Is it too late to say sorry? As fans still try to recover from the most recent Jelena split, Justin Bieber has fueled the fire once again. The "What Do You Mean?" singer revealed who his first love was — and, no, it wasn't Selena Gomez. He graced our Instagram timelines with video footage of himself — shirtless, no less — playing the drums with the caption, "Drums will always be my first love."
Selena, on the other hand, has different ideas about her first love. While talking to V magazine in 2015, the singer opened up about one of her first real relationships. "I was 18 years old, and it was my first love. The older I get, I'm guarding certain things more," she revealed. "When you're young and you're being told so many different things…it almost felt like all we had was each other, like the world was against us, in a way."
She continued, "It was really weird, but it was incredible. I would never take it back in a million years. You live and you learn, you know?" And although she may not have mentioned Justin's name, who else could she have possibly been talking about?
It's unclear when Justin and Selena officially started dating, but their history goes way back. The pair was spotted holding hands for the first time in 2010 in Phildelphia — Justin was 16 years old, while Selena, who is two years his senior, was 18. But it's been a tough road ever since, with multiple break ups and make ups, cheating rumors, and PDA-filled romps to last a lifetime.
But regardless of Selena's feelings, Beliebers immediately flooded Justin's Instagram comments section and dragged her into it. "Sorry @selenagomez you are not his first love," one person sarcastically wrote. Another questioned, "What about Selena?"
However, the Biebs actually knew how to play the drums before he even knew who Selena was. In fact, there are videos of him as a two-year-old boy showing off his musical talent by drumming the top of a kitchen chair. By nine years old, he graduated to a real drum set. Fans can even watch YouTube clips of a young Biebs bang away — proving that he might not actually be throwing shade here.
