Here's Why Miley Cyrus & Demi Lovato Reconnected Again As Friends

Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato did an Instagram Live together and spoke about their friendship through the years – which has been through up and downs – and knowing that they’re always there for each other despite “petty drama.”

It started when Miley talked about her infamous 2013 VMAs performance.

“I basically went through two or three years where I wouldn’t wear shorts. I stopped wearing skirts on stage, all this s–t because after the VMAs and I had on my cute little nude bodysuit, everyone started comparing me to a turkey and putting a turkey in my outfit,” she said. “I was just so skinny and so pasty and they kept putting me next to this turkey, and I was feeling so bad on myself that I did not wear a bikini for, like, two years and no one thought that that would ever make me feel some type of way,” Miley said.

“I think what was so hard about it was my brand has always been about being so unapologetically myself and being confident, and the worse thing that I would feel like I would be to my fans is lying or a fraud,” she continued.

Demi then chimed in, saying, “First of all, I’m so sad that you went through that, and I had no idea,” she said. “I wish I could’ve been there, but I didn’t know and I feel like we’ve gone through times where we’re closer and then distant—and that’s fine, that’s what friends do. I just wish I could’ve been there for you. But if that ever f–ing happens again, you better call me.”

Miley then opened up about why they reconnected – especially during “times like this” aka the Coronavirus pandemic.

“It’s times like this that it’s a great chance to call and connect with people you may have fallen out of touch or lost contact with through some petty drama,” Miley mused. “It’s a time of crisis that you realize what really matters and it all seems really silly and small.”

Miley added, “Life is moving so fast that it’s usually hard to slow ourselves down and appreciate people in our lives, and you’ve been that person for me for so many years and we’ve been friends for so long. We can not talk forever and then some bullsh*t will go down, and I’ll just know you’re the person I want to reach out to. In dark times, it’s really important to reach towards those who are illuminated. I just think that you’re such a light—even if it took this crisis to get us connected again.”
