Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber dated and broke up then got back together again then split then reunited then ended it approximate 68 times in the past 5 years, but you know what? Those kids were the real thing! Nevermind that they were immature teenagers with too much money and not enough life experience to navigate the waters of a proper romantic relationship – they could have gone the distance, if only the entire world wasn’t against their love.
From V Magazine:
‘When you’re young and you’re being told so many different things… its almost felt like all we had was each other, like the world was against us in a way.
‘It was really weird but it was incredible. I would never take it back in a million years. You live and you learn, you know?’
‘That’s a growing up kind of thing. I was 18 years old, and it was my first love. The older I get, I’m guarding certain things more.’
‘There were a few months where I was a little depressed, where I wouldn’t leave (my house) as much,’ she admitted.
‘I think I drove myself crazy for a little bit. It was just easier to say, “Hey, do you mind running to the grocery store and picking some stuff up? I don’t want to get photographed.”’
I mean, it’s whatever – we’ve all been there. You’re young and dumb and think the person you’re with is going to be the one you spend the rest of your life with and that if you’re not together, you’d rather die than face another day without them. It sucks and it’s hilarious in hindsight because wowza, were you fucking wrong. Probably like, dozens of times. So I feel for her, in a way.
On the other hand… why is this still news. Talk about milking an angle for press. Even Bieber hasn’t gone on like this. And yes, I know it’s perceived as less masculine to talk about stuff like this and there’s likely a reason why she’s been more open (as I’m sure reporters tend to make it the focal point of more interviews with her), but like… damn.
Anyway, I’m sure we’ll be hearing another story about them being back together in a month or so.
