I'm not a Justin Bieber fan. Never was. But I have to admit this song is really good. The first I heard it I didn't realize it was Bieber's. But I think the message it conveys is really awesome. And the simple melody is really nice. We've all been there. We love some one that is just using us and keeps making us fade away, feel small and vulnerable. This song shares the message that you should not be with someone like that and that you are way better off alone!
I read somewhere online, that he wrote this song when he was you really down, when Selena Gomes left him and broke his heart. And that the original title is Fuck Yourself. Which makes this song even more awesome! And now, that he is over her, we changed to name -- and the lyrics -- to Love Yourself -- because is like giving the other cheek. If this is true, my opinion of Justin Bieber changed completely.. A few years ago, everybody was making fun of him online. Having to deal with that, and a bad break up... it had to be really rough on him. To able to pick him self up when everything was just pushing him down shows an incredible will power and strength! The video though, is not that impressive.
" Cause if you like the way you look that much
Oh baby you should go and love yourself
And if you think that I am still holding on to something
You should go and love yourself "
