Justin Bieber's Breakup Song 'Nothing Like Us' Is About Split With Selena Gomez

Posted: Updated:

Selena Gomez told the world how she's feeling about her split with Justin Bieber with a cover of Justin Timberlake's "Cry Me A River," and now Bieber has a breakup song of his own directed at the former Disney star.

The 18-year-old told Billboard magazine that his new song, "Nothing Like Us," is all about the his split from Gomez, whom he dated for two years.

The lyrics to "Nothing Like Us" definitely mirror Bieber and Gomez's on-again, off-again romance and suggest he couldn't deal with their fighting anymore, as he sings about being confused by a girl who pushed him away:

"Lately I've been thinking, thinking about what we had / And I know it was hard, it was all that we knew, yeah / Have you been drinking, to take all the pain away?"

Bieber opened up about his breakup with the 20-year-old singer and actress for the first time, telling Billboard:

"I'm not in the happiest place that I've ever been. I'm trying to get through what I'm going through. Like I said, I have my really close friends to cheer me up and keep me going," he told the magazine.

As for all the speculation about what ended the former pop power couple's relationship, Bieber wouldn't elaborate, but he did clear up a few reports

"There's so many rumors. People say I call Selena every day and she won't pick up the phone or I'm chasing her down, and these are all fake stories," he told the magazine, adding that he tries not to pay attention to gossip."I don't go on blogs or anything like that. I hear things. People tell me if something happens on the Internet. It gets back to me, definitely."
