According to sources, heartbroken Selena Gomez is not, I repeat, is not dating “What About Love” singer Austin Mahone, but there may or may not be something going on there anyway. Rumors started circulating on Wednesday that the two pop stars had been set up by Gomez’s pal Taylor Swift, but it looks like they’re just friends.

“We’re just friends,” Mahone said in response to the rumors. The Justin Bieber look-a-like (that has nothing to do with ANYTHING, people!) continued, “She’s really cool. I mean, I think she’s really pretty but every time I’m in L.A., she’s like ‘Hey you’re in L.A., lets hang out.’”

But are they just friends? A source claiming to know both Gomez and Mahone said, “Maybe they are more than just friends but they are certainly not dating.”

And there you have it. Selena is certainly not dating a teen pop star that bears a resemblance to her on-again-off-again troubled ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber.

You know what? If they are dating, and Selena is happy, then I’m happy for her. If they’re friends and just hanging out, and she’s happy, then I’m happy for her too.

The chick has been through a lot lately -- I mean, how would you like it if you got back together with Justin Bieber just before he got arrested for a DUI with that Chantel Jeffries chick?

Whatever gets you through, chick.

Do you think Selena and Austin are just friends? Or more?
