Selena Gomez was smart enough not to bring Justin Bieber to Thanksgiving

I guess we are still playing coy about Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber being back together. I’m not sure why, they don’t seem to be hiding it. So how official are they? Not quite ‘Home for the Holidays’ official, most likely because Selena’s family and close friends are not too excited about their reconciliation. For once, Selena used her head when it comes to Justin and did not bring him home to Texas for Thanksgiving. Instead, he spent the time with his family in Canada.

Not everyone in Selena Gomez’s inner circle may be ready for her new romance.

There’s no doubt that something is brewing between the “Come and Get It” singer and Justin Bieber. But as the pair appears to give their relationship another shot, E! News has learned these two decided to celebrate Thanksgiving away from each other.

“They both spent Thanksgiving with their families. Justin went to Canada and Selena was in Texas,” a source shared with E! News. “They are still doing really well together, but they agreed it was best for them to be with their families for the holiday.”

Our insider added, “Selena felt it was too soon for Justin to come to Texas with her. Her family is still getting comfortable with the idea of them back together.”

That’s not to say these two went the whole holiday weekend without communicating. Another insider says the pair was still in contact and Facetimed while they were apart.

“Justin says he hopes he can spend Christmas with her but knows that it will take a very long time for her family to accept him back in,” our source said.

“They don’t want to date anyone else. They both are very committed to making this work,” a source shared with us. “Justin and Selena have grown up since the last time they were together.”

“He’s trying to change and be a better guy. We’ll see what happens,” a source explained. “Justin is changing but it’s a process. He’s trying.”

Although I would be pleased if this “New Justin” was here to stay, I’m afraid I’m on Team Selena’s Family on this issue. I’m not sure how much my opinion matters to them, but I would push for no Christmas this year either. If these two make it work this time, they’ll have plenty of holidays in the future. I think easing the families back into accepting Jelena is a good plan. Good lord, her family almost lost her this year, I imagine the idea of her heart-broken on top of everything else is unnerving at best. I won’t condemn Jelena 3.0 just yet, but I will say that the admission on Justin’s part that, “it will take a very long time for her family to accept him back in,” is very telling.

Selena’s fans have had a lot to react to this week. First, The Weeknd deleted her photos from his Instagram, signaling the official death of The Seleknd. Then outlets leaked that Selena is tapped to be the new Sabrina the Teenage Witch. The series redux is said to be a dark Riverdale-style makeover called, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. That was the good news. The bad news? Selena’s Grammy snubs yesterday. Selena did not release an album last year but she did release some songs, none of which were recognized. I don’t know, I know I stand alone on this here but I’ve really enjoyed her music from Revival on. And yes, that includes Wolves that my daughter and I listen to at full volume. I’m not sure any of it deserved Grammy nominations but I’ve kind of loved her musical evolution. There, I said it.

    What’s up with her two tone legs in that pic?

  2. Goodvibes says:

    I like Selina. I hope she takes care of herself and her health.

    I don’t follow her and Justin’s on/off relationship too much – seems like they really love each other though. Justin must’ve done so many horrible things to her, otherwise why would her family hate him so much.

  3. Nicole says:

    I like Wolves as well but it’s not Grammy worthy. It’s a bop. Nothing more.
    I agree that Justin and Selena are bad for each other. But does anyone else get the feeling her family thinks everything that is wrong is due to him? Because from all the gossip she is just as messy as he is. Ie he should not shoulder the blame for everything that went left for them.
    I can’t believe I just defended him. Ugh.

  4. poop says:

    They’re just kids. Relationships come and go. It’s fun; it’s part of growing up. As long as they’re not getting married, it’s fine with me.

    • poop says:

      I know they’re in their 20s; I still consider that as “kids”

      • Lena says:

        I had a “toxic” / “unhealthy” relationship like them from 16 to 19 y/o. I’m only 21 now, but I can’t do it anymore, it made me a mess, I don’t know how she still can take him back. Why do we want such complicated things ?

    • Lahdidahbaby says:

      Yeah, me too. I’m far more concerned about the state of her hair. She was so much prettier with her natural dark hair. This way she looks kind of ordinary.

  5. laulau says:

    I feel like the highlighter blush is going to be the aughts version of 80′s ice blue eyeshadow.

    Selena’s taste in men is so weird to me, like there are so many actually awesome dudes who she could date/fake date.

  6. Who ARE these people? says:

    It was not Thanksgiving in Canada! Bieber just went home for a period of time we call Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

    Signed, Canadians who spent past week fielding Americans’ inquiries about how our Thanksgiving went and whether it’s “as big a deal up there.”

    (And ours was early October and still not as big.)

  7. Mela says:

    I cant wait for her show!

    Its going to be tough for their families to accept it but if he sticks around long enough (years), they will realize they have no choice to accept him Otherwise risk damaging their own relationships with Selena by creating a divide between her family and her relationship

    Jesus take the Wheel

  9. Mark says:

    Yawn. She is the most boring celebrity ever. This relationship is the only reason anyone pays her any attention, so she’s clinging on for dear life. Meanwhile, Justin is probably in Canada keeping warm with all the ladies up there. She shouldn’t trust him.

  10. perplexed says:

    She’s so much prettier with dark hair.

    It would never occur to me that she’s considered beautiful with this blonde hair.

  11. Goodvibes says:

    What did he do to her anyway?

  12. marina says:

    a Grammy for Selena????? muhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhaahahahahhahahahahahahahahahahah

    good one.

  13. ValM99 says:

    Her family need to stop acting like Selena is some innocent angel. Girl is just as messy as Justin! No one made her go back to Justin all those times she did. That was all voluntary. And she’s older than him. He was 16 and she was 19 when they started dating. I’m not here for blaming one person for a two person relationship.

  14. Henny In My Hand says:

    It wasn’t even Thanksgiving in Canada, so it’s not like Justin had to go home for the holidays! He probably just needed a break from “Selena in a Sophia Richie disguise”. I hate to say it, but she is trying way too hard to impress him, and it makes her look desperate.
    I’m not surprised to see she’ll be playing Sabrina The Teenage Witch. She’s as basic as the original, and her career is headed down the same path to obscurity unless this Justin thing keeps her in the spotlight for another 15 min.

  15. Candyland says:

    Agreed with everyone who says she’s boring. The new hair and relationship with Justin make it clear that she’s grasping at straws to get attention, but she has the charisma of a loaf of bread.
