Selena Gomez Breaks Down Sobbing As She Talks About Troubled Relationship In New Video
By Jackie Willis
Selena Gomez's on-again, off-again relationship with Justin Bieber is always splashed across the headlines, but in her new emotional video for "The Heart Wants What It Wants," the 22-year-old singer expresses her own intense pain when talking about a tumultuous relationship.
The video opens with Gomez getting ready to go out and we hear audio of that appears to be coming from a phone call. Though she doesn't mention Bieber by name, she does reference that it's a guy that's done her wrong.
"When I was on stage and I was thinking of ...I felt like I know him though and I know his heart and I know he wouldn't do anything to hurt me," she says. "But I didn't realize that feeling so confident and feeling so great about myself ...and then it just be completely shattered by one thing."
That's when she begins to cry uncontrollably. "By something so stupid, but then you make me feel crazy. You make me feel like it's my fault," she says through sobs. "I was in pain."
Also, in a rather candid interview with Ellen DeGeneres this past month, Gomez did admit that she's still a work in progress. "You know this year's been... I feel like I have been doing this so long that people tend to forget that they're all like, 'be yourself, be yourself', and I'm still trying to figure out who that is."
She added, "So, I know I’m not perfect, but I know I have a lot of people that support me and love me. I don't know, I don't want to let anyone down. So I just try to be the best I can be. It's awkward being 20."
