Every day a multitude of stars wander through the halls of MTV News to talk about their latest projects and goof around with staff members. But sometimes we catch stars elsewhere, and that’s why we put together Spotted!, a daily compendium of stars in the wild.
Rumors of a more-than-friendly relationship between Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber have been swirling ever since the two were photographed mid-snog on a private yacht over New Year’s—but after denials from both stars, we couldn’t be sure they were really an item. That is, until now: the two were spotted out in Santa Monica, strolling along the pier and shamelessly… oh. They’re just holding hands.
But still! Us Weekly reports that Justin, 16, and Selena, 18, were snapped mid-canoodle by photogs. Their response to getting caught red-handed? Giggling.
Yep, it’s a teenage romance, alright.
Will it last? We don’t know! These two are awfully busy to be balancing a relationship on top of their music/movie/television careers…but they do look pretty cute together. So here’s hoping these crazy kids make a go of it—and also, that brokenhearted Bieber fanatics don’t unleash the fury on Selena. Yikes.
