After being together for roughly two years, it’s not surprising for Selena Gomez to say she’ll ‘always’ love Justin Bieber! While the two couldn’t work things out, Selena opened up about her past relationship and revealed that she will continue to love and support her former flame.

The heart wants what it wants. Although Selena Gomez, 23, and Justin Bieber, 21, went their separate ways after being on-and-off for roughly two years, the “Same Old Love” singer still has respect for her ex. In a recent interview, Selena bared her soul and said she’ll “always” love Justin. She even opened up about the type of relationship she has with her ex today. To hear more about Jelena, head over to iTunes and download the latest HollywoodLife podcast for free!

They’re just friends! In an interview with Elle, Selena revealed that she just wants everyone to know that she and Justin are “genuinely” friends, for now. “I’ll forever support him and love him in a way that… We grew up together. I think people want it to be different,” the 23-year-old explained to the magazine. “We’re too young for that. Nobody was married. There was no… I respect him. And I think he respects me, in a healthy manner.”

It makes sense for there to still be some love between the two. Selena and Justin were dating for quite a while, so those feelings are natural. But now that “Jelena” is over, is it finally the end of that relationship? “I don’t know!” she laughed after the interviewer asked her that very question. Never say never! Anything is possible, especially when two former lovers still have some feelings for each other.

Justin Gets Asked If ‘What Do You Mean?’ Is About Selena

Since Justin and Selena are both musicians, they both endure the same questions about their songs. After Justin’s “What Do You Mean?” single was released, it’s hard to not wonder if the tune was about his exEllen DeGeneres, 57, grilled JB about his new song when he stopped by her show and he simply said, “I wrote the song for women in general.”

What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Are you surprised by Selena’s admission about her feelings for Justin?
