Selena’s emotional AMAs performance of her new single ‘The Heart Wants What It Wants’ totally tugged on our heartstrings, but there was one person who wasn’t too impressed. Justin has mixed emotions about his ex’s ‘dramatic’ performance, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
We couldn’t help but wonder what Justin Bieber thought about Selena Gomez‘s teary rendition of “The Heart Wants What It Wants” at the 2014 American Music Awards on Nov. 23. Now HollywoodLife.com can EXCLUSIVELY reveal why the Biebs thinks his ex-girlfriend was “exploiting their relationship” at the awards show.
Justin Bieber On Selena Gomez New Song: Why He’s Now Upset About Performance
Instead of congratulating Selena on her big night at the Nov. 23 American Music Awards, Justin is holding back and HollywoodLife.com knows why!
“Justin thinks Selena was exploiting their relationship by being so dramatic on stage and making it seem like he’s the heartbreaker in all of this,” an insider tells Hollywoodlife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
This is a far cry from when Justin considered making a surprise appearance at the AMAs to support Selena.
“At first he wanted to go to the show but then his team convinced him not to go because they said he would look like a fool,” our source explains. “Instead he went to New York to listen to a popular preacher. Every time he gets too preoccupied with Selena, he throws himself into religion. He has not even reached out to Selena yet to congratulate her on her performance.”
Ouch! That’s gotta hurt Sel, especially since we know that she’s always been there for Justin in good times and bad. He should be happy about her success!
Why Justin Skipped Selena’s AMA Performance
As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Justin had second thoughts about surprising Selena at the American Music Awards.
“Justin’s team and Pastor Carl Lenz convinced him to skip the American Music Awards and spend time at Hillsong Church in New York City instead. He’s been reminded to spread the gospel rather than dwell in the trappings of Hollywood,” an insider told us EXCLUSIVELY.
Perhaps it was for the best. What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Did Selena exploit her troubled relationship with Justin? Are YOU surprised that Justin is upset about her performance? Tell us what YOU think!
