The 21-year-old pop star opened up to Australian radio show hosts Kylie and Jackie O about his current relationship status and revealed that he doesn’t want to enter a relationship anytime soon because he’s still reeling from his previous coupling with Selena Gomez.
“I haven’t been in a relationship for a while now,” Justin confessed. “I’m chillin’, just hanging out and being by myself.”
But that doesn’t mean he’s writing off relationships forever. When Kyle asked the “Home to Mama” singer why a young pop star would ever want to be in a relationship, he revealed, “I’m a relationship type of guy.”
“I love to be in love, and I love cuddling,” he added. “I love all that stuff, but I got my heartbroken, so I’m just trying to let that heal up.”
But it seems that it might not be real after all! When Jackie rephrased her question, focusing on how fans noticed it at all rather than whether it had anything to do with his ex, Justin answered, “I think that might be fake.”
It’s unclear who is responsible if that’s the case, but he did say again it wasn’t anyone on his team.
“That wasn’t me that did that,” he added.
Regardless, it isn’t the first time Gomez has mysteriously appeared in one of his music videos. Her name also made a cameo in “Where Are Ü Now?” Justin’s forthcoming album will probably be somewhat emotional in nature, as he has gone through a lot over the past couple of years. He has come a long way in rehabilitating his reputation, and proved to fans he was finally back to his old self when he became so overwhelmed at the 2015 VMAs that he cried.
