Selena Gomez released a mighty intense black and white music video that is undoubtedly about her on-again-of-again ex. You might know of him? Justin Bieber? Selena starts with a tear-ridden phone call and then breaks into emotional song. Although she does not have the "I want to pinch your cheeks" type of crying face, she is not afraid to show it multiple times throughout the music video. Based on the lyrics, this is a face the Biebs has seen often, unfortunately. If you have been waiting for an in-depth tale of the "modern fairytale" that is Jelena, and always wondered how her bed feels without him (spoiler: cold)—your prayers have been answered.
