Selena Gomez FINALLY Admits: I'm Dating Justin Bieber!

Tue, March 15, 2011 1:26pm EST by 102 Comments

During a radio interview with Z100, Selena confirmed her relationship for the first time and even explained why she sympathizes with her haters!

After months of dodging the question like a ninja, Selena Gomez FINALLY dropped the bomb we’ve all known for awhile: she IS Justin Bieber‘s girlfriend. However, before you start tweeting hate messages, the 18-year-old starlet wants you to know she understands why you’re upset about them dating and she’s been there before herself.

“I loved Jesse McCartney,” she explained on Z100 March 14. “I was obsessed with him. He dated Katie Cassidy when he was 16 or 17. I hated her, absolutely hated her. I was mortified that he was with Katie and I wanted to be with him. He was my screen-saver!”

She added, “I just did a movie (Monte Carlo) with Katie Cassidy and she was the nicest person ever.”

Even though she sympathizes with Beliebers who are upset about her relationship, Selena is still struggling with the haters (which was evident just one day before when Selena looked miserable at the airport).

“It’s hard,” Selena admitted. ”It hurts, it really does. I don’t feel like I’m doing anything wrong. I’ve been best friends with him for a very long time. It does hurt my feelings a lot but I try not to focus on it. I have a strong family and great fans.”

We feel badly Selena and Justin, 17, get their feelings hurt by passionate fans, but maybe now Selena has opened up, Beliebers will support them more. Justin and Selena were first spotted out at an IHOP date in December and she’s denied being anything more than friends ever since.

Do you think Jelena will withstand the fan hate or will it get between them? Does hearing Selena’s side of the situation make you feel for her? Sound off below!

Honestly I think that if your a true Bieber fan that you would be happy for Justin that he’s found a girl that he’s happy with. And for all you people who hate Selena just because she’s dating Justin it’s wrong. Think if you were in her shoes. For the people that hate Justin because he’s, “gay” or a bad singer then don’t listen to his music and you shouldn’t judge. He’s obviously not gay because he’s dating Selena Gomez. So STOP HATING AND BEING MEAN!

Oh & one more thing. If Justin is changing for her, let him. He obviously must really like her if he will change for her. He is who he is. Worry about yourself & the mean comments you all are posting other than Justin & Selenas relationship. I guarntee you guys don’t even know him. So stop acting like you do. You aren’t in their relationship, so stay outta it. I’m not being mean at all, I promise. I just feel really bad for Selena & Justin because they have to put up with all kinds of threats, mean comments about their relationship & them. It’s sad.

I think Selena & Justin are adorable. They both understand eachother & their busy schedule. Selena is in acting & singing and Justin is just in singing, & they both know they won’t always have time for eachother like they want. I have the biggest ‘crush’ on Justin, but I don’t hate Selena & never will hate her. She is so beautiful & such a sweetheart. I don’t think it should give anybody a reason to hate her. Most fans will never even meet Justin or have any kinda chance with him anyway. Girls need to stop getting mad that he’s happy. If you are a true Belieber then you’ll be happy when Justin’s happy. He’s still the same Justin he used to be. I love you Justin & Selena. You guys rock! :)

U guys r an amazing couple. U guys were truly made for each other but lately Justin has been getting really upset with his fans because they love him but he doesn’t understand tht. They just really love him and I know he kinda wants to be able to just go out and not be recognized but it can’t happen cause he is famous now and can’t do any thing about it. Like I said u guys are great for each other and I hope ur relationship goes well. <3

well justin has changed alot but i dont think its selenas fault justin was gonna change sooner or later its a way of life all of u ppl that are angry and hate selena for being in love are dumb for it because if u guys were real fans and supported justin then maybe he would be lyk before but all of u obsesed fans forced him to be this way so dont blame selena blame ur selfs!!!

They make a nice couple, but Justin is changing. Back then, he would always smile and take pictures with his fans. Although, there was a fan that was so excited and she was videotaping him, and then out of the blue, he told her to put it down. People say he said it in a harsh way, but I don’t know, I only heard all of this. It would be awesome for true beliebers to have Justin return back to his normal state(except for dating with other girls), and still date Selena, that would be perfect. Both of them might increase fans. For those who hate the couple, well, they’re not real fans.

Even though I personally don’t like Justin Bieber or Selena Gomez I think they make a cute couple. Love is love, you honestly can’t control it because it controls you. If you don’t believe me wait until you fall in love yourself, if you’ve already fallen in love, you know what it does to you. I have complete sympathy for them both although I truly dislike them.

It wasn’t Selena who told him that. She really liked his hair, she was joking. Trust me, i know her very very well. He cut them for charity. And Justin’s the one changing her, no offence, but he’s a little rude with the paps but selena was NEVER… think she should stick to that!
