While doing a satellite media tour on Monday ― her 21st birthday ― to promote her upcoming Stars Dance Tour, Gomez was probed about her off-again/on-again boyfriend Justin Bieber's recent bad-boy behavior, and apparently it wasn't a topic she felt like discussing: The interview came to a shrieking halt.
WGN-TV entertainment critic Dean Richards was among the outlets talking to Gomez during her media blitz. “You're, you know, probably as close a friend to Justin Bieber as they come," he said. "Is there something about him that we don't get or we don't understand? I mean, there is one story after another of, you know, pretty outrageous behavior that we're reading about.”
At first the "Come & Get It" singer looked down uncomfortably ― almost as if she were wishing away the awkward situation ― and then she smiled to someone off-camera. Despite Gomez's obvious hesitation, Richards pressed on, following with, “What don't we get about him or what is it that he's not getting out there?”
But before giving any insight into life with the 19-year-old Bieber ― which Gomez opened up about the night before during her interview with Ryan Seacrest (she claims she's single despite the recent Instagrams of the two) ― the feed was suddenly terminated and the "Spring Breakers" star's pretty pout disappeared from the screen. Richards then sort of chuckled to himself as he realized the interview had been disconnected.
