MILEY CYRUS, DEMI LOVATO Prove Unbreakable Friendship In Empowering Instagram Live

They say distance only brings people closer and that was proven true by Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato.
During an Instagram live together, the former Disney stars talked about the kind of friendship they have and the roles they play in each other's life. "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," Miley said. "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," she added referring to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.
Demi felt the same saying, "I feel like you’ve always been such a light and that’s why we connected at 14. We connected then because we just saw something in each other. Maybe it was because of spirituality or maybe it was just our hearts." Miley then joked, "Or maybe we were just gay as fuck" leaving both of them in laughter.
The "I Love Me" songstress also expressed regret over not being there for Miley during the time she was body-shamed. "I’m so sad that you went through that and I had no idea. I wish I could’ve been there, but I didn’t know and I feel like we’ve gone through like 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 fucking happens again, you better call me."
This is the kind of content we need to get us through these trying times. We love you, Demi and Miley!
The Instagram session is part of Miley's Bright Minded project which aims to connect with people during this dark time.
