Justin Bieber plays the part of bitter ex-boyfriend with extraordinary ease, going so far as to consistently shade the rumored new romantic partner of his long-ago ex-girlfriend, Selena Gomez, in the most overt ways possible.

A video of Bieber and his pal Alfredo Flores popped up online recently, showing the two in a car talking about their current favorite songs. The "Sorry" singer answers that his "favorite song at the moment" is "Starboy," by The Weeknd -- Gomez's rumored new boyfriend.

There's a pause shortly after Bieber admits his answer, but it doesn't last long before the Purpose singer lets out a forced cackle thats permeates the darkness and lasts for an inordinate amount of time.

It's not the first time he's vaguely addressed the dating rumors, either. When asked by a TMZ reporter outside a West Hollywood restaurant last month (January 20) to name his favorite Weeknd song, Bieber replied, “Hell nah! That sh—t’s wack!”

Gomez and The Weeknd have yet to confirm their relationship, but they were first spotted kissing outside Santa Monica restaurant Giorgio Baldi earlier last month. They were then seen hanging out together in Florence, Italy -- a romantic destination tailor made for couples, if ever there were one.
