Did Selena Gomez Go To The 'Vanity Fair' Party Alone To Boost Her Career Separate From Justin Bieber?

Mon, February 27, 2012 11:50am EST by 29 Comments

Selena flew solo from her bf Justin at the ‘Vanity Fair’ Oscars party. We love how she’s so independent!

Selena Gomez, 19, walked the red carpet at the most exclusive Oscars party on Feb. 26 with mom Mandy Teefey — leaving bf Justin Bieber behind. And no, this did not mean trouble in paradise.

We think it’s great that Selena brought her mom along for the Vanity Fair Oscars party. Even though she’s in a serious relationship with Justin, that doesn’t mean that they have to spend every minute together. Plus, it’s important for them to focus on their careers — separately.

“Selena’s camp doesn’t want Selena to be known as ‘Justin Bieber’s Girlfriend’ rather than an actress and a singer or entertainer,” a source tells us exclusively.

We love that even though time is precious for these lovebirds because they can go weeks without seeing each other, they still make time for friends and family. That is definitely how a healthy, young relationship should be.

This will only benefit their relationship and their careers. Plus, this totally shows that Selena’s a confident and independent young woman, which is amazing!

What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Is Selena the most independent and confident woman in Young Hollywood? Vote and weigh in below.

Reminder HWL readers, and prudes that like to comment with the useless point of her not being an independent woman. Come to us when you’ve done even half of the things this lady has accomplished. I don’t even need to say or explain all her actions throughtout these years, all the readers with an actual sense of truth and sincerity have said it already. I’m uber glad she is making big moves and is being known for her own work, she always has, but these boy toy heartthrob fanatic girls are always all on each successful girls sack, it’s ridiculous, go to school, focus on your own high school and elementary drama with your darn colleagues. The only thing wrong she has ever done was the choice of men, no excuse me, BOYS, she had to be with, but other than that she never, an I repeat never needed anybody to get her work recognized, and with that I really hope Selena crushes all you haters with her damn success. Comparing her to others is absurd, she has her grown into her own flow and she knows exactly what she’s doing, confidence and the whole enchilada, and that’s a real woman! you go GIRL!

This does NOT show that she is an independent woman, it seems to me that she is getting ready to dump Justin. Since Justin’s fame is dropping down, she will dump him like how she dumped Nick and Taylor and move on to another popular guy. She is such a user!!! Even though Miley is a slut, at least she uses her own talent to reach her fame. UNlike selena who uses guys to help her achieve where she is now. Selena might have a sweeter personality than Miley but I defintely respect Miley’s way of staying in the media, BY USING HER TALENT AND FEEL OF ART.

Wow. Brenda. Did you really have to use a sockpuppet to place your retarded dribble on the internet?

Let me tell you really slowly: (because else you cannot understand the words of it.)

1)Justin was not there, because he had to do something else. Also why does Justin always has to be with her?

2) Selena was dumped by Nick AND Taylor L. Because they dropped her like a stone. Not the way around. Also, they treated Selena really badly. (broke her heart)

3)Selena did not need to use them, because she is more famous than those two who are NOT that famous at that time. Even now she is more famous than NIck and Taylor L.

4) Selena is just as famous as Justin. Only in a different way. Justin is famous in the music business and Selena in the movies.

5) Selena won 12+ Awards for her roles in the movies. I cannot say that Taylor L and/or Nick will EVER win one. (they were nominated or ‘won’ (Nick did) Razzies for their ‘acting’

You sound really pathetic as a Selena hater. If you think she’s ugly then there’s not going to be any other pretty girl in this world existing. Her clothes is made by D & G. I bet it would cost more than 200$. If D & G puts it for auction, I’ll guarantee you that the price will go up as well, that’s just how it works in the celebrity world specially if the person who wore it is popular. Lol! Selena hasn’t done anything to you, why would you hate her so much that it actually gets into your nerve! So sad for you, you’re life probably sucks that’s why. Watch out for karma to strike back!

