You know that feeling of pride you get when your ex’s friends drunkenly admit that they love you? That “hell yeah you miss me, I was the best thing that ever happened to you” smugness that builds in your body and feeds your ego. “He’s never going to find anyone like me,” you think, as a smile spreads across your otherwise permanent bitch face. Yeah, that’s a great feeling.
And then those times when the script is switched, and it’s your friends telling you how great he was. Or a heartbreaking, “whatever happened to Connor? We liked him so much!” from your own mother. Yeah, mom, I liked him too. Until he started stuffing himself in random supermodels, getting in trouble with the law, and fucking with my head by writing one song apologizing for everything and then another one telling me to go fuck myself. Oh, what’s that? I’m not dating Justin Bieber? Well, that is just how I assume Selena Gomez responds when people ask about him. Because according to Buzzfeed, she sure as hell didn’t handle it any better when she saw fans made signs about her ex.
Selena Gomez has been straight killing it since, well, forever. She is an actress, a singer, and the ex of a very famous pop star. Unsurprisingly, she’s pretty fucking over being reminded of the last one. While on her Rival Tour in Fresno last Sunday, one fan took it upon herself to declare their love for Jelena, AKA Justin and Selena, as a couple. As a couple that already tried and failed multiple times, one of those times causing Selena to check herself into rehab for emotional distress. For most people, this is a pretty obvious sign that maybe that should be a relationship you just let die and leave alone. But not for Selena’s fans, especially one in particular. “She’ll love this!” the fan probably thought to herself, while holding up possibly the worst sign ever made that reads “Marry Justin please.”
So Selena, being the classy put-together person she is, took the sign, crumpled it up and threw it on the floor. Once and for all telling people to get the fuck out of her business.

Selena probably did this because it is annoying as fuck to constantly be reminded of Justin by literally millions of people on the daily. Especially when she probably, at some point, did want to tie the knot with the Biebs. But that ship has long since sailed. It is also rude to intentionally cause that pain. If I was lip-synching my heart out during a competition and someone decided to make a sign about my ex, you better believe I’m setting it on fire. And possibly the person who is holding it, too.
But there is another possible reason Selena destroyed the sign. Selena prides herself on being a ~musical artist.~ She takes pride in her work. So when she sees a poster made with no colors, no glitter, and horrible penmanship, she could have been outraged. How dare someone bring such trash to her show? Maybe she didn’t even read it. I know I have a hard time willing myself to give a shit about literally anything that isn’t written in puffy paint. Can you imagine the cooler that fan would paint? Tragic.
Either way, good on you Selena. Keep doing your thing and try not to let these people bother you. You’re a strong, independent woman and you don’t need no man. Besides, that gives me a better chance with him. Right?.
