Selena Gomez has made headlines over the years for her off-and-on “Jelena” relationship with Justin Bieber.
The singer candidly spoke about Justin Bieber during a chat with Ryan Seacrest today, admitting she will always have feelings for The Biebs.
The 22-year-old star singer was on the radio show to promote her new emotional single, The Heart Wants What the Heart Wants, and she didn’t hold back talking about her relationship.
She told Ryan it had been a rough year, but she has taken time to learn more about herself and says people will think what they want anyway.
Gomez’s new single, which includes a tearful monologue about Justin, stated, “Everybody wants to form their own opinions anyway. I think the biggest problem I had this year – even with [Justin] and on his side – is identity”.
Part of that was going back to the Baby singer a number of times after breaking up.
She explains, “I was trying to figure out what I’m doing, and that was the first time I was constantly being kicked down for doing that. When I didn’t know, I just wanted to say, ‘This is what I want, this is where I am’. In my professional life things changed, in my personal life things changed, in my heart – everything.”
She admits, “Yeah, I made some decisions that weren’t great as well, and so did he and that’s why we went through all that to only make us better. And he has heard [the song] and he has seen the video, and it’s something that I feel like girls need hear, and it’s something I’m willing to share with people”.
Selena revealed Justin had watched the video, stating, “He thought it was beautiful [but] I think it is really hard at first.”
Originally filmed a year ago, Selena sat on the music video for a year unable to commit to opening herself up that much and also because her feelings for the Canadian singer kept changing.
She revealed, “The video was supposed to come out three times but through coincidence or though changes…. in my life [it didn’t] . After this year it is the perfect way to end a year, it is the perfect way to end a chapter. It is like this is what I will say about every single person who has judged me, for every decision I have made, for every person and every heart that has been judged for that they’ve done.”
She admits, “I support him, I think I always will. I’m upset when he is upset, I’m happy when he’s happy. I don’t want anything to every happen to him, it hurts me.”
Ryan tried to find out if Selena was still dating Justin, but she joked she would “need to go on EHarmony after all this”.
