Justin & Selena Are Soulmates & Belong Together Forever — Alyssa Says
I refuse to give up hope on Jelena! Of course, I know these two have a LOT to work out in their relationship, but at the end of the day…they’re perfect for each other.
Hate on the Biebs all you want, but he’s the ultimate romantic when it comes to his relationship with Selena. I mean, HELLO, the dude rented out the STAPLES CENTER for his lady so they could watch Titanic together. Who does that?! And while that may have been Justin’s grandest gesture, it’s not the only time he’s went out of his way to prove his love.
Remember when Selena was hosting the VMAs red carpet in 2011, and he planted a kiss on her cheek with all the cameras watching? It was too adorable! And when she hosted MTV’s EMAs, he wrote, “Proud of you,” on Twitter to his gal. Oh, and there was also that time he called her the “most elegant princess in the world.”
Come on…Justin really does know how to make his lady feel good! Even when they’re broken up he makes sure to shower the “Slow Down” singer with compliments, like when he purposely shouted out right in front of paparazzi that she “looked gorgeous at the Met Ball!” Of all the girls he’s been with, Justin hasn’t even come close to treating anyone like this.
Don’t forget, the stars are also older and more mature now than they were when they split in 2013, and Justin has really started to turn his life around – it’s been months since he’s found himself in trouble! Plus, they’re both huge stars and just get what the other is going through in their professional lives, which is hard to find.
At the end of the day, Justin and Selena are soulmates and meant to be together. Case closed.
Justin & Selena Are Terrible For Each Other — Lauren Says
I don’t care how cute they look together, or how happy they seem for the five minutes they are in a relationship: Jelena needs to be stopped.
Yes, I’m sure that once upon a time Justin and Selena were in love. I’m sure that they cared about each other more than anything in the world, and their little teenybopper hearts thought they would be together forever, but if that were true why can’t they make it work? Because it’s not meant to, that’s why.
It’s been years since Justin and Selena’s “romance” was stable in any way, shape, or form. Right now, the only thing stable about their relationship is the break up rate. They need to realize that although they are each others first loves, they are not each others last. Somewhere out there is an amazing, incredible man who will one day sweep Selena off of her feet and treat her so well — all of the time, not just when he feels like it. And don’t worry Beliebers, Justin will one day find a woman that keeps him begging on his hands and knees for her mercy until the day he dies.
Until then, all of this back-and-forth is extremely unhealthy. Not to mention, the fact that Selena keeps crawling back to Justin sets a really bad example to all of her young fans. She should be teaching them to value themselves and know when to move on, not to settle for the past every time it creeps back into the present!
