Selena Gomez is All Smiles After Justin Bieber's Arrest

Splash News

Selena Gomez isn’t letting her ex-novio’s behavior bring her down.

According to US Weekly, the 21-year-old “Come & Get It” singer was photographed yesterday at a Los Angeles gas stations carrying a soda and pack of cigarettes. The Mexicana was all smiles in a cleavage-baring beige top with black pants and a matching oversized cardigan.

Later that day, Gomez was spotted having a girls-night-out with her best friend, Demi Lovato, who was sporting a brand new pink hair 'do. The two ladies seemed to be having a wonderful time as they dined together at Craig's Restaurant in West Hollywood. 

Early yesterday morning, her on-again off-again boyfriend Justin Bieber, 19, was arrested for DUI and drag racing in Miami. He posted his $2,500 bond and was released yesterday afternoon.

The couple - who were believed to be broken up - sparked a frenzy when Bieber posted an Instagram picture early this month of him and Gomez with the caption “Love the way you look at me.”

In an interview with Seventeen, Gomez admitted that she has huge ambitions for herself, and she isn’t about to let boy drama interfere with that.

“I actually talked to Katy Perry about guys who are intimidated by strong girls,” she says. “I haven’t found someone yet who could understand my lifestyle, support it, love me through it, and not be threatened by it. It’s hard. I do think I might scare some guys, because I’m like, ‘I want to change the world! I have dreams! What do you want to do?’ But I only know how to be me.” 

While we can’t condone Gomez’s smoking habit (put the cigarettes down, Selena!), we’re happy to see her so cheerful following yesterday’s incident. Perhaps Selena has moved on for good this time!
