New Song: Selena Gomez, ‘Sad Serenade’

Selena Gomez mourns her relationships in "Sad Serenade."

Selena Gomez mourns past relationships in “Sad Serenade.”

We’re generally used to seeing Selena Gomez looking all, “laughing at the airport with my stepdad,” “making ‘goo-goo’ faces at my baby sister,” and “taking reunion selfies with my former ‘Wizards Of Waverly Place’ costars.” But that doesn’t mean that the girl can’t occasionally smudge her mascara/loosen her false lashes with a good puffy-eyed cry over a failed relationship! And although it’s set to hazy, synth-laden, bombastic beat, Selena’s new jam, “Sad Serenade,” is definitely less cheerful than what we’ve come to expect from the “Come & Get It” singer.

Anyway, we know you’re probably thinking: “Sad Serenade,” which didn’t quite make it on to Selena’s upcoming Stars Dance album (speaking of sad!!), is an ode to Sel’s maybe-on-maybe-off relationship with Justin Bieber. And yes, judging by the lyrics, we have to agree that it probably is about Sel’s roller-coaster romance with the milli-pack “Heartbreaker.” Selena seductively coos, “I won’t regret what I won’t forget/ Memories and your number/ Are all I have left…/ A sad, sad serenade/ Sad serenade/ We almost got it right.”

“Sad Serenade” is tough on the emotions, but honestly, if “almost getting it right” consists of taking fierce “Jenny From The Block”-themed selfies with your maybe ex, then, like, isn’t “almost” enough??
