On the heels of the teen relationship of the year between that of pop heart throb Justin Bieber and Disney manufactured princess Selena Gomez twitter followers and the media alike have spent the last few hours wildly speculating the origins of what appeared to be an excruciating red bump on our princesses lip as the duo walked out of their dinner date at LA’s Maggiano‘s.
Rumor had it that Bieber had hit princess and that’s when the world got on its knees and looked for the meaning of life and whether the American teenager was on a self colliding course.
Gawker: The believability of this is telling. #sorryjustin trended on Twitter as thousands of Beliebers gossiped about the supposed incident. Many reveled in Selena’s pain. Here’s one typically gleeful Belieber reaction: “Selena Gomez was punched in the face? Hahahahahaha.” Tweeted another: “U GO THE BELIEBER WHO PUNCHED SELENA IN THA FACE!!! U GO GHURLLLL!!!!! PUNCHHER HARDER NEXT TIME:):):) LOL.” Buzz over a possible video of Selena getting punched in the face soared almost as high as that surrounding Justin Bieber’s own 3D movie.
In the end the rumors were dispelled by the teenager’s PR machine (which has this author wondering when was the last time you ran into a teenager with a PR team?) allowing the media and devout twitter followers to once again resume life against the backdrop of our new national obsession- the coming and goings of two 17 year old children. Which begs the obvious question, how long before every teenager in America hires their own public relations team?
