It’s incredibly hard to live your life in the public eye — especially when you’re the most-followed person on Instagram like Selena Gomez is.

With all those eyes on you, even simple tasks can suddenly become more difficult. When you’re dealing with a disease like lupus, the way that Selena is, it gets even harder.

But despite announcing back in August that she’s taking a break, the attention — both positive and negative — just keeps coming.

Luckily, fellow Disney Channel alumna Hilary Duff has Selena’s back.

According to Seventeen, Selena came up in an on-air conversation between Hilary and Sirius XM’s JustJenny.

She also talked about how even though celebrity gossip can be fun and entertaining, people know better than to get too wrapped up in it.

We think Hilary is spot on. It’s easy to get caught up in the buzz of an Instagram feud or a particularly juicy rumor, but at the end of the day we’re all just fans of Selena who love and care about her.

We love both of these ladies — and the girl power realness they share.
