Justin Bieber’s latest single, “What Do You Mean?”, is not about anyone whose name may or may not rhyme with “Melena.”

That’s what he told Ellen DeGeneres, anyway, when he stopped by for Tuesday’s Ellen DeGeneres Show. “I wrote the song for women in general,” he said, dodging the host’s attempt to get him to talk about his ex, Selena Gomez. “I just never know what women are thinking ’cause they say one thing and they meant another thing and then they’re like do this and don’t do this and then I’m like … what do you mean?”

And there you have it — easy enough. Another fun fact about the song is that when you’re hearing what you think might be a synthesizer, it’s actually Bieber’s voice. “That’s actually my vocal, they just chopped it up. … They pitched it up and they messed with it and stuff.”

In the clip ahead, Bieber also talks about that infamous butt Instagram and whether he’s single.
