Both Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez triumphed at the Kids Choice Awards. Although the teen dream, who’s still rocking Europe on his My World Tour, won his awards in absentia, his Disney star lady love was able to accept hers in person.Â After much speculation about whether or not she would bring a platonic “companion” to the KCA show, the Biebs’ favorite Latin Girl chose to attend the ceremony alone.Â As always, she looked absolutely beautiful when she accepted the “hotly contested” award for Favorite TV Actress.Â Â She thanked almost everyone–except her boyfriend Justin Bieber.Â
Yes, it seems that on her night of triumph, Selena Gomez forgot to thank her famous official beau .Â Or even to mention him.Â As she clutched the coveted orange blimp she’d won for her work on the Disney Channel series The Wizards of Waverly Place, she thanked almost everyone else–her family, friends, cast mates, and fans–but the name Justin Bieber never exited her lips.Â Nor did she cryptically allude to him.Â She didn’t even discreetly drop a hint about him.Â It was as if he was literally out of mind because he happened to be out of sight.Â Â Of course, Selena has always practiced discretion when speaking publicly about her relationship with her Never Say Never guy, but her behavior at the KCA show seemed to go beyond the call of duty.Â Did Selena, like Hilary Swank at the 2000 Academy Awards, simply forget to thank her significant other in the excitement of the moment?Â Or was her omission a deliberate diss?Â Â
There is a third possibility.Â Perhaps Selena neither forgot nor dissed the Biebs.Â Maybe she just didn’t want to incur more Internet negativity about their relationship from his fans.
Oh well, even if his girlfriend forgot about him, the KCA remembered him twice.Â Justin Bieber won awards for Favorite Male Singer and Favorite Song,Â Baby.
