Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato reunited at the 2017 InStyle Awards 😍
This is going to sound nuts, or like the fever-dream that some tween superfan had in 2014, but bear with us.
Remember when we told you that Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber might get back together? Well, we weren’t kidding.
After years apart and after all of the no-holds-barred songs and all of the heartache and the various new lovers, Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber have finally had their little reunion.
From 2011 to 2014, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez were one of the most famous couples on the planet.
Selena Gomez is gorgeous, a talented actress who gives great line delivery and is also one of the greatest singer’s in human history.
Justin Bieber is mega-famous as a teen heartthrob and … some of his music is genuinely enjoyable. Like, a lot of his music isn’t quite my thing, but he’s a popular singer and he’s produced some genuine bops.
(Honestly, his best song is “Despacito” which … is not by any stretch of the imagination his song)
Also, Justin Bieber was a top-notch hottie. He’s still handsome, though some fans can’t stand his look now that he looks like he got into a fight with a printing press … and lost.
Together, they made quite a power couple. But aside from the fact that they were off-and-on and then finally broke up, you can tell that there were problems.
Because … song lyrics.
Maybe the most damning song that’s believed to be about their relationship is “Sober,” from Selena’s Revival album.
Part of the chorus goes: “You don’t know how to love me when you’re sober/When the bottle’s done you pull me closer.” Does that ring any alarm bells? It should.
Because, well, it’s no secret that Justin Bieber had some serious issues.
Scooter Braun says that Bieber was in such bad shape, just a couple of years ago, that Justin might have died if he’d gone on tour before cleaning up.
We know about quite a few instances of Justin Bieber’s terrible behavior. Egging, speeding, that sort of thing … that’s public knowledge.
How much absolute childish nonsense did Selena Gomez put up with behind the scenes? How much will we never, ever know about?
You have to wonder.
So, yeah, they broke up.
Even well after the couple split, though, it’s been no secret that the two of them have lingering … what are those things called? Felines? … Feelings!
Yes, they’ve made it apparent that not everything was quite resolved.
You don’t have to pick your way through song lyrics and analyze them to death to know that.
Justin Bieber’s throwback pics and the included captions are, uh, not subtle.
Since their split, Selena’s been focusing on her career — both music and acting.
She’s also been waging a battle against Lupus, the debilitating autoimmune disease that is ravaging her body.
After a frightening incident this summer in which Selena Gomez was rushed to the hospital with kidney failure, she covertly received a kidney transplant thanks to her friend Francia Raisa’s donation.
Friend and fellow actress Francia Raisa says that giving her kidney transformed her life, and we can imagine so.
Some friends take ride or die to a whole other level.
But, though Selena hasn’t been speaking on this publicly, this isn’t a cure to Lupus by any means. She’s been undergoing serious treatments, including chemo, to treat her Lupus — and it still managed to shut down her kidneys.
This is scary. And, as much as none of us want to think about the possibility, even with modern treatments and virtually unlimited medical resources, Lupus could claim Selena’s life.
That would be a tremendous loss to the world. It would also be a gutting loss to those who know and love Selena.
And that, we think, is why Justin Bieber reached out to her.
As we told you, Justin Bieber saw the kidney transplant news just like the rest of us did, and reached out to Selena’s mother.
Because Selena Gomez has not been in contact with him for a while. It sounds like she needed a detox from him, you know?
With her mother acting as the initial intermediary, Selena agreed to meet, however. Maybe three years is enough time.
TMZ reports that Selena and Justin have reunited. It happened on Sunday.
Justin Bieber showed up at Selena’s home in Studio City where they, and some mutual friends, reportedly hung out until midnight if not later.
For two people who weren’t even talking on the phone until very recently, that’s huge progress.
Where was Selena Gomez’s boyfriend The Weeknd in all of this?
But as much as people like to toss around salacious rumors when someone invites their ex over to their house while their boyfriend is away, TMZ says that The Weeknd knew and was totally cool with it.
That’s not really a surprise.
We know that Selena was looking for a low-drama boyfriend.
In fact, before she started dating The Weeknd, she spoke in an interview about how the kinds of guys that she wished would date her never spoke to her, while the kinds of guys who felt confident enough to hit on her were …
… Well, she didn’t say it, but they were too much like Bieber.
A chill, supportive boyfriend who’s secure in their relationship? That’s what Selena has found in The Weeknd.

Super Bowl LI might not have been such a fun time for the Atlanta Falcons or for people hoping to show their kids a cautionary tale about how cheaters never prosper, but there are some non-Pats fans and non-presidents who enjoyed the game.
Take Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, for example.
After Kim went on vacation without Kanye last month, many took it as an indication that the couple was done for good.
Now, however, it looks like Kimye enjoyed a super reunion on the day of the big game.
Sources say Kim returned to LA over the weekend, and she and Kanye were spotted enjoying a
“They seemed to have fun catching up,” an insider tells People magazine.
