Selena Gomez Warded Off Justin Bieber from the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

 

Ah, feminine power.

Justin Bieber had one good reason for not attending the 2015 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show: the presence of his ex-girlfriend. The singer tells Australia’s The Kyle & Jackie O show that he skipped out on lingerie’d Angel paradise because “Selena [Gomez] was doing it this year.”

Bieber also reveals that his day-to-day brain activity is similar to that of a NASA scientist. He plays Sudoku every morning and challenges himself to foreign interviews for which, “you have to concentrate hard on the answer” he says, before calling it quits.

“I feel more confident, like more people are on my side,” says the singer who recently stopped his concert after one song when fans did not respect his janitorial efforts. “It all changed when I stopped being in the news for the wrong reasons and people could see I was about the music.”

“I love the stage. Every time I get on the stage, I feel awesome!”
