Selena Gomez Covers “Cry Me A River” After Breaking Up With Justin Bieber & Confesses “I’ve Been Through A Lot!”
Selena Gomez is not keeping quiet about her feelings towards her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber.
Just weeks after breaking up with the 18-year-old Canadian superstar, the singer songwriter decided to cover Justin Timberlake‘s “Cry Me A River” at a private concert on behalf of UNICEF. Written by Timberlake after Britney Spears allegedly cheated on him and caused their breakup, the song has become the theme song for bad celebrity breakups.
“I’ve been through a lot the past few months. It’s been weird and sad and cool,” the 20-year-old told the crowd before singing the song that Bieber ironically covered a few months ago at a concert in Boston, Massachusetts. “This song definitely speaks to me.”
Gomez also seemed to be sending subliminal messages with her other cover of the night, Taylor Swift‘s hit “I Knew You Were Trouble.” She introduced the song to the crowd saying, “It’s by my best friend in the entire world and if anybody has felt anything painful to their heart, they know who this girl is. Sing along if you know it.”
Before the show, Gomez gushed about her BFF. “Taylor is one of the most inspirational, positive, good-hearted people I know,” she said. “I met her when she was 18…it was absolutely incredible to see someone so successful and so humble. I think she’s been a big part of me staying who I am, too.”