“There was no tension between them. Instead, they both seemed very happy.”
The source adds that Kim and Kanye were joined by daughter North and son Saint, and that the entire family seemed to enjoy the festivities.
“They spent several hours at the party,” says the source.
“Everyone seemed happy!”
Granted, “everyone seemed happy” is pretty faint praise, but it’s a step in the right direction.
In case you missed it, Kim and Kanye divorce rumors were flying fast and furious for a couple months there, and it looked like there was real reason to believe these two were on the verge of calling it quits.
In November, Kanye was hospitalized after an emotional breakdown, and his erratic behavior had reportedly put a serious strain on his marriage.
After his release, he and Kim briefly lived in separate homes, in what was reportedly a safety precaution.
For a while, they cohabited in Kanye’s post-hospital hideout, and then Kim jetted off to Costa Rica for a family vacation that had been scheduled before West’s latest round of troubles.
Obviously, it’s hard to gather a whole lot from one Super Bowl party appearance, but it seems that the Wests are at least attempting to make their marriage work.
Even the fact that Kanye has disavowed his support of Donald Trump is being taken as an indication that he’s fighting to make things right with his wife.
(Kim was an ardent Hillary Clinton supporter, and many were shocked when West visited Donald Trump back in December.)
It’s too soon to say what the future hold for these two, but for now, it seems clear that they both want to make their marriage work.
And sometimes that’s enough.
On Teen Mom 2 Season 8 Episode 3, Javi Marroquin finally returned home from deployment, and he and Kailyn Lowry reached a tipping point.
One that we’ve going to go out on a limb and say that you all saw coming a mile away at this juncture if you watch Teen Mom 2 online.
When Teen Mom 2 Season 8 Episode 3 got underway, Kailyn took her two kids to Puerto Rico as Javi’s return from military duty approached.
They’d already filed for divorce (the timeline for this is disputed, and a reason Kailyn is threatening to quit the show), but she was still anxious.
Her first ex, Jo Rivera, offered “no comment” when asked if she sucks at relationships, but said he doesn’t want their dynamic to change.
That will be tough since Kail told the kids flat out that when Javi got back from overseas, he wouldn’t be living together with them anymore.
Lincoln and Isaac took it well, but Isaac was naturally confused about why only Linc would be going over to Javi’s new house sometimes.
Then it became quite clear to everyone involved.
Javi and Kailyn were arguing over car seats within minutes after he returned from half a year away, and they could barely speak politely.
These two? Not the best at communication.
“It’s weird,” she said, stating the obvious.
Teen Mom 2 Season 8 Episode 3 ended with devastating realness for Isaac, who was clearly upset and emotionally reeling from it all.
Whether you’re Team Javi or Team Kail, everyone should be Team Isaac and Team Lincoln, because that’s what it’s really all about.
They’re parents for life, even if they’re not married for life, and we hope they find a way to put their differences aside for the kids’ sake.
It is honestly heartbreaking to watch.
Speaking of single parenting woes:
Just as Leah Messer was preparing to move herself and her three girls into their new home, her town was hit by a devastating flood.
Her ex-husband Jeremy Calvert’s parents’ home was wrecked in the natural disaster, so he returned home to help them deal with it.
That’s when things got contentious.
Out of the blue, he took their daughter to Ohio – where he is living and engaged to Brooke Wehr – and wouldn’t answer Leah’s calls.
“We’re supposed to get another flash flood warning, and she’s in another city, and I know nothing!” Leah said, fuming at Jer’s decision.
Calvert, she said, later “lied his way out” of the issue when confronted about being hard to reach while taking Addie out of the state.
If it’s not one thing, it’s another …
In South Dakota, the pregnant Chelsea Houska was eager to make a big baby announcement, but wanted to wait until after a sonogram.
Even buying a machine to hear the fetal heartbeat at her home whenever she wanted didn’t calm her nerves, but a doctor’s visit did.
After she posted the announcement to social media, she, Cole DeBoer, Aubree and a producer all celebrated the joyful news again.
Things weren’t so joyous in the Happiest Place on Earth, where Jenelle Evans was having so much fun with Jace, she wanted to stay loner.
Too bad Barbara Evans has custody, and other plans; Jenelle’s mom wanted him back with her right away, and that led to a huge melee.
With no resolution in sight.
All you can do with Jenelle is shake your head and hope for the best. You can’t change yourself in the past, but you can going forward.
You can guarantee this argument will continue, given the unusual nature of it (her mom has custody) and the reality star’s volatility.
What’s unclear is how it ends.
Moreover, she has another custody battle (with Nathan Griffith) and is expecting a third child (with David Eason) in a matter of weeks.
Three kids, three dads.
We’re not judging in any way, shape or form, but it’s a simple fact that it’s complicated and she’s got a lot on her plate on her very best day.
We pray for this girl.
