Ever since Selena Gomez and Zedd showed up at a Golden Globes after-party together last weekend, rumors that they might be dating have been kicked into high gear. At first, it seemed like they were friends — they were spotted holding hands at the afterparty, but that could easily be a friend thing. And then, further solidifying the fact that Gomez probably didn't have anything romantic going on with the DJ, she was seen getting dinner with her ex-boyfriend (and bane of many people's existences), Justin Bieber, last week. That makes me think that Selena Gomez and Zedd aren't together, right? Until now. Zedd Instagrammed a pretty personal photo of Gomez, and it leads me to believe that if they are together, Zedd may not be in the relationship for the right reasons.
The photo in question is a black and white screenshot of Zedd and Gomez FaceTiming, featuring Gomez wearing what looks to be a bra while she's laying in bed. Uh, sketch much? Don't get me wrong. It's not that I have anything against Zedd, other than the fact that I am so tired of hearing "Clarity" on the radio more than two years after its initial release. It's just that Gomez is generally a pretty private person, and I can't imagine she's too comfortable having a picture like this online and available to the public.
Obviously, I'm going off of assumptions here, being that I don't actually know Zedd or Gomez (although she would make a pretty stellar best friend). The thing is, should we put it past him to use Gomez to get attention? She's been in the spotlight way longer than he has, so for someone in the music industry, I can see where there's something to be gained by being in Gomez's good graces. And as much as I want Gomez to stay as far away from Bieber as possible — and a new relationship would be an awesome way to accomplish that — she really doesn't need anyone in her life who is going to take her down.
As much as Zedd seems to like her, the feeling is apparently mutual. Sunday night, she shared an Instagram post of her own, mentioning how much she misses her new pal.
Gomez, if I can offer you one piece of advice, let it be this: Take your time. Enjoy being single. Don't jump into a relationship with a guy if he's using you for fame. And if you are happy with Zedd, send him my way so we can have a talk about what his intentions might be with our little girl. I can't stand to see you hurt again! Damn it, Bieber.
