Selena Gomez and on-again beau Justin Bieber rang in 2018 in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. She jetted off to the Mexican resort town late last week and has been vacationing with friends. They took photos of themselves frolicking on the beach.

Bieber arrived in Cabo on New Year’s Eve, and later posted on his Instagram stories a photo of himself and two guys standing in a dining room inside the $18,000-per-night luxury oceanside villa that E! News said that Gomez and her pals are renting throughout the holiday. Justin also soaked up the sun while doing some work on his Mac laptop.

Bieber and Gomez, who rekindled their romance a couple of months ago, were not been photographed together as of Sunday afternoon.

The two, who dated on and off for three years until 2014, have vacationed together in Cabo before.


Demi Lovato gets flirtatious onstage with dancer Jojo Gomez as part of their “Cool for the Summer” choreography, but the pair got even closer on New Year’s Eve, when they shared a kiss to ring in 2018.

Lovato posted a series of photos on Instagram from her show in Miami Sunday night: three killer performance shots of the singer in her sequined blue catsuit, plus a photo of the celebratory smooch.

“Last performance of 2017 and first kiss of 2018,” she wrote as a caption.

Gomez, who’s also a choreographer, shared the picture on her own Instagram page, wishing Lovato a Happy New Year with the same “first kiss of 2018” comment.

Earlier in the evening, Lovato gave fans a sultry selfie showing off her glam New Year’s look.

Jodie Foster is not here for the big budget movies. In an interview with Radio Times, she compared them to fracking, saying they are destroying the planet.

“Going to the movies has become like a theme park,” Foster said in an interview with Radio Times. “Studios making bad content in order to appeal to the masses and shareholders is like fracking—you get the best return right now but you wreck the earth.”

  • Foster has especially harsh words for superhero movies in particular. She opined: “It’s ruining the viewing habits of the American population and then ultimately the rest of the world. I don’t want to make $200 million movies about superheroes.” 
  • Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn responded to her criticism in a series of posts on Twitter.
  • “I think [Jodie] Foster looks at film in an old-fashioned way where spectacle film can’t be thought-provoking. It’s often true but not always. Her belief system is pretty common and isn’t totally without basis,” he wrote.
  • He continued: “I say not without basis because most studio franchise films are somewhat soulless – and that is a real danger to the future of movies. But there are also quite a few exceptions. For cinema to survive, I believe spectacle films NEED to have a vision and heart they traditionally haven’t. And some of us are doing our best to move in that direction. Creating spectacle films that are innovative, humane, and thoughtful is what excites me about this job.”
