UPDATE 2:37 PM EST: Rosie Perez comments further on the matter. CLICK HERE to see what she's saying NOW!
Beliebers have finally recovered from the uproar Ariana Grande created by posting the (above) Twitter pic!
And now, the performer is revealing details as to why the photo was put up in the first place!
"I think [fans] had trended #JustinAndArianaSelfie or something like that, so I was like, ‘we have to do this.’ Justin was like ‘Yo, let’s take a picture.’ And so I took out my phone and I went like this and I was just smiling and he kissed me on the cheek."
"And I didn’t know what to do. I just walked out of the room. I got shy. And then [Justin's manager] Scooter came after to me and said, ‘Justin says you have to post that picture.’ And I said, ‘I will not.’ And he was like ‘he says you have to post that picture.’ And I was like I can’t do that because I don’t want the drama that’s going to come with that."
Ariana said that Bieberoni ended up personally asking her to post the picture via social media, so the public pressure was on and she caved!
We can't help but wonder if Justy's insisting had anything to do with his on again/off again love for Selena Gomez!
Perhaps some jealousy was in the air that night!
