Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez are still friends, despite what you may have read, regardless of its accuracy.
Let’s rewind to June of 2013 when I spoke with Lovato following her “Good Morning America” performance in Central Park. At the time, Gomez was experiencing a career-high in radio airplay with the single, “Come And Get It.”
“I’m really, really excited for (Gomez),” Lovato told me. “And I’m excited for all of the people I’ve grown up with… Selena especially because I’ve known her since I was seven years old.”
A lot can change in two years: chart positions, relationship statuses, hair colors… and much did. So it makes sense that in a recently released interview with Complex, Lovato had changed her tone on the relationship she shares with Gomez.
“But, you know, when you’re young and you get older, you change and people change,” she said after clarifying that the distance that grew between the two former Disney stars had nothing to do anymore with Justin Bieber. “You have things in common, and then all of a sudden, you don’t. It’s just a part of life.”
But it didn’t make sense, at least not to fans of Lovato and Gomez, who saw the two pose for a selfie on Instagram just a few weeks ago.
Were they no longer friends after that selfie? Was Demi throwing shade at Selena? Was the “Cool For The Summer” singer misquoted?
According to a tweet posted on Wednesday by Lovato, none of the above.
Interviews are done months and months before the issue is published. I lot can change between then and now. Don't read into the bullshit

“Interviews are done months and months before the issue is published. I lot (sic) can change between then and now,” she wrote. “Don’t read into the bullsh–.”
Or rather, read it knowing that at first it was accurate but at the present moment it may no longer be.
