Justin Bieber Opens Up About Selena Gomez Breakup Song “Nothing Like Us”
Justin Bieber opens up about his breakup with Selena Gomez, discusses the song he wrote about their split, and defends Chris Brown in a new Billboard cover story. He also premiered the song, called “Nothing Like Us.”
Bieber is struggling to cope with the end of his relationship with Gomez. “I’m not in the happiest place that I’ve ever been,” he says. “I’m trying to get through what I’m going through. Like I said, I have my really close friends to cheer me up and keep me going.”
When the interviewer points out that the track is less “angry” than it is “sweet,” Bieber explains, “Because at the end of the day, there’s nothing like us, you know? That’s just it. It is what it is. People are going to relate to that.”
Asked about all the speculation pertaining to what happened between him and his ex, Bieber replies, “There’s so many rumors. People say I call Selena every day and she won’t pick up the phone or I’m chasing her down, and these are all fake stories.” Bieber explains, “I don’t go on blogs or anything like that. I hear things. People tell me if something happens on the Internet. It gets back to me, definitely.”
He will not attend the Grammys next month, but he had an interesting answer when asked whom he’ll be rooting for that night. “Chris Brown. I’m a fan. His music is really good. That’s what they should focus on: the music,” says Bieber.
