Justin Bieber at the 2011 Vanity Fair Oscars after-party


Back in September, when her relationship with Justin Bieber was still just being noticed, Selena Gomez was pressed by Ellen DeGeneres about what exactly was going on between the two of them.

"He's little. He's like my little brother," responded Gomez, 18, about Bieber, who turned 17 on March 1.

The singer-actress returned Tuesday to The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and the TV host asks Gomez again, "He's like your little brother? ... What do you have to say now?"

"I don't know. I don't know," replies Gomez, who's been bravely mum about what exactly is going on between her and Bieber.

"Well," presses DeGeneres (who's great at prying about such things), "you were trying to hide it still, right? But now you've made it public."

Suggesting this is more than simply a sibling-like relationship, DeGeneres also says, "You went to the Vanity Fair [Oscar night] party [together] and made me a fool."

With a laugh, Gomez replies: "No, I really didn't."

"Yes, you did!!" counters DeGeneres

"I promise you, I didn't," insists Gomez. "He's just sweet." Another laugh.

"He is," acknowledges DeGeneres. "He's sweet as can be. But he's not like your little brother, is he? No, he's not. And he's a fantastic guy. You can't try to hide that forever."

Adds DeGeneres: "I know you all were sneaking around but that's crazy. You're both huge stars, and you can't hide from us."

Says Gomez, "I didn't lie to you. I didn't, though. I'll say that."

"No, you didn't blatantly lie. A little brother is not someone you want to date."

"Well, no," concedes Gomez. "That would be weird."

Advises DeGeneres, sounding something like a Mother Hen: "That would be wrong and weird in so many ways."

Capping the discussion, DeGeneres presents Gomez with a pillow to take with her on tour. It has a picture of Justin Bieber on it – so Gomez will not miss him.
