First they were sitting together and then they weren't. And now it seems Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are once again sitting together at the 2012 American Music Awards. Fans probably won't know for sure if they are or aren't until they see the award show on November 18th, but as it stands right now, the seating arrangement appears to be a major source of confusion.
According to a report from Hollywood Life, an American Music Awards source says the seating arrangement will stay put. Justin and Selena will be seated side by sideÂ—that is, if Selena shows.
"If Selena decides to attend The American Music Awards, we will have her sit next to Justin. We don't want their breakup to be a distraction to the show, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary. If Justin and Selena sit together, it will prove that if nothing else the two are still close friends... and possibly back together," the source says.
How will the two feel if forced to sit next to each other?
"We obviously can't force anyone to sit where they don't want to sit, but never in the history of The American Music Awards has a talent requested to sit in another spot," the source says.
The source goes so far as to say that sitting together at the AMAs might even help the two reconcile. That's a bit far-fetched, don't you think?
"We are hoping that the show will somehow help bring them back together, at least for a fun-filled night."
Does any of this make you wonder if Justin and Selena's break up is staged? Is it designed to drum up his Believe concert ticket sales, record sales, or interest in Selena's upcoming TV movie Wizards of Waverly Place? Something about this whole situation just rings of convenience, but no one has come right out and said it yet.
Of course, people wondered the same thing about Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart when she cheated on him with her Snow White and the Huntsman director. They wondered if it was all staged so a big reconciliation could take place in time for the Breaking Dawn Part 2 premiere. It doesn't seem as though anything big is coming up for either Justin Bieber or Selena Gomez, however. His tour is already pretty much sold out and his album is already released. It seems like an awfully complicated scenario to stage for promotion for a made-for-TV movie.
It would be great to see a reconciliation between Justin and Selena, and he has reportedly said he isn't giving up just yet. Do you think they'll both wind up at the 2012 American Music Awards, and if so, might it make a difference in their relationship status?
