After the whole Taylor Swift tongue lashing at the Billboard Music Awards I figured Selena Gomez was too ashamed to give Justin Bieber another chance. After all there was also the booing and the ridiculous behavior that she had to get over as well. But she must see something in him because reports this morning have them back together for a trial period. Yes, apparently they are going slow this time around and treating their relationship more maturely. Is that word even in Justin’s vocabulary?
I’m going to try not to shit on this too much this morning. Partly that’s because I don’t care about this couple AT ALL. And the other half of me knows that they’ll be over again soon enough especially when Justin’s eyes start roving again and Selena realizes she can sell albums and snag movie roles without him. Am I a cynic for just seeing this as a glorified business arrangement? Probably. But I don’t care. I just don’t get the Selena Gomez/Justin Bieber back together thing. I think it’s because I want to like her so much but she keeps getting in her own way with this nonsense. Have you ever listened to her in an interview? Sense, right? The chick has sense and a head on her shoulders. She’s witty and quick and articulate and quite charming. I can’t get past Justin’s Canadian Gangsta routine. Agh, but they’re kids! I have to let this go! This is what young stars do. They break up and get back together until someone/something better comes around. So keep your eyes open Selena. There’s so much out there and some of them don’t actually believe the earth is only 10,000 years old.
Do you think the Selena Gomez/Justin Bieber trial period will last? Why does she keep doing this to herself? Does Selena like the attention of being Justin Bieber’s girlfriend? But why when it would embarrass so many others?
