Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber’s latest relationship was a PR stunt and it’s so obvious it’s EMBARRASSING
Just look at the name of her new single
There's always rumors swirling around about celebs doing weird shit to get some press. Like, it's basically a well known fact that Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries' 72-day marriage was a total PR stunt. And there's rumors Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston only got together to make people talk. Some people even think Kanye West's 2018 Twitter freakout is an elaborate ad for his new album.
Well, call me the fucking queen of the gossip mill, because I think Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber's latest get-together was all a marketing ploy. Let me explain.
Historians say Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber started dating in 2010. They first met in 2009, they were first seen in public in 2010, and they were first seen on the red carpet in early 2011. So, that seems like a pretty good approximation of when they called it official. That means, these people have been dating ON AND OFF FOR 8 YEARS.
Selena is 25 and Justin is 24. They've been dating on and off since they were 16 and 17? That not only seems not unlikely, but fucking INSANE. We all know that it's incredibly unlikely you stay with your first love, and most people are able to get over it. But I'd ESPECIALLY hope incredibly rich, incredibly beautiful people would be able to get over someone they dated when they were a teen. Especially after eight years.
There's a few other things that make this seemingly endless love even more fishy. First, they got back together right after Selena Gomez revealed she had received a kidney transplant to treat lupus complications. She made her famous announcement in September, and she was seen out with Justin in November. The pure of heart would suggest this was Justin fawning over his ex who almost died, but think about it: They both needed some publicity.
Selena needed to remind the world that she's a pop star, and needed to find a way to stay in the news cycle while she was taking it easy during recovery.
AT THE SAME TIME, Justin hasn't released an album since 2015, but has collaborated on a number of songs, including two that came out while he was 'dating' Selena. Given they were recorded with smaller producers ('2U' with David Guetta and 'Hard 2 Face Reality' with Poo Bear), they really needed all the publicity they could get.
The only thing that's more convincing to me than when it started is when it ended. Selena and Justin were only back together for about four months. That's… nothing. Especially when compared to eight years. And Selena Gomez is already releasing a new single about going back to an old love. It's literally called 'Back To You.' I'm sick.
Coincidence? I really think not. I fully believe Selena and Justin got back together in 2017, and had Selena's mom stir up some shit to make them both relevant. I'm sorry, Jelenators. I think this same old love ended a looooooong time ago.
