Watch the singer slow down the dance tune.

Justin Bieber‘s new interview for Complex‘s October/November issue is full of clickbait-worthy tidbits (click here to read our round-up) — but the most interesting part of the singer’s chat with the magazine is the heavy discussion of relationships (read: his love for Selena Gomez).

“My identity was in her. Her identity was in me. When stuff would happen, I would lose my freakin’ mind, and she would lose her mind, and we would fight so hard because we were so invested in each other,” Bieber revealed about his on-again/off-again relationship with the “Same Old Love” starlet.

Justin’s as-yet-untitled LP drops on November 13, so don’t be surprised if he divulges even more on his lost love like he did on 2013’s Journals.

On his relationship with Selena Gomez: “Don’t fall in love. No, I’m just kidding. I learned a lot. I moved in with my girlfriend when I was 18. Started my own life with her. It was a marriage kind of thing. Living with a girl, it was just too much at that age. But we were so in love. Nothing else mattered. We were all about each other. But when it’s like that and you get your value from that, people will always disappoint you. Your girl or your dude, they’re always going to disappoint you. Your full identity can’t be in that person. My identity was in her. Her identity was in me. When stuff would happen, I would lose my freakin’ mind, and she would lose her mind, and we would fight so hard because we were so invested in each other. Love is a choice. Love is not a feeling. People have made it seem in movies that it’s this fairy tale. That’s not what love is.”

On comparing future relationships with his past ones: “Yeah. You get scarred from certain things. Even like — I’m kind of seeing this girl, right? I’m shy about doing or saying certain things, and then I say it and it’s not even a problem. And I’ll remember when I couldn’t…. You’re just scarred and you don’t do something because in your last relationship they’d freak out, but [the new person is] just like, ‘What are you talking about?’”
