They’re cool for the summer! And hopefully, for every season thereafter. Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez reunited for a hilarious selfie on Sept. 10, making it their first photo together since 2014. They’ve had a rocky friendship, but things seem to be looking up for the darling duo.
Demi Lovato, 23, and Selena Gomez, also 23, have reunited! The former BFFs, who’ve had a rocky relationship over the last few years, got together for a selfie on Thursday, Sept. 10 — the first picture of them together since 2014.
“Look at how #coolforthesummer we are,” Demi captioned the Instagram pic seen above. “Friends for years, #sameoldlove.” So cute!
Demi and Selena practically grew up together. They first starred on Barney together, and then took roles in separate shows on the Disney channel. They remained close during their younger years until they had an unfortunate falling out in 2010. But in January 2014, they rekindled their friendship.
“I’ve known her since we were 7, and we did fall apart for a while,” Selena told E! News of Demi in January 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.”
Unfortunately, Demi wasn’t in Selena’s life for very long after that. After taking a picture together at the unite4:good gala and Variety‘s unite4:humanity event in February 2014, things took a turn for the worse. In the summer of 2014, Demi stopped following Selena on her social media pages and when she appeared on WWHL, she said, “I think it’s just one of those things where people change and people grow apart.”
However, it now seems like they’re patching things up again. Demi started following Selena again in August, and the “Good For You” singer then wished Demi a happy birthday on Aug. 20. And now, they’ve posed for a silly selfie together. We hope this is a sign of good things to come!
