Taylor Swift on Selena Gomez: The Longevity of Our Friendship Is “Precious and Rare” (VIDEO)
Never mind "Jelena" and "Haylor" and all these angsty romances. The major love story, so far, for Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez is the love they have together as friends. Taylena forever.
They've been through a lot, and there was a time recently when we thought they might not make it. But they stood strong together at the 2014 Met Gala, when Selena shared a video with Tay, writing, "Sometimes you wanna just be you with someone who knows all your secrets."
Aww! (But seriously, that's probably also why she keeps going back to Justin Bieber.)
Taylor, 24, talked to E! News after what looked like a BFF reunion, asking what makes her friendship with Selena, 21, so special.
"It's been the longest one I think either of us had, really," Taylor told E!. "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 it's 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 and I think that's — longevity is something you really can find very precious and rare in friendships."
Well said, Tay. We have no experience as superstars, but it has to be tough to tell who is a real friend and who is using you for fame, etc. Selena and Taylor know each other better than that and they certainly don't need to pose with each other to stay relevant in the industry, they already have millions of fans on their own. Hopefully they this strong forever. Next time we hear “The Oath,” we’ll think of you, Taylena!
