The Weirdest Celeb Responses To Justin Bieber & Hailey Baldwin’s Engagement

It’s been nearly 48 hours since the news of Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin’s engagement broke, and I’m slowly wrapping my mind around it. Young love is in the air, and I guess my allergy medicine is finally kicking in. Yesterday, we brought you a breakdown of Justin Bieber’s Instagram announcement, which was a hell of a lot to process. The photo currently has over 10 million likes, which is fully what I expect when I eventually get engaged. The amount of likes is staggering, but the comment section really has some celebrity gems. Here are a few of my favorites, along with one truly special tweet. This relationship is the gift that keeps on giving, so buckle up.

Paris Hilton & Yolanda Hadid

Paris Hilton just knows exactly what I need, and she fucking delivers. Apparently “congratulations” was too big of a word to spell, so she decided to go with the simpler “congrats.” It’s okay girl, spelling is hard. However, she failed to delete her original comment, where she couldn’t spell “congratulations” correctly. Honestly, how did autocorrect not catch this? Whatever, I’m happy about it. Congrarulations Paris, you’ve made my day. Please also note Yolanda Hadid, former Real Housewife and mother of Bella and Gigi, who is also happy about the news. Will Bella and The Weeknd be our next surprise engagement? Stay tuned.

Marshmello & Diddy

My favorite thing about this screenshot is that both Marshmello and Diddy call Justin “brother.” Look at his influence, just wow. Honestly, I always forget that Justin has actual hip-hop connections, dating back to when Usher basically gave birth to him circa 2008. Good times, good times.

Ryan Good (& Hailey Baldwin)

Okay, so idk who Ryan Good is, but this is a good find. This is why @commentsbycelebs is so important. Okay, so Ryan Good is actually like a producer or something, who used to date Ashley Benson and obviously has a lot of famous friends. Irrelevant, but I’m really glad that Hailey shares my feelings about the mustache. Like, I’m attracted to the mustache in a gross, confusing way, but if Justin doesn’t shave it for the wedding then I’m gonna jump off a fucking bridge. It’s fine, I’m fine.

Jessica Alba, Jessica Alba, & Jessica Alba

God, I just love when celebrities are bad at technology. Unlike Paris Hilton, Jessica Alba didn’t make any unfortunate typos in her comment, but she still managed to post it three different times. I love it. The comment itself is actually a little weird, because it doesn’t actually mention the fact that Justin is engaged, or that Hailey even exists. This comment is like the equivalent of when you ask if someone likes your outfit and they just say “you’re so pretty!” Like, thanks I guess, but what about the outfit? I’m also in love with the Bieber fan account popping off about Selena Gomez at the bottom.

Ariana Grande

I love Ariana Grande, but she might need to learn to take a joke. The original joke about Scooter Braun is an excellent joke. It just is. Much like all the jokes about Kris Jenner working harder than the devil, it’s just fucking funny. Ariana’s sense of humor, however, is apparently broken, so she clapped back with some BS about finding love. Okay, I get it, you’re in love. She’s since deleted her tweet, so maybe she realized she took it too seriously. Whatever, she’s clearly still happy for Justin and Hailey after her “hooooraaaaay” comment on his Instagram.

We Have A Theory Why Justin Bieber & Hailey Baldwin Got Engaged

Well, my fellow betches, I was wrong. About many things, but I’m here today to talk about Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin. Last week, I said I didn’t think their relationship was too serious, and that they’d be broken up by Labor Day. I thought these two were just down to fuck around and get matching haircuts, but I never really thought they were in it for the long haul. But fast forward five days, and Justin and Hailey are F U C K I N G ENGAGED. Now, I’ve had a few hours to process this news, so let me try to unpack my thoughts.

First of all, why the fuck is everyone getting engaged so fast? Is the world running out of diamonds? Is there a summer sale happening at David’s Bridal? Whatever the reason, this is one celebrity trend that I cannot get behind. I was already confused when Pete Davidson and Ariana Grande got engaged after like 2.5 minutes of dating, but now Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra are “pre-engaged” (what), and Hailey and Justin are taking the plunge too. Wait, I just realized—are we sure this isn’t a green card marriage? With all the immigration shit going down right now, maybe Justin’s real goal was just to lock down a US citizen. (But has he BEEN to America lately? Maybe it’s actually Hailey who’s trying to get that Canadian citizenship. That would make more sense.)

I also can’t help but think of Selena Gomez during this emotional time. Where is she? What is she doing? Is all this stress okay for her kidneys? Honestly, I always just assumed that she and Justin would get back together again, so the idea that it might really be over forever is a tough pill to swallow. Just a few months ago, it seemed like they were happy together again, but so much has changed so quickly. Normally I don’t really care about Selena, but I’m really rooting for her, so I hope that she starts dating the hottest man on the planet very soon. She deserves it, honestly.

But really, wtf is going on with this relationship?? It’s been just a few weeks since Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin started hanging out publicly, and they’ve been together basically ever since. It’s great that they’ve been enjoying each other’s company so much, but I’m just so puzzled by the need to get engaged. Hailey is just 21 years old, and I just refuse to believe someone born in 1996 is ready to get married. Like, 1996 basically just happened. There must have been a really inspirational sermon at Hillsong Church this week, because clearly they felt like it was time to make a major life decision with pretty much no advance planning. Like, I’ll decide to get drunk on a Wednesday without thinking about the consequences, but that’s a lot different than literally agreeing to spend the rest of my life with someone.

So yeah, I still have a lot of feelings about this, and I’m sure we’ll be talking more about Hailey and Justin in the weeks, months, and years (help) to come. Who knows, they could still be broken up by Labor Day, but that would be a pretty spectacular fail on their part. I guess for now I’ll just go back to trying to get guys to respond to my texts, and maybe a month from now I’ll be engaged too. If it can happen to Hailey Baldwin, surely it can happen to me?
