Selena Gomez has said she has "much respect and love" for her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber.

The 'Come and Get It' singer was quizzed during an interview on Norway's NRJ radio station about new song 'The Heart Wants What It Wants', which is said to be about Justin.

Selena revealed she wrote the song as a message to other people dealing with break ups and heartbreak... which led to this bit of info about JB.

"I definitely have so much respect and love for him," she said, "and going in the studio is just very therapeutic like any other artist. Every person can write or talk about what they are feeling and however way they can get it out...

"It was my way of having it be a message more to people in general. People everywhere feel this feeling, and they should understand when anybody goes through that."

Selena, 22, and Justin, 2o, have been involved in a high profile on-off relationship for around two years, with rumours frequently pairing them back together or breaking them up.

For now, it seems they are firmly just friends.

That doesn't mean former Wizards of Waverly Place actress Selena is dating anyone new, however, as she told the radio station she's "single" right now.
