Selena Gomez is one of the only Disney Stars left that has managed to stay relevant without having a huge breakdown. However, she did start the new year off with a stint in rehab, but the exact reason for her stay was never uncovered. Additionally, her behavior on social media and in the public eye has been different. She hasn’t gone “Britney with the umbrella” or “Miley at the VMAs,” but in my (professional) opinion I think something is up. Let’s take a look at the facts.
It all started in late 2013/early 2014 when Selena cancelled the rest of her “Stars Dance” tour for “personal reasons.” She entered rehab shortly after she was seen hanging out with ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber.
Many reports claimed S. Gomez was in rehab to help her “get over Justin,” and for a while it seemed like she had. But a little over a month after leaving treatment, Justin instagrammed a picture calling her “the most elegant princess in the world.” The two were seen out together again, and I have a feeling hanging out with your ex who was just arrested for a DUI is not good for the mental health you worked on in rehab.
The now infamous video of them dancing on instagram was posted shortly after.
Rumors that Selena’s parents were upset she was spending so much time with the Biebs took the internet by a storm, and recently she fired them as her managers. She has since hired Katy Perry’s management team to take over her career.
Selena soon spends the weekend at Coachella with Kendall and Kylie Jenner. The singer/actress seems happy and puts rumors of her troubles to rest…
…Until she deletes all of the pictures she posted with the Jenner sisters and unfollows everyone on instagram. Apparently Kylie was flirting with the Biebs and Kendall had dinner with him. Side note: the best part of her unfollow spree was Austin Mahone going to the media and saying he was “upset” Selena unfollowed him. Austin, stop trying to make yourself happen. You’re never going to happen (Happy belated Mean Girls Day, more on that later!).
Most recently, Selena was spotted with Orlando Bloom. No one really knows why, but if Orlando gets involved with the drama of young hollywood, the tabloids might explode.
Will Sel get her career back on track and stop making headlines for personal drama? Only time (and TMZ) will tell. And yes, I know all of this is making you feel like you’re in middle school again. Happy throwback thursday!
