Our hearts fluttered with sheer happiness when Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato reunited for an unexpected Instagram selfie a few weeks ago. But leading up to that point, it's clear Delena was on the rocks. At the time that Demi gave her Complex magazine cover interview, she wasn't talking to the "Same Old Love" singer.
During the interview, Demi was asked if she still kept in touch with her childhood friend, to which she simply said, "Nope." She didn't really elaborate, causing us to think, at the time, it was a touchy subject. But when the interviewer speculated that Justin Bieber had something to do with their bestie breakup, Demi cleared the air.
"Not really. Not anymore," she clarified.
A lot has changed since the interview though, as Delena is reportedly back on and possibly even stronger than ever. There's no bad blood between Demi and JB either, as she recently gushed that she's very proud of him.
"He's actually a nice guy. I don't really know him that well, but he seems to have grown up," she said. "He looks like he's maturing. But, you know, when you're young and you get older, you change and people change. You have things in common, and then all of a sudden, you don't. It's just part of life."
YIKES! Was she still talking about Bieber or was the last part of that answer meant to reference her at-the-time nonexistent friendship with Sel? It kind of sounds like the former Disney Channel stars grew apart because they didn't have much to talk about anymore. We wonder what that could mean.
After all, on paper it appears that they have a ton in common. They're both singers, they both came from the Disney Channel. They even have several mutual friends like Joe Jonas, Nick Jonas, and Taylor Swift. So what differences could Demi possibly be talking about?
Regardless, things are different now and the girls are back to being close buds. Thank goodness, too. Delena has always been one of our favorite pairings to ship. <3
