Millie Bobby Brown and Mariah Carey have been slammed by fans after they posted a picture together this week...
The pair have struck up a surprising friendship.
Carey cemented their friendship by taking to Instagram this week.
You've all heard of Millie Bobby Brown, right?
And that's all it took for her parents to pack up their things and move to Los Angeles.

With the rest of Hollywood behind her, she stepped into the industry with ease.

And in 2016, she landed a major role in Stranger Things.

But growing up in the spotlight has come with its own challenges.
via: Getty ImagesThe problem with becoming "famous" is that you have to give up privacy. You're forced to watch your life unfold in a way that you could never imagine, with false news being spread about yourself as well as the people around you.
We've seen what it has done to other young stars.

There's no stone that's left untouched.

It started with her friendships...
via: Getty ImagesOr, as some people claimed, her relationships. Brown was repeatedly seen hanging out with men much older than her which left fans unsettled.
One of the most scandalous was none other than music mogul Drake...
via: Getty ImagesDrake was slammed for hanging out with Milly Bobby Brown on many occasions. Obviously, some think it was innocent but one of his supposed girlfriends was an eighteen-year-old model, who Drake first came into contact with when she was only sixteen and he was twenty-nine. Yikes.
And then the media jumped onto how she chose to dress.
via: Getty ImagesI mean, when we were in our teens, we dressed in tutus with flared jeans underneath. Maybe the occasional hot pink leather jacket and pom-pom earrings to top off the look. But nowadays, things are completely different...
Millie Bobby Brown is the perfect example of that.
via: Getty ImagesAnd thiShe, unlike all of us, opts to wear gowns and outfits that have been deemed "too adult-like." Though some people are stating that she is allowed to dress however she wants, others have piped up saying she is giving those her own age an unattainable standard.
And this week, the star has been subject of scrutiny yet again.
The teen and the one and only Mariah Carey hung out together during a "surprise visit."
Many fans gushed over the pair.
