Selena Gomez: Bieber is not my 'little brother'

Justin Bieber is slightly younger than his reported girlfriend, Selena Gomez, but that doesn't mean she views him as her little brother.

Visiting the "Ellen DeGeneres Show" on Tuesday, the 18-year-old Disney actress backtracked on prior remarks she'd made about the 17-year-old singer the last time she was on the show.

“He’s little," Gomez previously told DeGeneres about rumors that she was dating the teen sensation. "He’s like my little brother. That’s weird to me.”

But on Tuesday Gomez was singing a different tune.

"He’s like your little brother?" DeGeneres asked, to which Gomez responded, "Great thing to say, huh?"

The pair then exchanged quips with Gomez saying Bieber is "sweet."

"He is," DeGeneres said. "He’s sweet as can be. But he’s not like your little brother, is he? No, he’s not. And he’s a fantastic guy. You can’t try to hide that forever. I know you all were sneaking around but that’s crazy. You’re both huge stars and you can’t hide from us. "

"I didn’t lie to you," Gomez said. "I didn’t though. I’ll say that. "

"No, you didn’t blatantly lie," DeGeneres responded. "A little brother is not someone you want to date. "

"Well, no,"  Gomez said. "That would be weird. "

DeGeneres later gifted Gomez with a pillow bearing the Biebs' image.

    She should be my girlfriend instead. Id be super nice to her and be in awe of her and stuff since i am a regular guy. She really does look cute when she has her hair fixed with the bangs.

      Well, if their comments got a reaction from you, they obviously did their job. It's not the "way to go" it's just a means to express an OPINION. Deal with it.

      yeah... it wasn't a slight against me, last time I checked I'm not Justin Beiber. Their "job" is to get at him. I'm not a fan of his by anymeans, I was just commenting on the unimagitive insults that seem to be on repeat. And I like that phrase you used "its a way to express an opinion", nah, its a way to spread ignorence and hate. But... you say tomato, I say bigotry.

    I feel bad for these young actors, they just do what their handlers tell them to do. But, then again, I don't feel to bad – they are rich and famous after all......

      I was with you all the way up until purple. Though, if it's true and Bieber likes purple, I may just have to change my mind!!!

      He has to be. He's just in the closet so all the pedophilic moms out there who go crazy over him will still buy his music.
