Justin Bieber might not be dating Selena Gomez anymore, but that doesn't mean the “Baby” singer is through fawning over the former Disney Channel star. Both Bieber, 21, and Gomez, 22, were in attendance at the 2015 Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York Monday, and apparently Bieber was a fan of Gomez’s look at the star-studded event.
TMZ released a video Tuesday of Bieber getting into his car after leaving the Met Gala. After taking a few pictures with fans and answering a few questions from the paparazzi, the singer gave some commentary about his ex-girlfriend’s appearance at the charity event.
“Hey, Selena looked gorgeous at the Met Ball,” Bieber told the crowd outside of his car before pulling away.
The pair has been broken up for over year, but it seems like Bieber still has a thing for his ex.
Who can blame the pop star? Gomez impressed at the Met Gala with a stunning silk white dress with black tassel straps. According to Hollywood Life, Vera Wang was the designer of Gomez’s glamorous number, which featured a plunging v-neckline over a silk white bandeau. Gomez pulled the whole outfit together wearing white poppy flowers in her hair and dark red lipstick.
Bieber, on the other hand, made headlines at the event for -- surprise! -- breaking the rules. Flouting the gala's no-selfie rule, the singer snapped a few personal photos that later showed up on his Instagram account. Other celebrities such as Kanye West and Katy Perry, joined Bieber in ignoring the selfie ban, according to E! Online.
For fans hoping Bieber and Gomez get back together, the drive-by compliment might be a hopeful sign for the couple’s reconciliation. Then again, the shout-out could just be Bieber being Bieber.
