Justin Bieber did not voice the intro voicemail to Selena Gomez’s just leaked new song “Love Will Remember.”
That is the easy to understand message from the 19-year-old’s rep given exclusively to Gossip Cop.
Much of the debate about the mid-tempo song — a cut on Gomez’s upcoming Stars Dance album —stemmed from the songstress’ previous reveal that the song is about her stormy relationship with Bieber.
“That’s the most personal track on the record, for sure,” the 20-year-old told InStyle in May. “I think it’s a sweet way of releasing it. It’s not an aggressive approach to what people are probably expecting… I’m sure he’ll love it too.”
But no matter how much ‘Jelena’ fans want Bieber to be the voice on Gomez’s song declaring:
“Hey babe, it’s me. I just want to call and tell you that I love you so, so, so, so much. I just wanted to let you know that you are my princess. You are worthy of all the love in the world. You are the love of my life.”
It isn’t him.
It’s not hard to see why fans are in a lather though. Recent revelations that the on-again, off-again ex-beau’s spent Independence Day together, followed by the Canadian’s reveal of an Instagram of the pair on July 5, has sparked reams of speculation that the once-couple are a couple again.
According to E! News, a source confirms the pair have not rekindled their romance, although reps for both stars declined to comment on the story.
“They are trying to maintain a friendship,” the insider reportedly said.
But all may not be lost.
Bieber’s mom, Pattie Mallette, swung by Fox and Friends Tuesday to talk up the new teen edition of her 2012 best seller Nowhere But Up, and in the process threw ‘Jelena’ devotees a bone.
At the end of a discussion about her pregnancy at 18 with Justin, a brief mention of the child abuse she endured, experimentation with drugs and drink, depression, and her attempted suicide at age 17 — all subjects covered in her book — co-host Steve Doocy asked Mallette whether Bieber and Gomez were back together.
“It depends what day it is. I can’t keep up.”
So, to recap: Justin Bieber is not the owner of the whiny voice at the beginning of Gomez’s “Love Will Remember,” but in real life ‘Jelena’ may well be leaving romantic voicemails for each other.
