Justin Bieber Goes Shirtless On Instagram: For Selena Gomez’s Sake Or Ours?

As the world slips into one giant pair of sweatpants and sobs into a pint of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream over news of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez‘s breakup, JB has taken to dealing with the aftermath on Instagram. Over the weekend — in between dodging questions and performing an acoustic cover of “Cry Me A River” in Boston — the pop star shared some self-portraits including one notable shirtless photo.

Much like any former flame in the Age Of Technology, we’re left to decipher every post-breakup social media post for its hidden meaning (as we’re sure Selena is doing right now). Is this the Biebs’ way of making Sel jealous or of letting the ladies know that Justin Bieber is now officially open for business? Or was the EMAs winner perhaps just, you know, feeling a bit vain? Weigh in with your thoughts below.

The pair are rumored to met up on Sunday night (November 11), so perhaps there’s hope that Jelena isn’t R.I.P. just yet — unless they were just doing the formal Exchanging Of Stuff.
