Body language expert reveals the huge difference between Justin Bieber's behaviour with Hailey Baldwin and Selena Gomez
Justin Bieber sure knows how to shock his fans. His personal life is so full of twists and turns, that if it aired as a soap opera viewers would complain that the plot was too contrived. The latest bombshell? Bieber has announced his engagement to model and actress Hailey Baldwin, whom he's been dating since May 2018 after a split from Selena Gomez. In a recent Instagram post, Bieber stated: "Hailey I am soooo in love with everything about you! So committed to spending my life getting to know every single part of you loving you ... You are the love of my life Hailey Baldwin and I wouldn’t want to spend it with anybody else."
As you can imagine, this revelation well and truly broke social media, and the reaction of Bieber's legions of fans ranged from enthusiasm and excitement to outrage and outright disbelief. Many people believed that, despite all their ups and downs, he and Selena were made for each other. But this engagement seems to have put an end to that fantasy for good.
In an effort to prove that Selena/Justin weren't the one true couple everyone thought they were, body language expert Blanca Cobb carefully analysed Justin's interactions with his ex-girlfriend, and then compared them to how he's behaving around his fiancé. Her conclusions are extremely enlightening.
First of all Cobb compared the way Justin walks with his two lovers, and noted that there was more distance between him and Selena, noting that they walked out of sync with Justin usually striding ahead. "They're just not in sync," she stated, "To me, they're two strangers walking into a building at the same time. There's no passion — none at all." With Hailey, the two walked together closely and their pace matched. Cobb stated: "He looks physically closer to Hailey. Their body language definitely says they're [emotionally] closer."
Cobb also noted that Justin held Selena's differently compared to Hailey's. She noted that Selena would often take the lead when holding hands, crossing her arm over Justin's in what could be seen as a display of dominance and assertiveness. In contrast, when holding hands with Hailey, Justin's fingers interlock perfectly and there is no tension in his grip. Furthermore his posture is straighter and more confident. "Nothing is getting between them, and that's what you see with happy couples, even if their faces don't reflect it with smiles," Cobb stated.
Finally, Cobb noted that Justin kisses Selena in a more adolescent fashion, and that the act is not as passionate with her as it is with Hailey. Cobb stated: "It's puppy love. It's different from mature love, and it's not as developed." Meanwhile she described a kiss between Hailey and Justin as a lot more passionate, noting: "He's leaning down toward her, and she's tilting her head more than he does, which exposes a vulnerable part of her body and conveys comfort and trust."
So there you have it: despite all our prior expectations, it seems like Hailey really is the right girl for Justin after all. I guess this is good news for them!