Selena may not be as popular as Justin, but she is popular in her own rights because of her own fan based. In 2007, she has her own show WOWP. In 2009, her first single “Naturally” was being played on radio. In 2010, her single “A Year Without Rain” became a hit as well. Both of these albums went platinum even before she got involved with Justin. She got all her awards in acting, including Emmy, on her TV Series/ WOWP. Since Disney is her house brand, a lot of Selena’s fans are still young. In 2010, she has the choice to accept adult roles, but she sticks to her plan of doing GP movies because she loves and still cares about her younger based fans. She could have earned more millions if she did so. Selena has gotten great recognitions in 2009 on Kid’s and Teen Choice Awards which are very fan based. When she got into a relationship with Justin, she lost quite a bit of her own fan based. In 2011, Selena did her third album, “Who Says” & “Love You Like A Love Song” became hits as well with her album turning platinum. Selena started to do more adult stuff in 2011, that’s including taking in edgier roles. She didn’t earn these roles because of Justin, but because she has great potentials in acting. She was destined to make it bigger in 2011 because another Disney queen is going off the limelight and her relationship with Justin has added some light and spice into it. She launched her clothing line “Dream Out Loud” in the last quarter of 2011. She got all her hosting jobs not because of Justin, but because MTV loves her and she has already built that relationship when she introduced her album through them in 2009. Regardless, the haters made it bigger by slashing her all the more–making her moved up more into the first spot. Justin also has the same problem with haters, but these haters have actually made him bigger and more popular. We can’t deny that. Do you think the big numbers in their twitters are all fans, there are also bunch of haters in there who are keeping tracks of every move they’ll make and waiting for their downfall. Fortunately, these 2 people, Justin and Selena, are more level headed and they refused to yield to these negative vibes, that’s why they are still up where they are supposed to be. The media will take everything shining, but once you show your wild and crazy lifestyles, they will dump you like a hot potato. This has been proven to happen for years in history. Think whatever you want to think, but proving how bad and worthless Selena is will never prove anything because these are delusional haters who make up evil things in their minds on the person they hate. They will never be open-minded enough to see the great personalities of the person they hate–it’s pathetic for hating somebody who is bigger than you and who’s also staying relevant right now. Selena works hard for where she is right now. It doesn’t matter how long it takes for you to get there. What really matter is how long you will stay there in the business ? With her great potentials in acting, her great personalities and her great work ethics, I believe that she’ll go places and will be there for a long time until she’ll decide to quit.

Just saying

Posted at 7:27 PM on February 27, 2012  

I truthfully find it funny how people say Justin is more famous than her. The thing is look at it this way, Justin is well known, but that is only because of his fans,(which is the same thing with every celebrity). However when it comes down to it, most of his fans only like him because of his looks. Now I’m not saying that he does not make good music or anything, but every single time he changes his appearance he loses several million fans, such as when he cut his hair. And outside of that group of fan girls Justin is not liked by many people. I, myself respect him for having a successful career though. Now with Selena she of course has her fan girls like Justin but I think she is more respected by others in her career and I truthfully can’t wait for her upcoming movies so that she can be seen as more than just a Disney kid.

I wish Selena is more respected by others in her career
The reality is that people more respect her because compared with other Disney teenstars she has a pretty good image .As a singer , she has the absolute visibility ,But her career can not comparable with Justin’s ,they are completely different . we can say JB and CB , ChrisBrown is more respected by others in his CAREER.
Justin spent a very short time to reach the top of the peers,he hasn’t any professional training before,there are many factors in his success. but Usher and his manager everyone give him a chance just because of his talent, boys pretty than him are Everywhere

I mean to be honest I’m not that big of a fan of either of them, together or apart, but I mean whats the big deal with her spending a little girl time. I mean I spend a lot of my time without my boyfriend, mostly because we go to different colleges but I mean I don’t see the big deal here

Oh my god it’s the first time Selena’s spent time with her family and the paparazzi knew about it. She always spends time with Justins, He needs to open his eyes and realize that his girlfriends a famewhore looking for fame. Tbh she’s got no talent in singing it’s all autotune and it sickens me how she copies Mileys every move like there proof on google. Also, Her fans are the worst people I’ve ever communicated with they think Selena lves them when actually she called them Useless want proof? I’ll give you it. She sent it to a hate account I’m following on Twotter

