When it comes to love, Selena Gomez’s bff Taylor Swift, has made it known she doesn’t like Bieber as her boyfriend. Also, her parents think the couple need time apart. “Selena has cut off Justin. She told him they can remain friends but she needs space for a while to get over him fully,” a source close to the pop singer said.
Bieber who’s a Pisces never gives up on love. It seems he wants Selena Gomez the most when they are apart. I guess you always want, what you can’t have and he misses his girlfriend. Still, he’s enjoying his new single status by hanging out and partying with the boys.
For Selena Gomez a Cancer, her feelings are hurt. She can’t help but feel jealous and possessive over Bieber’s flirty ways. She’s laser focused on her career now, with her new movie Spring Breakers hitting theaters soon, Selena should enjoy her moment in the spotlight.
Astrologically speaking, Astrochicks predicts that Selena Gomez will move on with an older boyfriend. She needs to be put on a pedestal with a guy she can trust. No doubt, she still really loves Bieber but he’s too young to settle down. For Bieber, he won’t have any problem finding a new girlfriend, although Selena will always be his first love.
What goes really well with sci-fi explosions, spaceships and intergalactic conflict? Romance, of course. Beth Revis, author of Shades of Earth, book three in her Across the Universe series, explains …
Beth: I think it surprises a lot of readers that my YA science- fiction novel — with spaceships, explosions, and lots of star-strewn action — actually has quite a bit of romance in it as well.
Romance is a pretty big staple in most young adult (YA) literature today, and for good reason. Elizabeth Wein, author of the amazing YA historical novel Code Name Verity, pointed out that "In a true YA novel, the main characters will be changed forever by the end of the book." I've long struggled with a real definition of YA novels, but I think Wein hits the nail on the head here — dynamic characters are the single most important aspect of YA novels, whether they take place in history (like Code Name Verity) or the future (like my own Across the Universe novels).
And what greater change can a person experience than love? This is why love stories feature so predominantly in YA books, from dystopians and science fiction to contemporary and historical. Love is the game-changer of life.

In an interview with VIBE’s January issue, Taylor Swift opened up about her love life.
“Independence is something I’ve always needed, from when I was young," she says, "but I love the idea of romance and falling in love. I’ve never really had a long relationship. So that’s something I think about for the future. It’s an interesting part of my personality: Part of me just wants to be alone .... Sagittarians are really independent, and we like our space. We’re drawn to love but battle for that need for independence."
In another recent interview with Parade, she revealed: People think I want to get married really young - I don't know why. I'm a romantic person, but that doesn't mean I want to miss out on being in my young 20s."
Despite writing about it so prolifically, Swift claims not to know much about love. "I tend to think things are love and then look back and reevaluate."
