Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber both greeted 2016 by flaunting their sleek physiques. While Jelena lovers may have wished that they were together to see in the New Year with a lip lock, that didn’t happen. However, the year is just starting, and both pop stars have shown that they’re in top shape for 2016.
Selena proved she’s got a yen for Zen by rocking her bikini body in an Instagram post that showcased her fun and fabulous figure during a vacation with friends. After recently getting blasted by body shamers, Gomez made it clear that she’s focusing on staying as healthy and happy as she can by sharing her physique on Instagram, reported Latina.
Selena also expressed her appreciation to her fans in one of her captions.
“I am so grateful for the people I’ve met this year but more importantly for the people who have been consistent and by my side through thick and thin,” wrote Gomez. “That’d be YOU!”
It’s a comeback for Selena after having shared that bikini photo in 2015 that got blasted by haters who shamed her for her weight gain. Gomez revealed that she had never before experienced body-shaming.
However, now Selena is reviving her career, from an album to chart-soaring singles, and Gomez made it clear that she’s grateful to her fans.
“Thank you for another year! Love you guys!” emphasized Selena.
As for how it’s going with Gomez when it comes to romance, some hints came at the end of 2015 that she and the Biebs were getting back together. And for celebrity romance watchers, it got particularly confusing because he also was reported to be in a hot hook-up with Kourtney Kardashian, as the Inquisitr reported.
When the 21-year-old pop idol got together with 36-year-old Kourtney, fans were baffled about the rebound after his passionate romance with Selena and her nine years (and three kids) with Scott Disick. But reasons emerged ranging from a push by matriarch Kris Jenner (who even reportedly thought it would make a ratings-worthy plot line for Keeping Up With The Kardashians) to a desire to make Gomez jealous, and last but not least: a longing for both the Biebs and Kourtney to have fun.
But now it seems that Kardashian has been discarded (sorry, Kourtney) and a new romance with Hailey Baldwin is heating up. However, a source told Hollywood Life that the purpose of that PDA that went public is also partly to make Selena jealous.
In addition, Hollywood Life‘s insider reports that he wants to make it clear to the world (including Gomez) that he’s seeking to move on. But did he share the PDA just to make Selena jealous?
“He is going to do what he wants to do and Selena can deal with it the way she deals with it,” added the insider.
As for what Justin did for New Year’s Eve, he went shirtless during a fabulous bash, with Leonardo DiCaprio as the host, reported Billboard.
And he made them all into Beliebers by performing toward midnight and enjoying lots of kisses from gorgeous blondes. Although the pop idol wore a black shirt at the beginning of the New Year’s Eve celebration, he lost his attire partway through the party, as he stirred them up asking a series of questions.
“Who is representing New York? Who wants to have a good new year?” questioned the pop idol. “Who has a good year resolution? Who was once not a Belieber, and is now?”
But that wasn’t all for the New Year, as Justin also was reportedly was spotted locking lips with Hailey at a New Year’s Eve party, reported the Daily Mail.
She’s the daughter of Stephen Baldwin, and 200 of their pals watched them kiss.
Despite all that evidence, both have dismissed reports that they are hooking up, leaving hope for both Selena Gomez and Kourtney Kardashian. Hollywood Take cited quotes from Bieber and Baldwin denying any romance.
“We’re just friends. I’ve known him for a very long time, since I was about 13,” she explained. “He’s just going through a time in his life where he’s transitioning in a really positive way and he needs good people around him. And I’m trying to be a good friend and be there for him and support him.”
And he agreed, describing her as “one of my best friends in the entire world.”
