Justin Bieber is like any 21-year-old man: he’s not immune to heartbreak. Revealing to Australian radio hosts Kyle and Jackie O that he’s still nursing a broken heart, the singer opened up about his single status. “I haven’t been in a relationship for a while now,” he said. “I’m chilling and just hanging out. Just being by myself.”
He added: “I’m a relationship type of guy. I love to be in love and I love cuddling, and I love all of that kind of stuff. But I got my heart broken and so I’m just trying to let that heal up.”
It’s thought that Justin was referring to his ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez, following their split last year. Justin and Selena had been dating on-and-off since 2011, but their major break up came in October 2014.
Host Jackie quizzed Justin about his ex, asking him if he was trying to send her a subtle message in his new music video for What Do You Mean; during a skate park scene at the end of the video, the name Selena can be seen written in graffiti on a wall. But Justin dismissed the speculation, saying, “I think that might be fake”, before adding: “It wasn’t me that did that.”
Justin also spoke about putting the past behind him following his numerous, high-profile run-ins with the law in 2014. “I kind of distanced myself from a lot of friends and I’m doing a lot of stuff by myself recently,” he said. “I want to enjoy right now,” he added. “I don’t want to keep apologising.”
