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.

One of Selena Gomez’s first boyfriends was a Jonas brother.

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.

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 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.

Selena Gomez Offered A Special Commencement Speech To Immigrads Celebrating Their Special Achievement

Selena Gomez Offered A Special Commencement Speech To Immigrads Celebrating Their Special Achievement

It is graduation season and Covid-19 has changed how we conduct graduation ceremonies. This year, few high school seniors will be able to walk across the stage as states and counties protect their health and offer graduation alternatives. Celebrities have stepped up to give these seniors special commencement speeches.

Selena Gomez wanted to give immigrads a special commencement speech honoring their experience.

“Congratulations to all of the Immigrads,” Gomez says int he video. “I know that this is a virtual ceremony, but it is very real and it is very real to all of the families, and all of you, and your communities. I want you guys to know that you matter and that your experiences are a huge part of the American story.”

Gomez used her speech to connect with the immigrant graduates by relating to their stories.

“When my family came here from Mexico, they set into motion my American story, as well as theirs,” Gomez says. “I’m a proud third-generation American-Mexican, and my family’s journey and their sacrifices helped me get me to where I am today. Mine is not a unique story. Each and every one of you have a similar tale of becoming an American.”

Gomez gave her address for Define American, an immigrant-led organization.

Define American “is a narrative and culture change organization that uses media and the power of storytelling to transcend politics and shift the conversation about immigrants, identity, and citizenship in a changing America,” reads the website.

Gomez fans are here to support the singer and her speech.

Gomez has used her platform to confront major topics in American politics and society. She produced “13 Reasons Why” to enter the conversation about teenage suicide and has used her social media platform to celebrate undocumented immigrants chasing the American Dream.

Gomez ended her speech giving all of the immigrads some words of encouragement.

“So, regardless of where your family is from, regardless of your immigration status, you have taken action to earn an education, to make your families proud, and to open up your worlds,” Gomez says. “So, I’m sending all of my love to you guys today, and congratulations, and I hope that you guys are set off to be everything that you want to be.”

How Selena Gomez’s Decision To Let Her Natural Curls Loose During Quarantine Is The Ultimate Form Of Self-Care

Even while in quarantine, singer, actress, and soon-to-be makeup mogul Selena Gomez is managing to promote her new cosmetics brand, Rare Beauty. Before quarantine, Gomez would have followed the go-to-recipe for media promotion of her beauty products while in public: flaunting them on red carpets and rocking them on the street for paparazzi to capture and post on celebrity blogs.

Today, the producer/ businesswoman is promoting her new brand by proving the comfort it brings to her in her own home. Which makes for some pretty smart marketing if you ask me.

In a recent post to her Instagram page, Gomez shared a series of selfies wearing her natural curls and makeup from Rare Beauty.

“I had an urge to put my make up on,” Gomez wrote in the post’s caption. “My papa noticed then proceeded to ask “why do you look like that?” He whistled as he walked away. So there’s that. Wearing all @rarebeauty.”

In the picture, Gomez appears to be wearing a creamy nude lip product, winged liner, foundation, and concealer (which we know are meant to come in quite a few shades).

Gomez’s beauty launch might be impacted by the current pandemic but the singer is clearly unruffled.

The global pandemic has led many brands to put a pause on production to comply with necessary health measures.

Still, much to our delight, Rare Beauty seems to be trucking along with their plans for a summer on rarebeauty.com and Sephora. This gesture is something that we are particularly grateful for considering the fact that makeup has proven time and again to give us a sense of empowerment and confidence that we can all need in this time filled with so much doubt. From the looks of it, Gomez is using her own Rare Beauty products to help with her own self-care and we really can’t wait to do the same!
