On Feb. 15, the music world will come together and The Staples Center will be packed with the crème de la crème of pop music, but that's not what people are talking about. Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez will both be performing at The Grammys as well. Of course, they're not together anymore. But that doesn't meant we can't celebrate with photos of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, you know back from when they were together and we all believed in love.
Sure, it's exciting that LL Cool J is hosting the 2016 Grammys and, yes, the list of people performing at the 2016 Grammys is impressive. From The Eagles to a David Bowie Tribute by Lady Gaga, the set list is Coachella's wet dream. But since both Bieber and Gomez will be performing, this Grammy Awards is a horse of a different color.
This won't be the first time the ex-couple will be in the same room together, but the thought of the two long lost lovers sharing a stage (granted, at different times) is taking us back. Way, way back. Back to a simpler time, when Bieber and Kourtney Kardashian didn't hook up, Biebs didn't have neck tattoos, and riding a four wheeler with your significant other was just stupid cute.
Gomez has made it clear that she has no intention of taking Bieber back, but that doesn't keep The Biebs from posting "throwback" pictures of the two together via social media from time to time. Of course, it's probably not wise to assume to know the complicated (not to mention, private) intricacies of someone's romantic relationship using Instagram or Twitter or much of anything else, but I'd say someone is thirsty for Justin and Selena, Take 2.
So, in the spirit of eternal optimism and a belief in true love, here are some pictures of the once-happy couple. They might not be going to the 2016 Grammy Awards together, but that doesn't mean we can't continue to dream.
Strolling Downtown Together
Just your everyday stroll through the park... in designer duds... with your entourage. Classy, right?
Riding A Four-Wheeler
The Biebs posted this Throwback and told us all to "calm down" when we freaked out afterward. WELL THEN STOP TOYING WITH OUR EMOTIONS, BIEBER. (Side note... is he texting and driving?? Come on, now.)
Laughing At Awkward Friends Together
Listen, I don't know what that guy in the front is doing, but Bieber and Gomez are apparently entertained, and that's what really matters. Adorable.
Taking Selfies Together
I really miss the days when Justin's hair wasn't doing, well, whatever it's doing now.
TOO. CUTE. Look how young they were? Does this make you feel old yet?
Okay, this one got me. I mean, just look at how happy they are.
I don't even know what this is, or the context in which it was taken (or photoshopped)... but seriously. Can you imagine this as a family photo?
Obligatory Kissing Selfies
This is so cute, it's almost gross. Side note: Selena, where can I get those earrings?!
Hugging It Out
Don't you just want to reach through the screen and hug them too?
More Kissing Selfies
I don't know about you, but I'm pulling for these two crazy kids. Justin seems to have learned the error of his ways and Selena, well, Selena is still as bad ass as ever. Only time will tell (and, maybe, heal), but one thing is for sure: if these two get back together, you're probably going to want to drunk-dial your ex and maybe (definitely) don't do that.
