Selena Gomez & Justin Bieber: She’s Thrilled With His VMAs Performance

Justin Bieber had one of his best and most emotional performances of his career at the 2015 VMAs on Aug. 30 but Selena left the audience right before he took the stage. Does this mean she wasn’t into it?

Selena Gomez, 23, has Bieber fever! HollywoodLife.com spoke to an insider close to the singer who tells us that Selena definitely saw Justin Bieber‘s performance of “Where Are You Now” and “What Do You Mean” even though she wasn’t in the crowd and we can even tell you exactly what she thought about him breaking down into tears at the end! To hear more about Justin Bieber, head over to iTunes and download the latest HollywoodLife podcast for free!

An insider tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively: “She knew going into the night that Justin was both excited and nervous. She’s happy for him and knows he’s relieved that he pulled it off and was true to himself.” This was a huge night for Justin, 21, because it was his first TV performance since he took his hiatus and he had just dropped his new single. We think he totally killed it and we love how Selena actually left the audience as a favor to her ex.

Since Selena was sitting in the front row she and Taylor Swift took a bathroom break to avoid the drama of the cameras panning over to then, according to E! News. This might seem silly to you but it’s actually mad cool of Selena. She was trying to not making his big night about her and by leaving made it about the music, not their relationship.

HollywoodLifers, what did you think of Justin’s performance?
