Justin Bieber Admits Selena Gomez Definitely Inspired His New Album

The singer stopped by Ryan Seacrest’s radio show on Thursday (April 2) to announce that he will perform at KIIS FM’s Wango Tango concert on May 9 and to talk about his next album.

“There is a lot of stuff that I’ve been going through over the last few years,” he said. “I just really want to bleed it on this record. I want people to know that I’m not playing around. I’m not doing a record that is cookie cutter or doing something that I think people want to hear… I’ve been pretty silent about what I’ve been going through and just growing up in this life is hard, so I want to translate that.”

“A lot of my inspiration comes from her,” he said. “It was a long relationship and a relationship that created heartbreak and created happiness and a lot of different emotions that I wanted to write about, so there’s a lot of that on this album.”

Justin isn’t putting a timetable on when the music will be released — “I’m not in a rush, I just want to create the best piece of art that I can,” he said — but he did say that he’s “not playing around.” Clearly — he’s got Kanye West helping him in his big return.
