Here's the reality ... Selena Gomez will be asked A LOT about Justin Bieber's engagement to Hailey Baldwin, but she's all warmed up and ready to respond ... with a cold shoulder.
Photogs caught Bieber's ex Monday evening in NYC, and a pap asked if she had any comment on his weekend proposal to Hailey. That, or well-wishes ... either way.
More reality ... everyone, especially Beliebers, will judge a lot based on Selena's words -- or even just her facial reactions. So, go ahead and judge away.
She doesn't have much to say to photogs, but she does look preoccupied by her convo with a pal.
Hard to make out what they're saying, but also hard to imagine the words ... Justin, Hailey or "that ring" ... haven't come up once or twice.
