Since Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez broke up earlier this month, we’ve been plagued with suspicious paparazzi photos, bizarre anecdotes involving trespassing and onesies, rumors that they’re back together and having sleepovers, rumors that he’s dating Victoria’s Secret models, rumors that she engineered all this on her own, videos of him singing passive-aggressive Justin Timberlake songs. With neither party really commenting (that song notwithstanding), we don’t know who to believe. Our heads hurt from trying to keep up with where Jelena is at right now.
Imagine, then, how difficult it must be for her! So, what’s Selena’s solution for dealing with all of the rumors surrounding her private life?
E! asked Selena just that on the red carpet for UNICEF’s Snowflake Ball last night. On how she deals with all the relationship rumors, she simply said,
“I don’t. I just smile.”
Yes, even in that photo above the quote. You can see just the barest hint of a grin as she shyly ducks away from photogs and fans. She and Justin broke up only 18 days ago, but since then she’s been at plenty of premieres, galas, and parties looking happier than ever. Hey, it’s an easy way to kill three birds with one stone: Show the haters that you’re doing fine whether you were the dumper or dumpee, avoid paparazzi questions without being labeled as a bitch, and have the record show that you looked great post-break-up.
