I was gearing up to write this Selena Gomez post last night with these photos in my mind. I thought, “Wow! She looks sexy but not sleazy here.” The pictures are from a Flaunt magazine event a few weeks ago that got lost in the holiday shuffle. Selena looks great. I was so swayed by these pictures that I was prepared to laugh off a big story in this week’s Enquirer about how Selena’s been taking Miley Cyrus’ street drug of choice, Molly.
Then I saw the really bad news. TMZ has photos of Selena and Justin Bieber riding segways together near his home in Calabasas. She took his swaggy ass back after all of brothel stuff and other gross Bieber doings. What the hell, Selena? Now I might believe anything. Here’s that story from the Enquirer:
Squeaky-clean starlet Selena Gomez suffered a bizarre public meltdown, suddenly canced an international tour and crashed her SUV in single vehicle accident — leaving fans wondering what has happened to the former Disney darling.
Now, in a blockbuster Enquirer exclusive, a close source reveals that the 21-year-old singer/actress secretly used drugs!
Selena, who reportedly dumped her boyfriend Justin Bieber over his alleged drug use — has been seen taking the street drug “Molly.”
The bombshell was delivered by the source — concerned that Selena is spiraling out of control — who gives the Enquirer a first hand eyewitness account of the young entertainer using Molly at a party over the summer.
Selena also attended a recent 12-step meeting with her close friend Demi Lovato, who did a rehab stint in 2010, although Selena’s representative said she was there only to support Demi.
“I don’t know whether Justin Bieber pushed her to take Molly or whether she started using it through peer pressure,” said the source, who has passed a polygraph test, told the Enquirer in a world exclusive interview. Nonetheless, “Selena Gomez is wisely trying to help herself stay off Molly.
Molly is an illegal stimulant made from the main chemical in the so-called “sex drug” Ecstasy. But experts say Molly — which is often taken in powdered form — is more potent and can cause seizures, hypothermia, heart problems, comas and even death. It can also lead to more serious problems like cocaine and heroin addiction.
Despite the dangers of the drug, Selena used Molly at a private house party in the Hollywood Hills this past summer, according to source. “Justin was at the same party, but I didn’t see him using drugs that night,” the source told the Enquirer.
“I was more focused on Selena because, up to that point, I didn’t know she took drugs. But she clearly knew what she was doing. This certainly wasn’t her first time ‘rolling’ (the term Molly users refer to getting high).”
Although Selena’s representative denied that she ever used Molly, the source said: “She ingested less than agram of the drug in a bottle of water, which is one of the most common ways of doing it. She was also drinking. I saw champagne, whisky and Grey Goose (vodka) at the party.”
Selena had previously been spotted hanging around with self-confessed cocaine-abuser Donatella Versace at Fashion Week in Milan, Italy.

I don’t know whether this story is true, but it’s somewhat believable and does steadily chip away at Selena’s good-girl image. Frankly I am flabbergasted at seeing Selena with Justin again and might believe anything about her today. She thought she was out, and he pulled her back in. Bieber has some Godfather-grade pull. What a shame.
In other Selena news, there’s some talk of her tour cancellation. Selena’s team hasn’t confirmed this yet, but some outlets are saying she suffers from lupus and had a big flare up. So it makes sense that she’d cancel some concerts, but it never makes sense that Justin Bieber would be good for her downtime.
