Justin Bieber has released an intriguing snippet of a new song called “It’s Working” on Instagram which sounds as if it’s meant to be a diss against his on-again, off-again, girlfriend Selena Gomez. In the song, the Biebster seems to be expressing his heartfelt sadness at someone who, according to one of the main line, knows “exactly what to do to hurt me.”
After that line, Justin Bieber, 20, follows up with the words, repeated twice, presumably to emphasize the deep, emotional pain he’s suffering, “it’s working.” The snippet of the song has led many people writing about it to theorize he’s singing about Selena Gomez, 21. This may or may not be the case, but Justin has loved and left many young women behind, himself, who very likely have felt the same about him, and who experienced the pain of being heartbroken.
Just this last March, the romance between Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez seemed to be back on, when the Biebs made a trip to Texas to see Gomez perform at a concert. They spent quite a bit of time together there, worked on their dance moves at a studio, and seemed to be rekindling their romance. However, now whatever sparked their renewed romantic interest in each other in March seems to have fizzled out.
Though a reporter for MTV.com has termed the song fragment a “social media serenade,” could it be that it’s actually a “social media charade,” which is merely a calculated attempt to win back Selena Gomez, rather than a way to express genuine emotional heartache the Biebster is feeling? Or, perhaps it’s a combination of both of these reason that compelled Justin Bieber to write “It’s Working.”
Selena Gomez has recently stated that she feels Justin Bieber is more interested in “models” than in her. Justin has been seen in the company of several attractive models of late, including Victoria Secret model Barbara Palvin, who he was spotted with May 22 aboard a boat during the Cannes Film festival. Before that, he’d gone out with a fitness model, Yovanna Ventura.
Could it be that the models were just dalliances, while, all along, Justin Bieber really only wanted to be with the one, true love of his life, Selena Gomez? Or, were they the proverbial ports in a storm, available at the time, which he took full advantage of?
Selena has been on an emotional roller coaster ride, herself. Her parents seem to think that Justin has been a bad influence on her, at least when it comes to smoking pot. When Selena went into rehab, and came out, she seemed to have decided that she no longer needed either pot nor Justin Bieber as a part of her life anymore.
Justin Bieber might very well have been singing about how he feels about Selena Gomez in the song he’s working on, “It’s Working.” Whoever he’s singing about, whatever it is that she’s done and is doing, Justin says in the words of his song that “it’s working.” Is the song about Selena Gomez, or possibly has the Biebs merely drawn inspiration from his romance with her and other women he’s dated? Whenever the rest of the song is completed, perhaps we’ll know, one way or the other, exactly who the song is about!
