Selena Gomez, the rumored girlfriend of Justin Bieber, appeared Tuesday morning on the daytime syndicated talk show The Ellen Degeneres Show where she talked about her beau, Justin Bieber. In particular, Degeneres tried to have her admit the obvious that she is indeed dating the teenage popstar, however, she went just short of admitting it.
Degeneres first showed a video clip of Gomez’ last appearance on her show, where she simply stated the Bieber is “little” and that he was simply like her “little brother” at the time, adding that it was “weird” to her. After the clip aired, Gomez put her head down, laughed and said, “don’t take me to jail,” seemingly admitting that the two are more than a brother-sister pairing these days, especially after they’ve been spotted in recent photos visibly holding hands (view those photos here).
Degeneres pressed, “He’s like your little brother? What do you have to say now?” Gomez responded simply with, “I don’t know. I don’t know”. Degeneres added, “Well, you were trying to hide it still, right? But now you’ve made it public. Now, you went to the Vanity Fair party and made me a fool.” Gomez responded with, “No, I really didn’t!”
“I promise you I didn’t. He’s just sweet,” Gomez said. Degeneres added, “He is. He’s sweet as can be. But he’s not like your little brother, is he? No, he’s not. And he’s a fantastic guy. You can’t try to hide that forever. I know you all were sneaking around but that’s crazy. You’re both huge stars and you can’t hide from us.”
The interview between the two ended with Degeneres saying, “No, you didn’t blatantly lie. A little brother is not someone you want to date.” Gomez’ response? “Well, no. That would be weird.”
