Selena Gomez was pressed by Ellen DeGeneres for answers about her then budding relationship with Justin Bieber. Gomez wasn’t too forthcoming then so, when she return to Ellen’s show on Tuesday she was a little more open about Bieber.
“He’s little. He’s like my little brother,” said Gomez, 18, about Bieber,17.
Ellen DeGeneres asked Gomez again, “He’s like your little brother? … What do you have to say now?”
“I don’t know. I don’t know,” replied Gomez.
“Well,” continued DeGeneres, “you were trying to hide it still, right? But now you’ve made it public.”
DeGeneres went on to say, “You went to the Vanity Fair [Oscar night] party [together] and made me a fool.”
DeGeneres by saying the following with a laugh: “No, I really didn’t.”
“Yes, you did!!” countered DeGeneres
“I promise you, I didn’t,” said Gomez. “He’s just sweet.”
“He is,” agreed DeGeneres. “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. You can’t try to hide that forever.”
Adds DeGeneres: “I know you all were sneaking around but that’s crazy. You’re both huge stars, and you can’t hide from us.”
“I didn’t lie to you, said Gomez. ” I didn’t, though. I’ll say that.”
“No, you didn’t blatantly lie. A little brother is not someone you want to date.”
“Well, no,” concedes Gomez. “That would be weird.”
At the end of the interview Ellen gave Selena a pillow to take on tour with her. The pillow f course had a picture of Justin Bieber on it.
