Selena Gomez, 31, is all about lifting up her musical peers, and that’s just what she did when addressing the music of Ariana Grande, 30, during a recent guest DJ gig on Sirius XM. “Here’s another song I love, Ariana Grande,” she said before spinning “7 Rings” for listeners on January 10. “I cannot do anything fun without listening to Ariana.”

Selena continued, opening up about how the hitmaker inspires her. “I feel so empowered, and I think she is incredible, and I just have so much fun,” she explained during the set. “I’m the girl that’s playing Ariana all the time, and I think people kind of notice that, but I love it! I think she’s amazing.”

Indeed, Selena has been known to play Ariana’s music in social media posts. Over the summer, in August of 2023, Selena took to Instagram Stories while applying Rare Beauty brow gel with Ariana’s “Be Alright” playing in the background. Ariana took to her social media with a repost, captioning it with a “cutie” and a happy, teary-eyed emoji.

The star was also spotted in a video shared in 2021 singing along to Ariana’s “Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored.” Once again, Ariana took to Instagram stories to gush over the nod with a re-post. “CUTIES ARE YOU KIDDING @SelenaGomez LOVE YOU,” she captioned the video.
