It was a celebrity-filled audience at Justin Bieber’s ‘Purpose’ concert in New York City on May 5, but we couldn’t help but notice that one special person was missing. Selena Gomez was in the Big Apple for the Met Gala earlier this week…so why didn’t she hit up one of Justin’s shows in Brooklyn!?
The stars came out for Justin Bieber’s Barclay’s Center shows in New York City this week, but where the heck was Selena Gomez?! We thought for sure the 23-year-old would show up to one of her on-off love’s concerts after attending the Met Gala in the very same city May 2, but she was nowhere in sight. Are these two on bad terms again?!
Justin played in Brooklyn on May 4 and May 5, so it would’ve been a good opportunity for Sel to stick around the Big Apple so she could go and show support. She already attended one of his Staples Center shows in Los Angeles back in March, so it would’ve made sense for her to do so again with the convenient timing.
However, Selena is prepping for her very own summer stint on the road — she kicks off the Revival tour on May 6! The “Hands To Myself” singer has been hard at work with prep for the show, so it’s likely she had to jet out of NYC quickly to get back to work. Her first concert is in Las Vegas and it’s definitely a big deal!
But while Selena might not have made it to Barclays, some other stars did…including another Bieber ex, Hailey Baldwin! The gorgeous model brought her parents to the show on May 5, and she was also caught partying with Justin the night before. Madonna and The Weeknd were spotted in the crowd, too.
Even though Sel skipped the Met Gala after-party to avoid Justin, he’s not giving up hope that they can stay close. In fact, he even has a special surprise planned for her at the kick-off Revival show.
“Justin is planning on doing something special for Selena’s opening night,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “It will be a surprise, but will most likely involve sending tons of her favorite flowers to her dressing room. He wants her to know that if he’s not there in person, he’s there in spirit.” Awwww!
Do you think Selena should’ve stayed in New York to go to Justin’s concert, HollywoodLifers?
