Selena Gomez took the time during her speech to thank her BFF Demi Lovato as she accepted the Young Humanitarian Award for her extensive work with UNICEF on Feb. 27!
These two have been friends since their Barney & Friends days, and while they hit a rough patch when Demi was struggling with her personal demons and lashing out, now they’re closer than ever! And it looks like Selena is thankful to Demi for supporting her during her own rehab stint.

“I want to thank Demi. Just the fact that we’re here at 21 years old, and we’ve always talked about using our voice to help this generation. Sometimes I feel like we’re the only ones holding the fort and I’m so thankful for you [inspiring] me every day.”
