When her relationship with Justin Beiber was just surfacing Selena Gomez was asked by Ellen DeGeneres what exactly was going on between the two of them romantically.
“He’s little. He’s like my little brother,” responded Gomez, 18, about Bieber, who turned 17 on March 1. But when Selena Gomez returned Tuesday to Ellen’s show the TV host asks Gomez again, “He’s like your little brother? … What do you have to say now?”
“I don’t know. I don’t know,” replied Gomez, who’s been silent about what exactly is going on between her and Bieber. “Well,” pressed DeGeneres, “you were trying to hide it still, right? But now you’ve made it public.”
Suggesting this is more than simply a brother-sister relationship, DeGeneres also says, “You went to the Vanity Fair Oscar Party [together] and made me a fool.” With a laugh, Gomez replied: “No, I really didn’t.”
“Yes, you did!!” countered DeGeneres “I promise you, I didn’t,” insists Gomez. “He’s just sweet.” Another laugh. “He is,” acknowledged DeGeneres. “He’s sweet as can be. But he’s not like your little brother, is he? No, he’s not. And he’s a fantastic guy. You can’t try to hide that forever.”
DeGeneres:“I know you all were sneaking around but that’s crazy. You’re both huge stars, and you can’t hide from us.” Says Gomez: “I didn’t lie to you. I didn’t, though. I’ll say that.” “No, you didn’t blatantly lie. A little brother is not someone you want to date.” “Well, no,” concedes Gomez. “That would be weird.”
DeGeneres, sounding something like a Mother Hen: “That would be wrong and weird in so many ways.”
Capping the discussion, DeGeneres presents Gomez with a pillow to take with her on tour. It has a picture of Justin Bieber on it – so Gomez will not miss him.
