It's Friday and Charlie Puth dropped a new song today, which means all is right in the world. It's a freaking jam with upbeat tones, a beat drop that will make you want to get out on the dance floor, and vocals that sound perfect and polished. The track is called "Attention."
Even though it might be a song that everyone is sure to rock out to, we can't help but wonder who the lyrics were inspired by.
The first verse goes, "You've been runnin' round, runnin' round, runnin' round throwin' that dirt all on my name/'Cause you knew that I, knew that I, knew that I'd call you up/You've been going round, going round, going round every party in LA/'Cause you knew that I, knew that I, knew that I'd be at one."
The song continued, "You just want attention/You don't want my heart/Maybe you just hate the thought of me with someone new/Yeah, you just want attention/I knew from the start/You're just making sure I'm never gettin' over you."
Hmm…could this song possibly be about Bella Thorne?!
Okay, so that might be a far stretch, but there's lots of evidence to prove that this could very well be about the Famous In Love actress, who Charlie may or may not have had a fling with at the end of 2016 and beginning of 2017.
Charlie and Bella were caught kissing in Miami just days before they walked the Jingle Ball red carpet together. The photos were shocking because everyone thought that Bella was still dating Tyler Posey and then assumed that she had been caught cheating. Fans went wild and totally bashed her on social media sending her death threats.
But things didn't stop there. Charlie put out a public apology to Tyler on Twitter, which made Bella look even worse. Since then, she has opened up about the whole situation multiple times. Is this song his way of telling his side of the story? Is he saying that all she wants is attention? Yikes!
Not to mention, another one of Bella's exes, Gregg Sulkin, once tweeted a cryptic tweet when Bella was making headlines everyone believed he was targeting her when he wrote it. He tweeted, "Children want attention."
Children want attention.

Could this all be a coincidence or are Gregg and Charlie on the same page? Of course, it's hard to tell. But, we wouldn't be shocked if some of Charlie's song came from an experience he once had…
