From Nick Jonas To The Weeknd: Take A Look Back At Selena Gomez’s Dating History

Selena Gomez has come a long way from her starring role on Disney channel, becoming a household name, with seven top ten entries on the US Billboard Hot 100. Starring in a Disney TV show, several movies and releasing five albums as a music artist, the star has achieved so much for someone who is 26 years old. Selena, whose father is of Mexican descent, is also the most followed musician on Instagram. Her personal life is just as hectic as her professional life, with her mental and physical health sometimes being a burden. Her dating history has also been complicated and today we’re going to outline the main highlights.

The story starts like many stories; The Disney Channel. We all know that during Selena’s time with Disney, The Jonas Brothers were the coolest guys in town. Selena must have thought so too because she has confirmed that she dated the youngest Jonas brother, Nick Jonas, in 2008.This was shortly after Nick’s split with Miley Cyrus.

The couple dated for just under a year and then reportedly started seeing each other again in 2010 for a shorter stint. The reason the two permanently broke up is unknown. Both Selena and Nick were 15 years old when they began dating.

During an interview with Ryan Seacrest in 2008, Nick remained private about his relationship with Selena, neither confirming nor denying that they were a romantic couple. This constant secrecy may have been the reason Selena and Nick’s relationship didn’t work out.

10 years after the romance ended between Selena and the youngest Jonas Brother, it appears that the two singers still remain friends. In an interview with Capital FM in 2015, Selena said that Nick is “lovely” and that their relationship was “sweet” and like “puppy love”. Nick has also complemented Selena, even saying that she is a good kisser. The two of them have clearly kept in touch.

Selena also had a short relationship with Taylor Lautner whilst she was filming a movie.

Taylor Lautner, the actor most famous for playing the role of Jacob in the Twilight series, was filming a movie at the same location as Selena in 2009. They then began dating casually. The couple were spotted out together several times but the romance only last a few months. By the time Selena finished filming and returned home, the relationship had fizzled out.

Jelena, the celebrity couple name for Selena Gomez and Justin Beiber, has been used many times since the couple began dating in 2010. Justin, who is a Canadian singer and songwriter, rose to fame when he was just 14 years old. When he was 16, he began a romantic relationship with Selena who was 18 at the time.

After a couple of years dating and being completely loved up, it was announced that Selena and Justin had decided to split up in 2012. The reasoning behind the break up was supposedly due to their busy schedules which they found difficult dealing with whilst maintaining a relationship.

However, Selena and Justin continue a rocky on-off relationship over the next 4 years.

Selena and Justin continued to be close friends and were spotted being intimate with each other multiple times between 2012 and 2018. The couple clearly had a connection and never seemed to hide their affections for each other. They continued to date passionately for a few months at a time, taking breaks to have time apart every so often.

Selena clearly dealt with heartbreak.

The rocky Jelena situation led to speculation that Selena Gomez’s love song “The Heart What It Wants” was actually written about Justin. Selena did end up confirming that this was the case, following her emotional and heart-breaking performance of the single on the American Music Awards in 2014. The song was written after one of Selena and Justin’s serious break ups.

Following Selena’s unsteady relationship with Justin, she may have desired a romance that was more concrete and secure which led her to begin dating the R’n’B musician The Weeknd. The couple began seeing each other at the start of 2017 when Selena was 24 years old.

Selena and The Weeknd became the new Jelena for a while. Their romance may not have lasted as long as Jelena, but the couple actually started living together in New York in 2017 and bought a puppy together. During an interview with Insider, Selena expressed that she was very happy and that she felt “lucky because he’s more of a best friend than anything else”.

Selena’s relationship with The Weekend unfortunately ended within a year. By the end of 2017, Selena was single again. Discussing the split, Selena revealed to NME that the break up ended well. Selena said “We ended it as best friends, and it was genuinely about encouraging and caring [for each other]”.

After the news that Selena had broken up with The Weeknd, Justin revealed to PEOPLE that he was happy she was single again and hoped to regain her trust to get back together. Within a month of the break up with The Weeknd, Selena and Justin were spotted kissing and connecting again. A few months later, in 2018, Selena and Justin decided to take a break to spend some time focusing on themselves.

Selena and Justin may have attempted to stay in contact as close friends but, since the beginning of 2018, there has been no evidence to say that they have got back together romantically. The two have apparently permanently moved on. So much so that Justin got engaged to new girlfriend, Hailey Baldwin, in July. Justin and Hailey had previously dated for a few months back in 2015.

As Selena focuses on her health, she is reportedly single at the moment and not worried about having a man in her life. Selena revealed to E!News back in May that she is much happier doing her own thing. The sources also added that Selena is “fully open to dating” so a possible new relationship could be on the horizon.

