Bonnie Says: Stars Like Selena Gomez & Justin Bieber NEED To Stop Hiding Their Relationships!

Wed, May 4, 2011 9:30pm EDT by 44 Comments

Selena, come clean! What does it take to admit happily to the world that you are dating Justin?

Listen, Selena Gomez, I understand that you are not alone on the celebrity front, trying to keep you relationship under the radar, but you’re NOT fooling anybody!

You’ve been photographed holding hands with Justin Bieber, you were caught kissing at the Vanity Fair Oscar after-party. You dressed in his favorite color purple at the LA premier of his hit film Never Say Never. You’ve visited him on his tour in Malaysia, stayed with him for a romantic weekend at the St. Regis Hotel in Orange County, Calif., and been seen going for romantic walks on the beach in Venice, Calif.

So why do you persist in pretending that you aren’t involved? You recently refused to confirm your coupledom on an appearance on the Ellen Show.

Now, you’ve just told Seventeen magazine that you “didn’t know” if you’ve ever been in love. And you clearly told the mag that you wouldn’t talk about Justin because there was no mention of him. Hmm!

Now, Selena, your silence on your relationship is typical of many celebrity couples. Ever since screen icons Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy kept their love affair unconfirmed for decades, stars and their publicists have persisted in believing that stars should go so far as to lie about and deny a relationship, rather than fess up.

Brad and Angelina insisted they were “just friends” for months before photographs of the couple on vacation with her son Maddox outed the pair.

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson denied for months that they were romantically involved. When asked, they pulled out that favorite Hollywood response: “We’re just friends!” Only when they were photographed holding hands was the romance “officially” confirmed.

Susan Sarandon – who at 63 is 32 years older than Jonathan Bricklin, the ping-pong impresario who is a partner in the NYC club Spin — wouldn’t own up to any relationship with him.

Then there’s Annalynne McCord and Kellan Lutz, Enrique Iglesias and Anna Kournikova, Justin Timberlake and ALL his girlfriends, Madonna and her boytoys, and now Vampire Diaries stars, adorable Nina Dobrev and hunky Ian Somerhalder — they’re all “just friends!”

Then there’s Prince William and his new wife, Kate Middleton. For years, the pair kept the world wondering — were they or weren’t they dating?

Now, in their case, I understand that there was a serious reason to keep their love under wraps. The British paparazzi hounded his mother Princess Diana and he needed to spare Kate, who had no royal bodyguards.

But in the world of non-royal celebrities, it seems to me to be a silly exercise to deny and deny and deny a relationship that’s real.

In this age of fans posting their photos and sightings on Twitter and Facebook, there’s no way to keep a real romance hidden from the public. Couples are always outed.

So, Selena and you other romance deniers — Why lie? It’s wrong. And it’s pointless. People know the truth. You don’t have to reveal intimate details about your love life if you don’t want to. The press and fans can respect that.

Just don’t make yourselves look silly by denying the truth. It always comes out!

Do you agree Hollywoodlifers? Or do stars have a right to lie about their love — no matter what?

I agree. Quit denying; you’re only fueling the “showmance” accusations when you do. You’re dating this person only to get and keep your name in the paper. One declaritive, straight-forward statement is enough: we’re dating. The myth that your fans will not support your projects if you tell the truth is nonsense; I think some people feel you are insulting their intellegence this way. It’s not the lie, it’s the cover-up.

If they don’t want to tell everybody about dating, it’s they’re problem… They are people too… They have the right to have secrets…

I agree with most of the comments… It’s not all selena. I’m guessing ‘Bonnie’ is a Justin bieber fan cos she bashes on selena but doesn’t say much about Justin.

Hollywoodlife needs to get a life!!! Stop bashing Selena. If celebrities want to keep their relationships private we should let them. I would hate to be famous!!!

Why are you getting in to their business? Stop judging him if you don’t want them to confirm a romance! First, you say that you don’t want to get in their personal business, and then you go and bash her boyfriend!!! Stop contradicting yourself!!!

This is none of your business Bonnie Fool-er, they are just kids. Justin and Selena are making the media look like fools because they don’t know what to write about their relationship, cause Justin and Selena will never talk about it.

Uh, they don’t owe us anything. Sure it benifits you Bonnie if they tell all their details, but at the end of the day why does it matter? Selena’s young, maybe she’s just dating and having fun and doesn’t want to be seriously linked to anyone right now. Teenagers usually change their mind about who they “like” as much as they change shoes and if you’re travelling and working like she is and dating people who are doing the same, maybe you don’t have time for something serious. Even older celebs will say that. So lay off her and worry about your own relationship.

btw .. your poll is obviously rigged considering most of the comments think its nobody’s business if they admit to dating, yet for some reason most of the votes are saying they should admit to dating. hmmmm hollywoodlife fails.

WTF

Posted at 11:36 PM on May 4, 2011  

WTF?!! THIS ISNT EVEN NEWS! this article isn’t about anything!! this is a grown woman begging and asking for teenagers to talk about their relationship in front of the world!! LEAVE THEM ALONE AND GROW UP!! its awkward to talk about your relationship in front of millions of people, people you don’t even know! how many of you would go to your parents and tell them every detail about your relationship, yet your asking these kids to tell the WHOLE WORLD their business?? get lost! and Hollywood life why is this all Selena’s fault?? Justin hasn’t admitted to dating her so why should she get all the blame?? your so pathetic and I am sick of this site. I am going to find out where I can file a complaint and maybe this will force you to find real journalists and editors who aren’t immature and biased.

Why is always attacked Selena Gomez.

Has Justin Bieber added at some point, the press or on stage, loud said … I LOVE SELENA GOMEZ?

No.

Why? … it’s their business, not ours!

Well, I don’t know about Justin and Selena’s relationship, but the public doesn’t need to know about every aspect of it, i.e. where they go on vacation, their every move, etc.)
The more discreet and private the relationship, the better it will be for them.

who does not have a love life, writes about other.
And this website sends more wrong messages, than truth is well known.

Well I agree that they should just come clean. We ALL know that they date and it’s pointless to lie. It’s their privacy and all but if they just admitted it maybe we’d let them be

If a couple were “in love” as most people are suggesting, why would they hide it? That is not a good argument to defend a Hollywood couple. I’m sure most people here would not hide their feelings for their partners, so why should famous people be defended using that argument?

Sorry, but I have to disagree. It’s their business, not ours! Why do you constantly write about it? Give them some privacy!

Why do you constantly read it? You are obviously reading articles about their relationships, so you try to get in their business. Don’t say that they should have their privacy when you are the one reading about them!

If it is “their business” as you say, then why are you reading articles about their relationship?
