Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber split

Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber split

She's better off without him.

Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber's very public breakup has fans of both in a total frenzy. Honestly, Gomez might be suffering post-split sadness now, but in the long run, she's better off, so chin up, disappointed Jelena fans. Why? Because for all his popularity, Bieber is still a teenybopper pop star.

It's time for Selena to move on, and start taking meatier acting roles. In other words, she needs to grow up. Having Justin on her arm only holds her back.

Justin and Selena definitely made a cute, teen celebrity couple, but at this point, the relationship was totally played out. The reason for the breakup really doesn't matter in the long run, though reports cite "trust issues" on Selena's part. Both Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have long careers ahead of them, though one might argue that it's Selena, not her ex, whose career has the most potential.

Selena has a fantastic singing voice and a natural beauty and ease that makes her perfect for movies. Hopefully at some point, she'll get offers for meatier acting roles in films better than Spring Breakers. She has a much better chance of being taken seriously in Hollywood without the world's biggest teen pop star (and his screeching, crazy fans) on her arm. What's next for Selena Gomez? The sky is literally the limit for her.

Selena Gomez fans, what say you? Do you think that this Bieber split will help or hurt her career? And for that matter, what kinds of acting roles would you like Selena to take in the near future?
