Justin Bieber Hits Istanbul, Selena Gomez Rumors Reliably Rejected
When Justin Bieber sang “All Around the World,” he meant it.
The Canadian superstar has hit Istanbul ahead of a concert in the capital on May 2.
Hot on the heels of his Moscow concert where the 19-year-old made a little girl’s night when he invited her onstage, it’s now Turkey’s turn to get the Believe world tour treatment.
“Turkey what’s good,” the singer asked the virtual world in an Instagram as he touched down in a private jet.
Reportedly, around 35 hyperventilating fans broke down in tears as they tried to catch a glimpse of Bieber exiting Sabiha Gökçen airport.
And what an exit.
Dressed in his new favorite attire, the onesie, the teen star ran a gauntlet of the usual paparazzi as he hid his face and ran to a waiting van.
It was pure Mission Impossible.
And then some.
Meanwhile, another kind of mayhem has now been decisively neutered.
A recent story in Star claimed that Pastor Judah Smith — who is a friend of the “Boyfriend” singer — stepped into the breach to convince Gomez to fly to Oslo on April 18.
The reason? The Spring Breakers actress was “brought in by Justin’s mentor and best friend, Pastor Judah Smith to stop [Bieber] from falling apart.”
“Pastor Judah pleaded with Selena to fly to Norway,” the Star’s ‘insider’ added. “She’s the only person who can stop Justin from having a breakdown.”
The alleged source continued: “He’s lost his way. He needs her more than ever, and she wants to at least be friends again.”
Gossip Cop has since spoken to a reliable and — actual — source connected to either Bieber and Gomez and/or their reps. The outlet was told in no uncertain terms that the idea that Gomez is some sort of human elastoplast is “ludicrous” and “false.”
Yet again, the fact that there is even a need to rebut an evidently, false tabloid story — [see also] Bieber’s Elizabeth Arden photo shoot “temper tantrum” and Gomez friends “crisis talks” stories — reveals an endemic willingness of many entertainment outlets to blindly repeat spurious content.
Bieber’s undeniably incendiary Instagram of him and Gomez continues to draw debate, some of which looks at the couple’s possible reasons for going public in the way they did, from genuinely, interesting angles.
Following Gomez and Bieber’s Best Artist wins at this year’s Radio Disney Music Awards, the former Wizards of Waverly Place star recently dropped a still and a sensuous teaser for her upcoming full video for new single “Come and Get It.”
As for Bieber, Istanbul’s Technical University’s sports arena awaits. Tickets for the concert sold out a month ago and a huge fan turn out is expected.
