Selena poured her heart out in her music video, ‘The Heart Wants What It Wants,’ and she admits it was all about Justin. But now fans are split as to whether it was good for her to put all her cards out on the table for the world to see.
Selena Gomez, 22, is normally so private but she let the world in on what was going on with her and Justin Bieber in “The Heart Wants What It Wants.” The singer had a microphone taped under a table when she filmed her opening monologue over one year ago. The video is raw, and many girls all over the world can relate to what Selena was and still seems to be going through.

But there are some people that feel like part of Selena’s “cool factor” was the fact that she was private and didn’t divulge what was going on in the world of Jelena.
Selena told Ryan Seacrest that Justin had heard the song and thought it was beautiful and our source tells us that Justin isn’t turned off by her new single at all.
“Justin is taking this song as a sign that they will get back together,” our source says. “Why else would she still be talking about him and how much she loves him? He sees this as a signal from her that she’s open to forgiving him. He still totally believes they’re soul mates and they’ll eventually be together. The song makes him sad. He loves Selena and he hates to think of her hurting. It’s a painful song. He’s not angry, he’s sad about it and he wants make it right.”
Selena said herself in her interview with Ryan: “Is the chapter over? I support him [Justin]. I think I always will. I’m upset when he’s upset, I’m happy when he’s happy. I don’t want anything bad ever happen to him. It hurts me. That’s all.”
During our HollywoodLife Says, Nov. 7, we talked about whether Selena should have released such an emotional song and we were split. Our editor in chief, Bonnie Fuller, thought it was exactly the right move, while our news editor, Emily Longeretta, says that it’s sending the wrong message to girls about getting back together with someone who was not good to you.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Selena is wrong to pour her heart out about Justin?
