‘Brave’ Selena Gomez Takes Bikini Selfie Following Justin Bieber Zoo Date

Jelena's Zoo Date
Details on Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez's rendezvous.
Selena Gomez has a message for the world: she’s brave.

On Monday, Gomez delivered her bold statement in the form of a selfie on Instagram. And just like her previous declaration, our girl’s in a bikini.

“Soy valiente,” Gomez wrote in the caption for the selfie, above. (The two words mean “I am brave” in Spanish).

While the context of SelGo’s new declaration is up for debate, the timing couldn’t be more fitting — the 21-year-old singer is definitely, maybe, back with former flame Justin Bieber.

Over the weekend, the on-and-off-again couple spent the afternoon at the Los Angeles Zoo. They also went to dinner and a movie.

Last week, Gomez and Bieber, 20, were spotted at a party for a mutual friend’s birthday and again at bible study in L.A.

Gomez’s “brave” message is also fitting in the professional sense. It’s only been a few short months since the “Come and Get It” singer switched managers and fired her parents.

“Taking my power back,” Gomez told her Instagram fans in May. “Can’t wait to show you where I’ve been. I love y’all.”

Around the same time, Gomez’s grandparents expressed some concern over her toxic relationship with the Biebs, before admitting that “she loves him.”

While fans patiently wait for the next chapter of the Jelena saga, one thing’s for sure: Selena Gomez is brave for wearing a bikini, taking a selfie and sharing it with millions of people. Seriously — have you ever tried it?
