Justin Bieber still talks about how elegant and beautiful Selena Gomez is.

The Canadian star and Selena have enjoyed an on-off relationship since 2010, but are thought to have split for good earlier this year.

Despite going their separate ways, pop star Pixie Lott reveals Justin still likes to talk about Selena's good points whenever he can.

"When I was in the South of France I bumped into Justin Bieber and we were both talking about how elegant and beautiful [Selena] is," Pixie told British newspaper Metro.

"I think she is so lovely and beautiful. She is really talented."

Pixie has previously collaborated with former Disney star Selena, although the song came as something of a surprise to the British beauty.

They ended up teaming up on We Own the Night, a track the Pixie penned herself.

"Selena recorded a song I had written and she left my parts in on the middle eight so it ended up being Selena Gomez featuring Pixie Lott," Pixie recalled.

The blonde star enjoyed the experience of teaming up with a fellow female star, but doesn't think there are enough women collaborating.

Nicki Minaj, Ariana Grande and Jessie J have recently worked together on new tune Bang Bang, but Pixie still says more women need to head into the studio together.

"There are a lot of boy-girl duets but there isn't as many girl-girl ones. One of my favourite songs is The Boy Is Mine by Brandy and Monica," she confessed.
