So responded Selena Gomez on The Late Show last night, as David Letterman peppered her with questions about Justin Bieber.
After showing the singer a photo of herself and the Biebs at a Vanity Fair Oscars party in February, he asked Selena how long she's known Justin (two years), how they met (his manager called her mom/manager) and whether or not the duo are dating.
Selena's unclear reply? "He's been in my life for so long, and it's just nice to have someone that understands what you're going through."
Gomez and Bieber are absolutely entitled to their privacy, but consider the lesson of Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart: it might be best to just admit to a relationship and end the speculation once and for all.
Otherwise, the young stars will continue to be asked about their status and will be forced to come up with awkward answers that pretty much confirm it anyway.
