It seems like we hear about Selena Gomez every week and we love her but this came as a surprise.
Before she got back with current boyfriend Justin Bieber she had a rumored love connection with Charlie Puth in 2016.
He is now opening up about the relationship and specifically how it inspired their duet, “We Don’t Talk Anymore.”
He says “I don’t kiss and tell, but the only way a song like that can come across as real is if there’s something else going on behind the scenes,” This was said in his latest Billboard cover.
He also goes on to say “And that’s what was happening with Gomez. Very short-lived, very small, but very impactful. And it really messed me up. I’m trying to put this the best way possible: It wasn’t like I was the only person on her mind. And I think I knew that going in — what I was getting myself into.”
I mean, He doesn’t name any names but we all know who it was (We’re pointing at you Bieber!) also in the interview he says “It’s about a particular moment in my life, when someone very close to me wanted the attention of somebody else,” Puth says, before admitting that he wasn’t entirely blameless in the relationship’s dissolution. “When I found that out and we ended it, I might have done some shady things too, and she might have asked me, ‘How long has this been going on?’”
“You gather up a bunch of emotion with the life shovel, throw it in the life bucket, mix it up. And she evoked such good emotion on that song, it was a pleasure working with her. That’s why I’m always happy to sing it, even though it came from a dark point in my life.”
