Selena Gomez Hopes Justin Bieber Will Listen to Her New Music
It looks like this songstress is ready to close a major chapter in her life. Selena Gomez has just released two uber revealing singles about the demise of her relationship with Justin Bieber — and quite frankly, her fans are shook.
Gomez dropped “Lose You To Love Me” and shortly thereafter she dropped “Look At Her Now.” Both songs are extremely vulnerable for Gomez who isn’t someone who likes to discuss her personal life and struggles. Though she is one of the most-followed people on Instagram, the Wizards of Waverly Place alum has been open about feeling conflicted about social media and how it can lead to mental health issues.
Still, for her new music — Gomez did want to share some of the things she’s been going through with her fans. On Vevo just before releasing “Lose You To Love Me,” Gomez said, “This song was inspired by many things that have happened in my life since releasing my last album. I want people to feel hope and to know you will come out the other side stronger and a better version of yourself.”
What is Selena Gomez’s ‘Lose You To Love Me’ about?
Though Gomez never explicitly calls Bieber out by name in the song, she does address their toxic relationship in her lyrics. She talks openly about wearing “rose-colored glasses” when it came to her on-again, off-again relationship.
Bieber himself has alluded to being unfaithful when he was with Gomez. One of the Revolve singer’s lyrics read, “You got off on the hurtin’.” In the second verse, the “Wolves” singer explicitly addresses Bieber’s quickie marriage to Hailey Baldwin. She sings, “In two months, you replaced us. Like it was easy.”
What is Selena Gomez’s ‘Look At Her Now’ about?
“Look At Her Now” is also about Gomez and Bieber’s relationship–but it’s more about the singer/actress moving on and healing from old wounds. She sings, “Of course she was sad / But now she’s glad she dodged a bullet (Mm) / Took a few years to soak up the tears / But look at her now, watch her go.”
Though it was painful to see Bieber move on so quickly, Gomez seems thankful to be on the other side of things. In September 2019, an insider told Us Weekly,
Selena knows she’s better off without Justin, and that it’s the healthiest decision for her. She is open to dating, but right now she is solely focused on herself and enjoying life to the best of her ability, and getting back to being the Selena that she and all of her close ones knew prior to dating Justin.
Why does Selena Gomez want Justin Bieber to listen to her new music?
While doing press for her new music, Gomez has been clear that it’s important to her that Bieber hears what she has to say. During and interview on the Zach Sang Show, she said openly,
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. So naturally, for sure [I want him to listen]. In general, the most important part is that the world got to hear it, and relate to it, and know that they aren’t alone because this feeling that everyone goes through in life is so real. And you just get destroyed. So, sure.
We just hope this will be closure for all parties involved.
