First loves die hard.
Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez’s intense, on-again/off-again relationship has clearly affected both the “Baby”; singer and the former Disney star deeply, and now, Beliebers are set to hear a whole lot more about Justin’s feelings in his new music.
Though Justin has yet to announce a release date for his highly anticipated new album, in an interview with On Air with Ryan Seacrest on Thursday morning, the 21-year-old superstar admits that a lot of his new material is inspired by his ex-girlfriend, Selena.
“I think a lot of my inspiration comes from [Selena],”; he tells Seacrest. “It was a long relationship that created heartbreak and created happiness and a lot of different emotions that I wanted to write about. There’s a lot of that on this album.”;
However, he shoots down rumors that his new album will have a response track to Selena’s “The Heart Wants What It Wants,”; a song clearly inspired by her frequently rocky relationship with Justin.
Last month, Selena opened to V magazine up about her “first love.”;
“When you’re young and you’re being told so many different things … it almost felt like all we had was each other, like the world was against us, in a way,”; the 22-year-old “I Want You To Know”; singer explained about her and Justin’s relationship. “It was really weird but it was incredible. …I think the next time [I have a boyfriend] will be much different … That’s a growing up kind of thing. I was 18 years old, and it was my first love.”;
Similarly, Justin has since moved on. “”I’m single right now,”; he tells Seacrest, “and I do enjoy it.”;
Right now, his focus is on his music. He reveals that he’s collaborating with Kanye West, who he previously worked with on a remix of his song “Runaway Love”; in 2010.
“I’ve been in the studio with him for the past month or so,”; he shares. “He just pushes you. He definitely wants it to be my way and my direction and he doesn’t want to steal what I want. That’s why artists like to go to him, because he pulls something out of you that other people don’t.”;
Is that why Taylor Swift is also collaborating with the controversial rapper? Last month, Kanye confirmed that a collaboration between him and the “Style”; singer is currently in the works, despite him infamously interrupting her at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.
