Selena Gomez says she 'dodged a bullet' in surprise second song, seemingly about moving on from Justin Bieber

Business Insider Lifestyle 1 month ago

Just one day after dropping her first solo single in over a year, Selena Gomez surprised fans and released another called "Look At Her Now" at midnight on Thursday.

The follow-up to "Lose You to Love Me," an emotional piano ballad, is an upbeat electro-pop song with a message of post-breakup empowerment.

"Of course she was sad / But now she's glad she dodged a bullet," Gomez sings. "Took a few years to soak up the tears / But look at her now, watch her go."

As with "Lose You to Love Me," fans are convinced that "Look At Her Now" is about her most recent split from Justin Bieber in 2018.

The song's first verse describes falling in love at a young age and feeling betrayed: "They fell in love one summer / A little too wild for each other," she sings. "It was her first real lover / His too 'til he had another / Oh god, when she found out / Trust levels went way down."

The "Bad Liar" and "Sorry" singers began dating when they were teenagers in 2011. Amidst their numerous breakups and reconciliations, Gomez accused Bieber of being unfaithful.

After reuniting once again in October 2017, they split for the final time that following March. Months later, Bieber got married to Hailey Baldwin.

Although Gomez hinted at Bieber's marriage in her previous single, "Look At Her Now" expresses hope about her own future: "She knows she'll find love / Only if she wants it."

"I felt having these two songs released back to back completed the story of how one can rise no matter what challenges life brings," Gomez said in a statement, as reported by Rolling Stone. "Turning off the noise and living your life on your terms."

Gomez also said during an Instagram Live that that the song and music video are "only for my fans."

"This is my anthem. This was the moment that I wanted to tell people, 'It's all good,'" she said. "My fans have been so supportive and they stick by my side for the craziest things in my life and I wanted this to be a representation of the strength that I've gotten and a way of me saying, like, 'This is where I am now.'"

Naturally, fans are thrilled that Gomez is happy and appears to have moved on.
