Don't ditch those Jelena hopes just yet, folks—it seems Justin Bieber might be on a not-so-subtle mission to win Selena's heart back. Let's consider the evidence: 1) He's said, a couple of times now, that he will always love her (opens in new tab). 2) The two teamed up for a duet (opens in new tab) that leaked, post-breakup (still close, eh?). 3) He's now gone on record that he isn't against reuniting with his on-again, off-again, write-a-song-about-it flame.

While appearing on Ellen, the 21-year-old star was grilled about everything from Peen Gate (opens in new tab) to his current love life—he outright denied dating model Jayde Pierce, blushing all the while—but when asked whether he'd ever get back together with Gomez, his answer was refreshing. 

"Maybe," he said, according to Us Weekly (opens in new tab). "We have a lot of history together so it could possibly happen. I think we're both just on our own journeys, figuring ourselves out and once we've figured ourselves out we could maybe come together and make an awesome duo. Or she'll find someone awesome and I'll find someone awesome. I just want her to be happy, honestly."

Mature, well-reasoned, and a bit romantic. Your move, Selena.
