Cute Couple Alert! Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez Kiss at Billboard Awards (PHOTOS)

By: / May 22, 2011

Justin Bieber and his gal Selena Gomez showed some slight PDA while in the crowd at the Billboard Music Awards. The young couple posed for pics, but cameras also caught Selena with her hand on the teen heartthrob’s knee. 

Dressed in a gold blazer, Bieber won Top New Artist and kissed Selena before taking the stage to accept the award, thanking his fans, his mother and even his swagger coach Ryan Good.

The kiss was the latest big show of public affection for Bieber and Gomez, who for months evaded any admissions that they were dating. That was, until they stepped out together for the first time at the Vanity Fair Oscars party back in February.

Check out the kiss from Sunday night’s award show below.
 

This was the first time Selena has stepped out since the controversy over her music video. 

Not only was the singer/actress blasted by singer Pink for having pink painted horses in her “Love You Like a Love Song” video, PETA was also not too happy with the animal treatment. 

“There are no safe ways to paint a live horse or any animal; they can have painful allergic reactions to chemicals and there’s no way to know how an individual animal will react,” a rep for PETA told Celebuzz.

“Also, subjecting skittish animals like horses to extended periods of restraint and spraying is stressful and frightening.”

Selena’s camp has since responded to the controversy, saying that the pink substance was “non toxic, vegetable based powder paint.”
