EARLIER // AUGUST 29: Perhaps Justin Bieber missed all VMA action last night on Instagram, so the pop star decided to make a grand return. His account is active and all is right in the world.
We missed you, bb.
EARLIER // AUGUST 16: Gomez took to SnapChat to share her regrets: “What I said was selfish and pointless,” she wrote. Sigh. Was it? Or was it so necessary.
UPDATE 1: Bieber made good on his word.
The Internet exploded today after Selena Gomez called Bieber out for flaunting his romantic relationships on social media (see below), which ultimately resulted in the Biebs pulling his account from Instagram as promised.
And another one bites the dust...
. @pattiemallette listen to my mom. I only have Twitter Facebook and Instagram right now. If I reopen my snapchat I will tell u.

At the time of posting, #JustinDeactivatedParty was the number one World-wide Trending Topic on Twitter.
I predict the Biebs will reactivate this week. Next at the very latest (bookmark me).
Justin Bieber's life is a movie, and everyone's watching.
So let's get to the good part and passed all the nonsense.
Over the weekend Bieber showered his millions of Instagram followers with snaps of him and his rumored new boo, Sofia Richie (yes, Lionel Richie's 17-year-old daughter). Unfortunately for the Biebs, being hyper-famous comes with a price... no one will ever be better than ex Selena Gomez.
Beliebers started flooding his sappy posts with "JELENA" comments and lambasted Richie's IG account with snake emojis (Taylor Swift is sitting back somewhere relieved). This forced Bieber to step in and threaten if the rudeness continues, he'll make his account private.
"I’m gonna make my Instagram private if you guys don’t stop the hate this is getting out of hand, if you guys are really fans you wouldn’t be so mean to people that I like," he said.
Here's when Selena Gomez steps in to kill em' with kindness. She left a comment on the post above saying:
"If you can’t handle the hate then stop posting pictures of your girlfriend lol -it should be special between you two only. Don’t be mad at your fans. They love you."
This prompted a response from Bieber, who alludes to Gomez and claims she used him to get more famous. "“It’s funny to see people that used me for attention and still try to point the finger this way," he wrote as a response comment. "Sad. All love."

Way to smooth that one over, Bieber. See the rest of his lovey-dovey Instagram posts with Richie below:
There are more important things to talk about... Why can't people use their voice for something that fucking matters?
