Over the years Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato‘s friendship has had its ups and downs. Fans loved seeing “Delena” together, but they weren’t always close. In 2014 Lovato unfollowed Gomez on Twitter and hinted that they’d grown apart on Watch What Happens Live. It seems they’re back on track, though: The two were photographed hugging it out on the red carpet last night, and we’re shook.
Gomez and Lovato attended the InStyle Awards in Los Angeles, where Gomez introduced Makeup Artist of the Year Award winner Hung Vanngo and Lovato accepted the Advocate Award. According to InStyle, before heading into the dinner, the two stopped each other to have a private moment to catch up and chat. Oh, and share a hug on the red carpet, pictured below:
It’s been years since we’ve seen them together on a red carpet—since 2011 MTV VMAs, to be exact:
These Barney & Friends turned Disney channel stars turned music moguls have a lot to be proud of, and they haven’t been shy to congratulate each other lately. Recently, Gomez left a string of comments on Lovato’s Instagram to commend her new YouTube documentary, Simply Complicated. “Demi. This was beautiful,” Gomez wrote on her friend’s page. “I’m so happy for you. You always continue to [be] bold and real. I wish more people were like you. Love you.”
This lovefest goes both ways, most recently in July, when Lovato praised Gomez’s song “Fetish” on Twitter. “.@selenagomez Loving your new song ‘Fetish,’ we’ve come a long way since our Barney days,” she wrote. Gomez then Tweeted back, “Yes we have – just listening to ‘Sorry Not Sorry!’ You slay as always. So happy for you!” How cute are they?
But as much as we love the pair’s social media interactions, seeing them hug IRL is way, way better.
