Selena Gomez Reacts to Justin Bieber’s First-Ever Grammys Win: ‘I’m Very Happy for Him’

Said like a true homey. Selena Gomez reacted to her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber‘s first-ever Grammys win at the 2016 awards show on Monday, February 15, and her response was refreshingly mature.

“I’m very happy for him,” Gomez, 23 — who was joined on the red carpet by the night’s biggest winner, her best friend Taylor Swift — told Entertainment Tonight outside of the Staples Center in L.A. “Honestly, so cool.”

Bieber, along with Skrillex and Diplo, took home a Grammy for their dance track, “Where Are U Now,” fulfilling the pop superstar’s long-running dream of taking home a gilded gramophone of his own.

He and Gomez dated on and off for three years before ending their relationship for good in 2014, but the two have remained on friendly terms. Along with praise for her ex, the Disney alum also had sweet things to say about Bieber’s EDM collaborators.

“They have such a cool energy amongst all of them to be able to create something like that,” she noted. “It’s really great.”

During the live broadcast, the trio delivered a high-energy performance that kicked off with Bieber, 21, strumming his guitar and singing an acoustic version of his single, “Love Yourself.” He then launched into a hard-rock take on “Where Are Ü Now” with Diplo and Skrillex.

Talking ad nauseam about her famous ex in interviews can be tiresome, Gomez has said. “At first I didn’t care,” Gomez told W magazine in her March 2016 cover story about the perpetual interest in Jelena. “To me it was: I’m 18, I have a boyfriend, we look cute together, we like that. Then I got my heart broken and I cared. Because people had no idea what was going on, but everywhere it was a million different things. I was kind of in a corner, banging my head against the wall. I didn’t know where to go.”

Unfortunately, that infatuation has faded. “I’m so exhausted,” Gomez concluded to W. “I honestly am so done. I care about his health and well-being. But I can’t do it anymore.”
