Selena Gomez Opens Up About Reuniting With Justin Bieber
“Jelena” fans have been freaking out ever since Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber apparently reunited last month. And the giddiness has only ramped up with every new sighting of them riding their bikes or indulging in a little PDA. While they’ve chosen to stay quiet about their rekindled spark until this point, the “Bad Liar” singer addressed his re-emergence in her world in a recent interview.
During a chat for Billboard‘s “Woman of the Year” feature, the songstress was asked about what it was that brought Bieber back into her life. Though she decided not to name him directly, she also didn’t deny their reconnection in any way. “I’m 25. I’m not 18, or 19, or 20. I cherish people who have really impacted my life. So maybe before, it could have been forcing something that wasn’t right,” she said. “But that doesn’t mean caring for someone ever goes away.”
She continued by considering her broader group of (famous) peers, saying, “And [that goes for] people in general. I mean, I grew up with Demi [Lovato]. Nick and Joe [Jonas] and Miley [Cyrus] — we’ve gone through seasons in our lives. I don’t think it’s as serious as people make things out to be half the time. It’s just my life. I grew up with all of these people, and it’s so cool to see where everybody is. It comes back to the idea of me remaining full. I think a true representation of love is beyond just yourself.”
At another point in the interview, she mentioned “hanging out with an old friend” — *cough* Bieber *cough* — and said that when they’re together, they want every conversation they have to be “intentional.” She elaborated: “Meaningful conversations remind you that it’s all within where we are. It’s not about what’s happening with everything else.”
It sounds like she might be ignoring the hoopla around her reconciliation with Bieber (and her breakup with The Weeknd) and is instead focusing on that *special someone* who’s bringing a little extra meaning into her life right now.
