Selena Gomez on WHY she took back Justin Bieber

Selena Gomez finally broke her silence on her rekindled romance with Justin Bieber. In an interview with Billboard, the 25-year-old singer opened up about why she was drawn back to her former flame and how things are different the second time around.

Gomez—who dated Bieber on-and-off from 2010 to 2014 and recently reconnected with him—cited time as the reason the two were able to spark things up again, despite a toxic romantic history.

“I’m 25. I’m not 18, or 19, or 20. I cherish people who have really impacted my life,” Gomez said. “So maybe before, it could have been forcing something that wasn’t right. But that doesn’t mean caring for someone ever goes away.”

 

The singer also referenced her reconnected friendships with former Disney Channel stars, such as Demi LovatoMiley Cyrus, and Nick and Joe Jonas, as other examples of how she’s developed a different outlook on life from when she first began dating Bieber.

“And [that goes for] people in general. I mean, I grew up with Demi. Nick and Joe and Miley—we’ve gone through seasons in our lives,” she said. “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.”

Gomez also touched on her relationship with The Weeknd, who she dated for roughly 11 months before she reconnected with Bieber. Despite The Weeknd recently deleting all pictures with Gomez on social media, the “Fetish” singer insisted that the two are still friends.

“Something that I’m really proud of is that there’s such a true friendship,” Gomez said. “I truly have never experienced anything like that in my life. We ended it as best friends, and it was genuinely about encouraging and caring [for each other], and that was pretty remarkable for me.”

Though Gomez didn’t confirm nor deny her relationship with Bieber, from the sound of it, she did have a lot of nice things to say about him. We hope the two the best if they do decide to re-spark their relationship.

Selena’s Reason For Giving Justin Another Chance Is Relatable

Are Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez really, truly, actually back together? According to a Selena insider who spoke to People, pretty much yes, and it has everything to do with the fact that the two were each other’s first loves.

The couple known as #JELENA to millions of fans has had their ups and downs over the years, but after going on a romantic bike ride together and then going to church twice together recently, it appears that they’re extremely close to being a public power couple, with Justin reportedly being the one nudging Selena to get back together.

As for why Selena would want to give dating the Biebs another go: According to that People source, “Justin was Selena’s first love. He will always have a special place in her heart. She’s always held out hope that one day the circumstances and timing would be right.”

The source also added that Selena “always saw the best in him” through their first run at a relationship, which is another part of why it seems she’s ready and willing to not just spend more time with him, but also do so in the full eye of the public. And this time, Justin’s ready to meet her at a new maturity level, as a source from his camp shares, “They’re having a great time together. Neither [is] seeing anyone else and they seem happy to leave it at this for now.”

“Spending time together makes them both very happy. For Justin, no one ever came close to comparing to Selena. He always thought she was the most special and now seems mature enough to realize Selena deserves the best.”
