Did The Weeknd Just Release New Songs About Exes Selena Gomez and Bella Hadid?
It seems The Weeknd has learned a thing or two from his pal Taylor Swift -- including using breakups as song-writing material.

The Canadian hit-maker unveiled his new, six-song EP titled My Dear Melancholy on Thursday night, and shortly after Twitter lit up with speculation that some of his lyrics referenced his famous ex-girlfriends Selena Gomez and Bella Hadid.

In "Call Out My Name" The Weeknd sings, "I said I didn't feel nothing baby, but I lied / I almost cut a piece of myself for your life," leading fans to speculate that he’s referring to Gomez's recent kidney transplant and suggesting he was willing to be her donor. The song continues, "Guess I was just another pit stop / Til' you made up your mind / You just wasted my time," a possible illusion to Gomez’s reconciliation with Justin Bieber.
 
 
 

Fans are also speculating that the song “Wasted Time” references Hadid, who used to participate in horse riding competitions. "You were equestrian, so ride it like a champion," he sings. "Wasted time I spent with someone else / she wasn’t even half of you" -- a possible reference to dating Gomez following his relationship with Hadid in 2016.