Romeo Santos, Gloria Trevi, Selena Gomez Nominated For Pollstar’s Latin Touring Artist of Decade

Romeo Santos, Gloria Trevi, Selena Gomez Nominated For Pollstar’s Latin Touring Artist of Decade

With the COVID-19 pandemic shutting down most live entertainment, this year Pollstar is dedicating its awards to the top-performing tours of the last decade. In the Latin category, heavy-hitters like Romeo Santos, Maná, and Gloria Trevi are up for Latin Touring Artist of the Decade. Strangely, Selena Gomez is nominated for the award as well.

The Pollstar Awards honors the best-selling tours each year.

The 32nd annual Pollstar Awards will be taking place on June 16 in Los Angeles. The awards will be presented in partnership with Live Nation. While the ceremony usually honors artists, venues, and teams that have performed well in the past year, that would’ve been tough to do for 2020 with the pandemic shutdown. Pollstar instead compiled the top-selling tours of the past decade for this year’s awards.

Before the COVID-19 pandemic, Romeo Santos and Gloria Trevi were on roll with their tours.

The Latin Touring Artist of the Decade category is stacked with the icons that definitely filled seats before the pandemic. Aventura frontman Romeo Santos made history in 2019 when he became the first Latin artist to headline the MetLife Stadium. That year Mexican pop icon Gloria Trevi received an honorary award from Premios De La Radio as the top-selling touring Mexican female artist.

Santos and Trevi face-off with Maná, who sold out back-to-back concerts at Staples Center. Other top-selling acts in the category include Spanish pop star Enrique Iglesias, Puerto Rican icon Ricky Martin, Luis Miguel, Marc Anthony, and Alejandro Fernández.

Selena Gomez is Latina, but her last tour wasn’t a Latin tour.

The outlier in the category is Selena Gomez. There’s a whole pop category that she could’ve been included in. Even though Gomez is Mexican-American, she didn’t perform any Latin music on her Revival Tour. The multi-hyphenate star didn’t go full Latin until the release of her Revelación EP this year.

Jennifer Lopez is also nominated in the category, but she’s always coming through with her own Latin hits and Selena covers. J.Lo in the category is permissible, but Selena Gomez is a hard sell here.

Selena Gomez Launches ‘Mental Health 101’ Campaign, Wants Schools To Provide Mental Health Services To Students

Selena Gomez Launches ‘Mental Health 101’ Campaign, Wants Schools To Provide Mental Health Services To Students

On Thursday, Selena Gomez took to her Instagram page to reveal a new project she’s working on. And while Selena has been busy working on her Spanish-language album and makeup brand this year, this project is a little bit different. This project will be focused on a cause near and dear to Selena Gomez’s heart: mental health.

Along with Rare Beauty, Selena Gomez is launching a mental health initiative in Mental Health Awareness month to get more schools to provide mental health services to their students.

The initiative is called Mental Health 101. The campaign is meant to spark conversation with the question: What if mental health education was taught in school?”

Gomez posted a powerful short essay to her Instagram feed about how important mental health services have been to her. It read:

Today, I’m so grateful that we get to launch Mental Health 101. This campaign is so close to my heart because of my own struggles with mental health. I know first hand how scary and lonely it can feel to face anxiety and depression by yourself at a young age. If I had learned about my mental health earlier on – been taught about my condition in school the way I was taught about other subjects – my journey could have looked very different.

The world needs to know that mental health matters. It’s just as important as your physical health, and I wish we could acknowledged that, not just in words but through our actions.

For anyone who is hurting right now, I hope you know that you are not alone. I’m a believer in seeking help. Getting support and educating myself on mental health has changed my life, and it can change yours, too.

Gomez asked her followers to join her mental health initiative by doing three things: signing her change.org petition, donating to the Rare Impact fund, and spreading her message via social media.

Gomez’s Rare Impact fund has the goal of raising $100 million over the next 10 years to help connect people in underserved communities with mental health care. The fund will also be matching donations up to $200,000. You can donate here.

On the change.org petition, Selena Gomez wrote that it is “absolutely essential to offer mental health services in schools, and for the philanthropy community to prioritize this issue.”

The goal of Gomez’s change.org petition is to raise awareness amongst the philanthropy community about how important this issue is for you people.

She also wasn’t afraid to get candid. “Mental Health is personal for me,” she wrote. “Figuring out how to manage my own mental health hasn’t always been easy, but it’s something I am constantly working on. I hope I can help others work on it, too. I wish more people talked about mental health when I was younger, so I could have learned and understood what was going on with my own health earlier on.”
