Selena Gomez sang a cover of Justin Timberlake's breakup song "Cry Me A River" at a recent concert and told the crowd that the song "definitely speaks to me," months after her reported split from fellow pop star Justin Bieber.
The private gig was a charity event benefiting UNICEF and took place at the Best Buy Theater in New York City on Saturday, January 19. Us Weekly magazine quoted Gomez, 20, as saying, "I've been through a lot the past few months. It's been weird and sad and cool. This song definitely speaks to me," before singing Timberlake's 2002 ballad, while two musicians accompanied her on acoustic guitars. (Watch a fan-made video)
The song was a big hit for Timberlake, who recently made a music comeback after a some 10-year absence, and is said to have been inspired by his own breakup from Britney Spears.
Gomez and Bieber began dating about two years ago and reportedly split in November. The two have not commented about the matter publicly.
Gomez offered one message following her performance on Saturday, Tweeting: "Thank You to all who came out to support @unicefusa last night, could not have been a bigger success. I love you all. See you soon NY."
Meanwhile, Bieber went through some drama of his own over the weekend, although it had nothing to do with Gomez -- the singer posted a photo of himself showing his backside on his Instagram page on Saturday. The picture, which got more than 86,000 "likes," according to Access Hollywood, was later removed.
