During her first live performance of ‘The Heart Wants What It Wants,’ Selena Gomez had tears streaming down her face. But was she really crying over Justin Bieber? HollywoodLife.com has the TRUTH!
Selena Gomez, 22, took the stage at the 2014 American Music Awards on Sunday, Nov. 23 to perform her heartwrenching ballad, “The Heart Wants What It Wants.” She has already admitted that the song is about her on-again/off-again relationship with Justin Bieber, 20 — so is that why she couldn’t stop crying during her performance?
Selena Gomez’s AMAs Performance: Crying Over Justin Bieber?
If you’re a human being with a heart, chances are you were clutching your heart as Selena practically wept through her performance at the 2014 AMAs.
It was the first time she had ever performed the song — “The Heart Wants What It Wants — live, and it was clearly painful for her to get through. After all, the song is about her tumultuous relationship with her infamous ex, Justin.
However, were her tears definitely for Justin — or was she just nervous to sing the ballad live?
A HollywoodLife.com insider was backstage at the awards show, and revealed to us EXCLUSIVELY that once Selena was off the stage she was definitely relieved.
In fact, once the performance was over she stopped crying immediately and seemed extremely grateful that she didn’t mess up — even through tears.
Justin’s BFF Congratulated Selena On Twitter
In a somewhat awkward turn of events, one of Justin’s closest friends — Lil Twist — took to Twitter immediately after Selena’s performance to congratulate her.
“GOOD SH**T SELENA!!” Lil Twist wrote, although it’s unclear whether or not he was with Justin while watching the performance.
It’s definitely interesting that someone so close to Justin would be watching the show live, especially while she was performing such a personal ballad about her ex.
