Victoria’s Secret Angel Barbara Palvin: I Did Not Hook Up With Justin Bieber (EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW)

Don’t call Barbara Palvin the other woman.

Some two months after making headlines with Justin Bieber, thanks to a backstage photo taken around the same time the singer first called it quits with Selena Gomez, the Victoria’s Secret model is speaking out for the first time about those romance rumors.

Palvin, 19, tells Celebuzz exclusively that she and the Canadian pop star were never romantically involved, despite reports to the contrary.

“You know how the drama started — Selena retweeted the picture,” Palvin said on Saturday.

“I’m okay to talk about it because I know there’s nothing. It’s ridiculous how this got to the news.”

Palvin, who spent part of her weekend at the InStyle Beauty Lounge in Beverly Hills, Calif., representing L’Oreal, says she was just “hanging out” with Bieber, 18, during the fashion show last fall.

“That was it . . . that’s why it was so weird. They thought I caused a big drama, their break-up.”

“They,” — devoted “Jelena” fans — erupted in response to the Twitter photo, causing Palvin to clear the air.

“hey everyone. please calm down. he is all yours!!” she wrote.

Gomez, 20, also took to Twitter at the time, posting a photo of her beau, a friend and Palvin together with just an ellipses: “…”

The Hungarian stunner explained on Saturday that her run-in with Bieber was an innocent fan moment.

“I wanted to meet him real bad,” she said. “I watched his movie [Justin Bieber: Never Say Never] and I was like, ‘He’s such a cool kid, I want to meet him.’ And then when I did at the [Victoria’s Secret] show we met and of course we had a conversation and then I took the picture with him.”

Just days later the two fueled the romance fire when they were spotted catching The Lion King on Broadway. According to Palvin, it was anything but a date.

“It was my sister’s first time in New York and we so wanted to go to Broadway, but there were no more tickets,” she explained. “I just came up and was telling him, ‘My sister is here, but she’s sad because we can’t go to Broadway, no more tickets.’ And he was like, ‘Well, I can get you one.’ And his friends came . . . like six people and then me, my sister and agent. So friends.”

And as the curtain call came, so did their night on the town.

“So we were just like okay, nice to meet you, that was fun, and then bye,” she said.

But the headlines didn’t stop there.

One month later, Palvin made the news again, after tweeting a photo of herself in front of a tour bus in Florida — reportedly belonging to the Biebs. But the model says that was not only not his tour bus — they never met up in the Sunshine State.

“We didn’t hang out, that’s the funny part,” she said, laughing.

“It was so funny when I read we were hanging out in Miami and I was also wearing his t-shirt. Dude, that’s my t-shirt!” Palvin added.

“And you see the mobile homes in the back [of my Twitter photo] — when you’re shooting on location you have mobile homes to do the hair and makeup and dress. And they put everything together like that’s Bieber’s tour bus, that’s Bieber’s shirt. I was like, ‘No!’”

Palvin admits the speculation made her angry because she already has a boyfriend in her hometown.

“They [the media] gave me a real hard time with this with my boyfriend. They also put him in the press and he’s not a celebrity or anything,” she said. “Him being back home [in Hungary] with a normal life and everybody is like, ‘You’re girlfriend is dating Justin.’ It’s very hard for him.

“It made me pissed, but there’s always a dark side of this business.”

If there’s any contact with camp Bieber at all, Palvin says, it’s between her and the “Boyfriend” singer’s manager Scooter Braun.

“We don’t stay in touch. I more talk with his manager Scooter. His father is Hungarian so there is this Hungarian connection and I talk with him.”

Palvin even reached out when news broke about the photographer who was killed while following Bieber’s Ferarri on New Year’s Day.

“When I heard that the paparazzi died in L.A. I called him [Scooter] and I told him to also tell Justin that maybe this is not a good start of the year, but the rest is going to be better.

“So I’m more in contact with Scooter than with Bieber.”

With the young crooner single again after reportedly making-up — and breaking-up — for a second time with Gomez, we’ll have to wait and see who his next lucky lady will be.

What do you think — would Barbara and Justin make a good couple? Tell us below.

