Selena Gomez has a type, and that type is "pop star." Before dating Justin Bieber, the "Come and Get It" singer was in a two-year relationship with Nick Jonas. Now rumor has it that she's hooking up with British crooner Ed Sheeran.
The redheaded "A Team" singer, as you may recall, was rumored to be dating Selena's best friend Taylor Swift earlier this year. (They both denied it.) Now he and Swift are touring together -- and it seems that the "Red" singer may have played matchmaker.
"They are hooking up!" an Us Weekly source said of Sheeran and Gomez, who were reportedly introduced by Swift over Memorial Day weekend.
We're not surprised that Taylor is helping Selena move on from Justin Bieber. The country-pop star has openly disapproved of their on-again, off-again relationship. Remember that face she made at the Billboard Awards? No? Let us refresh your memory with our favorite GIF ever:
Seems like Gomez came around to Taylor's point of view. Says the Us source: "She got sick of having to take care of Justin like he was her child. This is a nice escape from the drama."
Sheeran, 22, is no doubt more mature than 19-year-old Bieber. Sure, Gomez is only 20 -- but while Bieber seems determined to stay an obnoxious adolescent forever, his ex-girlfriend is trying to move forward. Sheeran may be just a rebound, or just a rumor -- but hopefully he's helped her figure out that she can do better than Bieber.
