(USA TODAY) -- Justin Bieber has just released a new acoustic song, Nothing Like Us.

Some of the lyrics: "I gave you everything, babe
Well, everything I had to give
Girl, why would you push me away, yeah ..."

Billboard is debuting the new tune (although lyrics had leaked a few days ago) and asks Bieber about it not being an angry song but one filled with emotion - about his breakup with Selena Gomez.

"Because at the end of the day, there's nothing like us, you know?" says the pop star. "That's just it. It is what it is. People are going to relate to that."

So, he's pretty heartbroken?

"I'm not in the happiest place that I've ever been," admits Bieber. "I'm trying to get through what I'm going through. Like I said, I have my really close friends to cheer me up and keep me going."

He's also asked about that fact that both he and Selena separately recently covered Cry Me a River, which prompted more speculation about what happened to the relationship.

"There's so many rumors. People say I call Selena every day and she won't pick up the phone or I'm chasing her down, and these are all fake stories," he says.

And, don't look for him at the upcoming Grammys. "I will not be there," he says. But he's rooting for "Chris Brown. I'm a fan. His music is really good. That's what they should focus on: the music."
