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 tellsRadarOnline.com 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 RadarOnline.com.
“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 RadarOnline.com 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?

Does anyone else get the idea that Justin Bieber is one of those guys who treats his girlfriend like shit, day in and day out, and then maybe once or twice a year he does something really nice and romantic so that if she ever calls him out on being an asshole, he can go “nuh-uh, babe, I planned a private screening of Titanic“? Because I really, really do.
What A list tweener singer told his on again and off again B list tweener girlfriend they would be off again unless she lost some weight. He said he doesn’t like to see any fat and that she was getting “too curvy” for his own liking and embarrassing him in front of his friends by getting big. When she started crying, he said it was her problem, not his.
That sounds like Justin Bieber all over the place, doesn’t it? And unfortunately, Selena Gomez is getting a lot of flack for her new “fuller figure.” No, really. Here’s a photo of Selena taken over the weekend, just so you can see all the “weight” she’s “gained”:
Whoa, isn’t that just totally crazy? Isn’t it so bizarre how young ladies who still very obviously still have baby fat have, like, baby fat? And isn’t it just so completely outrageous how if you’re sitting down and leaning to one side, how your skin will look different? What a strange world we live in.
To sum everything up, Justin Bieber is a douchebag, Selena Gomez is way too good for him, why does this relationship still have to exist?

It might be hard to believe that someone like Selena Gomez doesn’t look stylish and put together at all times: after all, she’s got a mighty fine man to keep interested! But this photo is clearly proof that even stars can look a hot mess from time to time. And goodness me, she looks like a burning hot mess.
No bra. A tight, unflattering night dress looking thing. And that hair. I can’t even say anything about that hair. It’s just all too much. But you know what? I kind of love it. I appreciate it so much when celebrities are seen looking like they haven’t showered in two days or done laundry in two weeks. It makes me feel so much better about myself when I do the same thing.
Now, I do need to tell you that this photo was taken while Selena was on a movie set. I’m not sure if this is a costume or if she’s just slumming around until she gets her hair and makeup done though. And I also need to tell you that this photo is sparking up some pregnancy rumors. For real. Do you see that tiny little tummy Selena has because she’s a human being, and a young human being who clearly hasn’t lost all her baby fat yet at that? Yeah, that’s the spawn of Bieber. Lord have mercy on us all.

Here’s Selena on … DUN DUN DUN … Disney:
“Being part of the Disney Channel was such a blessing, and I’m super happy with what my show accomplished, but acting is something I would like to take on more seriously. I don’t necessarily feel accomplished. I want to create a whole different persona when it comes to acting.”
LOL! Oh, OK, Selena.
Here’s Selena on her next project—a new music album, WOOT:
“It’s going to be different — a little older but still really fun.”
On wanting to do a musical collab with Justin—and NOT her boyfriend Justin:
“Who I would die to work with, but I don’t think he ever would—I don’t even think he’s doing music anymore—is Justin Timberlake. Just ’cause I love his music sooo much.”
On being frugal with clothing money:
“I’ve never been comfortable with saying, ‘Here’s a top that I’m going to sell for $350, and it’s just a T-shirt.’ I get sent things that are really nice, and I’m like, ‘This is cute,’ and I look at the tag and it’s $200. I’m like, Oh my gosh, people probably think I buy it, and I don’t. It’s really weird.”
On Justin (not Timberlake):
“It’s really fun. I’m lucky. I’m 20. I don’t take anything in my personal life too seriously. I have great friends and a solid group of people I love. I feel like everything else will come organically.”
So I guess that means Justin and Selena are on the outs this week, then, huh? I mean, come on. “I don’t take anything in my personal life too seriously”? “I have great friends …”? Well where does the enamored Justin Bieber come in? What about the promise ring? The ocean sex? The tru luv 4-ever, y’all?
I don’t know. I guess I shouldn’t be so hard on Selena. She’s cute, she’s down-to-earth, and thus far, she’s been relatively scandal-free. Either some big shit’s going to hit the fan over the next few years, or she’s going to fade into obscurity in five. I’m hoping it’s the former, myself.

