A Guide To The Selena Gomez And Demi Lovato Feud: What (Or Who) Drove These Disney Princesses Apart?

[Update: This article is old, here's more recent news on Demi Lovato, here's more recent news on Selena Gomez, and here's more on celeb feuds!]

Remember that best friend you had since you were five, who turned into your worst enemy once you guys hit high school and found out you liked the same guy? It’s a story as old as time, or at least the plot of tons of teen movies, and the most recent real-life examples may be none other than Disney princesses Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato.

For those who don’t follow tween culture obsessively, the two met while working on Barney (Barney!) and quickly became the Paris and Nicole (or LC and Heidi, or Lindsay Lohan and whomever) of the purity-ring scene. They dated the Jonas Brothers, had flame wars with Miley Cyrus‘ crew, and even made a Disney TV movie together last June (Princess Protection Program).

But then something weird started happening. The love between Selena and Demi faded fast, with Demi bashing Selena publicly to the media (most recently to Girls’ Life magazine, saying: “We’re both busy, and I wish the best for her. True friends don’t let their friends or family be mean to you. If you can’t trust somebody, you can’t be friends with them.”)

Oh, snap! So what the heck happened?

      Honestly, teen drama sucks when it involves yourself but is actually amusing when it’s someone else. At the end of the day? Best Friend is 10 letters. So is Lying Bitch.

    • Miley/Taylor Fan

      After the initial Demi/Selena fallout, Demi started to hang out with Miley and Selena with Taylor Swift, which is how it is now in 2013. What is lost in this is Miley and Taylor use to be BFF in 2008/2009. Demi hates Taylor because Taylor stole Selena away from her and Selena hates Miley for Nick Jonas and the Youtube mocking. Demi and Selena poisoned Miley and Taylor’s friendship, as Demi was badmouthing Taylor to Miley and Selena badmouthing Miley to Taylor. It is not a coincidence that as Selena’s friendship with Taylor strengthened that Miley’s friendship with Taylor deteriorated fast in 2010 and 2011. By 2012, Taylor and Miley are completely estranged. Pretty sad.
