Justin Bieber Returns To The Studio & Selena Gomez

Typically, a new year inspires people to change (or try, at least). Instead, Justin Bieber returned to a few familiar places.

He posed for Instagram next to Kid Cudi in the studio (above), following earlier claims that he plans to retire. (Toronto producer Douglas Romanow even posted a similar snapshot just days prior, as proof that his retirement rumors are “greatly exaggerated.”) Then for another photo, he stares straight ahead as ex-girlfriend (and all-around Idolator favorite) Selena Gomez wraps her arms around him. The caption? “Love the way you look at me.” The former couple last reunited over the summer, although among interviews and songs where they talk of moving on.

See Bieber and Gomez cuddle for Instagram — yes, again — after the jump.
