While Justin Bieber was busy mooning people on Instagram, his (supposedly) ex-girlfriend has a different stance. We don’t think she intends to get back at him or anything like that but Selena Gomez went pretty vocal at a charity event just a couple of nights ago.
The 20-year-old singer sang a couple of popular breakup tunes when she took the stage at the third annual UNICEF charity concert in New York City, including Justin Timberlake’s “Cry Me a River”. Oh, you know, the one that Justin (Timberlake, not Bieber) allegedly wrote with Britney Spears in mind post breakup. Before Selena sang it, she reportedly told the crowd, “I’ve been through a lot the past few months. It’s been weird and sad and cool. This song definitely speaks to me.”

The question is, was Selena Gomez trying to send Justin Bieber a message? And just in case you’ve forgotten the lyrics to “Cry Me a River”, it goes something like this:
You told me you loved me,
Why did you leave me, all alone?
Now you tell me you need me,
When you call me, on the phone.
Boy I refuse, you must have me confused,
With some other girl.
Your bridges were burned, and now it’s your turn,ADVERTISEMENT
To cry, cry me a river.
Selena also covered Taylor Swift’s “I Knew You Were Trouble”. After which, she gave Taylor a shout-out by saying, “It’s by my best friend in the entire world and if anybody has felt anything painful to their heart, they know who this girl is. Sing along if you know it.”
