Has Selena Gomez finally moved on from Justin Bieber? According to Us Weekly, the 20-year-old pop star has been "hooking up" with British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran after mutual pal Taylor Swift recently played matchmaker. Friends are even saying Selena is enjoying the "escape" from all of the Justin Bieber drama.
But is the "Come & Get It" singer really done with her perpetually on-off boyfriend, Biebs? Here's five reasons why Sheeran may be a better match for Selena.
He dominates her playlist
When a fan at New Music Live asked Selena what the most-played song on her iPod is, the singer didn't hesitate before replying, "Any Ed Sheeran song." Wow, any? That covers a lot of material -- and leaves little room for "Beauty and the Beat."
He has a good reputation
While Justin doles out inane comments about Anne Frank being a Belieber, Sheeran is talking about things that actually make sense. He told Sugarscape: "I've always said that I wanna be known as the nicest and hardest working guy in the industry, so if I could be known as that that would be brilliant. It isn't very scandalous, but I'm gonna eventually settle down and get married, so being the world's best lover is gonna be saved for one person, so that's not necessarily the most important thing for me. I'd like to have a good reputation in the industry."
He's already thinking about his future family
According to The Sun, Sheeran could even be ready to settle down in the near future. He recently said, "I'm renovating a property where I grew up. This is going to be the family house for when I have kids and stuff. I'm planting a lot of trees. Actually it's a farm I'm turning into a woodland." That's a far cry from Bieber, who's busy terrorizing the neighborhood children with his hot rod.
He doesn't drive leopard print cars - or any cars, for that matter
JB seems to get into a lot of trouble when he's behind the wheel -- again, just ask his neighbors -- but Ed Sheeran doesn't have that problem. According to AOL Music, the 22-year-old singer revealed, "My manager doesn't let me have credit cards as I do weird things. He has to approve everything I buy. One day I said, 'I think I'll go and buy some cars today', and he goes, 'Right, but you don't drive." Hey, as long as he can afford a driver, who cares if he lacks a license?
He already has Taylor's seal of approval
Let's face it, if Selena's BFF Taylor Swift introduced her to Ed, then she clearly approves of a love connection between the two. Not the case with Bieber. Last month, Taylor made her feelings on Selena's sometime-guy clearly known at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards when she rolled her eyes in disgust and made a nasty face as Selena kissed the "Boyfriend" singer. We'd love to see her reaction to a Sheeran-Selena kiss.
