Selena Gomez is concerned about her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber after his Instagram post Monday in which he slammed award shows, according to Hollywood Life. Bieber, who performed and won Top Male Artist award at Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards, called such shows “hollow.”

“Selena isn’t quite sure what happened to Justin during the Billboard Music Awards, but she is concerned. She’s worried that maybe he’s pushing himself too hard and is glad that he has a bit of a break now,” an insider told Hollywood Life.

“He seemed fine the last time they communicated, but Selena knows he can be hard on himself. She’s not angry at him, she feels for him and hopes he’s surrounded by supportive friends right now,” the source told the entertainment website.


I don't know about these award shows.. No disrespect to anybody at any of the shows or the people running it. Nothing but love for you guys and your support. But I don't feel good when I'm there nor after. I try to think of it as a celebration but can't help feeling like people are rating and grading my performance. A lot of people in the audience there to be seem worried about how much camera time they will get or who they can network with. When I'm doing a regular show I feel they are there for the right reasons and to strictly have a good time! But these award shows seem so hollow. I get the premise is to award people for their accomplishments, but is it really? Because when I look in the audience I see a bunch of fake smiles so that when the camera hits them they look happy. Sure there are people truly proud of others so I don't want to knock them I'm just looking at the vast majority. I just think to myself if I'm living my purpose I want the reward to be fulfillment. I'm getting awarded for the things that I'm doing and not for who I am which is understandable I know it would probably be hard to calculate and award someone's spirit lol. But When I do get these awards the temptation of putting my worth in what I do is so hard to fight!!!I am privileged and honored to be recognized by my peers in but in these settings I can't feel the recognition. There's an authenticity missing that I crave! And I wonder does anybody else.. Sorry not sorry about grammar it's not my strong point

Bieber and Gomez, who were in an on-again-off-again relationship, were reported to have spent time together at a hotel in Beverly Hills last month, and the 22-year-old “Sorry” singer has been on his “best behavior” to win Gomez back.

However, the former couple also reportedly likes to play mind games with each other because of which they have not got back together. Neither of the stars has reacted to the rumors surrounding them.
