The Italian people had reason to rejoice this week. No, it wasn’t because The Young Pope is confusing the shit out of the silly Americans that are watching it. It was because Starboy-crossed lovers Selena Gomez and The Weeknd visited Italy as a couple. “Taking it international” is always the next item on the “Career-Boosting Contractual Celebrity PR Relationship” checklist. It follows “first, make those tongues wag by getting get papped together in public” and “then get your equally famous exes to whine about it via their publicists.” They appear to have skipped the “wear clothing that celebrates your love together” and “bring a photographer to capture your intimate walk on the beach” parts. Taylor Swift is gonna be pissed that you’re not following her established guide, Selena! Don’t forget that she’s the queen bee in this irritating celebrity relationships hive!
According to E!, Selena and The Weeknd visited the famed city of Florence, where they took in the art and ate stuff.
The couple traveled to the Italian city of Florence, E! News has learned, where they dined at Trattoria Borgo Antico for lunch. Plenty of pictures have popped up on social media, showing Selena and The Weeknd in the airport and getting into a car in an Italian piazza.

TMZ reports that they visited the Uffizi Gallery and are basically doing everything that J. Harvey wants to do on HIS Italian vacation which he hasn’t gone on yet, so writing this post is painful. Visiting Florence is on my dream board after “new rear brakes for the Chevy Spark” and “getting that growth on our Shih Tzu’s leg removed.” Someday. (I’ll get you the link to my GoFundMe page in a sec.)
The couple popped up Friday in Florence where they took in the local art at the famed Uffizi Gallery Museum. We’re told there were about 20 people waiting to get in who were pushed aside so Selena and her beau could get out. There was at least one bodyguard with them.
Seems like things are getting serious, our source says they even kissed in public … as they were boarding an employee elevator to make their exit.
Ok, you can wait until you’ve boarded the friggin’ elevator before you make out. I get that you’re young and can’t keep your gentials off each other, but safety first. You never know when the elevator isn’t going to be there. LA Law was the shit back in the day, huh?
