Like basically every other starlet who has ever done a press tour, Selena Gomez will not answer reporters’ questions about her ex-boyfriend — but like basically every other starlet who has ever wanted to sell something, she will certainly use her former relationship to get attention. So cue up the first 30-ish seconds of Gomez’s new single, “Love Will Remember,” which features a voice mail from someone who sounds remarkably like young Biebz. We remain skeptical that it’s actually Justin Bieber, primarily because it is hard to believe that anyone under the age of 21 actually leaves voice mails in this day and age. (Also, wouldn’t he have to give permission for this sort of thing? Would he give permission for this sort of thing?) But it is sweet, in a cringe-y, puppy-love sort of way.
