Charlie Puth admits he briefly dated Selena Gomez
In a recent interview with Billboard, Charlie Puth dropped some major truth bombs about his rumoured relationship with Selena Gomez and the meaning behind their song 'We Don't Talk Anymore.'
Earlier in 2016, it was rumored that the two performers of We don't talk anymore are not just friends. However, they quickly denied it.
Charlie Puth has recently admitted his love for Selena in 2016. At the same time, he shared that his inspiration to create hit We don't talk anymore was Selena.
"I don't kiss and tell, but the only way a song like that can come across as real is if there's something going on behind the scenes," he said.
Charlie Puth admits Selena Gomez is the inspiration for the song We do not talk anymore.
He said that the song was highly honest and made of real feelings. His relationship with Selena Gomez was described: "And that's what was happening [with Gomez]. Very short-lived, very small, but very impactful. And it really messed me up. I'm trying to put this the best way possible: It wasn't like I was the only person on her mind. And I think I knew that going in - what I was getting myself into."
“It’s about a particular moment in my life, when someone very close to me wanted the attention of somebody else. When I found that out and we ended it,” Charlie added. Charlie implied that they broke up because she always thought about another person. He said he was not the only one in her mind. Charlie shared that he realized what was going on and decided to break up. However, he also admitted that he might have done some shady things too, and she might have asked him, 'How long has this been going on?'
The couple was happy to perform together after the split.
After a brief affair, Charlie Puth and Selena Gomez continue to co-perform We don't talk anymore on stage. Although the inspiration for the song comes from the sad moments of his life, Charlie still gave beautiful words to Selena: "You gather up a bunch of emotion with the life shovel, throw it in the life bucket, mix it up. And she evoked such good emotion on that song, it was a pleasure working with her. That’s why I’m always happy to sing it, even though it came from a dark point in my life."
