Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez arrive at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards at Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE on Aug. 28, 2011 in Los Angeles. 

Pop star Demi Lovato chose to bravely tell every single part of her story in her revealing documentary titled Demi Lovato: Simply Complicated, which arrived exclusively to YouTube yesterday (Oct. 17).

You'd think, naturally, in the age of Internet trolls, that would set Lovato up for unwarranted cyberbullying, but the positive and supportive reactions to the doc have been what's stood out the most -- including one from a celebrity longtime pal of Demis.

Selena Gomez was caught in the comments of Lovato's Instagram post, in which the latter announced the release of the new documentary. "This was beautiful," Gomez wrote in response. "I'm so happy for you. You always continue to be bold and real. I wish more people were like you." 

She added another comment just underneath the first one: "Love you." 

Lovato answered Gomez by replying directly to her, "@selenagomez thank you so much, this means the world to me and more. Love you too," accompanied by prayer-hands and heart emojis. 


Proud to present… #SimplyComplicated. Watch the full documentary now on @YouTube!! Link is in my bio --

So now, Lovatics can not only properly spaz out about one hour and 20 minutes of brand new, all-Demi content but also two powerful women in the music industry publicly supportive each other's vulnerabilities.

Gomez and Lovato's friendship dates back to when the two pop forces were just seven-year-old girls on Barney & Friends. Having both grown up through the Disney ranks, they have always been intertwined. With some bumps along the way -- who wants to focus on the negative? -- they are now seemingly in as good a place in their friendship as ever. 

When Gomez revealed last month that she had undergone a kidney transplant due to complications from her ongoing (and what will be a lifelong) battle with autoimmune disease Lupus, Lovato spoke out by telling PEOPLE, "I think that she is a very strong woman. I'm very happy and proud of her."
