It appears Demi Lovato and Halsey are cool for the summer, or actually forever now. The singers were once at the center of a "she said, she said" war of the words for a minute but they have now buried the hatchet — if there ever was one to be buried in the first palce — and they just hung out, proving they are nothing but supportive of each other. Demi took to Instagram to share a super cute selfie of the duo writing, "Ran into this beauty today 💕😜😆" in the caption.
OK but really, they look like they're having a blast together. Demi posted another pic on her Instagram story of the girls posing alongside other artists like Wiz Khalifa, Ty Dolla $ign and G-Eazy. "Mad respect for these artists," Demi wrote along with the group photo.
Not only have the girls totally cleared the air, but they're showing us that they truly do have respect for each other as musicians. As you may remember, the drama between them started back when Halsey did an interview with Paper Magazine, where she spoke about how she feels that bisexuality is often exploited in pop music, and (maybe accidentally) referenced Demi's tune, "Cool for the Summer."
"Bisexuality as a taboo. 'Don't tell your mom' or 'We shouldn't do this' or 'This feels so wrong but it's so right.' That narrative is so damaging to bisexuality and its place in society. That's something I've had to fight my whole life," Halsey said.
And in Demi's song, she sings the lyrics, "Don't tell your mother," in a song that is basically all about exploring a same-sex relationship and how she kissed a girl and liked it. (Sorry, yes, that's a Katy Perry reference but you know, had to mention it.) Well, Demi saw Halsey's interview and decided to say something indirectly back to the "Now or Never" singer, taking to Twitter to share her thoughts on the shade that was being thrown her way.
"You know a song is a hit when people are still talking about the lyrics two years later. #shhhhdonttellyourmother," she tweeted.

Halsey went on to say in a series of now deleted tweets that she never mentioned Demi by name and didn't even know that she mentioned an actual lyric from D's song. They have since worked everything out and so it seems at the end of the day, this was all just one big misunderstanding. They're clearly fans of each other and that's what matters most.
