Justin Bieber is infamous for putting cryptic messages in his songs, or at least we think so. Despite cancelling his tour, Justin has released a new single- “Friends”, & we can’t help but wonder who he’s talking about! “Can we still be friends?” Bieber asks on his latest track to an ex who he swears he’s over but doesn’t want to quit completely. Considering the tumultuous past between he & Selena Gomez, we always just assume it’s about her- & it’s really hard not to! THey broke up in 2014 after being on & off for 3 years & Selena has made it crystal clear that she’s moved on, which is natural considering they dated when they were like 16, but she also revealed to Vogue Australia that she can’t completely get rid of him. “For a while my private life was the most talked about thing,” Gomez said.”Nobody really knows everything and they can only assume. You want to do what you love but all this other stuff overshadows it so it makes it a little harder for people to take me seriously.” Anyway… Whoever this “Friends” song is about- Bieber clearly isn’t over yet. “Girl, you wonderin’ why I’ve been callin’?/Like I’ve got ulterior motives,” he sings. “No, we didn’t end this so good/But you know we had something so good.” It’s cleat he’s trying to get this chick back! Now, Bieber never mentions anyone by name, leaving us in limbo. For all we know, it could be Sofia Richie! The track that’s co- written by Julia Michaels & Justin Tranter also mentions his ex’s mom- & we know how close Selena is to her mama! “I was wonderin’ ’bout your mama. Did she get that job she wanted? So that car that gave her problems I’m just curious ’bout her, honest.” Bieber’s mom is a fan of Selena’s, tweeting her in the past to send her some b-day love. And we can’t forget Justin’s #TBT on social media of his & Selena captioning it with 1 word- “Perfect.” He admitted to Access Hollywood last year that most of his Purpose album was about Selena, calling her his “first love.” “It was really tough. I don’t know if I’m over it yet,” Bieber said then. “I think that I’m definitely in another place and I think we’ve definitely went our separate ways. I love her and I want her to be awesome, but there are things that remind me of her.” Either way- Justin will most likely never admit who the song is about, so we’ll just have to make our own judgement.
