One of the tracks, Vulnerable, accused the Sorry singer of winning her over only to break her heart.
‘If I give you every piece of me, I know that you could drop it / Give you the chance, I know that you could take advantage once you got it / If I open up my heart to you, I know that you could lock it / Throw away the key and keep it there forever in your pocket.’
The Wizards Of Waverly Place vet also made it clear that she was a fool to trust the Canadian.
‘If I show you all my demons, and we dive into the deep end / Would we crash and burn like every time before?’ the song lyrics read.
He did her wrong? Bieber seen on Tuesday after revealing he has suffered from Lyme Disease
So painful: After she split from Bieber in early 2018, he started dating Hailey Baldwin. They soon after became engaged and then they wed in the summer of 2018 with another wedding in 2019
‘I would tell you all my secrets, wrap your arms around my weakness / If the only other option’s letting go.’
There is also the song People You Know where she talks being replaced.
‘So many wasted nights with you, I still could taste it. I hate it, wish I could take it back ’cause we use to be close, But people can go, From people you know to people you don’t. And what hurts the most is people can go, From people you know to people you don’t.’
This came after a revealing interview in which she touched on the battle she has had with mental health issues over the years.
The star told the WSJ Magazine’s February Talents And Legends Issue, which will hit newsstands on January 18, that she is much better now.
‘I found out I do suffer from mental health issues,’ the 27-year-old star confessed. ‘And, honestly, that was such a relief. I realized that there was a way to get help and to find people that you trust. I got on the right medication, and my life has been completely changed.’

The former Barney star continued: ‘My highs were really high, and my lows would take me out for weeks at a time.’
Gomez has now been working with therapists for more than six years, she told WSJ Magazine.
And she has ‘been in and out of treatment facilities.’
What has also helped is staying off Instagram which struck some as strange because she has a stunning 165M followers, more than Kim Kardashian and Katy Perry.
‘I’d rather stay away from anything that’s going to make me feel like s***,’ she said.
‘I got back on [Instagram] because I was releasing music, but I just told my best friend Courtney [Lopez] yesterday, I’m going to have to take it off my phone again soon,’ she says. ‘They know I have an addictive personality, and it can be unhealthy.’
‘I feel like I was supposed to go through everything I’ve gone through.’
‘I had low self-esteem, and that’s something I work on continuously. But I feel so empowered because I’ve gained so much knowledge about what was going on mentally,’ she said.
She also talked about suffering from Lupus, which involved her getting a kidney transplant.
‘The lupus was a huge thing that happened to me, then the kidney thing happened, and that was the scariest because, yeah, you could actually die,’ she says. The transplant was a two-hour surgery.
‘The moment I came out I remember starting to shake and my mom screaming and then being put back under,’ she recalled.
Due to complications, the surgery lasted another seven hours, and in the process her doctors had to use arteries from her legs, reported the WSJ Magazine
‘That’s what makes you go, You know what, I’m just so happy to be alive,’ she added.

Her Rare album is a reflection of her painful 2018 split from Justin Bieber and his subsequent romance with Hailey Baldwin.
The former Disney star now admits that she was so derailed by his change of heart that she has been single ever since. ‘I need time by myself,’ the cover girl shared. ‘I love going to my room at the end of the day. Just me and my dog. I got the full granny panties situation, stretched out in my bed.’
And all those men she has been linked to since 2018 like One Direction vet Niall Horan? All friends.
‘I’ve been single for over two years now,’ she confirmed.
And her writing partner Julia Michaels also said that Selena has confessed that she wants a new boyfriend.
‘Justin [Tranter] and I will go to the studio before [Gomez arrives] and gather ideas,’ Michaels said.
‘I’ll text her to say, ‘What kind of mood are you in?’ One time she responded, ‘I’m feeling strong and happy,’ and then she said at the end of the text: ‘I really just want a boyfriend.”
‘I thought we should do a song about it. Of the resultant song, I Want a Boyfriend, Tranter says, ‘One of the lyrics is about a fine line between a want and a need. Yes, she wants a boyfriend, but it’s not a need. She’s OK on her own, and we all should be too.’
