​Justin Bieber causes stir with Selena Gomez photo

Justin Bieber is asking everyone to calm down.

The pop star caused an Internet frenzy this week after he posted a photo on Instagram. This wasn't just any ordinary picture: The shot showed the Canadian pop star with ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez, prompting many to wonder if the former couple had decided to get back together.

Well, hate to break it to you, it's not happening. The photo was taken in August 2014, actually.

Bieber later added the caption: "Just a throwback calm down."

Bieber, 21, and Gomez, 23, dated on and off for years, and have reportedly channeled the relationship into their music.
