Selena Gomez had many people thinking her latest singles, “Lose You to Love Me” and “Look At Her Now” are about her relationship with her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber. With lyrics like “You turned me down, and now it's showing / In two months you replaced us / Like it was easy,” it’s not that much of a stretch to think these songs are about the couple’s past relationship. In a recent interview with Zach Sang, Gomez opened up about writing her new music and said she hopes he’ll get a chance to listen.

When asked if she hopes “the individual” she wrote the songs about hears them Gomez said, “Yeah, I do.”

“For me, my intentions are never evil. They just aren’t,” she continued. “I don’t even know how to do that. I can be a bit snappy but I always want to come from a place that’s genuine, and when I feel like some things haven’t been said then I get to turn that into art.”

Gomez’s friend Taylor Swift has praised the singer on her recent accomplishments, telling Zane Lowe that “Lose You To Love Me” is “the best thing she's ever done.”

“I’m so proud of her. She’s been through so much,” Swift said. “I’ve watched so much happen in her life and had a front row seat to so much, and I’m so proud of her. She is such a revelation because now she’s making her best stuff. I am 100 percent convinced this is the best thing she's done so far.”
