Justin Bieber-Selena Gomez fans have new reason to rejoice.
The “What Do You Mean” singer is everywhere these days promoting his new album, Purpose, and he stopped by the Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday to talk about various stuff, including his songs, dating situation, and of course, his past relationship with Selena Gomez.
DeGeneres went right for the jugular and asked Bieber about his recent trip to Bora Bora, in which he was photographed spending time with British model and blogger Jayde Pierce.
The Canadian pop star had been seen numerous times in the company of Pierce after his breakup with Gomez, igniting rumors that they are dating.

However, both Bieber and Pierce have denied the rumors, claiming that there is nothing romantic going on. “I’m not dating anyone,” Bieber told DeGeneres. “She’s just a friend.”
The Emmy-winning talk show host then brought up the subject of his much-publicized breakup with his “first love” Selena Gomez in the latter half of the interview.
After admitting that three of the songs in his new album were inspired by his relationship with Gomez, DeGeneres went on to ask him what they were. “’What Do You Mean, ‘Sorry’ a little bit, and ‘Mark My Words’,” he said.
When asked about the possibility of them getting back together, Bieber confessed that it could happen. “Maybe. I mean, we have a lot of history together, so I’m sure it could possibly happen,” he explained. “But I think we’re both just on our own journeys of figuring ourselves out. Maybe once [we do that] we can come together and make an awesome duo. Or she’ll find someone awesome and I’ll find someone awesome.” He ended the discussion by saying that he wishes Gomez to be happy.
DeGeneres also questioned Bieber about a controversial photo of himself in the nude while vacationing in Bora Bora. His privates were fully exposed in the photo, which made the rounds on the Internet just a couple of days after it had been taken.

He told DeGeneres that while he was mortified by the news of the nude photo, he thought “it wasn’t as bad” as what he had expected it to look like.
“The first thing I saw was the censored one and it had like the black thing over it,” said Bieber to DeGeneres. “And I was like, ‘Oh my goodness. I don’t know what this is going to look like, and then it wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be. It wasn’t as terrible.”