I mean, seriously, ladies, look at that fine specimen right there. Really just get a good long look at that tall glass of water. Couldn’t you just drink that right down? If you got to walk around on his arm, wouldn’t you constantly thank the heavens that you’d been so incredibly blessed?
According to Justin himself, yes, yes you would.
From Star via Celebitchy:
Seriously unbeliebable. Cocky Justin Bieber has been heard telling Selena Gomez that she’s “beyond lucky” to have him as a boyfriend. “She’s so arrogant and immature at times,” a tipster says. “Her friends keep telling her to just dump him for good already.” But whenever he senses that she’s ready to end things, he pulls off some romantic stunt, like renting the Staples Center for a screening of Titanic. “Those kind of gestures go a long way with her,” the source says. “But she probably won’t put up with him much longer.”
Oh god, the Titanic thing again. Is Justin Bieber seriously the guy who does one single romantic thing for you and then holds it over your head for the rest of the relationship? Of course he is. I bet when Justin hit that photographer and Selena got all pissed at him over it, he was like “shut the f-ck up, babe, or you won’t get no more private screenings of Titanic,” and she was like “you just assaulted someone,” and he was like “yeah, just like I assaulted your heart at the Staples Center.” And then he asked for a blow job.
What a character, you guys.

Poor, poor Justin Bieber. Sure, he’s a superstar, the new King of Pop, even, but he’s still an 18-year-old boy. We may know him as the best boyfriend ever, but he still has urges, and he still has needs that even his beloved Selena Gomez can’t satisfy.
Yes, we’re about to talk about Justin Bieber’s sex life. Strap yourselves in, friends. It’s about to get ugly.
From Us Weekly via Celebitchy:
Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber are struggling to hold on to each other. Bieber, 18, has spent the last year and a half wooing Gomez – renting LA’s Staples Center for a private screening of Titanic, lavishing her with gifts, treating her to a helicopter tour of Toronto – but sources say the pair have been on the brink of a breakup for months.
“They fight and then make up all the time,” says a friend. At issue? Schedules that mean spending too much time apart – and plenty of girls willing to ease Justin’s loneliness.
“Justin loves Selena, but he’s starting to feel antsy,” reveals a source close to Justin. “He’s in his prime and can get any girl he wants. He has definitely thought about being free.”
At Justin’s March birthday bash, Selena and Justin stayed close and “Selena kept telling everyone she wanted to have Justin’s babies.” But just days later, Gomez left for Florida to shoot Spring Breakers and Justin stayed behind in LA.
“Selena’s schedule is crazy and has become a source of contention. She has broken big plans – like a trip to Mexico – with Justin six times, and he complains.”
By mid-May, Bieber was losing patience.
“He feels he should be tapping all the girls who come around,” says the Bieber source. “It’s hard.”
Justin tried to initiate a split, but Gomez wasn’t having it. “She freaked out,” says the source. “So he apologized and got back together with her.”
Then, at the MuchMusic Awards in June, Justin was acting “weird” says a source, and then he had a mini-breakdown. As his trademark hair was styled, “Justin was not in a good way. He was upset and crying, saying the relationship was over.”
But – surprise! – it wasn’t. Come July, the two were cuddling in LA. The source says, “They are kids! Of course they fight. They can both be dramatic.”
In the end, “Justin is still crazy about her and knows how lucky he is to have her,” says the Bieber insider. “Everything is not always perfect, but for now they are happy.”
I really can’t decide what makes me feel ickier, the idea that Justin Bieber believes that “he should be tapping all the girls who come around,” or the fact that I laughed out loud after reading the bit where he was crying while getting his hair done. Stars, they’re just like us when we’re getting ready for the eighth grade prom!
But really, I hope these two kids work it out. I mean, I don’t really want Selena to get her wish of having Justin’s babies, but I kind of want Selena to get her wish of having Justin’s babies. The gossip, you guys. The gossip it would bring. The pictures, and the statements. The onesies that Justin would start selling that would say things like “swaggy baby” and “swag” and “swagger.” “Made by swagger.” “I’m two months old and I’m a swaggy infant.”. Oh, and the songs that Justin would write about the situation. It would be really glorious until Justin started ruining the baby’s life.
