Former Disney stars, Selena Gomez and Miley Cyrus have always been known for their friendship, despite the fact that they have both had their fair share of ups and downs over the years. Recently, Selena Gomez shared two de-glam selfies on Instagram, tagging her old friend Miley Cyrus in the post and captioning it with the phrase "Violet Chemistry." This is a clear reference to a track on Cyrus' newly released eighth studio album, Endless Summer Vacation.

Gomez's post showed her natural beauty as she looked straight into the camera, sans makeup or any filters, in one photo and smirking in the other. Her confidence matched the lyrics of the song perfectly, showing that she is comfortable in her own skin and embracing her flaws. This is a message that both Gomez and Cyrus have been promoting in recent years, as they have both opened up about their struggles with mental health and body image.



As per People, the two stars reunited for the first time since spending all their time at Disney together in April 2020. Gomez appeared on Cyrus' Instagram show, Bright Minded, to discuss mental health. On the show, Cyrus revealed that the two reconnected. "I'm just really happy that we did this new DM. It was very sweet because you just sent a butterfly emoji," Cyrus told Gomez on the show. "And that's enough. Connecting with people and letting them know that you're there. A butterfly emoji is totally enough."

The song that Selena chose to post about features a melodic beat, with Cyrus singing about the importance of staying connected with someone special. The chorus includes the lyrics: "Stay awhile, stay awhile with me / Stay awhile, don't deny the violet chemistry / Stay awhile, stay awhile with me / Stay awhile, put your arms around me / Put them around me." The reference was not lost on fans of the two stars, who flooded the comments section of Gomez's post with excitement about the possibility of a collaboration between the two.
