Selena Gomez taps Charli XCX for new music.
Gomez is hard at work on her forthcoming studio album, a followup to 2015’s Revival. There’s already major hype surrounding it. Interscope head honchos are labeling the new music “next-level.” Helping her create it is British pop star and accomplished songwriter, Charli XCX. The Sun is reporting the pair have penned a new song titled “Bad Girlfriend” for Sel’s next record. You may recall Charli wrote “Same Old Love” and contributed background vocals for it.
The song is about “how the woman takes the blame for a relationship going sour despite the man’s questionable behavior.”
Here are a couple lyrics from the track:
“I know I’m not there for you or there when you call. I’m a bad girlfriend / I’m a bad girlfriend.”
A source described it as well: “It’s all about a boyfriend the girl is no longer really into and has finally gotten wise to. It’s tongue-in-cheek and Selena and Charli knew exactly who they were writing about.
Naturally, we are to assume it’s aimed at Justin Bieber.
“She sings about how a good girlfriend would just carry on and let their boyfriend walk all over them, with their cheating and whatnot, but she’s changed her ways.
They add: “It will undoubtedly be tweaked but they were really happy with how the songwriting session went and were loving slating their exes.”
In recent weeks, Selena and The Weeknd have gone Instagram official. They shared a couple of smooches on Instagram as they jet-set around the world. Dragging Bieber in a new song seems like an unnecessary step backwards. Leave the trash talking to Abel I guess… but I appreciate the hustle.
