The man who is the biggest fan of countdowns in the history of pop music is now getting his own countdown week on The Ellen Show. To promote the November 13 release of Justin Bieber’s new album Purpose (is there someone living in a cave that isn’t aware he has an album coming out on Friday?), the Biebs will be appearing on the afternoon talk show every day this week. We’re still not convinced he went home after his last appearance.
Ellen started the week strong, grilling Bieber about his naked Bora-Bora picture and diving into his past relationship with Selena Gomez. “It is tough,” said Justin of their highly publicized break ups. “There’s lots of stuff that reminds me of her.”
When questioned by the famous TV host about whether the young couple would ever reconcile, Bieber was noncommittal, but optimistic. “Maybe. I mean, we have a lot of history together. So I’m sure that it could possibly happen, but I think we’re both just on our own journeys of figuring ourselves out.”
DeGeneres also pressed this singer on which songs from the new album were inspired by Gomez, but the only answer Justin gave without prompting was Mark My Words (the titles Sorry and What Do You Mean were supplied for him, so were not totally convinced those were actually written for Selena).
In the end, Bieber’s greatest hope is that his ex has a bright future. “I just want her to be happy, honestly.”
Bieber also performed his single Sorry on The Ellen Show, but that wasn’t the only new piece of music to come from the Canadian pop singer today. While being interviewed by BBC’s Radio 1 host Zane Lowe this morning, Bieber debuted two new album tracks.
Love Yourself was co-written by Ed Sheeran and shows a different side of the lovelorn Bieber. Rather than reminiscing about a lost love, Justin is happily moving on after realizing an ex wasn’t right for him. Bieber sings “For all the times you made me feel small/ I fell in love now I fear nothin’ at all/ I never felt so low when I was vulnerable/ Was I a fool to let you break down my walls?”
In addition to Love Yourself, Bieber also premiered the full version of his Halsey collaboration The Feeling. Fans first caught a small snippet of the song when it was used in the trailer for Purpose released last week.
Justin Bieber’s fourth studio album Purpose is set to be released this Friday. But you already knew that.
