Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez Can NEVER Be in a Music Video Together

justin bieberDoes anyone else have this feeling that we've been talking about Justin Bieber's "Boyfriend" video for weeks now and that there's literally nothing left we could say about it? Me neither. The 18-year-old pop star is still filming this music video and photos from the set have been released that reveal he gets all hot and heavy with the female lead. She looks like Selena Gomez and she acts like Selena, but she isn't Selena. Bieber's love interest in the video isn't played by his real-life girlfriend -- the role instead went to an up and coming no-name.

So! Why didn't Justin and his team cast Selena? Because they're not idiots, that's why.


Showing Bieber and his girlfriend make out and grope each other in one of his most highly anticipated music videos would be career suicide. His fans need the illusion that they have a shot, that they could be "that girl" in the video, that if only their moms would drive them to the casting calls at the local mall, they too could catch Bieber's eye and make him fall madly in love.

Seeing Selena and Justin going at it would be too real for his legions of Bieber Fevered fans. It would be a cruel reminder that he's taken, that he's happy without them. I don't want to understate anything here, but if Selena were in the video, the government would collapse, the world would stop rotating, and billions of broken-hearted tween girls would storm our world capitals in black clothing and goth makeup, demanding blood for the injustice they've suffered. Hell hath no furry like a Bieber Fever hangover.

Selena Gomez, or SelGo as I just learned, doesn't give two shits about the stability of our world order and decided to show up on set anyway. Between takes she straddled Justin (my eyes! my eyes!) and gave him little smoochies and such. She better check herself before she wrecks herself and realize that there's a reason she's not in the video, and if the safety that that provides is compromised, god help us. God help us all.

Do you think Selena Gomez should've been cast in Bieber's video?
