Selena Gomez may have Taylor Swift as her date at the 2016 Grammys, but she was still asked about her ex, Justin Bieber on the red carpet — and she totally took the high road.
Even thought it wasn’t part of the live Grammy Awards, during the pre-show it was announced that Justin Bieber won his first ever Grammy Award — his song “Where Are U Now” took home Best Dance Track! He was awarded it alongside Skrillex and Diplo. So, how did Selena Gomez feel about the whole thing?
“I’m very happy for him. Honestly, so cool,” Selena told ET on the red carpet. She also added that she’s crazy about the collaborators on the song, Skrillex and Diplo. “They have such a cool energy amongst all of them to be able to create something like that. It’s really great.”
Of course, we know that Selena will away love Justin, but is happy to be doing her own things — before the show, she even said she actually spent Valentine’s Day with her girlfriends! She looked absolutely stunning on the red carpet in a blue Calvin Klein sequined dress, walking with her bestie Taylor Swift.
We told you that Justin was hoping he’d run into Selena at the show. “If Justin could run into anyone at the Grammys, it would be Selena, hands down,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com. “She’s his lucky charm — that’s what Justin has always told her. They still text every so often, but haven’t seen each other for some time now. For Justin, it would be a welcome surprise to see her at the awards show.” However, we know that Selena is “beyond done” talking about him, as she told Rolling Stone. She later said again that she was “so exhausted” with their drama, but does “care about his health and well-being.”
Maybe did run into her before his big win? Maybe he will run into her later? Regardless, we love that Selena can take the high road on this! And why shouldn’t she? Are you surprised, HollywoodLifers?
