Justin and Selena vacationing in Santa Cruz, Aptos
|SANTA CRUZ, Calif. —#Omg! Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez were spotted Monday riding Segways in Santa Cruz and vacationing at an luxury oceanfront resort in Aptos, local fans told KSBW.
In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past five years, Bieber and Gomez are pop music megastars who recently decided to get back together as boyfriend and girlfriend.
Courtney Clark, 17, and her sister Melissa Clark, 15, were driving in the Seascape neighborhood of Aptos Monday when they saw someone wearing a hoodie sweatshirt and big dark sunglasses, even though it was 10 p.m. at night. He was walking with a beautiful blonde woman.
When Bieber and Gomez realized two fans had just recognized them despite their disguises, they ran into the Seascape Beach Resort laughing. Gomez lost her blonde wig while running, revealing her long dark hair, fans said.
The sisters said it looked like 19-year-old Bieber and 21-year-old Gomez were returning from dinner to their hotel. The celebrities spent the rest of the night in their room and on their balcony perched above Seascape Beach.
Only a handful of “Beliebers” were aware that the stars were in town, and the couple appeared to enjoy being far away from Los Angeles and New York City’s intense paparazzi.
On Monday morning, Bieber tweeted that he was taking a break by going on vacation with his family, but did not say where, and did not mention Gomez.
“Good to be on the first break in a while. Spending some quality time with family,” he wrote on Twitter.
As it turns out, he picked Aptos and neighboring beach town Santa Cruz.
A Santa Cruz park ranger said Gomez, Bieber, and Bieber’s father spent a sunny day riding Segways around Pogonip Park in Santa Cruz.
Bieber uploaded a video on Instagram showing his dad suffering a Segway wipeout in the park. Although it was only five seconds long, the video racked up half a million Instagram “likes.”
The group also relaxed on a nearby beach that normally has no public access, but was opened for Bieber by park rangers.
After a two-month split, the pop music world was tipped off that Bieber and Gomez were back together when they went on a Segway ride in Bieber’s gated community in Calabasas, Calif. on Jan. 2.
Gomez, whose hit songs include “Come & Get It” and “Slow Down,” unexpectedly canceled her upcoming tours in Asian and Australia, saying she needed to spend time with herself.
“It has become clear to me and those close to me that after many years of putting my work first, I need to spend some time on myself in order to be the best person I can be,” Gomez said.
On Christmas Eve, Bieber made fans gasp when he Tweeted that he was “officially retiring.” Of course, the teenager who earned $113 million in the last two years has no real plans to actually ditch the music industry, and followed up by tweeting, “Merry Christmas. I’m here forever.”
On Tuesday, Forbes magazine released its annual “30 Under 30” list, naming the world’s most influential men and women who are less than 30 years old. Bieber was ranked No. 3, being only less famous than Miley Cyrus and actress Jennifer Lawrence.
