Now that Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are no longer a couple, the question on everybody's lips and electronic devices is: "What happened?" Well, there are answers to that too, and a few of them have already surfaced. The so-called official reason for the split was their busy schedules. Right. Has there ever been a time in the last two years when Biebs and Selena weren't busy? Plus, there are two great new inventions nowadays called the phone and the airplane. There are also reports that Jelena's demise might have resulted from Robert Pattinson/Kristen Stewart-type "trust issues." That's possible. There was that whole Victoria's Secret model Barbara Palvin thing. But Justin and Selena supposedly split a week ago when Palvin was just an anonymous Belieber in a push up bra, panties, and wings. Now, new reports are saying Jelena's split was a question of maturity. Apparently JB has too little and Selena has too much. Sounds like they were doomed from the start.
"She is way too mature for him," revealed the insider. "He wants to have fun and be young and wants her around all the time and she wants to be like his mom and not go out and wants to actually settle with someone and she is boring!"
Well, there you have it. Although that doesn't exactly ring true either. It's hard to believe it took these two almost two years to realize they are "immature" and "boring." Besides, what teenager isn't immature? And Selena Gomez has often said in interviews that she knew she probably wouldn't marry the person she was with at age eighteen. And yet, now she suddenly wants to "actually settle with someone?" There has to be more to this story. Or not.
Perhaps Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez's romance has simply run its course. Maybe it was time for them to part because they just weren't feeling it anymore. Relationships have an annoying habit of mutatingÂ—erÂ—changing. It happens. Better that it happened now rather than ten years and three kids from now.
Oh well, to paraphrase Dorothy Parker, "the moon's gone dim/the sky's turned black/" Jelena's kaput/but they may be back.
