It’s no secret that Demi Lovato and One Direction cutie Niall Horan have been talking for a while…through Skype. Although each of them have admitted how great they think the other is, the two have yet to actually meet in person. But that’s about to change because next week, both Niall and Demi will be at the VMAs! The singing superstars may have declared that they’re just friends, but Niall isn’t hiding his excitement for their first face-to-face meeting.

“Me and Demi, we’re just really good friends,” Niall told Ryan Seacrest during an interview on KIIS FM. “She’s been doing well. She’s been updating me on what she’s been doing and stuff, and hopefully I will get to see her next week when we come to LA for the VMAs.”
