Justin Bieber Admits Selena Gomez Breakup in Billboard Cover Story
O-V-E-R. It really is over for Jelena. Justin Bieber admitted that he and Selena Gomez are no more in his cover story for Billboard, the only major interview that the teen has done to support the release of ‘Believe Acoustic.’
In the piece, his manager Scooter Braun alludes to the fact that they did the acoustic EP to expand his style and to show the scope of his talent, and to help him eventually win a Grammy, since he was famously snubbed with ‘Believe.’ The Biebs will not be attending the ceremony next month.
Now that the professional stuff is squared away, it’s onto the personal stuff, which Beliebers care equally about. He did pen ‘Nothing Like Us‘ about Selena.
He doesn’t troll the web looking for the latest gossip on himself or his former relationship, but he doesn’t live in a vaccum and things get back to him, being that he is the most followed person on Twitter.
“There’s so many rumors,” he said. “People say I call Selena every day and she won’t pick up the phone or I’m chasing her down, and these are all fake stories. I don’t go on blogs or anything like that. I hear things. People tell me if something happens on the Internet. It gets back to me, definitely.”
When asked how he feels, and if he is pretty heartbroken, the teen replies, “I’m not in the happiest place that I’ve ever been. I’m trying to get through what I’m going through. Like I said, I have my really close friends to cheer me up and keep me going.”
So there you have it, Beliebers. An admission that Jelena are no more.
The Biebs did keep an upbeat ‘tude in the interview, saying, “I feel blessed that I’m able to do what I love for a living. I can support my family. I grew up without a lot. I remember ordering food off the menu with my mom and we’d have to share because we couldn’t afford more. I love performing. When I go onstage and I see these people? That’s what I do it for.”
And he is only a little bitter about the Grammy snub. “I felt the same way that Scooter felt, I just can’t really … it’s good that he can put it out there and say that,” the singer said. “He had my back just like any manager would. My whole life I’ve dreamed of winning a Grammy. At this point, the excitement of that has gone down. I’m more excited to just make great music for my fans. That’s just something that if it happens, it happens.”
Biebs, you are 18. You have many years ahead of you to win a Grammy. We know that you will win several down the road.
And there will be plenty of beautiful women who are willing to take Sel’s place.
