SXSW 2014: Justin Bieber Dedicates Surprise “As Long As You Love Me” Performance To Selena Gomez

Surprise, Austin — indie rock god Justin Bieber showed up for a face-melting performance of his jangle-pop jam “As Long As You Love Me” at Scooter Braun‘s Sunday Funday SXSW showcase. Actually, he led things off with the rap from “Boyfriend” — yep, the “swag, swag, swagoo” bit — before dedicating “As Long As You Love Me” to his “baby.” And given that Bieber spent Friday in Texas getting cozy in public with Selena Gomez (they really are “on” again, aren’t they), we’ll just go out on a limb and say he was implying the song was going out to her.

Give the least likely SXSW performance of the year a watch above. It’s guaranteed to be a better viewing experience than watching Bieber’s deposition tape, at least. More »

Selena Gomez Reunites With Justin Bieber In Texas. Is Jelena Back On?

Robin Thicke should stop dedicating songs to estranged wife Paula Patton at concerts and make a collage of her prettiest red carpet snaps and put it on Instagram. It sure did the trick for Justin Bieber. Less than a week after his now infamous ‘elegant princess’ post, the Canadian superstar appears to have won Selena Gomez back.

The lovebirds were snapped in Hidalgo, Texas (where Selena is performing this weekend) by paparazzi while they hung out at Starbucks. The Stars Dance diva later posted a picture with a Starbucks coffee on her Instagram. Who knows — maybe they were both craving caffeine and ended up at the same store? Yeah, not very likely. More »

Justin Bieber Calls Selena Gomez The “Most Elegant Princess In The World”

Justin Bieber wants his girl back. The 20-year-old made his intentions clear this morning (March 3) by updating his Instagram with a picture of Selena Gomez at an Oscars party with the caption: “most elegant princess in the world.” That’s actually really sweet, right?

It’s been a tough year for the Canadian superstar. Justin has been arrested multiple times and (somewhat impressively, let’s be honest) hotboxed a private jet with marijuana fumes. Maybe the resulting backlash is finally starting to sink in and he wants to make things right — starting with Selena. Either that or he just thought she looked hot and posted her picture. See his Insta-update after the jump. More »

Selena Gomez Thanks Fans “For The Unconditional Love And Cyber Hugs”

Selena Gomez looks happy and healthy in a new Instagram post, and she used the forum to thank her fans for their support during this rough patch, which included a quick rehab stint. “I’ve done everything I could to the best of my ability,” she wrote, without specifically mentioning rehab. “Thank you for the unconditional love and cyber hugs. You inspire me.”

While Gomez hasn’t revealed any details of her treatment, you’ll notice in the photo she’s holding what appears to be a glass of red wine, which supports her rep’s statement that she was getting treatment unrelated to substance abuse. Billboard spoke to a source saying she’s merely “burnt out after a relentless year of back-to-back films, concerts, TV, touring and all the promotional work that goes along with it.”

Better that she get some peace of mind than become another casualty of the child-star meat grinder. See her Instagram post below. More »

Call it the Curse Of The Bieber. Selena Gomez quietly completed a two-week stint in rehab last month, reportedly for “emotional issues.” A rep for the star confirmed to RadarOnline that “Selena voluntarily spent time at [The Meadows recovery facility in Arizona] but not for substance abuse.” Predictably, though, rumors are flying that the real reason for her treatment related to alcohol and prescription pill abuse. Meanwhile, TMZ claims Gomez is blaming Bieber for her descent.  More »

Selena Gomez Performs New Music With Ben Kweller At ‘Rudderless’ After Party: Watch

Selena Gomez cancelled her Stars Dance tour to take stock of her life but, happily, seems to have found herself — at the Sundance film festival in Utah, to be exact. Sel appears in William H. Macy‘s directorial debut (a musical called Rudderless), which screened at the prestigious event. She attended the premiere and even blessed the after-party with an acoustic set.

The “Slow Down” diva performed a couple of songs with singer/songwriter Ben Kweller. A stripped back rendition of summer smash “Come & Get It” delighted guests but the highlight was a new folk track — potentially from the film’s soundtrack — that shows the 21-year-old in a completely different light. See some fan-assembled footage from Selena’s set after the jump. More »

Selena Gomez Covers ‘Seventeen’ Magazine Thrice, Talks Lorde, Katy Perry & Being Powerful: 7 Pics

Selena Gomez takes over the March issue of Seventeen magazine — posing for three different covers. The “Slow Down” diva rocks a different colored t-shirt for each cover emblazoned with words like “dream”, “brave” and “confident”. As usual, Sel is pushing a feel-good message and manages to look absolutely adorable in the process.

As for the cover story, the 21-year-old opens up about female pop stars and her inferiority complex. Selena expresses her support for Lorde, who had some unkind things to say about “Come & Get It”, saying: “I’m going to support her whether she likes me or not because I think she’s doing great things.” Sel also remains hopeful that their feud will end. “Someday I will see her and we’ll be cool.” More »
