Don't you love it when celebs send out not-so-subtle clues to the world? Like, Hey everybody! Try not to look at the ring on my finger, which I am conspicuously flashing at you via Instagram photo! Oops, did I just suggest I may be engaged? NO COMMENT. (Wink!) It's so obnoxious. Well surprise, here's Selena Gomez flashing a ring with a diamond "J." She wore it last night at the Kids' Choice Awards Saturday night and she posted a photo featuring the ring via Instagram. Just in case your Monday hasn't yet given you a reason to roll your eyeballs, sit up straight, light up your pipe of disapproval, and prep your peepers for this sight.
Say it with me now, everybody. Oh. Mah. Gah. Are Selena and Justin engaged to be married? That is just teh the worst.
The celebs' publicists are disingenuously saying, "Why NO, the kids are definitely NOT engaged!" Meanwhile, a few days ago, Justin "mysteriously" tweeted, "As long as u are with me I will never leave you." Which is about as meaningless as it gets. He could just be sending a secret message to his last few remaining fans (aww, kid was booed at Canada's Juno Awards). Or it could be a message to Selena. As long as we're together, we're together, or something like that. Remember! Wherever you find yourself, there you are. I am the walrus, koo koo ka-choo. What are we talking about again? Oh yes, Selena's definitely-not-engagement ring.
It's hard to muster the shock and disapproval over this unholy union, but I'm trying. I mean, it could just be some dumb publicity stunt, or they could be secretly engaged -- hence Selena's hushing. GET IT?!?
Whether they're engaged or not, Selena and Justin seem very much back together again, much to the world's dismay. A source tells People, "No one's happy about" Selena and Justin being back together. Kind of how no one's happy about Russia taking over Crimea -- in the same kind of shrugging, passive way. Selena's family "feels like they've done all they can and it's up to her. She has to figure it out on her own."
I agree. But I also think everyone's disapproval fuels this relationship. It's kind of a Romeo and Juliet kind of thing, another way for them to rebel. If we all just ignored them, they would eventually walk away from each other. I know I'm not helping by writing about this gossip (sorry, occupational hazard). But I really do believe the best response to this rumor is to say, "Oh yeah? You two engaged? Great. Go for it."
Do you think Selena and Justin really love each other or are they just in love with forbidden love?
