With a following of over 100 million on her Instagram account, it’s clear that Selena Gomez is one of the most talked about celebrities in Hollywood. Her 2017 has definitely had its ups and downs, but one of the most talked about stories surrounding Gomez as of late is centered around her separation from her boyfriend, The Weeknd.
The two were together for close to a year, but allegedly their difficult schedules made their relationship one that just was not compatible. Despite this, we’re sure The Weeknd is going to spend plenty of nights reminiscing about his time with Gomez. Not to mention questioning on if he’s ever going to land a woman that’s quite as dynamite as Gomez. Who as you’ll read, was recently named the Woman Of The Year by Billboard Magazine.
Gomez’s talents, good looks, and even her budding potential re-romancing of Justin Bieber will all be covered below as we show you why The Weeknd is sure to be sad that it’s over with Selena Gomez.
15. Hit After Hit After Hit
Selena Gomez may know all about keeping her hands to herself now that she is finding herself back on the single train again! The popular single came off of Gomez’s 2nd (and most recent) album “Revival”. The album was a huge success for Gomez, including this particular song being performed on Saturday Night Live as well as at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
And as you may be able to tell by the photo we’ve included that she used to promote the song, many critics were hailing it as the sexiest side that Gomez has shown off yet.
14. Her Connections With Puma
Selena Gomez has used her popularity to help promote a variety of brands over the years. But one of her newest and most exciting partnerships comes with Puma athletic wear. When talking about the collaboration, Gomez said
“I’m really excited. When it comes to this whole world of fashion—that’s what I’m going to call it—I think it’s become this collaborative thing where streetwear and fashion blend into one. It’s a really beautiful thing because I see girls now feeling sexy in not even necessarily workout clothes, but clothes you could go work out in, then put on a cute pair of shoes and go out after.”
13. Bragging About His Girlfriend In Vogue
If we’re being honest, we don’t really know what the inspiration behind the above photo was. I mean, sure it makes sense to throw Selena Gomez in a gorgeous dress. And we suppose the flowers on the dress, match the similar theme that they have going on with the dirty mattress.
But the photo still seems to feature a dirty mattress and for that, we’re going to give it at least a little bit of a what the f*ck. But credit to Gomez for still dialing up her sex appeal for the photographer.
12. Her Amazing Stage Presence
Selena Gomez has many things in her life that she is passionate about, many of which will get talked about throughout our list. Perhaps the thing that tops the list though is being able to express herself through music. It was reported that Gomez wrote more than half of the songs that appeared on her 2nd album, “Revival”, which means she has definitely plenty of experiences of expressing herself through music.
When talking about the subject, Gomez said
“Singing songs that represent everything I am is just the best feeling in the world.”
11. How She Can Pull Off Any Haircut
Selena Gomez definitely looks to be having a good time in the above photo shoot that was done to help promote her music career. We’re sure that music was something that she and The Weeknd were able to bond about, which may mean seeing promotional work like this may make him all the sadder.
Though considering she is looking gorgeous, it wouldn’t matter what product she was promoting; this photo is still bound to bum him out and make him reflect on what he is going to be missing out on. Gomez recently worked on the song “Wolves” alongside the artist Marshmello. We’re sure that Gomez will be putting even more time and attention to her musical future now that she may find herself with more alone time!
10. How Dedicated She Is To Maintaining Her Form
Selena Gomez is one of the most health-conscious celebrities in Hollywood. She can often be seen working out and with our above photo, we show not only how amazing she looks in yoga pants, but how fantastic she looks when she also hits up the beach.
Talk about two for the price of one. The only downfall as far as Gomez may be concerned is the fact that both of these pictures were taken by the paparazzi, something that can definitely get annoying for celebrities. Now that she is single, we’re sure the paparazzi will be following her even closer in order to get inside scoops on what is going on in her personal life. Especially if she does find herself back in Bieber’s arms!
9. Bragging About His Girlfriend Being The Billboard Woman Of The Year For 2017
The above photo was taken by Billboard magazine back in 2015, but the company has had a great relationship with Gomez since then which means it probably won’t be the last time they work together.
In fact, the company recently came out and announced that Selena Gomez was their 2017 choice for “Woman Of The Year”
“Not only is Selena soaring on the charts, but she continuously inspires young women everywhere to be authentic, give back and to not be afraid to use their voice. She is never afraid to speak her mind and has used her platform to advocate for the needs of others. We are thrilled to be able to honor her as our Woman of the Year,” said John Amato, who is the president of The Hollywood Reporter-Billboard Media Group.
