    In a 2017 interview with KIIS FM UK, the ‘Fetish‘ singer opened up about how she and Swift met, and it’s rooted in the early days of their careers. “We actually dated the Jonas brothers together! It was hysterical,” Gomez said, referring to her relationship with Nick and Swift’s with Joe. “It was amazing, because she was the girl with the big curly hair and all the bracelets and the cowboy boots. And I was definitely up-and-coming, and we just clicked,” she added. “It was the best thing we got out of those relationships.”

    The duo’s first official outing was at the 2011 People’s Choice Awards. That night Swift was voted Favorite Country Artist, while Gomez took home the trophy for Favorite Breakout Artist. The following month, both attended the Vanity Fair Oscar party side by side. The pop singers then had a truly wild time at the American Music Awards. They hung out with future frenemies including Katy Perry and Justin Bieber.

    Swift talked about her relationship with her fellow artist in an E! interview. “It’s been the longest one I think either of us had really,” she explained. “When your life changes, and you become thrust into this really strange whirlwind where what your life is is different from what other people think your life is. And your life is commented on and your life is written about and fictionalized and all that. Both of us have kind of stuck it out and hung in there through all the different changes we’ve gone through.” Swift added, “Longevity is something you really can find very precious and rare in friendships.”

    Selena Gomez Stood Up For Swift Amid 2016 Drama With Kanye West And Kim Kardashian

    After attending the Met Gala back in 2014, Selena Gomez shared a video of the two dancing around the museum. She captioned it, “And during.. sometimes you wanna just be you with someone who knows all your secrets.”

    Their friendship continued through 2015 as well when Gomez shared snaps from Camila Cabello’s birthday celebration. It included Swift, Joey King, Hailee Steinfeld, and Jaime King. The same year Gomez, alongside Taylor Swift’s Squad, appeared in her music video for ‘Bad Blood.’

    They started the year, 2016 by recreating a scene from Swift’s 1989 song, ‘Out of the Woods.’ Gomez used Swift’s lyrics by captioning the post, “Are we in the clear yet?”

    The beauty queen wasn’t far away when drama with Kim Kardashian targeted and Swift ensued. A snap seemingly showed her approving of West’s lyrics about her in his song ‘Famous.’ Gomez fired off a series of tweets in defense of her friend.

    In 2017, Gomez and Swift’s friendship was kept pretty quiet with people speculating about this sudden change. But at the end of the year, Gomez publicly honored Swift on her 28th birthday with a small video and touching caption. “I’m glad you were born,” she wrote on Instagram. “You write all the thoughts some aren’t able to articulate. (ME!) Thank you for giving a voice to this world that is authentic and inspiring. I wish some knew how big your heart actually is.. it’s fierce, bold and freaking wild with light. I’m glad you protect that. Love you @taylorswift.”

    At the Rose Bowl stop of Swift’s ‘Reputation’ tour, the duo performed ‘Hands to Myself.’ Swift later wrote about the moment on Instagram, “To the person I could call at any time of day, who has been there no matter what… you absolutely KILLED IT tonight and everyone was so excited to see you. I love you, and 60,000 people at the Rose Bowl loved you too.”

    The Support And Sisterhood Continues

    Besties, in 2019 welcomed another friend into their circle, Cazzie David. 20wineteen,” Swift captioned a blurry photo of the trio drinking white wine.

    Then came Swift’s drama with Scooter Braun, Bieber’s manager, who acquired the rights to her music catalogue (first six albums’ masters) from Big Machine Label with his purchase of the record company. Swift penned an open letter, calling the situation the “worst case scenario.” Then the ‘Love Yourself‘ singer posted his own response. In turn, Swift took to Tumblr to seemingly confirm that Bieber had cheated on Gomez.

    She liked a Tumblr post that said, “‘we haven’t gotten to communicate our differences’ you cheated on her best friend and then publicly sided with the man who made revenge porn against her was she supposed to invite you over for tea??? Fuck outta here.”

    Back in 2020, Gomez wasn’t by her girl’s side for her PDA-filled Golden Globes date with Joe Alwyn. Though on February 12, Gomez congratulated Swift on the release of her re-recording of her 2009 song ‘Love Story.’ (Swift is re-recording her first six albums now that she is legally allowed to do so in order to gain full ownership of them.)

    Gomez wrote, “So proud of you, as always, Tay…LISTEN to THIS album.” Gomez emphasized “THIS” in her post to make sure fans listen to Swift’s re-recording of her second album, ‘Fearless.’

    The most recent appearance of the gals was at Selena’s 30th bday party. Apparently, Tay couldn’t have missed this huge milestone for anything. Both clicked some cute random photos which later ‘The Only Murders In The Building‘ actress shared on her Instagram account. She captioned it “30, nerdy and worthy.”
