It seems like just yesterday that Selena Gomez was taking swipes at Justin Bieber over his new girlfriend on Instagram. Following that incident, Gomez went on 90-day social media break, and then to rehab. Now, a feud between Bieber and Gomez’s new boyfriend is brewing, and it seems unlikely that it will end in self-care and reflection.
The Weeknd, Gomez’s new love, performed at the Grammys on Sunday while Justin Bieber was getting sushi. TMZ reports that Bieber has told friends he doesn’t think the Grammys are relevant to young singers. Despite the fact that it feels like I’ve been forced to acknowledge Justin Bieber’s presence my entire life, he is still technically a young singer and is literally five years younger than Selena's new boo.
Teen Vogue reports that Bieber mentioned The Weeknd on Instagram in which an off-camera voice asks, “Favorite song at the moment?” Bieber replies, “'Starboy,' by The Weeknd," then laughs wildly to indicate it’s a joke. Ha ha.
BET reports that The Weeknd is not above similar pettiness, and has included a line about the Bieb on Nav's new song "Some Way," which he is featured on. He sings, “I think your girl, think your girl, fell in love with me/She say my f**k and my tongue game a remedy."
Welp, it definitely looks like this could escalate sooner than later. I’d say both these guys should take a page from Selena Gomez’s playbook and disconnect for a bit, but she just got out of a boob and butt fueled feud with Bella Hadid, so I guess no one ever learns.
