Selena Gomez responded to Justin Bieber’s romantic #tbt
On Saturday night, Justin Bieber posted a throwback pic that gave us all the feels: a cute snap of him sharing a kiss with his then-girlfriend Selena Gomez. We squeed and awwed over their love for a minute, and then immediately wanted to know: What did Selena think of the tribute? Now, we finally have an answer.
Justin’s pic has over 2.8 million likes and 773.3 thousand comments (and counting), but there’s one comment that has Jelena shippers in an uproar—the one that Selena herself left on the pic. Her reply was spotted by some seriously eagle-eyed fans; if you try to scroll through the endless feed of comments, it might take forever. But rest assured, she liked the photo and left one simple word underneath: “Perfect.”
And now, we have a million questions. What does it all mean? Is this an effort for the Biebs to win Selena back? Is she considering reconciling, or is she just merely remembering the good times? They’ve both been linked to other romantic interests, though none as serious as they were with each other. Now we don’t know what to think. Love is complicated, especially when millions of people are interested in your every thought and move and social media post.
“At first I didn’t care,” Selena told W Magazine in February, addressing the early stages of their relationship. “To me it was: I’m 18, I have a boyfriend, we look cute together, we like that. Then I got my heart broken and I cared. Because people had no idea what was going on, but everywhere it was a million different things. I was kind of in a corner, banging my head against the wall. I didn’t know where to go.”
“We don’t talk often, but we’re cordial,” Justin told GQ the same month. “If she needs something, I’m there for her. If I need something, she’s there for me.”
Oh, you two. A little part of us will always hold out hope that they’ll end up together again one day.
