Why Selena didn’t want to keep The Weeknd on the DL
Thereâ€™s a weird thing that happens when a celebrity starts dating somebody new.
Magically, we, the public, become just like our parents acted when we were teenagers bringing home somebody new. Weâ€™re either way too enthusiastic and want to know everything, or we lean back in our armchairs and loudly declare this relationship isnâ€™t going to last. But either way, weâ€™re not cool about it.
No wonder celebs want to hide their relationships from us as long as possible, right?
But at some point, the truth has to come out, and Selena Gomez recently explained why she decided to stop dating The Weeknd on the DL and go public.
â€œItâ€™s really hard when I would want to spend so much time hiding things. Itâ€™s too much pressure, and I think everyone gets over everything eventually,â€ Selena explained to Ryan Seacrest on his show â€œOn the Air With Ryan Seacrest.â€
By â€œeveryoneâ€ getting over â€œeverything eventually,â€ itâ€™s likely Selena meant both Bella Hadid and Justin Bieber. Especially Justin, who spent all of Valentineâ€™s Day whining about how he was single and a few weeks later was walking around LA looking like he peed himself.
But, Selena has a point. Time heals all wounds, even when those wounds afflict the fragile egos of one of the most famous fuckboys in all the world.
â€œI just want to be happy,â€ Selena continued. â€œIf thatâ€™s me just being myself, then I donâ€™t really care.â€
â€œObviously sheâ€™s referring to The Weeknd,â€ Ryan Seacrest added, seeing as Selena managed to answer a question about why they took their relationship public without mentioning her boyfriendâ€™s name.
But Selena wasnâ€™t having that â€œThe Weekndâ€ crap.
â€œAbel,â€ she corrected him, before adding that hearing him called The Weeknd is â€œso weird.â€
Girl, we feel you.
Your boyfriendâ€™s stage name is really weird and we donâ€™t like using it either.
Maybe next time you get interviewed you can explain to us how you found it within yourself to overlook that very big flaw of his.
