At a recent stop on her Stars Dance tour on Wednesday, Selena Gomez reportedly wept during her ballad "Love Will Remember." "You could practically see her walls coming down around her," wrote a Hollywood Life's concert reviewer, describing the moment when Gomez began to cry during her performance at Brooklyn's Barclays Center. "She wasn’t about to confide her deepest, darkest secrets to thousands of strangers, but not every superstar would be willing to appear so vulnerable in front of a screaming crowd."
True, she didn't confide her deepest, darkest secrets. But since the original version of the song included a voicemail message from ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber, it's widely believed that it's, well, about him.
Gomez and Bieber have been the subject of are-they-or-aren't-they speculation ever since they officially broke up last January. They've fueled the rumors themselves as paparazzi have caught them out together on numerous occasions. Bieber has said that his song "Heartbreaker" is about his own recent heartbreak, and the lyrics certainly sound like they could be about Gomez: “Girl you don’t know how I feel/since you ran away/Any chance you could take my call/if I dialed you today."
Could all this mean that these two are heading back together? Not necessarily. Song lyrics can be interpreted in many ways. Bieber's allegedly moved on to a new love interest. And Gomez herself was quick to set the record straight about why she was crying at her concert. Apparently, she wasn't able to meet with fans after the show, and she was broken up about it. She sent an Instagram message shortly afterwards…
"Never ended such a beautiful show in tears because they wouldn't allow me to Instagram tonight," she wrote. "Completely heart broken and pissed. Thank you SO much Brooklyn. Ill be stopping outside Letterman tomorrow to make it up to you if you can make it. I love you guys more than you know. Promise."
It's her concert, and she can cry if she wants to. The reason why she's crying is her own business.
