Bonnie Says: Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez Make A Fantastic, Perfectly Matched Couple

Tue, May 24, 2011 6:42pm EDT by 52 Comments

Too many young teen couples choose each other for all the wrong things, but Justin and Selena deserve each other for all the right reasons.

They may be young, she’s 18 and he’s only 17, but in this case, the success that Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber have both achieved allows them to have a healthy relationship!

Selena has starred in the hit Disney sitcom Wizards of Waverly Place for four years, recorded 3 hit albums, including the new top single, ‘Who Says,’ and toured extensively.

Justin is the #1 teen pop star in the world, has just completed a 13- month world tour, has sold 5.5 million albums, has the largest grossing concert movie in the U.S., Never Say Never, at $70 million ($98 million internationally) and has just signed on to star in a comedy with Ashton Kutcher called What Would Kenny Do? Together the two are The Biggest Teen Couple since Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake made sweet, romantic music together.

Now, after months of speculation and Selena refusing to confirm that Justin was her boyfriend, and of Justin describing her as “amazing” but nothing more, the pair used the Billboard Awards to come out as a couple, where unlike the Vanity Fair party, their love was on display for the world to see. When Bieber won Top New Artist, one of the six awards he landed that night, he stood up and kissed Selena on the lips in front of millions of viewers, That was it! They were fully public!

It was a moment that they had both probably thought about and discussed ad infinitum.

After all, with Justin’s multi-millions of crazed fans, who each, hoping against hope, that they would be his future girlfriend, going public with their romance now, was a considered and deliberate decision.

It also was a decision, no doubt, that they couldn’t run away from — they like each other so much, they didn’t want to hide their feelings and relationship any longer.

In fact, just two evenings before, Justin called Selena “my beautiful girlfriend” when he dueted with singer-songwriter Ernie Halter in Costa Mesa, CA.

I applaud them for coming out, so they can — like normal teens — enjoy their relationship. And unlike many young couples, this pair has A LOT in common. Both were raised by single moms, who have been extremely involved in their careers, but protective.

Both are exceptionally talented. Neither is some manufactured Milli Vanilli-esque star. Both are beyond appreciative of their fans, and willing to submit to countless fan photos, hugs and meet and greets. They both have the maturity to understand that none of their success — no matter how much talent — would have happened without the unwavering support of fans. And to maintain those fans, you have to have a warm and giving relationship with them.

Selena recently told Teen Vogue: “My fans are amazing. They love me, they support me. And I do everything for them.” She calls her youngest fans, her “littles,” and says “I just wouldn’t want to do anything that might make them uncomfortable.” In other words, she’s quite happy being a role model.

Perhaps, though, the most important thing they have in common is the deep understanding of what they are each going through. How many other teens are extremely hard-working, world renowned pop stars, with millions of fans, and enormous adult pressure?

NOT MANY! These two can relate. Says Selena, “He’s been in my life for so long and it’s just nice to have someone who understands what you’re going through.”

They can understand each other, and that is what probably is the biggest bond these two have. And you know what — they’re lucky to have found each other.

I hope they have a fabulous time on their vacation in Hawaii. And I bet they actually are being chaperoned there. These two aren’t, in certain ways, being allowed to grow up too fast. And that’s another reason why they belong together!

In some ways i don’t agree with their relationship. But reading this, It just seems right. But pretty much, i’m happy if he’s happy and i couldn’t care less what they do. It’s good that they finally told the world that they are together. I guess after a while people will stop obsessing over their relationship. Like with “Robsten” it was in the papers everywhere when it was just a rumor. Then they let it out, and then after a couple of months, the world lost interest. It’s like at high school. You know when there are those two people that seem totally into each other but they won’t admit it? This is pretty much the same. Except, instead of school kids its millions and millions of people. I think they deserve a normal life. Even if they have to use the back door at the movies sometimes. All i’m saying is i’m happy for them both and i wish them all the best! :)

here if you are not 18 it is illegal period. You have to be 18 period, but some people do not know that. The court will rule on if that couple is the legal age limit. he suppose to be 18, but here there are so many people that date like that, but many are careful and at least start when that other is turning 18 really soon. yes it is illegal if your not 18 as long as no one say nothing then what ever I guess haha. The thing is you have to get someone to press charges.

