Selena Gomez Weighs in on Ariana Grande & Pete Davidson’s Quick Engagement
Selena Gomez has finally weighed in on some recent engagement news, but it may not be the one you were hoping for. Fans have been anxiously waiting for the “Back to You” singer to publicly comment on her former on-again, off-again boyfriend Justin Bieber’s proposal to Hailey Baldwin last weekend, but she's remained pretty tight-lipped about the whole thing. She did, however, recently react to another celebrity couple's surprise engagement: Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson’s!
In an interview with Clevver, the interviewer asked Selena what her Hotel Transylvania 3 character Mavis might say about the pair's engagement. At first, she responded with a laugh and a shrug, but with a little help from her co-star Andy Sandberg, she revealed what she really thought about their whirlwind romance. “I honestly don't know what Mavis would say, but I would say that it's amazing and beautiful,” Selena replied, sounding very sincere in her answer.
Watch the interview and Selena's comments below!
Like we mentioned, Selena has not yet offered her thoughts on Justin and Hailey's engagement, but it's important to note that she doesn't have to – and she especially doesn't have to tell the world about what might be a very difficult time for her. Whether she's genuinely happy for Justin or upset by this quickie marriage proposal, that's between her and whomever she wants to share her truth with. She did step out wearing a cryptic message two days after the news broke, though. She was spotted in New York City on Tuesday, July 10, wearing a T-shirt that said “Only the Strong Survive” on its front pocket.
Justin and Selena dated from 2011 to 2014 but then rekindled their romance in November 2017. At the time, fans were beyond excited at the possibility that they might make it work this time around. However, that was short-lived because Jelena eventually called it quits again in March of this year. We never really got the full story as to what went wrong in the relationship, but it definitely seemed over for good. Then, Justin was spotted with Hailey, someone he'd also previously dated, and the rest is pretty much history.
An insider told E! News that Selena “doesn’t care” about Justin anymore. “Selena was surprised an engagement happened this quickly but not surprised Justin would do something like this knowing who he is.” “At the end of the day though she doesn't really care,” the source said. “Selena is totally over him. She had tried again to make it work that last time and it didn't work out.”
Why should Selena care, anyway? She has so much to look forward to! 13 Reasons Why got picked up for a third season, she's working on a new album, and honestly, she seems to be living her best life right now. On top of that, Selena also teased a new collaboration with a female musician in her interview with Clevver. Though she wouldn't say who it was or what the name of the song is, we can't help but wonder who she's referring to. Is it Taylor Swift? We're keeping our fingers crossed.
