Selena Gomez wore her heart on her sleeve for “The Heart Wants What It Wants” performance at the American Music Awards Sunday night.
Standing still in front of a large LED-screen displaying breaking glass, dark clouds and other serious imagery, Selena sang her heart out in front of millions. Selena’s pain from her breakup with ex Justin Bieber was evident – mouthing “Thank you Jesus” and singing “I thought you were the one.”
They catch Taylor Swift’s reaction at the end, clearly feeling for her bestie.
At first I thought it was kind of annoying Selena had a song about Bieber, but over time I think it’s incredibly brave to bare her soul through music. Hopefully she finds this experience therapeutic and can heal and, honestly, move the fuck on from him. Then again, maybe not. The heart wants what it wants.
