Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift have had a long-lasting BFFship. Despite the seeming dissipation of much of Swift’s famous squad over the past year, Gomez has remained a true blue even during the pop star’s time out of the spotlight. The “Wolves” singer recently revealed some adorable details from their earliest days of their friendship, and it’ll make you love them even more.
“It was hysterical,” Gomez recalled on UK radio station KISS FM of her first introduction to Swift. “Yeah, it was amazing because she was the girl with the big curly hair and all the bracelets and cowboy boots, and I was definitely up and coming. And we just clicked.”
The two pop stars famously met about 10 years ago, when Gomez was dating Nick Jonas and Swift was dating Joe. While neither relationship lasted very long, the connection between the two women obviously did. “It was the best thing we got out of those relationships [with the Jonas brothers],” the “Bad Liar” performer quipped.
Swift’s social media has changed in recent months, from selfies with her squad (and her cats) to promotional material for her new album, Reputation. The switch left fans wondering about the status of many of her high-profile friendships. But any rumors of distance between her and her longtime pal was put to rest in a recent interview that Gomez gave to Zane Lowe.
“It’s really cool to surround yourself with people and be involved with people who are aspiring and changing the way that they dictate what they love, and she’s one of those people who will continue to do that,” Gomez said of her friend. “I obviously love her so much and I want her to do what she does. And she’s killing it. I’m very proud, and obviously a major fan.”
Additionally, Gomez told KISS FM that the pair had spoken just a few days ago, and at this point, it’s safe to say that their bond seems stronger than ever. “She had been a fighter and a warrior and friend through all of this,” Gomez gushed.
