Justin Bieber Shocks With Responses To Selena Gomez, Tinder Dating & Love Life Questions
Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have fascinated Jelena fans with their on again, off again romantic relationship. With Bieber recently split from Sofia Richie and Gomez returning to the public spotlight after a hiatus, is there any chance of a reunion? Or is Justin currently seeking a new gal pal with whom to canoodle, perhaps by using the Tinder dating app? Bieber just answered those questions with some unexpected answers in two new interviews.

Five years ago, Justin and Selena broke up, but continued to keep their followers in suspense with intrigue, including that Instagram war of words over the summer, pointed out Vanity Fair.
But although it’s been years since their last public date, the intrigue of Jelena continues. Gomez mentioned her “same old love” in August, and, as the Inquisitr reported, Selena also hinted at her relationship with the Biebs during her American Music Awards speech, referencing her 2014 performance of “The Heart Wants What It Wants” (that song is viewed as an “ode” to her relationship with Bieber).
Now it’s Justin who is in the spotlight when it comes to the status of his relationship with Gomez. In a video that quickly went viral on social media, a paparazzo bluntly questions Bieber.
“Justin are you in love with Selena?”
The Biebs surprised with a response that made it clear he’s matured and learned how to parry those probing questions about Gomez.
Bieber’s reported responses range from “What kind of question is that?” to “Is that a question,” but the meaning is clear. In contrast to Justin’s occasional angry outbursts of the past, he’s learned that staying calm and evading a blunt answer is sometimes the best response.
But the interrogation of the Biebs when it comes to his love life doesn’t stop there. Justin and Ellen DeGeneres have a special bond, and the talk show host didn’t hesitate to question her pal about everything from his love life status to his use of the Tinder dating app.
When Bieber appeared on her show, Ellen asked him if he had ever been on Tinder.
“I haven’t,” answered the 22-year-old.
“No dating app ever?” asked the stunned talk show host.
“Nope, never,” reassured the prince of pop.
If that answer sounds familiar, go back to October 2015, when Selena Gomez responded to a similar question.
“I would never go on Tinder!” exclaimed Selena. “I think it would scare me. I go on dates.”

So with Justin (and his ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez) not using Tinder, is he involved with anyone special? DeGeneres didn’t hesitate to ask the Biebs to dish on his romantic relationship status, noted MTV News.
Given that this was Bieber’s 26th appearance on The Ellen Show, Ellen didn’t waste much time in leading up to the key question.
“Who are you dating?” she asked.
Justin sought to cut down on the speculation in his response.
“I’m not dating anybody.”
Is he looking for love? Not according to Bieber, who shared that he is not seeking a gal pal right now, but planning to extend his Purpose tour. And although a girlfriend has not (yet) signed up to join him on his tour of stadiums throughout North America next summer, Justin did note that his dog faithfully accompanies him.

While Bieber is single but not yet ready to mingle, E News noted that he also shared life while he’s traveling alone isn’t always easy.
“That’s probably the hardest thing [about the tour]—just being alone all the time.”
In addition to his dog Esther, however, Justin’s younger brother sometimes visits him. Bieber’s future tour plans include a North American stadium tour in August 2017, set to launch at the Rose Bowl stadium in California and end in Toronto in September.
E News noted that Justin’s recent months during his tour have “been marred by the singer’s outbursts, which have included lashing out at his fans about their noise.” However, he issued an apology and sought to explain in a tweet, which was subsequently deleted.
“People tend to want to shut you down. What I mean by that is… people try to twist things, some people don’t want to listen,” wrote Bieber. “But I simply feel like, if I didn’t use this platform to say how I truly feel, and if I didn’t use this platform to be the man that I know I am, and speak from what’s in my heart, then I’m doing myself injustice, and I’m not doing anybody in this audience any justice.”
