Taylor Swift clearly subscribes to the general rule of "If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all" - as she snubbed a question about Justin Bieber at the Billboard Music Awards over the weekend.
Taylor's good friend Selena Gomez appears to have fully reunited with the Canadian singer, and today a GIF showing Taylor grimace backstage as they kiss in front of her has gone viral.

However, when asked about the 'Boyfriend' singer following her well-deserved EIGHT wins at the ceremony, she apparently refused to answer.
According to E! News, a journalist asked her how she felt about Biebs winning the fan-voted Milestone Award, for which he was booed by some members of the crowd.
"Can we have another question?" she responded.
When Bieber collected his prize and was hit by boos, he stood listening for what felt like a decade before saying: "I'm 19 years old, I think I'm doing a pretty good job and basically, from my heart, I really wanna say it should really be about the music. It should be about the craft, the craft that I'm making.
"This is not a gimmick. I'm an artist and I should be taken seriously and all this other bull should not be spoken of."
Reeling of some thank-yous, he continued: "I wanna thank my manager, Scooter Braun. I wanna thank my family at home. I wanna thank my mother, my father, I wanna thank Jesus Christ. Mom, I love you so much. Dad, I love you. Little brother and sister, I love you so much. Thank you guys so much. Fans, you're incredible."
