Looks like Justin Bieber needs somebody else to love -- a report says he and girlfriend Selena Gomez have split. Rumors have plagued the young pair for months, suggesting a growing distance as both of their demanding careers kept them apart. That reportedly checks out.

"At the end of the day, it comes down to a young man in a room writing a song.

The songs matter, certainly, and Bieber's written or sung plenty of great ones, including several in his so-called Music Mondays series, in which he's releasing a new tune every week through next month.
