After weeks of reports, rumors, and bike-riding dates, we finally have real confirmation that Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber are back on. Are you ready for this? The two love birds were caught kissing in public last night. Yup. This is the moment all “Jelena” shippers have been waiting for. And for everyone else, well, it’s 2017. This is what happens in 2017: SelGo ends things with The Weeknd, arguably the hottest man in the northern hemisphere, and starts things back up with the guy who once walked around barefoot in Boston.
TMZ has the photo, which shows a short-haired Gomez grabbing Bieber’s face and planting a smooch on him. Bieber is still wearing his hockey gear, so it’s safe to say he was a sweaty mess in this pic—but Gomez doesn’t care. True love isn’t affected by athletic perspiration. Remember the time she wore his used jersey after a game? She clearly loves Athlete Bieber, which is something I, a sports hater, will never understand.
We don’t want to keep you waiting, so head on over to TMZ to see the spontaneous make-out session for yourself. They just can’t keep their hands to themselves! I mean, they could, but why would they want to? (I’ll see myself out.)
And here’s a semiblurry photo of the back of their heads from the same evening:
News that Gomez and Bieber were rekindling their flame came just hours after we learned about her breakup with The Weeknd. Their participation in the Hillsong Church is apparently what brought them back together. The two have been spotted hanging out, holding hands, and cuddling, but this is the first kiss on record for “Jelena 3.0.” It’s basically 2011 again, except Bieber ditched the skater-boy swoop hair and Gomez has a song called “Fetish.”
Gomez and Bieber haven’t commented on their relationship status yet, but you know what they say: A picture’s worth a thousand words. Especially if there’s PDA in it.
