Demi Lovato really doesn't care about being friends with Miley Cyrus.

The 22-year-old pop stars both found fame via The Disney Channel, thanks to their starring roles in Camp Rock and Hannah Montana, respectively, but Lovato has no interest in staying friends with the "We Can't Stop" singer. In fact, when a fan asked her to describe her current relationship with Cyrus on The TJ Show/Boston's 103.3 AMP Radio Monday, Lovato said, "Um…yeah…that, um…we're, we're like... We're acquaintances." Without divulging specific details, she explained, "It's life, and people change."

"I don't have anything in common with her anymore," she added. "I wish her the best."

Though they're no longer friends, Lovato has only said kind things about her peer. "Miley has been one of my best friends growing up and so I'm happy for her," the "Heart Attack" singer raved on Fox 31's Everyday in October 2013. "She's doing what she wants to do and this is her time to break out and figure out, you know, what she wants to do in her career and her image and everything...I'm happy seeing her happy because I love her so much. And, you know, she doesn't care what people think, nor should she."

Of course, Cyrus isn't the only Disney Channel star who's no longer in Lovato's life.

When the "Really Don't Care" singer appeared on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live in August 2014, she confirmed that she is no longer following Selena Gomez on social media. "I think it's just one of those things where people change and people grow apart," said Lovato, who refused to bash her former BFF.

Instead of criticizing her fellow pop stars, Lovato would rather focus on fostering relationships with her fans. "I used to get frustrated that just because I wanted to sing, I was automatically expected to be a role model," she recently admitted in the 19th issue of Fault magazine. "But I had to grow up and realize that no matter what I do, I'm going to be somebody's role model." The "Let It Go" singer added, "I pride myself in being a role model but I'm not perfect—I curse like a sailor and I sometimes make mistakes, but at the same time I want to be what I know my little sister and that younger generation needs."
