Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber may be the cutest couple in Hollywood, but are they really dating? Ellen DeGeneres put Selena on the spot during a guest appearance that will air today (Mar. 22). Selena squirmed mightily.
The 18-year-old Disney star is still super-defensive about her relationship with Justin, 17. She seemed embarrassed after Ellen pointed out that she said during a Sept. 22 appearance that he was ” like my little brother.”
“He’s like your little brother? What do you have to say now?” Ellen said.
“I don’t know. I don’t know,” Selena replied.
“Well, you were trying to hide it still, right? But now you’ve made it public,” said Ellen prodding more.
“You went to the Vanity Fair [Oscar night] party [together] and made me a fool.”
“No, I really didn’t,” Gomez said giggling.
“Yes, you did!!” counters DeGeneres
“I promise you, I didn’t,” insists Gomez. “He’s just sweet.”
“He’s sweet as can be, but he’s not like your little brother, is he? No, he’s not. And he’s a fantastic guy,” Ellen added.
“You can’t try to hide that forever. I know you all were sneaking around but that’s crazy. You’re both huge stars, and you can’t hide from us!”
Bieber and Gomez were caught kissing on video after the Oscars, and photos surfaced before that showing the two cuddling on a yacht in tony St. Lucia.
