1. Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber have broken up… Again.
Our favorite couple that we love to hate has decided to take yet another break. After rekindling the flame back in October 2017, the two are now cooling off. Perhaps they attended one too many hockey games together. Or maybe it was church. I know if I went to church as much as these guys did (up to twice a day), I'd need a break, too.
Although reasons for the split are unknown, people are speculating that it's because of Selena's mom's disapproval of Bieber, but I don't know. While I see that would be a fair reason, Selena "hung out" with Bieber for several months despite that, so I don't see how that'd stop her now all of a sudden. All we know is that Selena jetted off to Texas to be with family and clear her head, and Bieber was seen looking distraught in a car:
Did anyone else laugh when they saw that photo? It's okay if you did.
Bieber also took the time to Instagram a bad photo of himself ordering a poké bowl.
Is that his way of letting Selena know that he's doing just fine without her? Some people post hot selfies after a breakup, but Biebz posts poor photos of him looking quite homeless, drowning his sorrows in a big bowl of raw fish and rice. Look at what you're missing out on, Sel!!! (Nothing. You're missing out on absolutely nothing.)
I was initially mad when I found out the two were back together, but I was just starting to warm up to the idea of them as a couple. And of course right when I start to like it, they break up. This is why you don't get too attached, kids. If you're super sad like me, fear not, because a source close to Bieber shared, "They've been having disagreements, but it wouldn't be surprising if they're back together in a week."
It was recently Bieber's birthday and it looks like Gomez used it as an opportunity to make their relationship Insta Official. Maybe that caused tension?
2. Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik also broke up.
I'm sorry, all you amazing #WTFWeekly readers. You come here each week for some uplifting, lighthearted drama in the hopes that it will make your own uneventful lives just a little more joyous, and here I am delivering bad news after more bad news. Perhaps a way sadder breakup, Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik have officially called it quits. I found out the news last night when my mom texted me about it and found it as a huge shock since they're both super hot and super famous. How could a relationship based off of those two things not end in harmonious marriage? Well, you know what my mom said when she texted me with the news? "I bet she broke up with him."
Although reasons for the breakup are currently unknown, momma might be right; after over two years of dating, Zayn unfollowed Gigi and her mom on Instagram BUT, she is still following him. Hmm... Zayn's sister also shared a cryptic post on Instagram after their announcement, saying "horrible people get nowhere."
The two ex-lovers posted their own statements on the breakup:
Man, imagine breaking up with someone and then having to post a statement about it to the entire world? I honestly feel bad for them. Anyway though, although Zayn called the relationship "meaningful" and Gigi said she has "immense love and respect" for Zayn, it all seems a little too fishy. Fans are now speculating the endless possibilities...
People are saying Zayn's first post since announcing the breakup looks "heartbreaking":
I don't think it looks too heartbreaking though? He just looks like Justin Bieber.
People are also saying Bella Hadid's latest post
could be about them, but I think that's a pretty far stretch.
Like I said, I think my mom was right - Gigi definitely did the dumping. It's either because she's too busy or honestly she found someone better, which is totally possible because she's Gigi and can date whoever she wants. No matter the reason, Zayn is looking like the bitter one, and I'm over here sobbing because the world's most promising couple just ended.
I wonder if this is awkward now:
3. Here's a video of Taylor Swift rehearsing the choreography for her "Delicate" video.
I feel bad for dropping so much heartbreaking news on you guys today, so I'm just going to leave this here.
Also, it might cheer you up to know that Taylor's video for "Delicate" is being accused of unsolicitedly riffing off of Kenzo's 2016 perfume ad which was directed by Spike Jonze and starred Andie MacDowell's daughter Margaret Qualley.
For those who haven't seen "Delicate":
An anonymous "top fashion PR pro who's worked with Kenzo" told Page Six
, "Listen Tay, I feel you. It's hard to stay fresh. Call us, we can help."
Hopefully that funny little piece of drama makes you feel better about Gigi and Zayn now!
