Selena Gomez’s new breakup song might not name her famous ex, Justin Bieber, but it points to him. In fact, fans are convinced that the song is all about him. Recently, Selena shared new details about the song and what went into making it.
Selena Gomez dropped a breakup song on 23 October and fans are convinced that it points to her ex, Justin Bieber, and their eight year on-and-off relationship. The famous relationship ended in March 2018 and within two months Justin started dating his current wife, Hailey Baldwin. This must have taken a toll on the 27-year-old singer who released the breakup song ‘Lose You To Love Me’ days after Bieber’s lavish wedding.
While she never named Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez recently revealed what went down in making of her latest song
In an interview on 28 October with SiriusXM, Selena Gomez spilled the beans and revelaed that a lot of “pain” was the inspiration behind ‘Lose You To Love Me’.
In her own words:
“I wrote ‘Lose You To Love Me’ in the beginning of the year. We were in L.A. And I was just going to go in the studio for a session. I wasn’t quite sure what was going to come of it. And within two hours, even an hour, we basically wrapped up the song. I mean a lot of pain went behind the song but it ended up being something that is beautiful. I think my new work is very different than some of the last singles and records I’ve put out. Not in any way, different, it’s just, I’ve continuously grown up and so there’s different directions and I’m still figuring out sometimes kind of where I want to go, it’s always, never one way. But it’s exciting to try new things.”
Selena Gomez wants Justin Bieber to listen to her songs
Not only this, but recently Selena Gomez confessed that she wants Justin Bieber to listen to all her new tracks. She made the revelation on Zach Sang Show saying, “Yeah, I do (want him to listen). And here’s the whole point: being able to say something on your own. And being able to say something that actually is beautiful. For me, my intentions are never evil. They just aren’t. I don’t even know how to do that. My intentions can be a bit snappy but I always want to come from a place that’s genuine. And when I feel like some things haven’t been said, then, I get to turn things into art.”
What Justin has to say
Justin Bieber has not yet commented on Selena Gomez’s new song publically. But according to HollywoodLife, he knew that this was coming.
“He pretty much knew it was coming because as an artist that’s what she’s done before,” said the source. “And he respects her choice to do that. But the past is not something he wants to dwell on. His mind is on Hailey and the life they are building together and their plans for the future. Lately, he’s been playing the music video he did with her a ton”. Justin Bieber “loves that they have it to hang onto forever and he talks about how one day they will show it to their kids and then their grandkids.”
