Justin Bieber’s new album, Believe, debuted today, and not without some drama. One track on the record is called “Maria,” and is blatently about the baby mama drama Bieber faced with Mariah Yeater, who accused Bieber of being the father to her child.
Bieber did an interview with Ryan Seacrest. Ryan asked if the song was about Mariah and Justin said, “Yes, it is about that because I couldn’t really talk about it when it was happening. Every interview I was like, ‘I can’t really talk about it.’ So, to be able to actually talk about it on the album is really awesome.”
When asked how he felt about bringing the drama up again, Justin said, “People didn’t forget about it, it was still headline news. So, to be able to talk about it and really say my side of the story and really just express myself, I feel like that was the best way to do it.”
The song opens with different snipits of news headlines surrounding the case. Some of the lyrics are as follows, “She was dragging my name through the dirt. She was dying for my affection, but she can make this up, didn’t give it to her… She ain’t my baby, she ain’t my girl, ’cause you’re talkin’ it and you need to quit. But it never ends, oh no she’s not mine, that ain’t my baby, that ain’t my girl.”
