Justin Bieber has opened up about Selena Gomez's Hands to Myself music video. In the clip, the former Disney star is seen getting intimate with model Christopher Mason.

The Baby hitmaker appeared on The Bert Show and talked about his former girlfriend and her latest video. He said (according to the People): "What is she trying to do to my heart right now? I'm just kidding. She loves me. I love her, too, always. Who's this guy? He's a joke! This guy's a chump. Nah, I guess he's pretty handsome actually — I can't even lie."

"I just want her to be happy," Bieber added. "I love [Selena]. We're friends still. We needed time to grow for ourselves and we were like, 'Maybe we'll come back together in the future,' and then it ended up being so long and we just grew apart and we're not the same people anymore."

Meanwhile, in an interview with Elle, Gomez talked about her high-profile relationship with the Sorry singer. She said: "I'll forever support him and love him in a way that.... We grew up together. I think people want it to be different. We're too young for that. Nobody was married. There was no.... I respect him. And I think he respects me, in a healthy manner."

Gomez had previously revealed that she would go on a date with former One Direction star Zayn Malik. The Come And Get It singer said she would be happy to go with the 22-year-old singer if he were to ask her out.

"If he had asked me out on a date, I would be seen with him. Just kidding, but not kidding," she told InStyle UK.
