Is Selena Gomez Telling Off Nick Jonas & Bragging About Justin Bieber In Her New Song, 'Bang Bang Bang?'

Tue, June 7, 2011 2:35pm EDT by 65 Comments

Selena Gomez isn’t holding back her feelings in her new single, “Bang Bang Bang!” She bashes her ex-boyfriend and talks up her new man!

Selena Gomez certainly turned a corner from her uplifting and cheerful song, “Who Says,” in her most recent single “Bang Bang Bang.” For the first time, the 18-year-old beauty lets it rip against her ex-boyfriend and proudly sings about the man in her life — and you’d have to have been living under a rock to not think she’s talking about Nick Jonas and Justin Bieber.

Taking a page from her BFF Taylor Swift, Selena gets sweet revenge on the boy who broke her heart last year. Plus, she brags about her new boyfriend and even sings about his “swagger.” (For all of you who don’t obsessively follow teen pop culture, Justin, 17, has a “swagger coach” and is known to discuss his “swagger” abilities.)

Here are some of the more poignant lyrics:

My new boy used to be a model, he looks way better than you, he looks way better than you
His love is deeper you know. He’s a real keeper you know.

My new boy knows the way I want it.
He’s got more swagger than you, he’s got more swagger than you do.

He’s not hiding me
He’s showing me off you know?

When Nick and Selena dated, it always seemed like he was nervous to show her off. Plus, she was constantly being compared to his ex-girlfriend and first love, Miley Cyrus. Justin, on the other hand, treats Selena like a princess and isn’t afraid to be seen affectionately in public with her, nor to talk about how amazing she is. They’ve even gone on vacations all around the world together!

Regardless of who the song is actually about, I can’t help but love the beat. It has an electronic sound that we  haven’t heard much from Selena before. After her success with “Who Says,” there’s no doubt in my mind “Bang Bang Bang” will be a hit in the clubs this summer.

Selena’s full album, “When the Sun Goes Down,” drops June 28.

How can the same genius who brought us a year without rain also bring this monstrosity?

Come on, selena, you’re talented! You’re nice! My new boy used to be a model? Appearances don’t matter! This song isn’t you.

The song is nice, seriously. I’m actually starting to like the song – but then I saw this. It’s really hurtful. Especially to Nick. Imagine if your ex-gf wrote you a song comparing you to her new guy. And I think the reason Nick Jonas is “hiding” her is because he wants private relationships. Really, with that kind of private, the relationship looks more sweet, rather than pure PDA like Selena and Justin, it looks soooo fake.

I really don’t mind them together or anything. In fact, I think it’s cute. But I find the song really…annoying. I mean, Selena isn’t that kind of person, is she not? But I shouldn’t be one to talk because I don’t even know her.

So you mean this song will play in a stripper club so even adults can see how weird she is? Justin really needs to hide you and not show you off because of all the money it would take for him to give you surgery to get a brain instead of having a head filled with cob webs! Look on the bright side Justin might help you get your surgery you dreamed of having for 18 years! BANG BANG BANG really what have you been doing with Justin!?!?!??

i Love the Song :D But im not realy a big fan of selena but i like her && The Song :D i think her & Justin are so CUTE hahaha and just because she didnt write the song doesnt mean that its not about nick , she said in a interview that she treys to relate to her music and fans and that her music comes from a personal experience so dont you think that when they came to her with this song it reminded he of NICK . . . and thats why she recorded it . . DUHHHH this song is totally about Nick

selena co wrote this song. she hardly ever writes songs and she’s only co written two ‘i won’t apologize’ and ‘bang bang bang’ personally, i dont like this song and i dont think she should be an artist cause she needs auto tune and cant play any instruments and hardly ever writes her own songs.

Arggghh! Seriously! Stop it with this stuff!
Don’t post ANYTHING at all if it’s not true!
Us fans are tired of lame fake gossip!
Selena can’t write her own songs! She wrote ‘Falling Down’ though, but thats all she wrote. Geeezz people get your facts right! -.- -.-

Uhm, actually, Selena Gomez DID NOT co-write or write Falling Down. She actually co-wrote I Won’t Apologize. And it’s true that she co-wrote Bang Bang Bang. Check out the single’s wiki..

YOU should get your facts right.

For this song to be about Nick, Selena would have had to actually write it herself. However, she did not. Taylor Swift actually writes her own songs. Nick Jonas actually writes his own songs. Selena is NOT a musician. She can’t sing with out auto tune and definitely does not write her own material. And this song is a rip off of BulletProof by La Roux.

I wouldn’t doubt it may be about Nick and Justin, however if it is she is a real user. One minute she says they are still friends and the next – she is putting him down to make her boyfriend look better. She seems like a girl who is very needy, so good for her – she found a kid who is giving her what she needs. I had an idea she was all about publicity and Nick didn’t need someone like that in his life. He clearly has moved on and for the better. His talents are speaking for him not cheap publicity stunts.

Nothing against Jonas Brothers but I think it’s been proved that a Jonas can’t be a good boyfriend ( Kevin’s an exception). Nick’s basically hiding any relationship he has and Joe …. Well he’s just pathetic !!! I am happy for Selena. She’s spending her time with a guy whose behavior is more age appropriate compared to Nick.

I love this song so much. Already know it by heart. But yeah, she’s definitely talking about Justin and Nick. It’s cute though, I mean I love Justin, but he’s her man. LOL. And I hate Nick for being such a dick to her. HAHA. Nick the Dick. (:
Love you Selena <3

Actually, Selena did co-write this song with Toby Gad (she said so while hosting American Top 40 June 5th).

Oh god, there’s like one year’s difference between them. Unless you’re like 9 y.o. 1 year is nothing.

Nelena’s better. i mean, no offence but Justin should find someone who’s a little more close to his age. selena’s almost 19 this july and justin’s just 17..i only see them as a sister-brother couple, not as a love couple or whatever.you shouldnt date your “little brother” right? and “little brother” shouldnt date his “big sister/bestfriend”..so much for telling the whole world they’re just “best friends” and stuff..so much for lying..their fans are not stupid. just so you know, ACTIONS speak LOUDER than words..they see everything you do together..as much as you want to keep it private and DENY it, everything they did in hawaii wasnt private at all.they could’ve searched for a room. PDA much. there are 9 year olds who idolize them..like, REALLY? what if they saw those photos that are not for age 10 and below? you need parental guidance..dont ever forget, YOU HAVE ALSO FANS WHO ARE KIDS.and is younger than 6 y.olds. KBYE.

I suppose it would be okay if Justin was 18 and Selena was 17?

Whoever the song is about, I think Justin and Selena are a sweet couple that are acting no differently than any young couple in love their age
