Ariana Grande was so sweet to tell the world that there was more to Selena Gomez than being Justin Bieber’s ex, and now HollywoodLife.com can EXCLUSIVELY reveal how Sel reacted to Ari’s sweet words.
Selena Gomez, 23, has a newfound friend in the sweet Ariana Grande, 22. After the “Dangerous Woman” singer stood up for her, declaring that there was so much more to her than being 22-year-old Justin Bieber‘s ex, Selena was so flattered.
“Selena was very flattered with what Ariana had to say,” a source close to the singer tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. Of course she was flattered, Ariana showed real girl power by having Selena’s back! “Even though they aren’t super close, she appreciates her support.” So sweet.

Selena truly feels that what Ariana said was really important, but not just in her case. “Selena thinks the point Ariana was trying to make applies to women every where,” our source also shared. “She thought her interview was classy and that Ariana herself is a class act.”
Is there a new girl-mance on the horizon here? Is girl-mance even a thing? Maybe Selena and Ariana can form their very own squad… that is, of course, if queen squad leader Taylor Swift doesn’t mind!
Ariana’s support could not have come at a better time, either. Selena is currently at the center of a massive scandal, in which many were left speculating whether or not she hooked up with Katy Perry‘s boyfriend, Orlando Bloom, after getting hands-y in a Las Vegas nightclub recently.
Even though things have cooled down a bit since Katy and Orlando showed a united, non-scandalous front together at the Cannes Film Festival, there is still a lot of side-eyeing going on when it comes to his hang out session with Selena. After all, there was that super sketchy video of the two leaving the nightclub together… eek!
