Selena had also told the Herald Sun that they clicked instantly, and became “best friends.”
The two besties also made their red carpet appearance together at the premiere of Another Cinderella Story. Selena discussed how they met when they were still very young, and that had been with each other through rough times. “We met when she was 18. I was 15 or 16. She was so great to me. Then we became best friends. She would fly out to see me when I was going through something really hard. We’d eat a lot of fattening food and vent,” she said.
“I learnt a lot from her. She’s an amazing musician,” she said. “Everything I go through or say is filtered through her eyes and vision,” she added.
