Justin Bieber covers 'Cry Me a River' after breakup


Hours after it was confirmed that Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez had broken up, Bieber took to the stage at Boston's TD Garden arena on Saturday and performed one of the greatest kiss-off songs in a generation, Justin Timberlake's "Cry Me a River."

Armed with acoustic guitars, Bieber and one of his band members sat down for a passionate rendition of the 2002 classic, which was famously inspired by Timberlake's breakup with Britney Spears.

Gomez and Bieber broke up a week ago, according to E! News. "Because of their crazy schedules, it was getting harder and harder to maintain a relationship," a source revealed. Another source confirmed the breakup with the AP.

Bieber is currently on tour promoting his "Believe" album. His next show is scheduled for Monday at the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Gomez, 21, is filming a "Wizards of Waverly Place" reunion for Disney.

As Beliebers know, the 18-year-old star has a lengthy relationship with the song. A version uploaded to YouTube in 2008 has been seen 20,220,065 times, and Bieber mashed the track with Kanye West's "Heartless" for Billboard a year later.

Sorry Bieber but you are a lame copycat of Timberlake. And will never have the talent. And stop wearing lipstick if you want to be taken seriously.

For one he isn't a crooner you dumb a$s writers. Frank Sinatra was a crooner. Two he probably didn't know what to do with that hot piece of a$s, as someone stated below. So get off of this untalented little girls band wagon, just because his nuts will never drop doesn't mean hes talented. And quit referring to 2002 hits as classics.

They broke up because Selena Gomez finally came to the realization that she is not a lesbian.
