Selena Gomez Releases New Single 'Who Says?' (LISTEN)

There is a palpable wave of optimism rising through the ranks of teenage pop stars. Selena Gomez's new single, "Who Says," is an an ode to self-worth. It exudes bubblegum confidence in the manner of her man (boy) Bieber's tune "Never Say Never."

The song premiered Tuesday during On Air With Ryan Seacrest. Gomez, who has caught a ton of flack from young beliebers for her relationship with the teen crush of the moment, says the song is a message to all the haters out there.

Much of the song seems a bit superfluous, "I'm sure you've got some things you'd like to change about yourself, but when it comes to me, I wouldn't wanna be anybody else." And, like many feel good anthems, this one is a little bit tepid. That said, its a cute song and you can check it out below:
