Girl-on-girl crime has reared its ugly head again, and unsurprisingly, it centers on the affections of one Justin Bieber. Caitlin Russo, the lady charged with kissing Bieber in his latest music video for "All That Matters" tells Cosmopolitan that his ex-girlfriend and sometimes-Instagram buddy Selena Gomez might have "some bitterness" over seeing the duo getting steam all over the new video. What's more is that the new music video star didn't even throw the first social media punch — it was Gomez.
"She posted a picture on Instagram that said, 'I thought he only liked the Latina category. Smh... #nomakeup #hatewhengirlssaythat.' It was clearly directed at him with me in the video, but like I said I was just doing my job," said Russo.
Ladies, don't ever let this be you. Not only are these little bratty asides petty and bad form, they're directed at Bieber of all people. This is the guy who pees in mop buckets, goes Alec Baldwin on photographers, and spits on his neighbors when they disagree with him. If I didn't know any better, I'd think he was trying out to be a contestant on Rock of Love.
What's worse is that, per usual, Gomez isn't the only one making snide remarks. Russo also mentions Bieber fans on Twitter who told her to "die" or "kill herself." It's sadly not an uncommon action for Bieber fans, who sent Gomez similar messages when her romance with the pop star initially became public.
So here it is Beliebers, crazy Twitter fans, and Selena Gomezes of the world: do not let this erratic selfie-aficionado turn you against your fellow ladies. We're at a point in history where women are still unfairly being called emotional and irrational on a regular basis whenever they express an opinion, and using your God-given voices to tear down other ladies for hanging out with a pop star kind of undoes any headway we've made to combat that issue.
Besides, if you're going to set women back a few years, at least do it for someone whose sexiness is so beyond words that it's understandable as to why you might experience a brain blip. On second thought, not even Benedict Cumberbatch is worth all that, so cut it out, ladies.
