After two beautiful years together, North America’s cutest lovebirds, Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber, have broken up, and while the end of any relationship is always a bummer … no matter how too young the couple is for it to actually matter … this one has a few interesting twists to spice it up.
The common belief is that Selena initiated the break-up and that it’s the result of the strains of a long distance relationship. They both have extremely hectic schedules resulting from big-time careers, and Justin and Selena are still quite young, 18 and 20 respectively.
A source told People magazine: ‘She broke up with him about a week ago.With them being apart so much it got complicated. She had some trust issues. It’s not easy, but the relationship needed to end.’
Though their careers are built on horrible music and even more horrible acting, the complications of spending so much time apart must have been torturous. Can you imagine being separated from that little bird chest? (I’m talking about Justin.) It had to sting.
I am on Selena’s side … not because I actually care very much or have any actual knowledge of their personal strife … but because she appears to have more staying power, not to mention talent, and I suspect Justin will turn into Davey Jones within a few years. It also makes more sense to me that as Selena edges closer to legal drinking age, she realized that 18-year old Justin would be a huge drag … although I gather being served is not a big problem for young Hollywood.
When Justin’s not busy vomiting on stage or nailing Victoria’s Secret models (probably not, but for argument’s sake), his busy schedule takes him all over the world. Earlier this week, he was in New York City, performing along with Rihanna and Bruno Mars at Victoria’s Secret’s annual fashion show. After the performance, he attended “The Lion King” on Broadway with a group that apparently included Hungarian Victoria’s Secret model, Barbara Palvin, who then became the instant target of the fury of hardcore Beliebers.
While the timing is convenient to blame her for having a hand in the break-up, it seems a bit ridiculous. Justin Bieber is cute like a pre-pubescent 12-year old and she’s a ridiculously hot Victoria’s Secret model. I have a very hard time believing that a women who ranks among the elite few singled out for their wildly excessive sex appeal, would take Justin too seriously.
Whether it seems realistic or not, there may be more to the Barbara issue than we’re aware of. Amid reports of trust issues, Selena re-tweeted a photo of Justin and his friend Lil’ Twist that showed Barbara in the background. The caption of the tweet was a bitchily cryptic “…..” but if it can be correctly interpreted to mean to Selena was displeased by Justin keeping company with Ms Palvin, then, yes, Selena may have some trust issues.
Justin seems like a sweet kid, led by his dick as all 18-year olds are, and probably subject to periodic bad judgment … again, as all 18 year olds are. Selena is probably somewhat insecure. In all likelihood, the relationship just ran its course. I just hope they don’t waste their cute years sulking or, even worse, channeling that emotion into some more supremely terrible music.
