Selena Gomez isn’t making any promises about her relationship with Justin Bieber, quite the opposite in fact.
The 18-year-old songstress was photographed last week with her 16-year-old pop star “friend,” but without a very important accessory — her promise ring.
Two years ago, the Disney starlet got her father to buy her the purity bling which signified her vow to abstain from sex until marriage.
“He went to the church and got it blessed. He actually used me as an example for other kids,” Gomez told Extra at the time. “I’m going to keep my promise to myself, to my family, and to God.”
But last weekend Gomez was seen entering Bieber’s tour bus in Miami without the chastity symbol on her finger, according to TMZ.com.
Paparazzi snapped the rumored love birds on Saturday holding hands and laughing. Though the teen couple ran from the cameramen, the photographers later caught them embracing on Bieber’s tour bus following his show.
Earlier this month, the duo sparked romance rumors when they were photographed at a Philadelphia International House of Pancakes, in town to perform at Q102’s annual Jingle Ball.
Gomez later told mtv.com that Bieber was “one of my best friends” and their outing together was “all innocent.”
I wasn’t sure what exactly a purity ring does so I looked it up on Wikipedia:
Purity rings (also known as chastity rings or abstinence rings) originated in the United States in the 1990s among Christian-affiliated sexual abstinence groups. Wearing a purity ring is typically accompanied by a religious vow to practice abstinence until marriage.
So it’s something you wear as a promise to not lose your virginity until you’re married. So if future pictures show Selena no longer wears her purity ring then does it mean she’s now ready to have sex or does it mean she already lost her virginity? How does that work?
