Ellen DeGeneres teased Selena Gomez on her show today for making her look like a “fool.” Ellen showed a clip of Gomez’s last appearance on her show, in which she denied the rumors she was dating Justin Bieber. “He’s little. He’s like my little brother. That’s weird to me,” the clip showed her saying.
Ellen joked that Selena’s public appearance with Bieber at the Vanity Fair party proved they were, in fact, dating. “Well, you were trying to hide it still, right? But now you’ve made it public. Now, you went to the Vanity Fair party and made me a fool.”
Gomez joked, “Don’t take me to jail!”
Ellen dug the knife in deeper. “He’s sweet as can be. But he’s not like your little brother, is he? No, he’s not. And he’s a fantastic guy. You can’t try to hide that forever. I know you all were sneaking around, but that’s crazy. You’re both huge stars and you can’t hide from us.”
Selena went on to say she didn’t “lie,” but agreed that dating someone that is like your little brother would be weird. “No, you didn’t blatantly lie. A little brother is not someone you want to date,” Ellen said.
In the end, Ellen didn’t take it personally and gifted Gomez a Justin Bieber pillow to snuggle with while she is on tour.
