Both Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are now confirming the death of Jelena as we know it. The great Nicola Peltz sleepovers are now on with Justin, according to Us Weekly. And Selena? Well, she’s looking for a new boyfriend, according to Harpers BAZAAR. So how much more proof do you need?
For at least a year now, many people have struggled to resurrect the otherwise very dead Jelena in true Walking Dead fashion but to no avail. Jelena loyalists have squeezed every ounce of hope from the possibility that either Selena Gomez or Justin Bieber will breathe life into the moribund love team. There have been about a million sightings of Jelena rising like a phoenix, and yet, each instance would bring an even more depressing degree of disappointment.
The last straw was when Selena Gomez crumpled a die hard Jelena’s “Marry Justin” note on the occasion of one of the “Hands To Myself” singer’s Revival concerts. And still, the Jelena camp has silently remained in denial, refusing to bury its dead.
So perhaps now it’s time to say our final RIP to Jelena, even though there have been so many deaths lately and 2016 is not even over yet. Prince was so rudely taken from us, followed by Christina Grimmie, the 49 martyrs of the Orlando shooting, and Anton Yelchin. It’s the hardest thing to say goodbye, but honestly, we have got to learn to move on after a proper mourning.
Move on — Taylor Swift did after 15 months of bliss with dance artist Calvin Harris, and look where she is now? By all indications, Swift has finally found her true love, according to an Inquisitr story. In Tom Hiddleston, she discovers a lover who will treat her as she wants to be treated. Hiddleston apparently is courting her daily and showering her with all the attention she needs. Alas, Taylor Swift doesn’t have to be a wallflower in a dance hall anymore. Just Tom’s mere presence guarantees Taylor “Dancing Queen” status already.
Jelena multitudes can never say that Selena Gomez never warned them. After all, how many times has she said that she is over with Justin Bieber, and that she has been dating actively, albeit discreetly?
As for Justin Bieber, he is a totally different character altogether compared to Selena Gomez. To illustrate, he dates Hailey Baldwin and Kourtney Kardashian. And then the Biebs has dinner with up and coming Transformers star Nicola — in the same restaurant that he used to frequent with Selena — Gosh, the nerve.
And the next thing you know, Justin Bieber takes his tantrums with him on Instagram showing some form of pictorial jealousy while Selena Gomez is out on a date with another man. So considering all the factors, it would be much easier for Calvin Harris and Taylor Swift to reunite than for Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez to get back together. Simply put, Justin and Selena are the epitomes of Man Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus.
For those of you who think that Selena Gomez has been so quick at dismissing a Justin Bieber “comeback,” let it be said that “The Heart Knows What It Wants.” Gomez’s actions only emphasize how important it is, for a man to make an effort to express himself to the one he loves.
As Madonna outlines in her song:
“Don’t go for second best baby
Put your love to the test
You know, you know, you’ve got to
Make him express how he feels
And maybe then you’ll know your love is real”
Change is very hard to accept. If not, we all would have gone to Mars already as inventor and genius Elon Musk professes. But we must accept change if only for survival’s sake. Most of the time, though, accepting change is for the better. Many people who embrace change often encounter a light at the end of the tunnel, one which they might not have seen had they refused to change direction in their lives.
And so to all the Jelenas out there, it’s time to set Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez free. If by chance their hearts should be reunited in the future, let love find a way.
