After playing a clip from Selena Gomez’s prior appearance on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’, the talk show host asked the actress about her prior comments referring to Justin Bieber as being “like my little brother.” The exchange went as follows:
Ellen: He’s like your little brother? … What do you have to say now?
Selena: I don’t know. I don’t know.
Ellen: Well, you were trying to hide it still, right? But now you’ve made it public. You went to the Vanity Fair [Oscar] party and made me a fool.
Selena: No, I really didn’t.
Ellen: Yes, you did!!
Selena: I promise you, I didn’t. He’s just sweet.
Ellen: He is. 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: I didn’t lie to you. I didn’t, though. I’ll say that.
Ellen: No, you didn’t blatantly lie. A little brother is not someone you want to date.
Selena: Well, no. That would be weird.
Ellen: That would be wrong and weird in so many ways.
