Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber have been linked on and off for years and while they are believed to be off at the current moment, they were recently linked to one another due to their social media activity.
Earlier this year, Bieber shared a photo of himself and Selena Gomez kissing in a pool, and a short time later, the sweet pic became the most liked photo on Instagram. Now, however, a new photo has taken the title -- and it's one of Selena Gomez's latest posts.
On July 13, the New York Daily News announced the news to readers, revealing Selena Gomez had beaten her ex-boyfriend's photo with a photo of her own, which featured a close-up of her sipping out of a Coca Cola bottle along with the lyrics from her song "Me & The Rhythm" on the drink's label.
"When your lyrics are on the bottle," Selena Gomez captioned the shot, which she shared with fans two weeks ago.

After the "Company" singer shared the throwback photo of himself and Selena Gomez in March, Gomez liked the photo and added the caption, "Perfect." Then, days later, she was photographed in the audience at his Purpose Tour show in Los Angeles.
At the time, rumors were in full swing in regard to the former couple's possible reconciliation, but the following month, it was revealed that the 22-year-old had continued to hook up with Kourtney Kardashian, 37, whom he's been linked to since last October.
Since then, Selena Gomez hasn't been seen with her ex-boyfriend at all, nor have they interacted with one another on social media, and a source claimed last month that Gomez was happy to have him out of her mind -- at least for the time being.
"[Selena Gomez] is busy and enjoying being on [her Revival World Tour], she loves not having to miss [him], she loves not having to be bored and text [him] to pass the time. She loves that she doesn't have to keep tabs on him because she would always watch out for what he was doing while she was not working," a source told Hollywood Life. "She loves being busy and enjoying tour life and just being completely out of Justin's radar. It has been a pretty nice and therapeutic."
Selena Gomez has been on tour since earlier this year and recently played a show in Quebec City.

"There is so much s**t going on in the world... Sometimes you wake up and you don't have it in you. You try and get up. But I wake up and I worship," Selena Gomez told her audience before singing her latest single, "Kill 'Em With Kindness," according to a report by The Mirror on July 12.
Selena Gomez also addressed her own personal struggles, explaining, "The older we get, the more insecure we get. It's backward. I got to show my worst to you. All the hard times that I have had."
Following her show in Canada, which took place two nights ago, Selena Gomez is scheduled to perform several shows in Asia beginning on July 23.
