If you’ve been trapped in some sort of anti-celebrity news vortex for the past couple weeks, then you’ve probably missed what is becoming one of the most passive aggressive public break-ups of all time.
We’re talking, of course, about Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez. Since their split, the former pair have been going at each other’s throats in the most indirect way possible.
Most recently, Selena tweeted a photo of herself kicking back in a studio. It seemed to suggest that she was recording a break-up kiss-off song to JB.
“It's a sad, sad serenade @rock_mafia,” she captioned the photo.

“I've been telling people I'm definitely a little bit more sassy now ... I'm a little bit more mouthy,” she said. “I'm having a lot of fun expressing everything that I'm feeling.”
Meanwhile, Justin is just as content grabbing his fans' boobs.
