Selena Gomez shares a live rendition of her song Lose You To Love Me – and explains why she turned comments off on the post

Selena Gomez threw it back as she took to social media on Monday to share a live rendition of her 2019 song Lose You To Love Me. The 30-year-old singer-songwriter – who recently asked TikTok why she’s single – appeared on the app to share a nearly minute-long performance of the sentimental tune. Dressed in a crew neck gray sweater, the songstress simultaneously played the piano as she sang the song. Interacting with her nearly 60 million followers on the app, she wrote in the caption, ‘This isn’t the greatest, I know, so I hope no one minds me turning off the comments for my head.’

By ‘my head,’ it seemed the mental health advocate was referring to her mental wellness and protecting herself from mean-spirited trolls.

Self-care: Interacting with her nearly 60 million followers on the app, she wrote in the caption, ‘This isn’t the greatest, I know, so I hope no one minds me turning off the comments for my head’ She added in the note, ‘[These were] the best, most sincere moments with lose you to love me.’ Gomez added over the video clip in small black font, ‘Making of… me getting to know myself.’ In the stripped down, fuss-free snippet, the music artist pulled her dark locks into an imperfect bun. She fumbled around on the keys as she delivered an emotional version of the single, which was inspired by her breakup with longtime on-off ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber.

The song originally came out in October 2019, and the former Disney star sang it in a less than stellar performance at the American Music Awards the following month. A source later shared with Us Weekly that Selena ‘had a panic attack’ ahead of the show. ‘Selena did have a panic attack before her performance, but she ultimately decided to push through and perform anyway,’ the insider shared at the time.

‘She had rehearsed and was excited to get back on stage, but she got nervous right before because it’s been a while.’

Heartfelt: The 30-year-old singer-songwriter appeared on the app to share a nearly minute-long performance of the sentimental tune In her 2022 AppleTV+ documentary My Mind & Me, Selena gave fans insight on the performance and the song. In the doc, the star said she felt the ‘worst breakup ever’ had to happen so that she could learn to ‘choose herself and choose life again.’ She added: ‘Everything was so public. I felt haunted by a past relationship that no one wanted to let go of. Then I just moved past it, and I wasn’t afraid anymore.’

The multihyphenate revealed, ‘I feel like I had to go through the worst possible heartbreak ever and then just forgetting everything at the drop of the hand, it was really confusing. ‘But I just think that needed to happen and ultimately it was the best thing that ever happened to me.’ Adding that she had written the song in just 45 minutes, she continued: ‘It’s about more than a lost love. It’s me learning to choose myself, to choose life, but also hoping that people can find grace and peace in that too.’

She declared that ‘the song is about knowing that you completely lost every part of who you are just to rediscover yourself again.’ Selena and Justin were teenage sweethearts and were last pictured together in early 2018, months before he had a courthouse wedding to model Hailey Baldwin.

Right decision: Selena co-wrote the song about her split from ex Justin Bieber and she revealed in her 2022 AppleTV+ documentary My Mind & Me that their 2018 breakup was the ‘best thing that ever happened’ to her; the exes pictured in 2011

Onward: Justin went on to wed supermodel Hailey Bieber at a courthouse in September 2018; they later enjoyed a traditional wedding with family and friends The month after the nuptials, Selena reportedly suffered a breakdown connected to her lupus and entered treatment for her mental health.

Fans suspected Lose You To Love Me had been written about the former romance before the Only Murders In The Building star seemingly confirmed it ‘I wrote this song over a year ago. It’s obviously a very emotional song for me,’ the Hollywood fixture shared with E! News in 2019.

‘It’s interesting to see how far I’ve come from that point to now. Me sharing my story is exactly what I’ve always done. I can’t be unauthentic. I can’t pretend that I’m not going through something when it’s obvious that I had been,’ she explained.
