I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I don’t want to live in a world where Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez aren’t dating.
Now normally I don’t care about this stuff. I think Hollywood relationships are largely superficial and nothing more than glorified photo ops. But Jelena is different. Hear me out on this.
Here are some photos of Selena Gomez from about a month ago, when she was dating her on-again, off-again boyfriend, aka global pop star, aka very mediocre hockey player, Justin Bieber.
And here’s Justin Bieber, while dating Selena:
Both look pretty good. They’re healthy, happy, and living their best lives.
Only problem is they recently broke up. And while they stayed out of the public eye for a few weeks, they’re both slowly coming out of their breakup coma and it’s not exactly pretty.
Here’s Selena on a trip in Sydney, Australia over the weekend.
And here’s Justin Bieber.

As you can clearly see from the photographic evidence above, neither person seems to be faring well post-breakup. Justin Bieber looks like a disheveled choir boy who somehow wandered through a car wash/cornfield. And listen, it happens to everyone. We’re all human here. I doubt there’s one person on earth who’s actually happy about every photo ever taken of them.
I don’t even care if you’re uglier than a greasy alley cat with the worst documented case of rabies or a perfect 10. I don’t judge. But Selena and Justin are famous for two things. Their dramatic dating life and being attractive. They can’t afford to just let one of those things go. They’re better together (albeit fighting, a lot) and they’re better pretty. It’s just a simple fact of life.
