The Word: Selena Gomez is single

If you see Selena Gomez, wish her a happy birthday and buy her a shot: She is 21 years old today. Maybe that’s just too old to tie herself down to a guy whose voice just changed, like, last year.

The singer confirmed to E! News that she’s single and that she and Justin Bieber are not together at the moment (or weren’t, at the moment the interview took place — their status seems to change with dizzying frequency.)

So what should guys looking to replace Justin do to win Selena’s heart? She says honesty is the most important thing she looks for in a partner. “Egos turn me off, big time,” she added.

She’s probably not a fan of peeing in buckets, either.

TMZ has a video of Justin and his posse fooling around in the basement of an unnamed NYC eatery. One of them, said to be Justin, is peeing into a yellow mop bucket. It’s a little hard to tell if it’s actually him, but he sure looks and sounds like the Bieb. As they leave, he also says “F*** Bill Clinton,” and sprays a photo of the former president with some cleaning fluid.

Sure. Now he’s concerned with cleanliness.
