Truth bomb alert! Justin Bieber confirmed what we all feared: he had a wandering eye when he was dating Selena Gomez. In fact, JB admits in a new interview that he struggled with being faithful to Selena when he was constantly surrounded by ‘beautiful women’ when they weren’t together.
Justin Bieber, 21, and Selena Gomez, 23, may be back on good terms now, but a new interview explains why they were so on-and-off throughout their relationship, and it’s heartbreaking. Apparently, Justin just couldn’t stay true to his sweetheart on tour — and it ultimately cost him his relationship with Selena.
Where did it all go wrong? The answer comes straight from Justin himself, in an interview with I-D, and it sounds like the pressure of being a young pop star constantly in the public eye and the distance between them on the road led him to stray from his then devoted girlfriend “We were working out how to be in a relationship, how to be ourselves, who we were, in the middle of having people judge our relationship through the media,” said Justin. “I think that really messed my head up too.”
So sad! First loves are hard for any teenager, but the added pressure of worrying what everyone thinks and expects from you has to make it a billion times harder. However, Justin’s choices after that are what made it impossible for Selena to trust him. “Because then, it’s like trust and all this other stuff that starts messing with your mind,” says Justin. “You’re on the road. And there are beautiful women on the road. And you’re just getting yourself into trouble.” Nooooooooo Justin!
We hate having all of our worst fears come true. We can’t imagine anyone sweeter or more beautiful than Selena. But then again, Justin admitting this could be a major sign that he’s growing up. He’s been doing a lot of work on himself lately: apologizing to fans, admitting he ruined his relationship with his mom, ending his feud with Seth Rogan. And now, he and Selena are back on good terms. He calls her his “homey,” and he supported her at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Maybe all of this means he’s ready to be the man she needs, and we couldn’t be more excited to see where this goes!
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Could Selena take Justin back if he was cheating on her? Sound off below!
