Hailey Baldwin Once Hardcore Shipped Justin Bieber + Selena Gomez In Awkward Resurfaced Tweets
Because Hailey Baldwin was born in the year 1996, and thus, basically grew up with social media, pretty much all of her early teendom has been memorialized on Twitter — including some tweets that are, in the wake of her newly confirmed engagement, highly, highly awkward.
You see, not long ago, Baldwin was a hardcore Belieber. She tweeted at the pop star on numerous occasions (she apparently thought his photos from Complex were "sick dude" and deeply related to his opinions about how good cereal is), and back in 2009, when they first met, dragged her then-13-year-old self to the Today show at 5 a.m. to see him. Most importantly, though, she also totally shipped Bieber and his on-again, off-again ex-girlfriend, Selena Gomez.
"I don't care what anyone says but Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez together is the definition of a teenage dream #word," she wrote in a since-deleted tweet, according to The Cut. Extra emphasis on the #word. Ah, 2011, what a time to be alive.
One year later, she was still stanning, and maybe even a little...jealous?
"Seriously though. [Gomez] is beyond flawless and he's ya know he's Bieber. They are the perfect relationship.. -___- forever alone," she said in a tweet from January 2012 that is very much still up.
And the next month, she expressed disappointment about not seeing the couple at the Vanity Fair Oscars party together.
"I gotta say I was really looking forward to seeing what color coordination Jelena was gonna do for this years VF party.. #sigh #ohwell."
Cut to 2018, and Baldwin is no longer "forever alone": She and the Biebs, who briefly dated between 2015 and 2016, got engaged in the Bahamas over the weekend after a month-long PDA tour. My, how the tables have turned!
