Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez
Justin Bieber can't be blamed for wanting to keep a romantic relationship secret; his fanbase was ready to roast Kim Kardashian alive when she and the Biebs were momentarily BFF's. But questions mounted as Bieber was continually spotted out and about with fellow teen idol Selena Gomez. Perhaps fearing for her own safety, Gomez downplayed their affection as mere friendship, claiming, "...We just like to hang out."
Whether that was true in 2010, Gomez and Bieber had clearly taken things to the next level in 2011, when they were snapped swapping saliva in their swimmies in St. Lucia.
In May 2011, Gomez came clean and told Seventeen that their matching-outfits Oscar date was their "prom". She elaborated, saying "I’m eighteen, and I’m going to fall in love. I’m going to hang out with people, and I’m going to explore myself, and I’m okay with that."
