Justin Bieber says Selena Gomez is “an amazing person”

For the Canadian singer propelled to stardom in less than two years, the Disney star is someone really cool.

“She’s really cool. She’s an amazing person,” said Bieber, who however refused to elaborate on the rumors saying he and Selena are a couple.

“I think that people are always gonna be interested in my personal life … but I gotta keep some things to myself,” Justin concluded. “I’m just having fun being a teenager.”

The two were spotted particularly close during his recent trip to Miami and previously exiting a Philadelphia pancake restaurant arm-in-arm.

“It was pancakes. Who doesn’t like pancakes?” Gomez said in an interview with MTV News at the time.

In addition, she spoke about the friendship she shares with the 16-year-old.

“I love Justin. When he first started to come over from Canada, his manager contacted me and he just said that he would like to meet me and he was just such a good kid,” she told MTV News in February. “And I feel like a big sister now, ’cause I want to protect him. So I’m always very cautious with him, but he is so talented and he’s so sweet, so that just started us wanting to work together. Now he’s just become one of my good friends.”