8. How The Paparazzi Always Catches Her Looking Amazing
Selena Gomez is no stranger to being caught by the paparazzi wearing a variety of outfits that show off her assets. Sometimes, however, it seems like she steps out in outfits where comfort is her top priority such as when she used to share hoodies that The Weeknd would also wear. At the end of the day, what really matters is that Gomez is dressing to whatever she is feeling that day and not confining to the pressures of society
“I think it’s important to feel confident in what you wear. That’s all I really care about—I want to make sure anything I put on, I feel good in, because how you’re feeling on the outside really does affect how you are on the inside,” said Gomez when talking about her fashion choices.
7. Hanging Out With Vanessa Hudgens
When a relationship ends, one of the biggest fallouts can be how your circle of friends gets broken up. That scenario may become even more awkward when you’re famous and the world is going to be well aware of who you are or aren’t hanging out with.
While we don’t know which one of Gomez’s friends The Weeknd bonded with the most, we wouldn’t be surprised if Vanessa Hudgens was near the top of the list.
Gomez and Hudgens previously worked together on the film Spring Breakers which they are promoting with our above photo. The film failed to make a huge splash at the box office, earning a little over $30 million but it also had a budget of roughly $5 million, so we’re sure everyone involved was happy with the end result.
6. Looking Comfortable For GQ Magazine
Selena Gomez looks gorgeous whenever she goes out for a night on the town, but she also looks tremendous whenever she steps in front of the camera for a photo shoot. And when the company you’re posing for is GQ, as she is in the above photo, you can believe the photos that she is going to come away with are going to be unforgettable.
The photos were taken by Victor Demarchelier and were published in their April 2016 issue. Gomez has once said “I’m learning that you can be comfortable and still look beautiful,” something that she is totally pulling off in the photo!
5. Sharing More Valentine’s Day Evenings On Yachts
Now we have to be fair and say that for the above photo, it’s not so much Gomez looking amazing that is going to make The Weeknd sad. It’s the fact that Gomez looked amazing when in his arms as the two celebrated Valentine’s Day.
And perhaps doing it the only way young, rich celebrities know how they decided to rent out a private yacht! We’re sure they both created some memories over their time there that will surely last a lifetime. And if they forget, at least they have these photos taken by the paparazzi to remind them. Even if thinking about those days may cause The Weeknd to feel pretty down on himself.
4. How She Looks In Red
We’re not too sure which one of the three poses of Selena Gomez you’re going to prefer. But we do know that you’re probably going to come away from this entry with a pretty solid appreciation for how stunning Gomez looks in red!
Despite the obvious benefits that come from photo shoots like this one, Gomez is well aware that there are some big negatives that come with her career path
3. Bragging About Yet Another Magazine Shoot
Selena Gomez may be looking coy as she poses away from the camera in our above photo, but she definitely had to know how amazing she was looking! And if she didn’t, we’re sure there are plenty of people out there who would be more than happy to throw some praise her way.
Gomez appeared in the outfit for Marie Claire magazine for their June 2016 issue. Though during her interview with the magazine she admitted how she can get annoyed if she gets asked too many questions about her dating life.
2. Laughing With Her
Selena Gomez definitely looks to be thrilled to be hanging out with The Weeknd in the above photo. Which may make the fact that a moment like this is now impossible to replicate for him all the harder to swallow. Especially because at the very least Gomez seems to be doing great since announcing the split.
But when talking about their relationship in August, Gomez had nothing but praise
“I don’t depend on one area of my life to make me happy. It’s really important for me to love and nourish my friends and family and to make sure that I never get influenced by a guy. I’ve wanted to be in a strong headspace for years, and I really wasn’t. Before, I was so young and easily influenced, and I’d feel insecure. You want someone to add to your life, not to complete you if that makes sense. I’m lucky because he’s more of a best friend than anything else.”
1. Will She Go Running Back To Justin?
One of the worst things that you may experience is finding out that your former partner has started shacking up again with one of their ex-flings. And while the full-on booty bumping has allegedly not begun to re-commence, The Weeknd may find himself particularly bummed out with how much time Gomez seems to be spending with Bieber lately
The above photo was taken after the two enjoyed a bike ride shortly after reports emerged of the split between Gomez and The Weekend. An insider spoke out to US Weekly indicating that Bieber does, in fact, want to get back with Gomez, but as of now, we’re just going to have to wait and see!
