Have you ever wondered why there are so many pictures of Justin Bieber and girlfriend Selena Gomez kissing in public? Ellen DeGeneres has. And so, when Ellen had the 17-year-old pop superstar on her show Tuesday, she didn't hesitate to ask (and we're paraphrasing here): What's the deal with all the public smoochin', Biebs? Watch the video below for young Justin's "awww"-inducing response!
"Speaking of mistletoe, it seems that you and Selena find mistletoe everywhere you go," Ellen said -- using talk of Biebs' Christmas album Under the Mistletoe (in stores now) to not-so-subtly segue onto the topic of PDA. "You're kissing on her all the time. That's so sweet. You're just crazy in love, aren't you?" Ellen continued, as a highlight reel displayed numerous photos of Biebs planting kisses on his 19-year-old best girl.
"She has very kissable cheeks," Bieber replied, smiling shyly. "I feel like it's like I only live once, and it sucks to always have to hide it. So I just kind of do me, I guess."
If there were any women out there who weren't already head-over-heels for the affable Biebs, this display of romantic honesty should remedy that.