Was Justin Bieber Too Needy for Selena Gomez?

Another day, another detail in the Jelena split drama. The latest? Apparently Justin Bieber may have been too needy for Selena Gomez. Wait, what?!

The pair, whose most recent split went down on New Year’s Eve in Mexico, was reportedly initiated by Gomez. If you recall, she stormed off from their vacation early. In a private jet. Must be nice!

It wasn’t just Biebs’ “neediness” that bugged her. Apparently he also had a wandering eye, something that’s been reported more than once. A pal told Radar Online, “Justin is super needy and can be a big baby around Selena. It’s hard for him to make real friends because he likes the temporary attention of strangers, but didn’t realize how it hurt Selena. Selena didn’t feel Justin was respectful of their relationship,” the friend added. “She was constantly catching him in positions with other girls that would make her uncomfortable. She would get super jealous.”

Yikes! Sounds like this breakup may be the one that sticks … maybe. The friend insisted, “Selena absolutely won’t get back with Justin unless he makes some drastic changes in his life.”

Last week it was revealed that the pair tried just about everything they could to work it out, but it just wouldn’t. “Selena is Justin’s first love and he’s still young enough that he desperately tries to make it work,” a source said. “But Selena is mature enough to just know when to end it and be realistic that it isn’t working.”

That won’t stop us from crossing our fingers. We love these two!

Watch Selena Gomez + Simon Cowell Read Mean Tweets About Themselves

Since Twitter is the No. 1 way to insult celebrities directly, late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel once again asked celebs to read mean tweets about themselves. This time, Selena Gomez, Simon Cowell, Jessica Biel, Anderson Cooper and Dr. Phil, among others, were invited to read react to mean tweets.

Gomez’s music was insulted while Cowell was called an expletive. No surprise there. It was funny when he got fake choked up over it.

Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez Split For Good: Report

It looks like this on-again, off-again couple is once again off. US Weekly is reporting that Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have broken up for good. There were reports of a split between the power couple back in November, but they were seen together and reunited quickly after that.

Apparently, the two jetted off to Mexico for a romantic New Year’s Eve, but they had a blow out fight which led them to both leave early, on December 30. Their source said, ”They had another huge fight, and Selena won’t forgive him,” adding, “He’s been really down about the breakup.” One reason behind the split, their source claims, is that he’s a bit of a ”bad influence.” Photos of Justin smoking what appears to be marijuana surfaced over the weekend, just after the alleged break up.

Another indication of a split is the fact that the two spent NYE separately. Selena spent the evening at a house party in L.A. with some friends, while Justin’s NYE was spent with rapper Lil Twist at a L.A. night club called Couture. There were also reports that Justin was seen flirting with multiple girls throughout the evening. Coincidentally  Lil Twist was the person driving Justin’s Ferrari when a paparazzo was killed in pursuit of the vehicle on New Year’s Day.

While a reunion between the couple remains to be seen, there is some good news in Justin’s world — Entertainment Weekly has confirmed that the “Beauty and a Beat” singer will not only host, but perform on Saturday Night Live‘s February 9 episode.

What do you think about their possible split? Sound off in the comments.

James Franco Spoofs Justin Bieber (VIDEO)

Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery. Or is it?

Spring Breakers star James Franco posted a video of himself, alongside Pretty Little Liars actress Ashley Benson, with the former impersonating pop star Justin Bieber.

Franco, 34, hams it up for the camera, singing the Biebs’ “Boyfriend,” while Benson dances provocatively around him.

What makes this video controversial?

Franco and Benson, 23, are starring in Spring Breakers – out in US theaters March 8 — alongside Beiber’s on-and-off-again flame Selena Gomez.

Is it a dig at their costar? Use the comments to chime in below.

The release of the video, albeit after Franco deleted it, comes at an awkward time for Bieber, who is currently weather a storm after photos emerged of him smoking whatwhat appears to be a marijuana blunt at a Jan. 2 party in a Newport Beach, Calif., hotel.

Though his team has not addressed the controversy, 18-year-old Bieber seemed to touch on the topic on Twitter. “Everyday growing and learning. trying to be better,” he wrote. “u get knocked down, u get up.”
