Though I'm most certainly running out of ways to self-referentially hash out hundreds of words about grainy photos of total strangers engaging in inane dating activities, I will again do my best with this one.


So you know that thing people do where they smash their mouths together while one of them wears a hockey helmet? I don't know much about hockey, but photos are circulating via the usual suspects showing Selena Gomez and noted Marilyn Manson discussion topic Justin Bieber doing that.


In a noticeably humorless article from E! News, Gomez is described as Bieber's "No. 1 hockey fan." Bieber apparently had an ice hockey match in Los Angeles Wednesday, inspiring the presence of Gomez and a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. In an ideal pop culture universe, we would spend the rest of this article talking about the dog, but I digress.

I now invite you to look at one of the pictures in question, then continue below for some arbitrary words about it.

In a separate and only slightly less humorless report from TMZ, Bieber and Gomez's none-of-our-business behavior was described as a sort of "re-coupling." Also, TMZ tragically included a puck/pucker pun in their report.


Gomez's split from the Weeknd shook humankind to its core late last month, inspiring arguably some of the greatest articles ever written. According to another one of those humor-free reports, the breakup was initiated by the Weeknd. The breakup, however, was—according to people who couldn't possibly know for sure—a smooth one and the two are still friends. Glad we cleared that up.
