American star, Selena Gomez, who famously dated Canadian singers Justin Bieber and The Weekend has seemingly taken a swipe at the duo with her new single, Boyfriend.
Selina and Justin had an on and off romance that lasted from 2010 to 2018 before they called things quits and Justin went on to marry model Hailey Baldwin, 23.
While Selina also had a relationship with The Weeknd between 2017 and 2018. However, her latest single laments making repeated mistakes when it comes to love.
Selena Gomez dated Nick Jonas in 2008, She appeared in the music video for his band’s song “Burnin’ Up”. In December 2010, Gomez began dating Justin Bieber, they broke up totally in March 2018.
Gomez reportedly started dating The Weeknd in January 2017 and they moved in together temporarily in September 2017 in Greenwich Village, New York and broke up shortly after.
Part of the lyrics of the song says:
I want a boyfriend/But I just keep hitting dead ends/Try to take a shortcut, but I get cut again and again. I want a boyfriend/Tell me, are there any good ones left?/I keep finding the wrong ones, but I want love again and again.
She has taken to her Instagram page to say that she does not want a boyfriend anytime soon.
In her words:
It’s a lighthearted song about falling down and getting back up time and time again in love, but also knowing that you don’t need anyone other than yourself to be happy. We wrote it long before our current crisis, but in the context of today, I want to be clear that a boyfriend is nowhere near the top of my list of priorities. Just like the rest of the world, I’m praying for safety, unity, and recovery during this pandemic.
