Let’s Talk About Jelena

Let’s talk Jelena, shall we?

I should probably begin by saying if you were lost by the word Jelena in the first sentence… you’ve most likely been living under a rock for the past few years. Similar to the term Brangelina, Jelena has been dubbed the couple name for Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez since their romance began. The unnecessary drama between Jelena shippers (a.k.a. relationship supporters) and Jelena haters seems to be never-ending. The drama arose once again when Bieber began playing a duet he presumably wrote and recorded with once girlfriend Selena Gomez for fans.

Of course before this, other sparks of drama here and there have occurred. A few of Selena’s Instagram posts consisting Bieber’s lyrics, the pair being spotted out and about in Texas, a caption reading “Most elegant princess in the world,” and two dance videos that Justin later deleted are only a few of these “sparks” allowing two fandoms to go nuts.

Tweets have been thrown left and right as crazed Beliebers and Selenators question if the lucky fans that have heard “Unfamiliar” are telling the truth. Though rumors of a Jelena duet have been flying for a while due to suspicious “rares” websites popping up, it is now confirmed that yes, indeed, Justin and Selena have recorded a song together. A few lucky fans caught Bieber out in Toronto where he played two new songs, one of them being the duet with Gomez. According to tweets from Beliebers, “Unfamiliar” mostly has Gomez and only a cameo from Bieber.

In addition to “Unfamiliar,” a five second clip of Gomez singing the line “I can’t seem to choose what to do,” was released with the premise that Bieber makes an appearance some time on the song. Thanks to previous songs released, such as “Love Will Remember” by Gomez and “Nothing Like Us” by Bieber, we’ve been given a small glimpse into their relationship. To say the least, the probability of “Unfamiliar” being personal to Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez is very high.

Something important to take away from this “Breaking Jelena News” is to remember that this is no time to hate or look down upon decisions made by Justin and Selena. Obviously music means a great deal to both of them and combining their talents is simply the pairing of two extremely creative minds.

If and when “Unfamiliar” is released, I would suggest that you listen to it with an open mind. Do not label music when you haven’t heard it. Do what the artist would want you to do. Ask yourself if Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez would appreciate hateful messages and comments just because of a song. I know for a fact that the only comments accepted on Team Bieber are the positive ones. Constructive criticism is nice to hear, but going out of your way to degrade music for no reason is absurd.

As usual, we welcome all thoughts on the possibility of “Unfamiliar” to be shared with WeKnowTheDJ. Tweet us your kind and well-constructed thoughts at @weknowthedj.
