Never forget that Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato started out on “Barney & Friends” and it was awesome

We all know that before they were the divas they are today, Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato were stars on Disney Channel shows.

Selena shows off her skillz early in the episode.

We can totally see them starting to bond over their love of music.


Yep, they made pretty cute kids before they were divas, while they’re hanging with Barney and his friends, learning about brass instruments. And we’re totally digging how they’re spreading the love at the end of the show, with the classic “I love You” song.

Even though they hang out with giant talking dinosaurs, they were still as shocked as anyone when the stuffed animal transformed — “RUN!”