Lmao you sound so pathetic it’s hilarious. Selena’s got no singing talent? I don’t see you performing at award shows, coming out with three albums (all of which went gold), and coming out with numerous singles( several of which have gone platnumn) . And how the hell is she a famewhore? Ever since she started dating Justin all she has received is hate from Justin’s obsessed fans. On top of that Justin has admitted that it was HIM who wanted to meet her in the first place. Copying Miley’s every move ? Just because both have had shows on Disney and are still very relevant in the industry of young Hollywood does not mean she is copying. Last time I checked Selena wasn’t smoking salvia through a bong or taking inappropriate pictures like Miley. And where is this proof of her hating on her fans through twitter because her only true twitter account is @SelenaGomez and if your only proof is some random kid saying that she told them that, then that shows how naive your are to believe its true. Please grow up
And if you wanna hate get some valid points first.

@Random Person Now it is my turn to try to say it on a nice way:

Justin is not THAT more known. It is only because of his crazed ‘fans’ that people talk more about him.

It is not about popularity. It is about being famous. They are both two different people who are REALLY good in two different things. You can have a lot of fans, but that does not make you that famous.

Selena actually won 12+ awards plus two emmy’s for her acting (by doing this on her own) and Justin won just as much for his music. (with help by Usher)

Oh hush about her being famous because of “Justin”
As I do remember she had her hits, Naturally , tell me something I don’t know, WOWP , and the movie another Cinderella story. I’ve been a fan of her since 2009.. so before you come and say ” Oh she’s famous off of Justin Bieber ” get your facts straight. PLUS she was on barney for 2 years! Justin and Selena are TWO different people with TWO different set of fans .. and TWO Different Life’s. Just because she’s Justin’s girlfriend, she is still her own person.

I thought she said Nick Jonas made her hide behind walls and come in separate cars and everything and she hated that. Now she’s making the deutche stay home so she can have a “career moment”. Look who’s calling the kettle black.

No. That is not true. Justin could not come to ‘Vanity Fair, because he was working on his new album. Just do not listen to HL. They are making things up again to sell news.

Yeah…only in the 12-18 female demographic that lived without Disney. Because the last time I checked, her career has been longer than his.she’s an incredibly promising actress, but if I were her, i’d break up with Justin, because if anything ppl will not take her seriously if she continues being seen with that kid.

Well, that depends on whats more important to her, her career or her happiness!! If Justin makes her happy and makes her feel good about herself, why should she give that up? Money and fame doesnt always make a person happy!! We see that on the news everyday!!

Yea he maybe had a shorter career but look how fast he rose up to fame because he had the fans already…Selena became i say famous once wizards of Waverly place came out and that wasnt until like 6 years into her career but really everyone started to know her when she started to date Justin Bieber and everyone knows him even if you like him or hate him but thats the point Justin is way more famous then her but in their relationship it doesnt matter they support each others careers which is sweet of both of them …

No. Justin is not THAT more famous than Selena.

Before Justin began to become famous, Selena already won a lot of awards from her movies (PPP, Another Cinderalla etc.) AND from her hit serie. She even won two Emmys(sp?) for God sake! (Selena won 12+ awards!!!)

Do not forget that she won awards for her music, doing charities for a lot of good causes and has an own clothing-line.

Then in 2010 he JUST became famous in the music business.

Conclusion: They are both just as famous. Only Justin in the Music and Selena in acting in movies and series.

Ok. I will try to say this as nicely as I can.
Justin Bieber= 100+ million dollars, and EVERYONE, and I mean EVERYONE knows him. Dont believe me? Ask around. Ask your grandma. Ask a kid. Ask ANYONE!

Selena Gomez= 20+ million dollars. Ask around. Not everyone will know who she is. When they ask “Who?” Tell them “Justin Bieber’s girlfriend”. They will reply with a big “OOOOHhhh

Oh please!! Even if they dont spend every waking moment together, she is known as Justin Biebers girlfriend,, just like hes known as Selena Gomez’s boyfriend!! Selenas camp have no say in that at all! If Selenas camp wnats her to be known as independant, make her dump Justin, and then be miserable by herself, that would probably make them happy,, as long as they are getting paid by Selena they will say anything!!
