Watch: Demi Lovato Reveals She and Selena Gomez “Grew Apart”

Demi Lovato has had a big week. Her much anticipated album Demi was released today (although it’s been streamingfor a week), and she just opened up to MTV about her new music, X Factor and her old friend Selena Gomez.

Demi explained that the Disney duo, who initially met back in the day on Barney and Friends, went through a rough patch in their famous friendship. “We’ve been through a lot together…we’ve had periods of times where we grew apart and just didn’t really talk,” Demi said.

But fear not, Selemi fans! Demi told MTV that the longtime buddies are doing fine now because they “realized that life is so short and you have people and when you have people in your life that love you so much, then you should just always be around them.” Preach. She also expressed interest in wanting to be around to watch Selena become a big sister.

As for how she feels about Selena’s music? “I love her single ‘Come and Get It,’ Demi remarked. “When it comes on the radio I like turn it up and tell everyone to shut up unless they’re singing it.” We’ll take it she’s a fan.
