Although celebrities have friends that are also in the spotlight, many prefer to keep their circle tight with their day one friends. Nicki Minaj and her BFF Tyesha “TT” Kollore of 20-plus years serves as the ultimate example. Selena Gomez is the same way, staying close with her bestie Raquelle Stevens throughout her career.
