And the Jelena drama continues. Justin Bieber released his music video for ‘Where Are U Now’ on June 29, and while some fans may be focusing on his sexy dance moves, our attention has been on the messages that flash across the screen. One reads, ‘WHERE R NOW, Selena.’
We’re confused. During one part of his “Where Are U Now” video, Justin Bieber, 21, seems to confirm that his relationship with Selena Gomez, 22, is over for good, but then at another point, he seems to be calling out to his ex while singing, “I need you the most.” So which is it? Are you over her, or do you “need” her, as the lyrics suggest? See the new message here.
In the video, people are seen going into a gallery and drawing over photos of Justin’s face. At one point during the psychedelic video, a message reads, “Where r now, Selena.” We’re assuming the word “you” is missing. This is interesting because there’s a second Jelena reference in the video, but that one seems to confirm that their relationship is over for good. So how does Justin really feel? We’ll let you watch the video above and leave the messages up to your own interpretation.
“Justin wrote this record during a tough time in his life and it comes to us that sometimes, as artists, we are also just objects and we have to take that as much as we have to use that to create,” Skrillex and Diplo wrote in a statement with the video on YouTube. “We all do this for you, respect that you put us here and it’s Ü that made the video.”
Could that “difficult time” be his breakup with Selena Gomez? When asked, Justin’s camp said that all the art in the video is fan art, and they’re not messages from Justin.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Is Justin trying to call out to Selena Gomez? Should she respond? Tell us how you feel!
