Orlando Bloom & Selena Gomez Relationship — Actress Gives Beautiful Speech At We Day
Selena’s life is constantly looked at under a microscope — but the actress is definitely not letting anyone get to her! At the event that celebrates world change, Selena showed the audience that she can relate to their struggles. She said, ‘When people look at me, they don’t see a 22-year-old figuring it out as she goes. They see what they want to see.. I know what it’s like to be judged and to be put down,” She said.
Selena was at the event with her rumored love interest, Orlando Bloom, 37, who she was spotted with after last years event. Selena’s constant on-again, off-again romance with Justin Bieber, 20, is constantly looked at and it sounds like Selena is over the judgment and ready to move on.
In her amazing speech she continued to talk about social media and the influence that it can have.”You are not defined by an Instagram photo by a comment. That does not define you,” she said. “The trick is to focus on the love. Every rude comment, every person that tries to hurt you personally or though the Internet, I want you to forgive them. Just forgive them.”
She encouraged the audience to never limit themselves. “We all deserve more than we think, and in the end, nobody remembers those haters, the comments,” she said. “Nobody remembers them. They’re just background noise. Like my friend Taylor says, the haters are gonna hate. Just shake it off.”
Such a great speech with a very positive message. Selena definitely speaks from the heart and we love that she made her message serious, but added elements of fun — like adding in the reference to “Shake It Off.”
Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez’s Relationship
While Justin and Selena are seemingly not together at the moment, that has not stopped the notorious bad boy from keeping tabs on Selena. As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, it is not a surprise that Justin’s good friend, Alfredo Flores, 26, happened to also be going to We Day.
“Selena told Justin that she was going to be on that flight with Orlando, and Justin was definitely jealous and upset. But instead of showing that to Selena, he made sure his buddy Alfredo was with her to pretty much watch her and report back to Justin if anything happened,” a source revealed. “Justin still is wearing the pants and manipulating Selena for his benefit, she’ll never learn.”
