That Selena Gomez must be real special to her boyfriend Justin Bieber. So much so that the teen pop stud covered his Canadian homeboy Drake’s woozy love song “Trust Issues” to sing about how there’s only one girl (presumably Selena) he can rely on not to break his heart.
‘You’re the only one/ ‘Cause I don’t trust these women/ They might have me slipping,” Bieber croons. The lyrics are a slight remix to Drake’s more aggressive “I don’t trust these b—-es.”
Either way, the message is the same: She’s the one for him. They certainly looked happy together last night at MTV’s 2011 VMAs. The Biebs gave Gomez a kiss after winning the Best Male Video award for “U Smile.”
The idea here isn’t an unfamiliar one. Stories of rich guys fearful of gold diggers and groupies come a dime a dozen. This one’s no “Billie Jean,” either But I do appreciate the sentiment.
Rarely do men admit their fears and also profess their love for one lady on the same record. I hope this is the lane Justin’s traveling down on his next album. At 17, there’s some maturity here.
And on a more basic level, I’m glad his voice is growing as he ages. It’s rough being a star at such a young age mostly because nature and time are undefeated. There’s a chance that the sweet voice that sang “Baby” could’ve died during the transition from tighty-whities to boxers.
Anyway, listen to the track after the jump.
What do you think of Bieber’s rendition of “Trust Issues”?
