Justin Beiber girlfriend, Selena Gomez, was hospitalized Thursday for stomach discomfort and a head ache and this has spun into pregnancy rumors online. Justin and Selena have also been captured in pictures in some very serious public displays of affection, which have also fueled this fire that the two teens are sexually active.
With Selena in the hospital undergoing tests, Justin continues to share his affection for his girlfriend with public tweets to the 18 year-old Disney star. As the website, Hollywood Dame points out, these rumors that Selena is pregnant may have a lot to do with what people have seen lately of Justin and Selena in pictures.
The two pictures that were the biggest offenders, really tell the story of how serious this relationship has gotten. The picture where Selena actually straddles Justin on the beach while wearing a bikini and they are engaged in a passionate kiss is not something that young kids should see their idol doing. Then the picture of Bieber grabbing Gomez’s rear-end in the heat of passion is another display in public that is inappropriate. This type of public behavior is not appropriate for anyone while out in public, not just Hollywood celebrities.
Whether Justin and Selena like it or not, they are role models for young teens and tweens today. This population makes up the majority of their fan base. Now that Bieber’s fans have made him very successful, he does have a moral obligation to live up to this clean, good kid, image that parents have spent millions of dollars on when purchasing CD’s DVD’s, concert tickets and Justin Bieber memorabilia. He needs to remember that it is the parents that pay for their kids to idolize and participate in Bieber Fever. Parents are not going to like this new image the teen heart throb is portraying.
Kids imitate their idols and these recent actions seen between Bieber and Gomez are not something parents will be happy about seeing their kids engage in. Bieber has conveyed a very clean cut image up until the last month or so, with his innocent upbeat songs of young teen love, his performances carry a “G” rating and he even sports a tattoo that says Jesus in Hebrew to denote his religious beliefs.
The same holds true for Selena, who comes from clean cut Disney stock, these two have the seal of approval from most parents. While Justin and Selena might find the urge overwhelming to paw each other in public, they have a responsibility to young fans, which should keep them saving these displays for when they are out of the public eye.
