SMH all over the place at this fuckery. Selena Gomez clearly hasn’t learned her lesson to stay away from utter dickheads, because here she is hanging out with Justin Bieber. By hanging out, of course, I mean riding Segways down a street in Justin’s Calabasas, California neighbourhood. Ah, the romance! Justin and one of his cronies leaving you in the dust, his bodyguards holding up traffic as they ride in cars alongside the group… true love isn’t dead!
Listen, I know when you’re young, you do stupid things and you’re attracted to all the wrong people and all of that, but COME ON.
Thanks to @justinbieber told us to f*** off, and his bodyguards blocked the road, so hello to my new followers!

Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez have been best friends for a long while now, but it wasn’t so long ago that Demi Lovato was saying how much she missed her friendship with Selena. Well, have no fear, the trio are all back together now and everyone is happy and FaceTime fun abounds!
Selena posed the above photo on her Instagram account on Sunday night, with the following caption: “Taylor’s tea, Demi’s laugh. Honestly, can’t complain.”
It’s a shame Demi couldn’t be there in person to partake in the fun, but gotta love modern technology. I’m actually on Skype was we speak! Not with Selena Gomez, of course… OR AM I? (I’m not.)

Selena Gomez recently canceled her tour, citing the need to, “spend some time on myself in order to be the best person I can be.” Since then, she’s been chilling out and breaking up fan fights on her Instagram account, like you do.
But sources close to the singer say the real reason she canceled her tour is because of lupus. Yeah, apparently Selena Gomez is battling lupus. From Huffington Post:
Sources told Popdust that the 21-year-old singer was diagnosed with the autoimmune disease a couple of years ago, and suffered multiple “flares” recently, that cause facial swelling, extreme fatigue, headaches and joint pain.
“Selena has been going full throttle the past few years and her Lupus is really catching up with her right now,” a source told the website. “She knows that she needs to take some time to address the disease and look after herself better if she wants to live a full and healthy life.”
A rep for the singer told the Huffington Post “no comment” when asked if Gomez was suffering from the disease.
This is what her rep has been telling the press about the canceled tour (from E! News):
She is not having a breakdown. She wants to be the healthiest that she can be and this means taking a little break. But she is fine. She is OK.
I don’t know anything about lupus other than what I’ve heard about it on House (not much), so I have no idea how much truth could be behind these rumors. Anyone who knows more about the disease than I do want to weigh in?

Fans of popstars can be absolutely fucking brutal. Lady GaGa detractors are told to get AIDS and kill themselves, Bieber fans threaten to commit suicide, One Direction fans plot to kill the girlfriends of the guys in the band and/or their pets… it’s an absolute mess. The bullying is a bit out of hand, so when Selena Gomez saw some of it happening in the comments section of her Instagram account, she actually stepped in to put a stop to it.
Apparently one fan posted a photo of a scar on her arm with the caption “I just wanna die so all of this will end already. I feel so worthless. It’s hard for me to ignore people.” That’s really sad, but instead of sympathy, someone going by the handle @selenagomesfan responded with “Cut, cut, cut, cut!” Lovely!
So, here’s how Selena responded to that:
That’s sweet that Selena has put her money where her mouth is in terms of trying to stop bullying, instead of just saying she’s against it and then actually sorta encouraging it (AHEM LADY GAGA COUGH COUGH). Still, I know it’s a bit cynical of me to say this, but young people on the Internet = THE WORST, and there is a chance the person who claimed they wanted to commit suicide was doing it specifically for attention or in the hopes that Selena would respond, as many before her have done with many a celeb (lest we forget the One Direction/I’ll kill my puppy saga). Of course, with suicide you can never take a chance that someone is just acting out for attention, so I think it was nice that Selena did that, I just wish people under 18 were banned from being online, heh.

This week, who will YOU slap with BEST, WORST, and WTF?

Selena Gomez was due to head over to Asia Australia for some concerts in early 2014 following the release of her latest album, Stars Dance, but that won’t be happening now. No, Selena’s not ill, there weren’t scheduling conflicts or anything like that. Instead, she just needs to… spend some time on her own and “become a better person”, apparently. Whut?
Here’s her statement (via Billboard):
“My fans are so important to me and I would never want to disappoint them,” comments Gomez in a statement issued by promoter Live Nation. “But it has become clear to me and those close to me that after many years of putting my work first, I need to spend some time on myself in order to be the best person I can be. To my fans, I sincerely apologize and I hope you guys know how much each and every one of you mean to me.”
I mean, by all means, obviously. Touring is exhausting and spending time working on yourself is never a bad thing. It just seems slightly bizarre and really random. It’s not like she’s seemed on the verge of a breakdown like her former boyfriend has for the past year, but maybe she’s taking this break to make sure it doesn’t get that bad. Either way, way to make the smart choice and put your mental state first, girl. After she cursed her way offstage earlier this month, I’m with it.
What do you guys think is really going on here?
