Even after being spotted smooching Selena Gomez in the Caribbean recently, Justin Bieber is still insisting they’re just friends.

When Ryan Seacrest asked Bieber on his KIIS-FM radio show Monday what he should say to people who have seen video or photos of Bieber, 16 and Gomez, 18, getting cozy, Bieber didn t hesitate.

“Just tell ’em that she’s, like, one of my best friends,” he said enthusiastically.

Seacrest didn’t push, but did ask what movie they saw during a recent movie date in Burbank, Calif.

“We saw No Strings Attached,” Bieber said.

“That’s what I need right there,” Seacrest joked, referring to the pair’s choice of movie, which follows a couple – played by Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher – who try to remain just friends with certain other benefits.
