Is Selena Gomez Singing (And Crying) About Bieber in Her New Single?

FUSE TV - Is Selena Gomez Singing (And Crying) About Bieber in Her New Single?

The entire world has been watching Young Hollywood's most on-again-off-again relationship between Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber and it looks like the singer/actress is making an artistic statement on her choice to stand by her man via new single "The Heart Wants What It Wants." There're a lot to digest here from the former Disney star, so let's take it piece by piece.

Sonically, "The Heart Wants What It Wants" has a Lorde-like, minimal electro-pop beat complete with finger snaps, ominous synths and haunting groans. Lyrically, Selena details being in love with a bad boy despite knowing he may not be a stand-up guy. She sings, "The bed's getting cold and you're not here / The future that we hold is so unclear / But I'm not alive until you call / And I'll bet the odds against it all... / There's a million reasons why I should give you up / But the heart wants what it wants."
