reason for the split. We’re told Selena remains close with both of her parents, although they’re not happy about the decision.
As for who Selena wants to rep her, we’re told she’s still looking for the perfect candidate.
So basically, this is her way at getting back at her parents for telling her she should stay away from dirtbag Bieber, right? We don’t need no stinkin’ parents! We’re grown! You can’t tell me what to do! (I’m rolling my eyes.)
That being said, I do think it’s possible for you to “outgrow” a professional relationship, but unless there’s something that they’re not doing for her that she thinks some other manager can, it’s really some petty bullshit. Let me guess – next she’ll be managed by Scooter Braun?

Vanessa Hudgens, mega hippie, was asked to explain Selena Gomez is 5 words in a Mobio INsider chat with fans , and one of them was “gypsy”. Prepare for backlash, because the word gypsy has been viewed lately as non PC.
From Us Weekly:
A follower asked Hudgens, 25, for “5 words to describe Selena Gomez.” The High School Musical alum replied, “Beautiful, talented, go-getter, loyal, gypsy.”
The Spring Breakers costars have remained close since the 2012 film, and recently cuddled together at the Vanity Fair Oscars after party in early March.
Do you have a problem with Ms. Hudgens using the term “gypsy” to describe her friend? Why or why not?
How would YOU describe Selena Gomez in 5 words? Here are mine: boring, pretty, ill-advised, boring, boring.

Selena Gomez is a hot ass mess in the worst way. She has an alcohol problem, a Justin Bieber problem and apparently she’s delusional about both. You see, for years people were pressuring her to be sexier, to look and act a certain way, but you know what? She’s not going to take it! She’s fighting back! By… posting “sexy”, half-naked pics of herself online to show those busybodies who’s boss?
She took part in the We Day conference in Oakland, California this week, where she gave a little speech to a crowd of screaming fans, and what she had to say was… inspirational, sure. If she actually lived what she preached!
“I’m surrounded by people who are supposed to guide me, and some of them have and others haven’t. They pressure me … you gotta be sexy, you gotta be cute, you gotta be nice. You gotta be all these things.”
“You all have pressure that you have to deal with every day I’m sure with school, with work, with friends, with parents, with family. … They tell me what to wear, how to look, what I should say, how I should be,” she continued, getting emotional.
“Until recently, I had given into that pressure. I lost sight of who I was. I listened to opinions of people and I tried to change who I am because I thought that others would accept me for it.”
Now that she’s learned she doesn’t “know how to be anything but myself,” Gomez is hoping her fans follow the same route.
“I know what it’s like figuring out what types of friends you have,” she said. “I’d be lying if I said I’ve never tried to make myself better by giving in because I have, but I’ve learned from my actions and for all of the things I’ve done, I’m proudest of that. I’ve learned from my mistakes.”
I mean, look – she’s 21, so of course she’s going to be an idiot in a lot of ways. We’ve all been there, done that, got the t-shirt. But this is why the trappings of celebrity are even worse, because kids are looking up to another kid, essentially, who has no more answers about life and the right way to live it than they do.
But sorry, Selena girl, I don’t think you’ve escaped that pressure. In fact, it looks like the exact opposite, if you ask me. I mean…

Selena Gomez needs to take a note from BFF Demi Lovato‘s book and send herself back to rehab, because she is all over the place these days. Not only did she quit her first stint in recovery (from alcoholism and Justin Bieber addiction, apparently), she’s also continuously reunited with JB and is now posting “sexy” pictures of herself on Instagram, including naked ones:
The photos, Selena says, are a teaser of a “secret project” she’s working on. I sure as hell hope that secret project is getting her damn life together, because she’s going downhill quick. That’s not to say women can’t post naked pics of themselves and be sexy all the livelong day if that’s what they so choose and what makes them feel good, it’s that clearly homegirl is a bit of a mess considering how often she gets back with the walking shit stain that is Justin Bieber, and now suddenly she’s posting shit like this?

Taylor Swift doesn’t fuck about, apparently. We know she’s never approved of BFF Selena Gomez‘s relationship with Justin Bieber, but she really took shit to the next level by apparently cutting her off for good after Selena’s decision to get back with his stupid ass.
From US Weekly:
Swift is disgusted that the pair are back together, cutting off her bestie after tweeting just last July that Gomez was “the closest thing I’ve ever had to a sister.”
But Gomez rekindling of the Jelena flame isn’t the only thing peeving Swift. She believes Gomez “used” a brief romance with the Grammy winner’s pal Ed Sheeran last June to make her jailbird sweetie jealous.
“After Selena pulled that move, Taylor started distancing herself,” a source tells Us.
LOL wait, what? Selena got involved with Ed Sheeran? Where was I? Where were any of us? This whole thing is hilarious and might be completely untrue, but I say good for Taylor on this one. Selena getting back with Justin is a HOT mess of the highest degree, and I wouldn’t want to be around it either. Sure, I know it’s Selena’s life and she can ruin it however she’d like, but come on. You can only pick up the pieces for your friends so many times before enough is enough.

If anything will make you gag harder than knowing that Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber are back together, it’s probably knowing that they’ve also been choreographing “passionate” dance routines to John Legend songs together and renting rehearsal space to perfect their moves.
I don’t even have words for this fuckery, but I think it’s hilarious that Selena clearly sees them as star-crossed lovers who are destined to be together against all odds. I mean, we were all young once, so I get it, I suppose. Everyone goes through their share of idiotic bullshit – especially when it comes to relationships. But damn, I’ve never seen someone SO resistant to the truth that’s right in front of their eyes as Selena Gomez, man. That is some extreme low self-esteem.
Also hilarious: Justin really, seriously thinks he’s an honest-to-God thug. I can’t even look at this idiot anymore.
