Entitled “My AMA Diary,” the five-minute video is something she wanted to do for her fans, so they would know what was in her heart when she sang the song.
The performance was the first time she sang “The Heart Wants What it Wants,” live and it was so moving pals like Taylor Swift were left in tears.
“I knew that I wanted it to be all of me, because somebody asked me a while ago, ‘What’s the one thing you wish people knew about you?’ And I said I wanted it to be my heart,” she explains.
Indeed, her on-again, off-again relationship has baffled fans and friends over the way she keeps running back to him despite his loutish behavior and often humiliates her by flirting with other women.
Swift, who has openly expressed displeasure with Bieber, has tried to get her to break off the relationship once and for all.
Going into the show, Gomez knew it would be one of her most difficult. “This performance is a little bit frightening,” she says.
The video also has its lighter moments. It shows Gomez getting ready for the show and appearing on the red carpet. “Everybody is there and all glamorous, so fun… but then, I gotta be all emotional,” she says. “Feels like a lump in my throat.”
To get in the right frame of mind, she listens to one of her favorite “worship songs,” called Oceans.”
“I can’t wait. I think this means a lot to me and when I’m done it will be like a huge weight has lifted off of me,” she says. So… I’m excited.
