Spotted: Justin Bieber Canoodling, Shopping With Selena Gomez On His 17th Birthday

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.

A birthday spent browsing luxury leather goods and carbo-loading? Has Justin Bieber been reading our diary? The pop star celebrated his 17th year alongside girlfriend (it’s official, right?) Selena Gomez, shopping at high-end retailers Louis Vuitton and D&G. And while expensive handbags have been known to incite lust in more than a few women, Sel only had eyes for Justin as the two were snapped in a steamy embrace.

After their day at the mall, the twosome recharged with a dinner at Maggiano’s Little Italy in L.A. before zooming away in Justin’s Yankee-Candle-air-freshener-scented ride. (My mom uses those too!) Justin later tweeted, “great bday. flew in grandma and got my cake. hung out with friends. got surprised. and you all helped #makeachange with @charitywater.”

Seems like it was an altogether low-key b-day for the Biebs. Perhaps he’s saving up his energy for the big 1-8?
