Being young, famous, rich and above all, madly in love, sounds like the ultimate dream come true for many of us, who are still struggling to figure out the roads that lead to that complete sense of happiness we aspire of one day achieving. But, let’s not get fooled by appearances, because as we quickly learned over the past years, in the world of celebrities at least, nothing too good seems to last forever. At one point, the fame, the time-consuming career, the busy schedules and the often separate lives couples tend to live, are factors that get in the way of things, managing to put an end to even the most durable relationships. Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber formed the hottest young Hollywood couple right up until this month, but unfortunately they ended up right on top of the “love stories that didn’t last” list.
The 20-year-old Selena, and the 18-year-old old Justin, put an end to their magical relationship a week ago. A reliable source told E! Entertainment that “Because of their crazy schedules, it was getting harder and harder to maintain a relationship …”. They must know better, don’t they?
Stepping Back in Time. Selena and Justin chose the glamorous 2011 Vanity Fair Oscars Party as the perfect location to make their couple debut, and to finally confirm on the intense media rumors surrounding them at the time. The young stars arrived at the last year’s event holding hands, in matching Dolce & Gabbana looks, sharing smiles and acting all flirty as they went public with their happy relationship. However, the first ever candid shoots putting the two artist together, were photographed back in December 2010 in Miami, prior to one of Justin’s concerts.
Right from the moment the young couple made their relationship official, the paparazzi took on the habit of following on their footsteps 24/7. The media passion for the two lovebirds hit an all-time high during the famous couple’s first-ever vacation together. Selena and Justin had the time of their lives strolling, kissing and holding hands in Maui back in May 2011. That’s also when the world split into two opposite camps, because let’s be honest, just like any other Hollywood couple, Justin and Selena had their share of supporters and … their fair share of unhappy fans.
One of the most romantic and sweet moments the couple ever shared on the red carpet, took place during the 2011 American Music Awards, when a tuxedo dressed and very much in-love Bieber, helped his beautiful girlfriend with the floor-length dress, only to cover her in kisses minutes after. Now, that’s what we like to call a real gentleman.
After almost two years of intense romancing, Selena and Justin were last photographed together back in October, during a fun date at the Sky High Sports Trampoline Park. The couple made separate exits, building up to the rumors of an eminent break-up. In least than a month, the inevitable happened, as the two young celebrities decided to put an end to their dreamy relationship, leaving their fans in a haze. Justin Bieber is already rumored to be dating 19-year-old Ungarian supermodel Barbara Palvin, after the two were spotted together at the Lion King Broadway play. Selena is instead focusing on her music and acting careers, maintaining a schedule filled with exciting projects.
Either you liked this particular couple or not, you must also be feeling like the times when two people put an end to a beautiful story, are a little bit disappointing and sad. We all dream about happy endings and everlasting love stories after all, and we definitely all deserve them.
