The world will get to hear a new side of Selena Gomez when her new album, ‘Revival’ drops Oct. 9. On that album is a song called ‘Kill Em With Kindness,’ which sounds a lot like something you say to an ex — could it be about Justin Bieber?
Considering the history Selena Gomez, 23, and Justin Bieber, 21, have, she surely has plenty of material to work with when it comes to her songwriting. One song on her upcoming album, Revival, is called “Kill Em With Kindness,” and its title has fans wondering if Justin is the man behind it. See what she had to say about that speculation below!

Selena has already admitted that Revival — which you can buy here — is her most personal album ever, so it’s extremely likely that at least one of the songs has to do with a past relationship. Whether that means Justin or not, well, we’ll let Selena explain that one! “‘Kill them with kindness’ is something I’ve always done,” the singer told Us Weekly. “When people give me their worst, I give them my best.”
Sneaky answer, Sel! She might not have revealed that the song is specifically about the Biebs, but she definitely seems to be hinting that the song is about someone that has done her wrong in the past!
Although Selena didn’t elaborate on her song’s meaning, Justin has been extremely open about their relationship in recent interviews. In fact, he even admitted that they would “fight so hard” when they were together! Hmm…fighting with an ex sounds like a great reason to kill them with kindness, right Selena?
Since Sel didn’t give us a clear answer on whether “Kill Em With Kindness” is about Justin, we’ll just have to wait until the song comes out to get a better idea of the song’s subject. And who knows, with how honest Justin has been about their past lately, he just might have a comeback if the song is about him! With or without the Biebs, we can’t wait to hear the song!
Do you think Selena wrote “Kill Em With Kindness” about Justin, HollywoodLifers? Are you excited to hear the song and the rest of Revival? Tell us below!
