With Justin Bieber‘s new single, “Boyfriend,” selling roughly 2 gazillion copies in its first few days of release, no doubt many a tweenage girl is pretending the song is about her. But because he knows his fans aren’t going anywhere and he’s clearly not worried about death threats aimed at his loved ones, Justin made the bold choice to reveal who the song was actually written for in a recent interview.
Asked by Carson Daly how Selena Gomez feels about the track, the Biebs replied, “She loves it. It is about her.” Your first thought on reading that might be something along the lines of, “How sweet. He wrote a song for his girlfriend.” But really, Justin’s version of “writing” a song is being in the same room with the 15 guys the studio paid to the actual work. As far as saying the song is about Selena – what choice does he have? This is an 18 year old kid who’s getting laid for the first time in his life. He’s not gonna jeopardize that by saying, “I dunno. I think it’s about some chick my producer knew in the 70s.”
