Selena Gomez Cuts Interview Short After Justin Bieber Question (Video)

Actress Selena Gomez took a break from her 21st birthday festivities to promote her forthcoming album Stars Dance. She chatted with WGN’s Entertainment critic Dean Richards via satellite until the subject turned to her on-and-off-again pop star boyfriend Justin Bieber.

“You’re, you know, probably as close a friend to Justin Bieber as they come. Is there something about him that we don’t get or we don’t understand?” he asked Selena. “I mean, there is one story after another of, you know, pretty outrageous behavior that we’re reading about.”

Richards questions referred to the Biebs’ recent bad boy antics including public urination and reportedly spitting on neighbors’ faces.

But the Spring Breakers starlet immediately looked around in confusion (presumably a silent signal to her handlers) by the interrogation.

“What don’t we get about him or what is it that he’s not getting out there?,” Richards persisted, seconds before the image of her face cut out.

In a recent interview with InStyle, Gomez admitted that she felt uncomfortable about her relationship constantly making headlines.

“It’s uncomfortable that everywhere I go, people know,” she said when she and JB had allegedly split. “I don’t like that. But Justin and I never really focused on the attention. You can’t help who you date.”
