Miley Cyrus and Ariana Grande have been friends for several years, and when Ariana Grande went through her recent breakup with Pete Davidson, Miley was there for her.
More than three years ago, Cyrus and Grande’s friendship really took off when they recorded the music video for Cyrus’s “Don’t Dream It’s Over”.
Cyrus also took to Instagram to support her friend after the heartbreaking attack at Grande’s concert in Manchester last year.
The now-deleted post read,
“Wishing I could give my friend @arianagrande a great big hug right now. Love love love you … so sorry you had to be apart [sic] of such a tragic event! my most sincere condolences to anyone and everyone affected by this horrific attack! all I can do is send as much HOPE & PEACE your way! This MUST end! No more war … no more innocent lives taken … L-O-V-E.”
Cyrus went on to perform at Ariana’s “One Love Manchester” benefit concert.
Grande has also shown Miley love.
After Miley covered her own “No Tears Left to Cry,” Ariana tweeted about her love for her friend.

Recently, Grande split from her fiancé, Pete Davidson. The breakup followed her adorable (and now heartbreaking) room dedicated to Pete in her “Sweetener” pop-up. It also inspired her newest hit, “Thank U, Next”.
A couple of weeks ago, Miley went on The Howard Stern Show as a surprise guest. On the show, she debuted her new duet of “Silent Night” with Robin Quivers. She also spoke out about California’s wildfires as well as texting her buddy, Ariana Grande.
She told Stern:
“I’m an emoji person, so I just sent a bunch of hearts and the little cat with the heart eyes.”
She continued to explain why she chose those particular emoji:
“I literally think I sent the cat with the heart eyes. I thought it was slightly, maybe even kind of making her feel good, like maybe I was hitting on her a little bit. It felt like to me, it felt maybe like a little, ‘Oh hey, someone loves you. If it’s not working, here I am.”
As for Grande’s response? She sent Miley a single cloud:
“It all said everything. I think she was saying, ‘I’m okay, and I’m here. … Thank you for thinking of me.’ That’s what I think it meant.”
In the interview, Miley addressed the fact that she and Grande don’t spend much time together:
“I would say she’s a good friend. It’s not about how many hours spent or how many inside jokes you have, but it’s about the real s—.”
The internet is, and always has been, obsessed with the pair.
Omg, there’s definitely a collab in Miley’s new album, I’m so excited???????????? queens
