Young Hollywood is an example of what happens when you don’t go to public school and don’t have a chance to get all of the angst and hysterics out of your system. Seriously, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez scream middle school guidance office, but because they’re talented they get to have their fights at The Nice Guy and in front of the whole world. Plus, they don’t stop when you turn 16 and get over yourself. (Back in my drama days, our fights took place on MySpace and “Sad. All love.” would be spelled “Sadz 4 u. All luv.”)
Not following? It all started when Justin Bieber posted about 229579 pictures of his new girlfriend Sofia Riche aka Nicole Riche’s little sis. If you didn’t know Nicole Riche had a little sister, you should be ashamed (or proud?) of yourself for not knowing all of the models for Madonna’s Material Girl clothing line or watched Candidly Nicole, where Sofia role-played Brenda/Kelly infamous fight over Dylan from Beverly Hills, 90210. #DonnaMartinGraduates #TheBiebsDidnt
Beliebers’s did what beliebers do best and spammed Sofia’s Instagram page because they don’t want her dating their precious Bieber. The former Monkey owner responded with a threat to make his account private (the horror!) and his ex-girlfriend and all around badass Selena Gomez commented “If you can’t handle the hate then stop posting pictures of your girlfriend lol- it should be be special between you two only. Don’t be mad at your fans. They love you. They were there for you before anyone.” (“Kill Em With Kindness,” right Sel?!)
It didn’t take long for Justin to respond with “It’s funny to see people that used me for attention and still try to point the finger this way. Sad. All love.” And then added, “I’m not one for anyone receiving hate. Hope u all can be kind to my friends and eachother. And yes I love my beliebers.” I don’t know what’s worse, that Justin doesn’t know each other is two words or that the term “beliebers” is still a thing.
I know Jelena was a tabloid magnet, but don’t flatter yourself Biebs, Selena was famous before you and after you. “Stars Dance” and “Hands To Myself” are gifts to our generation and I refuse to hear otherwise. In true S. Gomez fashion, she posted a collage (if only “Picnik” was still a thing) of pictures of her and her fans. Providing the receipts just like a Real Housewife taught us all.
However, it didn’t stop there. Selena returned to Justin’s Instagram and left another “like for a truth is” style comment (even though Biebs didn’t ask), but this one was less passive aggressive and more direct. “Funny how the ones that cheated multiple times, are pointing the finger at the ones that were forgiving and supportive, no wonder fans are mad. Sad. All love.”
It’s unclear if the next few comments came from our favorite former couple or some random 13-year old girl who is super good at photoshopping Instagram comments, but it takes a twisted turn when Justin supposedly accused Selena of cheating on him with Zayn (the dude who left One Direction and sings about pillows.) This could cause serious dramz in the girl squad since Selena’s BFF Taylor Swift also loves making cookies with Gigi Hadid (Zayn’s current flame). Is anyone else exhausted? Or angry that I’m killing your brain cells with all of this nonsense?
I’ll leave you with this, it’s shocking T Swift hasn’t commented with some passive aggressive quote in Selena’s defense, but she’s probably mad that “Sad. All love.” is overtaking her own “I’d like to be excluded from this narrative.” Personally, I’m calling for a Biebs/Yeezus duet called “F Your Squad Goals.”
