Selena Gomez has recently been spotted without her purity ring. Is she getting serious with rumored boyfriend Justin Bieber? Or maybe Selena's older best friend Taylor Swift is unintentionally influencing the Disney star.
As Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber continue to dodge questions about their rumored romance, more evidence that Selena does have a special someone has been brought to attention. The "Wizards of Waverly Place" star isn't wearing her purity ring anymore. Could it be that she's decided it's time to act more grown up?
Selena Gomez, who has continued to proclaim what a good role model she is, may be taking a page out of Taylor Swift's book. Swift, 21, who is also a good role model for younger fans, is now dating nearly 30-year-old Jake Gyllenhaal.
According to the New York Daily News, Gomez received her purity ring as a gift from her father two years ago. "He went to the church and got it blessed. He actually used me as an example for other kids," Gomez revealed to Extra about her ring. "I'm going to keep my promise to myself, to my family, and to God."
Could it be that Selena Gomez is changing her mind about the values the purity ring symbolizes? Or maybe she just forgot to slip it on that day and the media is blowing it up for no reason. Perhaps it's best friend Taylor Swift's example that has Gomez on the fence about her beliefs. Whatever the reason, a lot of Justin Bieber fans may get angry if Selena's ring goes missing and the two come out as a couple.
