Fans Believe Justin Bieber Defended Selena Gomez in Cryptic Instagram Note
As everyone knows, the 2018 Met Gala was on Monday and tons of the biggest celebs stepped out wearing the most elaborate and beautiful outfits in honor of the theme Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.
While pretty much every major celeb walked the carpet, one person who was obviously missing was Justin Bieber. The “Friends” singer has been taking a break from big public events, but we were still hoping that he would make an exception for this fashionable night.
Although he didn’t show up dressed to the nines, he did make his presence known in another way. The morning after the event, JB posted a note on Instagram pleading with people to not get distracted by the all the fancy clothes and that celebrities are just normal people, too.
Justin didn’t explain the reasoning behind the note, but the timing of it all makes it pretty obvious. Fans even believe that this was the singer’s way of defending Selena Gomez over all the hate she received about her Met Gala look.
The “Wolves” singer was accused of blackface due to her skin being seriously darker than normal and people were less than thrilled over her dress. In her Instagram Stories, Selena was super excited about the night and said that she would explain every detail in an Instagram post, but she hasn’t uploaded a single photo from the night yet.
Selena said she was gonna post more on her Instagram but received heavy backlash so she didn’t. She didn’t post not one picture, because she was called fat, ugly and pregnant. I feel so bad for her. She looked beautiful. #WeAreSorrySelena pic.twitter.com/oSCG8w1G9x

Fans believe that the Biebs wrote this note to take the attention off Selena and that people who were hating on her would take a step back and remember that she’s a normal person, too.
Was Justin really trying to defend Selena or was the timing just coincidence? Either way, the note is definitely an important reminder.
