Celebrity diet news! Disney princess Selena Gomez might look great while posing for Justin Bieber in a new Instagram photo, but the starlet is rumored to be losing weight. Lots of weight, actually — and that’s a scary prospect for the super thin teen scene celebrity. But intentional dieting might not be the reason she’s slimming down right now. On Dec. 26, 2012, Hollywood Life issued a new news report that the beautiful brunette may inadvertently be yo-yo dieting.
It looks as if she’s on [what’s known in pop culture as] “the breakup diet” — going through what fans hope will only end up being a short-term eating disorder. She seems to be suffering from the syndrome since her romantic life with the Biebs started falling apart.
Many women who have gone through terribly difficult breakups, ugly divorces, or lived through crisis periods during tumultuous relationships know that when you are upset it is awfully hard to eat. Since Justin and Selena have apparently broken up several times in recent months and weeks, she has been looking even more gaunt than her usual skin and bones self lately.
The reconciliations might be sweet (between these two teen scene celebrities), but after he went out on a date with a Victoria’s Secret model she seems to have started acting far more self-conscious about her own body image. Tweeting his love for her just does not seem the same as of late.
Perhaps that’s why she’s been photographed looking so sexy — going out of her way to please the Biebs by trying to compete? Not only is she likely to be going through pain and anguish over the Biebs (something that may be affecting her desire to eat), knowing that underwear models are waiting in the proverbial panty liner wings to jet set off with her man can’t be very comforting.
[Some sources have even claimed she’s starving herself now to try and compete with the supermodels — even though she is already so thin and pretty.]
Hollywood Life reports, “Her up-and-down relationship with Justin Bieber is taking a toll and she [looks] thinner than ever,” a source told Life & Style magazine. “She isn’t eating because she has so much anxiety about Justin being faithful and doing right by her. Selena’s freaking out. She’s stressed about the fact that [Justin’s] added more tour dates and they’ll be apart for longer. She doesn’t trust him. Justin is on tour again and isn’t living up to his promises to Selena.”
Since Selena is such a talented young starlet, one would hope that she would wise up and consider dating someone other than the Biebs. He so young, rich, and famous that it will be hard for her to ever keep his eyes from wandering. A nice young girl, argument can be made that she deserves better than being treated like unimportant arm candy by the celebrity.
What do you think, readers? Should Selena Gomez try to gain some weight and lose the Biebs for good or should she stick it out while trying to remember to consciously take better care of herself by eating more? Let other viewers know your thoughts in the comments section below.
In other celebrity news, the real reason why Justin Bieber seems to have been looking a little more stout lately may have come to light. Having been accused of being a celebrity stoner, the pop music singer might be gaining weight lately because he has the munchies.
