What Do You Mean, Selena Gomez?


Look, no one understands the once volatile, now very mature and adult relationship between Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez.

You’re not supposed to.

If you’re a teeny bop, or celebrating your inner tween as a 20-something like us, you’re very involved with Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez’s roller coaster affiliation with one another. First they’re madly in love, then a breakup, a rekindling, another war zone, then they’re recording songs about each other, partying to ease the pain or finding solace at a private rehab facility blah blah blah. Young love sucks.

When the Biebs revealed his new song is titled “What Do You Mean?”, we had no idea it was a tribute to Gomez and the most commonly asked question from her fanbase. That is, until Gomez told German media she’d never bad-mouth her former flame. She just wants to be good for him (uh huh, uh huh).

But, what do you mean?

“We spur each other on,” she said.

What do you mean?

“People try to turn us against each other, but that will never work.

What do you mean?

“We’ll always support one another.”

After a failed relationship with EDM powerhouse Zedd (“I Want You To Know”) and a strange statement from singer Cody Simpson, who said his brief liaison with Gomez “got weird,” Gomez admits the dating thing isn’t really for her.

“I can promise you, marriage won’t be happening in the near future!”

What do you mean?

“I get pretty nervous and start asking myself if the person only likes me because I’m famous.”

What do you mean?

She means she has no time for bullshit. Instead, she’s focusing on her forthcoming record, promoting “Good For You” and rehearsing a tour.

“I’ve never accepted a rejection or a ‘no as the final answer.”

What do you mean?

“In my profession, you get walked all over if you’re not stubborn to a certain degree.”

What do you mean?

“My life was never perfect, so I developed a thick skin at a young age.”
