Selena Gomez may have found a new friend in Ariana Grande.

The 22 year old ”Dangerous Woman” singer stood up for Selena, declaring that there is much more to the 22-year-old than being Justin Bieber’s ex. 

When speaking to Billboard magazine, Ariana said of Selena “I’ll never be able to swallow the fact that people feel the need to attach a successful woman to a man when they say her name. Call her by her name! I hate that. Like, I’m fuming. Sorry. You opened up… I need to take a sip of water and breathe. Don’t get me started on this shit.”

Selena was so flattered that one her friends told “Selena was very flattered with what Ariana had to say. Even though they aren’t super close, she appreciates her support.”

The source continues to say that it is clear Selena truly feels that what Ariana said wasn’t just important for her but ”applies to women everywhere.’

This could be the start of a beautiful friendship. We hope.

We really hope.
