Selena Gomez has given no signs of heartache or distress after her most recent break-up with Justin Bieber. Rather, the star chose to sing Justin Timberlake’s ode to the relationship gone awry, “Cry Me A River” at a recent UNICEF concert.
She addressed the crowd before singing the famed song, stating, “I’ve been through a lot the past few months. It’s been weird and sad and cool. This song definitely speaks to me.”
Although the star didn’t mention Bieber during her brief introduction, there appears to be a definite link. A few months ago the Canadian singer covered the same song at a concert. The song seemed to bring her suppressed feelings regarding the break up to the surface. A source at the event claimed the star “seemed so angry” while singing the song.
Amidst the relationship drama, Gomez has turned to her best friend, singer Taylor Swift, for support. She stated, “Taylor is one of the most inspirational, positive, good-hearted people I know. I met her when she was 18…it was absolutely incredible to see someone so successful and so humble, I think she’s been a big part of me staying who I am, too.”
Despite the hardships the past few months have brought upon the young star, Gomez continues to keep her head high. She stated, “Everything happens for a reason, so enjoy every moment.”
