Know how HollywoodLife just makes up stuff and calls it reporting? Well, in case you hadn’t noticed, the witless webloid has somehow gotten even worse in recent weeks, posting a series of stories about Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber that make no sense whatsoever. It’s all part of what can only be HollywoodLife’s new strategy to become the absolute worst entertainment outlet in the world!

Earlier this month, HollywoodLife spent some time spreading rumors that Gomez would spend 2015 single unless Bieber “whisked [her] away on a romantic holiday vacation and gave her a promise ring.” Repeatedly, the site hyped this imaginary end-of-the-year deadline for Gomez and Bieber to get back together, even though neither Gomez or Bieber was showing any sign of reconciling.

Then came a flood of contradictory HollywoodLife stories about how he is with Hailey Baldwin, or maybe he isn’t with Hailey Baldwin, and maybe he wants to win Gomez back, or maybe he’s moved on… it just never ends. Last we saw, HollywoodLife was practically giddy about Baldwin and Gomez supposedly “ruining” Christmas for Gomez.

Anyway, the latest HollywoodLife report is a real gem. The headline reads, “Selena Gomez & Justin Bieber: Why She’s Not Taking His Calls.” And why is she allegedly ignoring these purported calls? HollywoodLife seems confused on that point.

“Justin may be trying to contact Selena, but she is refusing to answer his calls!” reports the webloid. “Though Selena is in fact suffering without Justin, she is making every effort to put him out of her mind… Selena is trying to put the Justin drama to rest, and has reportedly not taken any of his calls, a source close to Selena revealed to EXCLUSIVELY.”

Wait, what about all those stories about how she wanted to be whisked away over the holidays? Oh, and what about all those stories about how Bieber supposedly destroyed the holidays for Gomez by hanging out with Baldwin instead of her? And the talk about how “obsessed” Gomez allegedly is with Bieber. Could it be that HollywoodLife… made it all up? Here’s the sad, boring story HollywoodLife hates to admit is true: Bieber generally seems happy. Gomez generally seems happy. There’s no drama or destruction going on this Christmas season. We feel bad for the HollywoodLife Grinches.
