Locking lips and dashing the hopes of countless tween girls, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez might just be the new hot celeb couple of 2011. Mila Kunis and Macaulay Culkin are not. Who else is on the celeb dating scene?
Been Caught Kissing: Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez
Leave it to TMZ to have an undercover Peeping Tom with a camera handy just when Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez start kissing. Another photo clearly shows the singer’s hand on Gomez’ posterior — a shot that stirred fury in the Bieber camp of female followers; reaction was swift and frightening.
Bieber fans threatened to kill Gomez, themselves or a potential heartbreaker. Dating Justin is going to be a bit of a tightrope walk for the UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador and Disney actress. For anyone who is worried about the (underage?) 16-year young Bieber: Remember how CBC News reported just a couple of short years ago that in Canada the age of consent just so happens to be 16!
First Celeb Breakup of 2011?
Mila Kunis and Macaulay Culkin might just have the dubious honor of being the first celebrities to break it off in 2011. The Ottawa Citizen explains that the couple — at 27 and 30 virtually senile when compared to Bieber and Gomez — have ended their seven-year relationship in an “amicable” way.
It is interesting to note that they held off on making an announcement while Kunis was busy promoting “Black Swan.” This breakup news is a far cry from the assertion that Culkin was a “steady rock.” So far it is unsure what is next on the horizon for either star.
Who else is on the Horizon?
With Bieber and Gomez on, Kunis and Culkin off and the royal engagement photos of Prince William and Kate Middleton ushering in a much looked-forward to wedding at Westminster Abbey, 2011 starts off a romantically turbulent year for sure.
Adding controversial fuel to the fire will be Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock, who spent New Year’s Eve together. People suggests that they were just two among a group of friends, but this coupling might very well be the first “no way” of the 2011 celeb dating scene.
