According to Selena Gomez, she has “completely closed” the #Jelena chapter of her life. Yep, during a recent interview with Rolling Stone, the artist announced that she was done singing about her ex Justin Bieber, after writing numerous songs about their rocky relationship.

As fans know, the singer dropped her new album, Rare, in January 2020, and it contained a lot of songs about the “Yummy” artist. It was no secret that her two lead singles off of the LP — “Lose You to Love Me,” and “Look At Her Now” — were inspired by their romance. But now, don’t expect any more songs about the situation.

“It was my idea to release ‘Lose You to Love Me’ and ‘Look at Her Now’ [back-to-back],” Gomez explained in the new interview. “[My label was] kind of nervous about it, because they didn’t want to take away from either song. I knew from the get-go that ‘Lose You to Love Me’ was going to be the bigger song, because I just felt it in my heart. I wanted people to take away that this was a journey and that it was completely closed. I don’t want people to see me as just sad and hurt. I didn’t want that anymore. I wanted people to know that I experienced something real, and that part of me is over.”

She continued, “[While making Rare, I] focused on creating more songs that were lyrically about transformation and vulnerability and heartbreak. It felt like [the material] was really, really strong, and I was very happy about it. I think that becoming more involved than I ever have been [in the making of the album] helped me gain confidence and empowered me completely. I took control over what I was going to say, what I was going to do.”

But wait, what exactly went down between Gomez and Bieber, you ask? When did they first start dating and how long were they together? It turns out, their love story had a lot of ups and downs. They broke up and got back together so many times over the years, and when they finally ended things once and for all, it was not pretty. In case you forgot, we decided to recap the entire romance from start to finish for you. Here’s their complete relationship timeline…

The Two Stars First Met Back In 2009

That’s right, this relationship started more than a decade ago. The two stars first met in 2009, after Bieber’s manager reached out to Gomez and set them up. But it wasn’t until one year later, when they were spotted cuddling up at an iHop, that rumors started to swirl that they were dating. At the time, however, the songstress quickly shut down the speculation, telling MTV, “Who doesn’t like pancakes? We were both performing in the same place so we went and had pancakes together. That’s all it is. All innocent. I love Justin. When he first started to come over from Canada his manager contacted me and he just said that he would like to meet me and he was just such a good kid… I feel like a big sister now, ’cause I want to protect him.”
