It looks like those baby-daddy allegations against Justin Bieber have given birth to a song.

While calling in to Ryan Seacrest's radio show this morning to promote his new album, Believe, the pop sensation revealed that one of the CD's tracks, "Maria," was actually inspired by Mariah Yeater, the 20-year-old woman who claimed Bieber had fathered her baby boy.

"Yes, it is about that because I couldn't really talk about it when it was happening," Bieber told Seacrest. "Every interview I was like, 'I can't really talk about it.' So, to be able to actually talk about it on the album is really awesome."

When asked by Seacrest if he thought the song might put the spotlight back on Yeater, Bieber acknowledged that, yes, it was a concern, but that he ultimately decided that recording it was a positive thing.

"People didn't forget about it, it was still headline news," Bieber pointed out. "So, to be able to talk about it and really say my side of the story and really just express myself, I feel like that was the best way to do it."

Bieber's Believe was released today.
