The 21-year-old "What Do You Mean?" singer opened up about his current single status in an interview with Australian radio hosts Kyle and Jackie O
on Monday, and revealed that he's been scarred from a previous relationship.
"I haven't been in a relationship for a while now," Justin said. "I'm chilling, just hanging out, being by myself, but the thing is I'm a relationship type of guy. I love to be in love, and I love cuddling. I love all that stuff, but I got my heart broken so I'm just trying to let that heal up."
If we're judging by his last two music videos -- in which he calls out his ex Selena Gomez in not so subtle ways
-- then it's not hard to jump to conclusions about who that special someone is. Still, Justin played innocent when asked point-blank about the Selena graffiti reference
in his "What Do You Mean?" video.
"I think that might be fake," he said. "That wasn't me that did that."
"I don't want to keep apologizing, I don't want to make everything about that," he explained. "Although I do want to say, 'Hey guys, I acknowledge it, I acknowledge that there was a period,' but we all do through that period. If we live through that time and don't move on from it, that's where we're gonna stay."
Still, Justin admitted that he might've been a little under the influence during the candid interview.
"I've had a few beers guys, don't judge me," he joked. "Maybe I'm just talking too openly."
Justin was similarly surprisingly open about his feelings
in an interview last month with Elvis Duran and The Morning Show
. "Trusting people is hard, especially for me," he shared. "I've trusted people who I probably shouldn't have trusted before and they've hurt my heart. I'm a pretty sensitive guy, so I'll lay it all on the line, and they'll kind of pull it. So now I'm figuring out there's certain people I can't do that with."
