Throughout this tumultuous romance, they used music to speak their hearts. Let's revisit those poignant moments today!
Fans have witnessed Justin and Selena's emotional moments on stage, reliving their cherished memories. In a recent interview, Gomez admitted that she took a hiatus from social media after her heartbreak in 2018, a period that deeply affected her. It was an especially trying time for her, as she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder that same year.
Let's take a closer look at the songs that Selena Gomez penned about her ex, Justin Bieber:
Love Will Remember (2013)
In 2013, Selena encapsulated their first significant breakup in the song "Love Will Remember." It even featured a voicemail from Bieber, where he called her his princess worthy of all the love in the world. The lyrics beautifully convey, "I know it inside my heart, forever will forever be ours. Even if we try to forget, Love will remember."
Nobody Does It Like You (2013)
In this song, Selena openly admits her fascination with the idea of good girls falling for bad boys. She sings, "You’re my bad boy fairytale, prince charming with a bad side. I wanna be your bad girl; you bring out my wild side."
Come & Get It (2013)
This track showcased Selena's unapologetic, head-over-heels love. She sang, "I’m not too shy to show I love you; I got no regrets. I love you much, too much to hide you; this love ain’t finished yet."
Forget Forever (2013)
Selena didn't hold back and openly expressed her feelings for Justin. The lyrics go, "Our love was made to rule the world; you came and broke the perfect girl.
The Heart Wants What It Wants (2014)
Even during their struggles, Selena was determined to hold on. She convinced herself that "the heart wants what it wants."
Same Old Love (2015)
While rumors suggest that Gomez's "I Want You To Know" also had a Bieber connection, it was more likely a collaboration with Zedd, whom she briefly dated later. However, "Same Old Love" could very well be her message to her ex-boyfriend, signaling her readiness to move on. The lyrics express, "Don’t you try and change your mind, cause I won’t be changing too, you know. You can’t believe, still can’t believe it. You left in peace, left me in pieces."
It Ain’t Me (2017)
With this song, Selena seemed to address Justin's struggles with addiction. The lyrics suggest her weariness of his habits: "No, I don’t want to know where you’ve been and where you go, but I know I won’t be home, and you’ll be on your own."
Lose You To Love Me (2019)
After Justin moved on with Hailey Baldwin just two months after their final split, Selena chose to remain silent. Her comeback with the album "Rare" included the track "Lose You To Love Me," which was clearly a response to their relationship. She bravely broke the silence on their unfortunate ending, expressing, "In two months, you replaced us like it was easy. Made me think I deserved it in the thick of healing."
She continued, "We’d always go into it blindly; I needed to lose you to find me. This dancing was killing me softly, I needed to hate you to love me. I needed to lose you love me," leaving all Selenators teary-eyed as she bared her heart.
Look At Her Now (2020)
Selena finally found her closure and was over her heartbreak. Her message to Justin was clear, "Of course she was sad, but now she’s glad she dodged a bullet. Took a few years to soak up the tears but look at her now."
Every Selenator must be incredibly proud of Selena as we reach the end of this heart-wrenching musical journey. What truly matters is that she's enjoying being 'single soon,' and we're happy for her! Stay tuned to iShook Daily for more Hollywood stories!
