All the Hidden Messages About Justin Bieber in “Back to You” Music Video
After days of teasing us with little gifs and stills from the highly anticipated music video, Sel finally gave her fans what they were all waiting for. The singer released the visual for her latest song, “Back to You” and it’s got major Jelena vibes.
Now, we know what you’re probably thinking — ‘but Selena never confirmed that the song is about Justin.’ Well, even if she hasn’t said a single word about it and you aren’t convinced that the track is about her ex and constantly going back to him, maybe the music video will change your mind.
First off, let’s talk about the 25-year-old’s co-star in the visual. He’s like, a dead-on ringer for the Biebs. Okay, maybe we’re being a little dramatic, but you gotta admit there were some shots where the actor totally looked like the singer’s on-again-off-again ex.
And of course, we have to talk about the very prominent and visual nod to Jelena’s ongoing on and off relationship. In the video, the singer and her on-screen crush both decided leave the party they’re at and steal a car for fun. However, all the fun and excitement eventually led to the two fighting with each other until Selena ultimately decides to go back to the same party that they had left earlier in the video.
Once these two return to the party and everything is seemingly back to normal, Selena then realizes after seeing her former crush at the party AGAIN that she’s still in love with him. Then the story restarts with the same dialogue and what we can only assume to be the same outcome because like Sel sings in the song, if she could do it all again, she knows she’d go back to him. Kinda like a certain *ahemJelenacough* whirlwind of a relationship, right?
Anyway, aside from subtly mirroring her relationship with Justin, we have to take a moment to talk about the guy in the pineapple button up next to Selena in the music video. Now, we don’t know about you, but he’s definitely giving us major Weeknd vibes with his unique hairdo and full on beard. We seriously can’t help but think this was also a subtle nod at her last relationship before Sel went back to Justin the last time.
Then again, everything in the video could be coincidental. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
