Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez used to be besties back in the day, but they’ve had a rocky relationship over the years. Fans have been wondering if they’re even friends anymore, but Demi’s tweet today, supporting her former Barney co-star, was definitely a sign that they’re still friendly.
Demi tweeted: “.@selenagomez Loving your new song Fetish, we’ve come a long way since our Barney days.”
It’s nice to see that they have each others’ backs after all these years, especially since they both have new music out (Selena’s “Fetish” and Demi’s “Sorry Not Sorry.”).
But not everyone was on board, as fans reacted on Twitter with responses such as: “Demi praising Selena’s new song, seems like a PR stunt” and “ya know i’m kinda happy they’re supportive of each other but demi has been so messy and shady towards selena sooo.”
One person noted that maybe maturity is part of the mix, tweeting: “I genuinely hope Selena and Demi have moved on from whatever problems they had. hope this isn’t one just trying to promote the other again.”
Another person, however, is very much a fan of both women, writing: “i adore demi lovato and selena gomez. if ya’ll don’t like it then unf me. no one says YOU have to adore them.”
Others were awaiting Selena’s response, with one fan tweeting: “But if Selena doesn’t tweet Demi back I’m lowkey gonna be hurt.”
