Justin Bieber NOT Skipping Grammys Over The Weeknd Performing, Despite Report
Justin Bieber is NOT skipping the Grammys because Selena Gomez’s boyfriend The Weeknd is performing, despite inaccurate webloid speculation. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust this claim. We’re told it’s “B.S.”
It was recently reported that Bieber will most likely not attend this year’s Grammys, despite being nominated for four major awards, because he doesn’t feel the show is culturally relevant. But HollywoodLife has now come up with the bogus theory that the singer is boycotting the show because he doesn’t want to run into his ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend. “Selena and The Weeknd will hit the after-parties together,” says the site, “and it definitely wouldn’t easy for The Biebs to see the love of his life with her new beau!”
But Gossip Cop checked in with a reliable source close to Bieber, who exclusively assures us that Gomez and The Weeknd have absolutely nothing to do with why he’s bailing on the show. We’re told the webloid’s speculation otherwise is complete “B.S.” In fact, Bieber expressed his uncertainty about awards shows last year in a lengthy Instagram post. The singer revealed, “I don’t feel good when I’m there nor after,” and went on to call awards ceremonies “hollow.”
Of course, we’re not surprised by the repeatedly discredited website’s false story. Gossip Cop recently busted HollywoodLife for wrongly reporting that Gomez asked Bieber for his blessing to date The Weeknd. There was no truth to that tale, and the same goes for this latest one.
