Selena Gomez Ignores Justin Bieber At Met Gala, Thanks To Reese Witherspoon & BFF Vanessa Hudgens

Selena Gomez was able to enjoy the Met Gala and ignore Justin Bieber, thanks to her BFF Vanessa Hudgens. Vanessa was able to keep her gal pal calm in case she faced a run-in with Justin and his growing harem of ladies. Selena enlisted her own group of girl friends to keep her mind off Justin and just party the night away.

An alleged source told Hollywood Life that Hudgens was looking out for Gomez at the Met Ball. Even actress Lily Collins was there to help.

“It helped that Vanessa and Lily (Collins) were there to keep Selena in check. They were like her cheerleaders and just stuck with her the entire night. They weren’t about to let Selena lose her cool with Justin or act too googly eyes with him.”

It didn’t help that Justin was trying to win Selena back by paying her compliments all night. He was even seen shouting on video that he thought Selena “looked gorgeous” that night, that has some fans wondering if he wants to get back with the singer. According to the report, it was Selena’s plans to ignore Justin, so he could want her more.

“Justin played right into her aloofness, which made him want her even more. It was perfect because this is exactly what she wanted.”

Gomez reportedly had too much fun at the Met Gala after party. According to an Us Weekly report, the singer managed to keep her floral headpiece on all night as she downed tequila shots. Gomez also danced with Hudgens, Jessica Alba, Reese Witherspoon, and Kerry Washington. She acknowledged each of the actresses as they cut it down on the dance floor.

Kerry and Selena were reportedly in deep conversation as Kerry’s husband Nnamdi Asomugha looked from afar. Selena and Reese danced along to Lykke Li’s “I Follow Rivers,” as Michael B. Jordan downed more tequila shots with Selena and Vanessa. The lucky actor danced with the two ladies for an hour before Glee Dianna Agron cut in, according to the report.

Gomez appeared happy and calm at the party. It’s not the liquor that was talking. It’s probably because Gomez is reportedly on “cloud nine” after receiving compliments from her ex-boyfriend. Gomez’s plan to ignore him and to party with her girls worked to her advantage.

“She loved all the compliments from Justin. She felt like she was on cloud nine with all of the attention. She promised herself and her friends that she would play it cool with him, and it worked because the more she ignored him and blew him off, the more interested he became.”

Meanwhile, a new report is saying that the real reason Selena is happy is because she’s dating her new music producer. According to a report in In Touch Weekly, she’s been seeing music producer Haze Banga. An alleged source says that Selena is using him to make Justin jealous.

“They started flirting online. One of the reasons she’s hanging out with Haze is to make [her ex, Justin Bieber] jealous.”

Selena and Haze were spotted on a Mexican vacation, but they were probably just there to make music and nothing else. Although it’s not unlike the singer to date her industry friends since she recently broke up with Zedd. Selena just released her new single “I Want You To Know” with the DJ and producer.
