Selena Gomez Gushes Over BFF Taylor Swift

Nowadays, headlines about celebrity feuds tend to trump ones about friendship. Despite the negativity that may pop up in Hollywood, Taylor Swift is a queen of girl power and supporting her squad. From Zendaya to Lena Dunham to Cara Delevingne, the group is constantly growing. Although it's easy to think, "Is she really friends with all those people?", I'm going to have to say yes, especially based on a recent Instagram post. Selena Gomez shared a photo with Taylor Swift and a few other famous faces — Lily Aldridge and Gigi Hadid. But it's the caption that's worth talking about. Acknowledging the power of T. Swift, Gomez wrote,

@taylorswift -we just show up. Thank you for making us and all beautiful women feel beautiful

How sweet is that? By bringing together this great group of people, Swift makes them feel important and beautiful, just as they are. To me, that sounds incredibly awesome. For the record, Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift go way back. They actually met at a Jonas Brothers concert when Gomez was 15 or 16. These may have their ups and downs (what friendship doesn't?), but at the end of the day, they have one another's backs. They're always vocalizing their support for one another and Gomez's latest Instagram is no exception.

Here's a round-up of other celebrities who have expressed appreciation for their friendships with T. Swift. Overall, these ladies prove that the singer spreads mad love, not bad blood.


Taylor Swift and Lorde are close friends, who not only share concert performances together, but cooking classes too.

Camila Cabello

Remember when Tay threw Camila Cabello an epic birthday party? Swift also brought Cabello and the rest of Fifth Harmony on stage at her concert. Afterwards, Cabello shared an Instagram with a caption about how much she appreciates Swift.

Mariska Hargitay

After starring in the "Bad Blood" video together, Hargitay and Swift became actual friends. It's cool that Swift's Law & Order SVU obsession actually led to a real-life bond.

Lena Dunham

Taylor Swift is not only close with Lena Dunham, but also Dunham's boyfriend Jack Antonoff, who she worked on 1989 with. Dunham often shares her support for Swift on social media.

Avril Lavigne

Despite a slight misunderstanding, Avril Lavigne and Taylor Swift buried any rumors of a feud when they performed together. Afterwards, Lavigne posted about how great Swift is.

Jaime King

Taylor Swift is the godmother to Jaime King's son. She also treats the rest of King's family well, as evidenced by the Instagram above.

So there you have it — the love for T. Swift is real. Looks like Selena Gomez isn't the only one who's proud to be part of this squad.
