Just trying to clarify! On Wednesday, July 29, Justin Bieber revealed the title and meaning behind his upcoming single during a visit to On Air With Ryan Seacrest

The pop music bad boy, 21, noted that his new single, “What Do You Mean,” would be released on Aug. 28, ahead of his first album in three years. 

When pressed by Seacrest to explain the song’s meaning, Selena Gomez’s ex replied, “Girls are often just flip floppy. They say something and then they mean something else. I mean, I don’t really know. That’s why I’m asking, ‘What do you mean?’”

In addition to explaining his thoughts about the opposite sex, the Biebs also admitted he struggled with his own insecurities. 

“I get in my head a lot, and I get kinda depressed because I want it to work so badly,” he told Seacrest. “I want people to love it. I want to inspire people. Sometimes I feel, ‘Is it good enough? Is this the direction I want to go?’”

As for the Grammy nominee’s upcoming album, Bieber describes it as “really uplifting, clear, pop-y but cool,” noting, “I’m very excited. It’s stressful, but I’m ready.”
