Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez Reunite!
Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez are still one and the same.
The childhood pals reunited during the third annual InStyle Awards at The Getty Center in L.A. Monday.
The ex besties, who met as child stars on Barney & Friends and later co-starred in the Disney Channel Original Movie Princess Protection Program, gave fans all the feels after the pairs friendship feel apart a few years ago, crushing all our friendship goals dreams.
The reunion was especially exciting for fans on social media, as they have followed their ups and downs for years. Despite their rocky history, Lovato reached out to Gomez via Twitter in July, writing, "Loving your new song Fetish. We've come a long way since our Barney days." It was Gomez's turn to publicly praise her pal last week after the release of Demi Lovato: Simply Complicated, in which Lovato opened up about her drug abuse. Gomez commented on one of Lovato's Instagram posts promoting the documentary, saying, "This was beautiful. I'm so happy for you. You always continue to [be] bold and real. I wish more people were like you. Love you."
"I've known her since we were 7, and we did fall apart for a while," Gomez told Seventeen in 2014. "She was going through things and I was so young and it was confusing. I processed it saying, 'OK, I don't understand what she's going through, so I'm just going to do this.' I don't think it was fair, and I'm so happy that I have her back in my life now." A few months later, however, they unfollowed each other on social media. As Lovato later nonchalantly said on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, "People change and people grow apart." But that was then, and this is now—and they're both following each other on Instagram again.
Yaaas we are so happy for this reunion!
