Justin Bieber is pouring out his emotions on his next album. The 21-year-old singer revealed in a new interview with Ryan Seacrest on April 2 that Selena Gomez inspired his new music! Watch the video here.
Justin Bieber, 21, stopped by Ryan Seacrest‘s radio show on April 2 to not only announce that he will be performing at Wango Tango on May 9, but to talk about his next album, which is he said is heavily inspired by his ex, Selena Gomez, 22.
Justin Bieber’s New Album — Selena Gomez Inspired His New Music
“There is a lot of stuff that I’ve been going through over the last few years,” he said during his interview with Ryan. “I just really want to bleed it on this record. I want people to know that I’m not playing around. I’m not doing a record that is cookie cutter or doing something that I think people want to hear… I’ve been pretty silent about what I’ve been going through and just growing up in this life is hard, so I want to translate that.”
As you’ll see in the video above, Justin said that he does not have a track in response to Selena’s “The Heart Wants What It Wants” — a clear reference to her feelings for the Biebs — but his new songs are definitely inspired by his on-again/off-again relationship with his ex.
“A lot of my inspiration comes from her. It was a long relationship and a relationship that created heartbreak and created happiness and a lot of different emotions that I wanted to write about, so there’s a lot of that on this album,” he said.
This is so exciting. But we wonder how Selena feels about all of this. Unfortunately, it might be a while before we hear Justin’s new music, as he’s not in a hurry to release the new album.
Justin Bieber’s Not In A Rush To Release New Album
“I’m not in a rush, I just want to create the best piece of art that I can,” he said, but he added that he’s “not playing around.”
“I have been in the studio with [Kanye West] for the past month or so. I think that he just pushes you. He definitely wants it to be my way and my direction and he doesn’t want to steal what I want, but he pushes it. That’s why artists love to go to him because he pulls something out of you that other people don’t,” Justin said.
So Justin’s working on a new album about Selena Gomez and produced by Kanye West. This might end up being his best album yet!
