Selena Gomez Should Stop Pretending Like She’s Embarrassed By Her PDA With Justin Bieber
I'm having trouble buying Selena Gomez being seemingly embarrassed about her and boyfriend Justin Bieber getting caught on the “kiss cam” at a Lakers game last week. On Friday she went on On Air with Ryan Seacrest to complain about how awful it was, saying, “That was probably the most humiliating thing that's happened to me!”
She went on to say that at first it was amusing when the kiss cam showed elderly couples, but “then all of a sudden we’re both looking up and we come on [the screen] and it’s like… it was so awkward. It was so weird. I mean you have to kiss, right?”
Other photos have surfaced of Selena looking majorly bummed at the game, presumably because of the awkward moment. Then came the photo at left, of her visiting Biebs on the set of his “Boyfriend” video. Suddenly Selena doesn't mind if the cameras catch her climbing on her boyfriend.
And honestly, this is nothing we haven't seen before. Since Justin and Selena came out as a couple in early 2011, we've been privy to their every hormone-charged kiss and, as time went on, scantily-clad straddling. They're 19 and 18, of course they're going to be macking every chance they get. But considering that each of them is walking the tightrope of just sexy enough to inspire fantasies in their respective fanbases, these photos do often seem to be staged so that they'll ramp up the fans' hormones.
It does get slightly voyeuristic when we catch Justin and Selena smooching all the time, no matter the time, place, or amount of clothing. After all, who could forget this shot of them basically dry humping on the beach?
Here's the kiss cam photo, which is easily one of the more awkward shots of the two. And maybe that's why Selena's upset—because it didn't look sexy. I'm sure it made the fans go “aww!”, but it also made the two pop stars look more like self-conscious teenagers than self-assured international stars.
