Selena and Justin’s Heart[s] Want[s] What [They] Want[s], as the celebrity couple is back for round two.
Recently, the internet was shocked with the news that singers Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber are dating— once again. The couple initially broke up over an alleged cheating scandal in 2012.
In 2012, Bieber was wrongly accused of engaging in sexual behavior with a fan and then getting her pregnant, causing Gomez to end their relationship.
Despite the backlash surrounding the origins of their relationship, fans can expect Gomez and Bieber to have healthy and long relationship due to their history and goal to keep their romance private.
From 2011 to 2012, Bieber and Gomez were in a relationship, which ended in much controversy due to false rumors. As a result, speculators are against the renewed relationship because Bieber and Gomez broke up once before, so they should realize that their relationship is not meant to be.
However, they dated when they were mere teenagers. Now that they have gotten past their immaturity and learned more about themselves, it is fair that Bieber and Gomez date again. As a matter of fact, the swing factor in the couple’s breakup was but a false rumor; Bieber never cheated on Gomez.
It may actually be a good sign that the two are in a relationship. After about five years, the two have had time to rebuild and mature. Bieber and Gomez have gone from pubescent teens to full-fledged adults with careers. In addition, Gomez has dated DJ Zedd and The Weeknd, while Bieber engaged in relationships with Victoria’s Secret model Barbara Palvin, Hailey Baldwin and Sofia Richie. After dating a couple people, Gomez and Bieber have discovered that they truly wanted to be with each other.
Because Gomez and Bieber are childhood friends, they know a great deal about each other, in terms of personality and character. Many couples are unsuccessful because the two people do not understand each other enough, but because Gomez and Bieber have known each other for a long time, this may be avoided. In addition, they can bring out the best in one other, instead of constantly arguing over miscommunications. Therefore, contrary to anti-fans’ comments, we can predict a happy and long term relationship.
Certainly, their relationship is receiving negativity from fans, but not as much as would be expected from a celebrity romance. There is more backlash coming from Gomez’s ex-boyfriend, The Weeknd, as he plots revenge on Bieber. This is questionable, as he broke the relationship up first, but rumors of him dating Bieber’s ex-girlfriend, Yovanna Ventura, have surfaced the internet.
Amidst the negativity, Gomez and Bieber seem to be at the beginning of a healthy and long-term relationship. After all, the two know each other very well, and given their history, should know what it takes to avoid an unsuccessful relationship.
Their first relationship involved large publicity and paparazzi, which indirectly led to their separation. When a celebrity couple is overly public, the media follows their every move, so even the smallest peculiarity may be misinterpreted. Their issue could have been avoided if the media was not as attached to their dating life. Seeing as the couple learned from their mistake, and will be keeping their relationship out of the public’s eye.
Many eyes are on Gomez and Bieber, and no one knows what is in store for their relationship. Hopefully, their romance does not end with one saying Sorry.
