Everyone is in a tizzy right now because yet another product of the Disney tween star sweat shop has wound up in rehab, but I’m filing this one under, “yawn, sigh, next.”
Selena Gomez — who got her start playing a sassy teen wizard on “Wizards of Waverly Place” and was actually rather not-bad in “Spring Breakers” — landed herself in an Arizona rehab clinic last month. She later checked herself out early (probably not so smart), but that’s not the part of this whole thing that caught my interest for a second.
It’s the substances that Gomez needed treatment for that bear discussion here: alcohol (sure), pot (wellll) and.... Justin Bieber. Say what now?
According to sources/friends/etc., Gomez’s relationship with the Biebs was unhealthy to the point of addiction, and she needed to convalesce in a rehab center in the middle of the desert to break his hold on her. Say WHAT NOW?
Well, I suppose it makes sense. I imagine dating Justin Bieber must be a lot like meth addiction: one minute you’re a fresh-faced, functioning human being with hopes and dreams. Then, before you know it, you’re shivering in a corner, scratching holes in your face and wondering where it all went so wrong.
