Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have once again steamed up the Internet with an Instagram.
In it, the 19-year-old, wearing his best Scooby-Doo “Who me?” expression sits beside a scarlet lipped and what can only be described as a come-hither, Gomez, 20.
Of course it is.
In addition, the Canadian’s longtime friend and videographer Alfredo Flores posted an Independence Day Instagram video containing a just long enough glimpse of Gomez that strongly suggested she was also at Chez Bieber.
Bieber’s latest social media reveal comes after an avalanche of Instagrams and tweets posted by some of his buddies, including rappers Lil Twist and Lil Za, showed festive scenes of a July 4 party at the “Boyfriend” singer’s Calabasas, Calif., house.
There’s also this:
Given that Lil Twist posted a picture of himself and Gomez (or a doppelanger) at 02:11 am on July 5, are we to assume the “Come and Get It” songstress….
… stayed over?
Suffice it to say, this latest Instagram has caused something of a stir in the Belieber badlands.
Over at Bieber’s Instagram page under said picture, which at the time of posting this has now been ‘Liked’ or sobbed over 760,000 (plus) times, a disorderly queue of commenters gathered.
One furious user, going by the name of @Kimbieberly, raged:
“Caption is unnecessary and irrelevant. you told us to focus on the music but you post this. don’t complain when the fanbase is losing their heads.”
Another, named @bomb_dotcom, called for calm: “Guys shut up it’s his life not yours.”
“It was only a matter of time..” observed another sage.
One confused fan simply asked: “Hey @justinbieber is this a clue for #heartbreaker.”
“Heartbreaker” is the name of Bieber’s impending musical opus, and according to his manager Scooter Braun, it’s going to change life on earth as we know it.
O.K., he didn’t actually say that, but near enough. One of the things Braun did say — with good reason — was: “We’re hoping the witch hunt [is] gonna end when he really just speaks for himself in the music.”
He said other things too, but at this point I really think we should focus on the burning question.
Are Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez back on?
They’re clearly friends, single, good-looking, and were reportedly spotted out together at a movie-night last week. If we’re laying bets, it’s at least 50/50.
But even if we don’t know that answer yet, there is one thing I think we all know.
Right now, a hypothetical Taylor Swift gif could freeze Hades.
