Selena Gomez Calls Demi Lovato "One of My Inspirations"

A brief fallout didn’t change Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato’s friendship too much! The 21-year-olds have known each other since they were kids starring on Barney, and have recently reconnected.

“Demi’s very, very strong,” Selena told Seventeen. “She’s the only person that I would tell the deepest, darkest secrets to. The only person.”

After the “Made in the USA” singer entered rehab in 2010, the girls lost touch for a while, something her BFF seems to regret looking back. “I’ve known her since we were seven, and we did fall apart for a while,” she admitted. “She was going through things and I was so young and it was confusing. I processed it by saying, ‘Okay, I don’t understand what she’s going through, so I’m just going to do this.’ I don’t think it was far, and I’m so happy I have her back in my life now.”

Although she wasn’t with Demi much during that dark period, Selena made sure to praise her pal for making it through. “I feel like we’re all given what we can handle, and clearly someone thought she could handle so much — and she could, and she did,” the “Slow Down” singer gushed. “And she’s incredible for that. I couldn’t imagine going through some of the things that she went through. And the fact that she is who she is today is insane — she’s one of my inspirations.”

The interview wasn’t all compliments, though! Selena took a dig at her ex-boyfriend, Justin Bieber, too. “I haven’t found someone yet who could understand my lifestyle, support it, love me through it and not be threatened by it,” she said. “It’s hard. I think I scare some guys.”
