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

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.
