It never rains, but it pours. Yesterday, The Weeknd appeared on a track that seems to be dissing Justin Bieber, something he might feel compelled to do because he’s now reportedly dating Bieber’s ex, Selena Gomez. For her part, Gomez has been on a tear lately, posing next-to-naked in a pic that can only evoke what now seems to be The Weeknd’s “Party Monster” lyric about her — “ass shaped like Selena” — and releasing a guest verse today that takes an ex to task.
Of course, Bieber kicked some of this off himself by calling The Weeknd’s music “wack,” but it doesn’t help that according to TMZ, yesterday he was also officially charged in an old assault case from last summer. Given that context, it can’t be easy to her Selena singing on Kygo’s latest single “It Ain’t Me” about an ex that let her down and how she won’t be there for him when he needs someone.
The chorus is pretty explicit: “Who’s going to walk you through the dark side of the morning / Who’s going to rock you when the sun won’t let you sleep / Who’s waking up to drive you home / When you’re drunk and all alone?” Then it finishes: “It ain’t me.” It’s not quite a Bob Dylan reference, but almost. Listen below, I have a feeling this saga is far from over.
