Selena Gomez covers 'Cry Me A River'
If you've lost track of whether Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber are "on" or "off," Gomez's recent performance at a UNICEF benefit concert Saturday might say it all.
The 20-year-old actress/singer took a page from Bieber's playbook and performed a cover of Justin Timberlake's "Cry Me A River." Bieber performed the song in November, right at the height of the rumors that the pop star pair had broken up.
"This song definitely speaks to me," Gomez said before she launched into the song, which describes a hurt lover telling an ex to "cry a river" over their dissolved relationship. According to Us Weekly, Gomez added ahead of her rendition that she's "been through a lot the past few months. It's been weird and sad and cool."
But if Gomez did have a breakup on her mind, she didn't let it show on the red carpet. Before she performed, Gomez spoke with reporters on the risks she's taking both on-screen, with her new movie "Spring Breakers," and off-screen.
"I'm a little bit more mouthy," she told Us Weekly. "I'm a little bit older. I've got a little more sass. ... Everything happens for a reason, so enjoy every moment."
For a reminder, here's Bieber's performance. Who do you think had the better cover?

I thought she was very pretty. I wonder why she broke up with Justin? I don't think that she was a good enough singer to be on the cover of "cry me a river."
I agree that she should have not been in cry me a river.Also I wonder why she broke up with justin beiber?Also i think she is very attractive.
I think she looks very pretty. I wonder why she ended her relationship with Justin Bieber? But honestly, I don't like how she sings.

Hey! I see that!
Justin is a strong guy...no wimp there that's for sure.
Justin is a stable young boy ...he did the right thing. Selena only complains and whines 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
It can wear a fella down after awhile.
Selena is also attention crazy which plays and huge role in ruining the relationship...then again
there are men who tolerate it.....
selena has emotional problems she needs to work on....she could have emotional problems in her future.
I don't where you guys are getting your information from but it sure isn't from a reliable source. It's Justin who's going down the tube. Get your facts right!
as an example.
Justin did have the guts too dump her ass.
You either can't read or hear well. It was Selena who dumped him.
yes your right
unfortunately at the wrong times....he has to work that out...
i will say she is a customer drawer and sooooooo may people buy her albums....BAHA
we know justin can't stand up to her...so thats the way it goes in hollywood.
both screwed up........ hack is giving us a lecture about people and what they should be doing with their lives
one can't be enemys forever.... then again some of these bloggers seem use too having people hate them and don't care ... good for them.
Selena followed up her boy trouble cover songs with Britney Spears' "...Baby One More Time." This is a song about Britney screwing up with JT and wanted him to show her a sign that their love is still true. Why sing this song????
gotta do something today!
cause they were fun back in the old brooklyn daze.
The bee gees?! Lol
You can tell by the way i use my walk that I'm a woman's man with no time talk lol
She would sing lots better if she weren't wearing clothes.
Possibly true. But then everyone in the audience would be vomiting all over the place.
i love that dead silence when i 've made someone look stupid on a computer
Y yous being quiet?
can't people just say the actual words...why do i have to refer that stupid urban dictionary...ridiculous
you didn't bring me my pickle..i love pickles.
