Okay you guys, I’m like really starting to not believe in love anymore. First Heidi and Seal. Then Amy Poehler and Will Arnett. Don’t even get me started on Tom and Katie. According to People, Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber are done. The ever elusive source says Selena “broke up with him about a week ago” due to her trust issues and the distance.
That ain’t right! That’s what everyone says. I mean, I have trust issues. Everyone has baggage. Distance is tough on every relationship. They were Hollywood’s new golden couple and it was supposed to be forever! Because when you date in your young adult life you’re supposed to end up with that person, right?!
False. Selena is a beautiful and talented twenty-year-old who, from what we know, hasn’t really had any other serious relationships. And Justin is eighteen and has a ridiculous fandom and an incredible music career ahead of him judging by his early success. I’m not a big fan of the Biebs, but that music is so catchy. They’ve been dating for two years, which in young adult time is an eternity. Just ask Miley and Liam since they’re getting married (and likely will divorce by 2015).
If this is all true, while it’s sad to see a relationship end, Selena and Justin are so young. Isn’t it better for them to be young and date other people? Shouldn’t they find out if they’re actually meant to be together instead of being basically thrown into a relationship because it’s a good PR move (cough cough Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson). Some people do fall in love at a young age and make it, but most of those people aren’t in the public eye.
I’m personally very intrigued to see what happens with the both of them. Maybe this is all another rumor. Maybe they’ll get back together later. Maybe they’ll date other people throughout their twenties like the rest of us and be happy. Only time and tabloids will tell.
How do you feel about the breakup? Do you think the rumors are true?
