Selena Gomez dropped her single “Back To You” last month after she and Justin Bieber go back together. When the song, that is about getting back together with your ex no matter how problematic they are, came out everyone was like “This is obviously about Bieber, right?” There was never any confirmation that it was about Bieber, but do we even need confirmation?
The song was about how she has a tailspin romance with someone, then broke up and now they’re back together. You don’t have to be Sherlock Holmes to figure this one out.
The music video for the single came out and its cutesy corny plotline has fans believing it reveals some details about Gomez’s and Bieber’s tumultuous time together.
The video starts with Gomez at a party standing in between a blonde haired boy and what appears to be a biracial guy with a man bun. Fans have taken this moment to represent Gomez moving in between The Weeknd and Bieber.
Refresher Gomez and The Weeknd broke up and literally days later she was spotted riding bikes with Bieber. One Gomez stan pointed out that the body language of the pseudo-Bieber and Weeknd is also important. The fake Weeknd’s back it towards Gomez while exceptionally tall fake Bieber is facing toward Gomez. All of this is reflective of the storyline of her romantic life.
The kicker is that Gomez leaves both pseudo ex-boyfriends for another random blonde boy. Seriously how many blonde boys are at this party?
Her and ambiguous blonde boy steal a car and have a cute date in a field. Then they are wanted for theft and so Gomez decides she can’t go to jail and burns the car. The ambiguous blonde boy is pissed that she burned the object that brought them joy and adventure. He silently yells at her that she’s “too passionate.” Their relationship is crumbling.
But then we are brought back to the beginning of the movie at the party where the two toxic people met and they get back together.
Many fans think her relationship with the ambiguous blonde is actually representative of her relationship with Bieber. After watching this music video more times than I’d like to admit I have to agree.
Not only are there micro references to her time with Bieber, polaroids and the mention of Canada. But the moment of the whiplash relationship is equivalent to how quickly Gomez and Bieber got back together and then fell apart.
Watch the video for yourself and comment below what you think.
