Selena Gomez’s Plan To Avoid Justin Bieber At Met Ball: Vanessa Hudgens Helped
Gotta keep an eye out for Selener, right? That was totally Vanessa’s intention at the Met Ball!
“It helped that Vanessa and Lily (Collins) were there to keep Selena in check. They were like her cheerleaders and just stuck with her the entire night. They weren’t about to let Selena lose her cool with Justin or act too googly eyes with him,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Thank God for good friends like Vanessa and Lily! Clearly, being Sel’s cheerleader and keeping her in check totally made Justin notice her and want her more. After Justin complimented her all night, the “Where Are U Now” singer even screamed on video that he thought Selena looked gorgeous. But alas, this was all a part of Selena’s plan that Vanessa was there to help with!
“Justin played right into her aloofness, which made him want her even more. It was perfect because this is exactly what she wanted,” our source continued.