You are wrong. It is state to state in the United States. In some states at 16 you have the right to consent to sex.

Yes I know it is state to state, and some states very little on 16. 16 to 18 basically, Lets say this where they are in Cali is 18. Just because it is consent does not mean anything there are limitations within the age ranges as well. They base it on how old and everything, so yes in your state you have to know the limitations as well. I said 18 cause in many states it is set at 18, I have heard that some states are thinking about changing theirs in the future, so who knows and I kinda don’t care I mean I just answered a question.

I am very happy for them both, but at the same time i think that they should have told the world that they were dating a long time ago, the have been dating for a long time, & fans are angry cause they kept it from us, most of us including myself just wanted to know the truth, they are an amazing couple & i support them 100% but im also a huge fan of Justin Bieber & i was jelous at first i mean what girl wouldnt be, Selena is a very lucky girl to have a amazing boyfriend like Justin, I just wish that they would have told everyone a while ago cause they both have lost many fans over this, espescially Justin, & i feel bad for Selena aswell i mean she has to go through “death threats” & horrible comments for teens all over the world like “stay away from my man” “hes my boyfriend” etc … but shes bound to get that by dating a huge superstar with crazy girl fans haha, but i am very happy for the both of them & love them both :)

A, I don’t believe it’s real. Even if it is, it goes without saying that two people this age will never end up together, long-term. Call it puppy-love, first love, or a fling, but this is the sort of thing that never works out. Nor should it work out. Successful relationships require experience and that experience is obtained through trial and error and through the experience gained during mistakes made during the course of previously failed relationships. Love also required a level maturity generally unattainable by teenagers. Virtually nobody gets it right the first time. This is no different then Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears. But it looks more like a mini-Me verison of Ryan Seacrest and Julianne Hough, to me. Anyway, to suggest they are some sort of a perfect match is naive and juvenile at best. I don’t see how this article could have possible been written by an adult.

Statistics prove that the relationship will last longer if the female is older then the male . This way the woman is more experienced and can keep up with male stamina.

What do statistics way about adults dating underage kids? Selena=adult, Justine=underage. Most states would throw you in prison for that.

Alot of states will, look they are celebs so they can pay their way out of everything pathetic. they look good together, but she could have waited til he turned 18 at least she bout to be 19 years old. regular people like us will go to prison for that mess, to be honest I think this is another sign saying that this relationship is all staged by their managers. If not these parents have issues. I am not hating cause I don’t care, but im tired of every time you turn around a regular person getting thrown in prison for the same crime a celeb just finished doing that walked or got special treatment. Ridiculous if you ask me, but thats them and let them do what they do fake or not.

Their photos don’t lie–starting with the ones from their Caribbean vacay back some months ago. It looks like they’re crazy about each other even back then when it was silly to deny a relationship. I doubt she’s Justin’s first girlfriend. But I agree that it probably won’t last forever as so few Hollywood relationships do. These kids are very young despite growing up fast. Amazing lives they’re living though–and they seem well matched for now anyway.

The ignorance that comes from this post is staggering. I know many “High School Sweethearts” who were married around their age (couple years older) and are still together.

My parents would be just such a couple. Nice try.

You’re talking about them like they’re babies! Selena’s been in plenty of other relationships before Justin and Justin has been in other relationships before Selena so I’m pretty sure they know their preference in what they want in a relationship. Yes they are young and they may not last and grow up together and get married but they seem to be a “perfect match” for right now. I personally think this relationship will last a good while! If not a lifetime! I’ve never seen them as happy as they are right now! and obviously they really love each other if they’ve decided to go public! Usually Selena never goes public with her relationships shes obviously falling for Justin right before our very eyes!

Well I mean they bout to be together for a year actually. they been dating since like December. I have seen too many things around that point to this relationship, but they do look good together no lie. I have to say that everyone knew when she was dating those other guys. I am unsure if this is real or fake just by her never going public and she liked Taylor and the other ones as well. I think that they should leave em alone and let em do what ever and what happens happens.
