Justin Bieber might be dating Jasmine Villegas! Some lucky tourist caught Justin Bieber and Jasmine V on camera kissing, but if the duo do fess up and admit they are dating, will the results be catastrophic?
According to TMZ, Justin Bieber and 16-year-old Jasmine Villegas were in the back of a Honda kissing when a Canadian tourist happened upon the duo. I’m sure the photos on TMZ will be shots heard ’round the world, as the hearts of Justin Bieber fans everywhere break simultaneously. But will Justin Bieber actually fess up to dating Jasmine Villegas, and just who is this heartbreaker, anyway?
Jasmine Villegas had a few guest appearances on sitcoms, but she started out as a print model for brands like Target and Kohls and has appeared in TV commercials for companies like McDonalds and Chevrolet. According to her bio, Jasmine Villegas has tried to climb her way up to fame the Hannah Montana way through filming a Disney pilot, but it looks like she’s going to become a household name for a whole different reason now.
Jasmine Villegas has already gotten to live the dream, starring in Justin Bieber’s “Baby” video as his love interest. “Jasmine V”, as she’s called on her official site, has also been touring with Justin Bieber, a sure-fire way to get noticed by the teen and ‘tween crowds. Like Justin, Jasmine V has also been using YouTube as a tool to win over more fans and has shot music videos of her own (you can see Jasmine V singing “Serious” here).
So will the kissing photos ruin Jasmine V’s shot at fame? Well, it is nice to see Justin Bieber go after someone his own age, after seeing him crush on older girls like Kim Kardashian, Rihanna and Beyonce. However, you can bet Justin Bieber fans won’t be happy if it turns out that the two are dating (just look at what happened with Kim K!). Fortunately, Jasmine V has already started to form her own fan base, and Justin Bieber is going to have to admit to dating someone sooner or later, so why not her?
Then again, since 99 percent of Justin Bieber’s fanbase are teen girls, he might be advised against admitting to dating Jasmine V in order to hold onto every one of them, and it’s going to be interesting to see if he fesses up to the kissing photos (there’s always the possibility that he’ll simply choose to ignore them or deny that it wasn’t him and Jasmine V in the photos).
It’s really hard to say if Jasmine V being caught kissing Justin Bieber will help or hurt her career right now (they could end up being another Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake, after all), but you can bet a lot more people are taking notice of the up-and-coming teen star.
