Selena Gomez And The Weeknd Just Kinda-Sorta Confirmed Their Relationship

Ever since Selena Gomez was spotted making out with The Weeknd next to a dumpster (I can’t make this stuff up), the internet has been collectively musing about the official status of the pair’s relationship. Because if you can’t obsess over a celebrity relationship that has no bearing on your life whatsoever, then this is definitely not planet Earth.

Fortunately for those of us who are waiting with baited breath to hear any sort of confirmation about this potential celebrity couple, it appears that the Selena and The Weeknd are official — Instagram official, that is.

Earlier this week, TheWeeknd took the social media plunge and started following Selena Gomez on Instagram.

Selena responded in kind by following him back less than a day later.

I know, I know — this doesn’t necessarily mean anything, in terms of a romantic relationship. However, Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift did the same thing when they were in the early days of their relationship, so who’s to say this isn’t the ramp-up for a full-blown relationship?

(And yes, you know times are dark when you’re sanctimoniously mentioning Hiddleswift.)

Selena and The Weeknd were also recently spotted in Florence together, which certainly seems indicative of some sort of romantic, committed relationship. (F*CK, HIDDLESWIFT ALSO WENT TO ITALY DURING THE HONEYMOON PERIOD OF THEIR RELATIONSHIP.)

I’m not sure what’s going on, but it seems like Selena Gomez and The Weeknd may very well be going the direction of Hiddleswift: plenty of publicity and affection up top, which inevitably fizzles out once the weather changes. My only hope is that they somehow manage to be less annoying.

In all likelihood, this relationship will most certainly crumble before springtime — but hey, at least Bella Hadid will be happy.
