Demi Lovato wishes everybody the best, but that doesn't mean they're still a part of her life. 

Nearly two years since being hospitalized for an overdose, life is a bit different for the 27-year-old Grammy nominee, who now has a new manager, a new single and a new life motto. 

"That's why the song I have coming out is called 'I Love Me'—we are good by ourselves," she told Ellen DeGeneres on her daytime talk show of the song's meaning. "We don't need a partner, we don't need, like, substance. We're good."

While the star is forging ahead in her new life path, some of her famous friends are no longer in the picture. As she revealed in a new interview with Harper's Bazaar, she's no longer in contact with the Jonas Brothers, the trio of siblings she's known since their shared Disney days in the early aughts. 

Though she did not elaborate on why they're no longer in touch, Lovato did diplomatically address where she stands with another Disney alum, Selena Gomez

"When you grow up with somebody, you're always going to have love for them. But I'm not friends with her, so [her Instagram Story post] felt..." Lovato told the magazine before stopping herself. "I will always have love for her, and I wish everybody nothing but the best." 

Demi Lovato Through the Years

As a reminder, Gomez took to her Instagram Story back in January to compliment Lovato's emotional 2020 Grammys performance of "Anyone," writing, "I wish there were words to describe how beautiful, inspirational and DESERVED this moment was. Demi I'm so happy for you. Thank you for your courage and bravery."

However, she does still talk to Miley Cyrus. "She's awesome, and I love her to death and always will, always have. But I think she's kind of the only one from that era that I still stay in touch with," she said. 

As for her former famed longtime love, Wilmer Valderrama—who is now engaged to Amanda Pacheco—that ship has sailed. 

"I'm really happy for him and I wish him nothing but the best, but we're not in each other's lives, haven't spoken in a long time," Lovato confirmed. "But I think I needed that because I needed to learn to be okay on my own. When you get into a relationship with somebody at that young of an age and then you spend six years with somebody, you don't really get to learn about yourself."
