Selena Gomez was the guest of honor this morning on Good Morning America, the latest in the morning show's Summer Concert Series, and had to face the music about Justin Bieber.

While she was there to perform hits like "Come and Get It" and "Love You Like a Love Song" in front of legions of fans in Central Park, the GMA hosts leapt at the chance to pry into the Stars Dance singer's on-again/off-again relationship with Justin.

Selena bailed on a satellite interview on July 22 when a reporter asked a similar question, but it's not like she could escape the question on live TV.

"He and I have had such a history together," the 21-year-old began. (You can say that again, Selena!)

"I'll always care about him and protect him if anyone tries to be mean."

The last time Selena graced GMA's Central Park stage was in 2011, back when she and Justin were just starting their relationship.
