Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift have been friends for a little over a decade now, and many look up to their friendship as the ultimate “friendship goals.” Although both of them have retreated from the spotlight recently, save for a few public appearances and track releases, their friendship is still so alive and well. Here are the reasons their friendship is one for the ages.

1. Swift has a framed photo of her and Gomez in her home

Just when fans thought it was friendship over between them, Swift posted a video on Instagram showing herself playing with two cats in her home. Caught in the video was a framed photo of her hugging Gomez. Who still does that nowadays?

2. Gomez has the nicest words to say about Swift

When one fan asked Gomez about Swift on Instagram, Gomez replied with something that only solidified their BFF status. “Taylor’s awesome. I love her. She’s amazing. I talked to her today. She’s literally like my big sister, I tell her everything. She’s so smart it freaks me out,” Gomez said.

3. They don’t let boys get in the way

There was a time when Gomez and Swift were rumored to be feuding over Justin Bieber, but the issue only made them chuckle off their feet. “People think they have my relationships all mapped out,” Swift said in a later interview. “There were all these blogs, like, ‘Are they feuding? Are they fighting?’ Meanwhile, Selena and I would be on the phone that night, laughing about it. We let them have that one,” she added.

4. They celebrate each other’s successes

In a 2017 interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, Gomez told the world how much she loved Swift and how happy she was for all that her BFF had achieved so far. “It’s everything you would want and more so I’m very proud and obviously a major fan,” she said.

5. Even their parents approve of their friendship

Gomez’s mom got interviewed once before the launch of “13 Reasons Why,” and she made a clean breast of what she thought about her daughter’s friendship with Swift. “What I love about that friendship is it’s so solid, and with Taylor I feel like they can tell each other anything and it will be an honest, in-your-best-interest kind of relationship,” she said. 

6. Swift was there for Gomez throughout her mental health ordeal

As Gomez slowly started to step back into the spotlight after her bout of depression last year, she leaned on Swift for support. A source revealed in an interview that Swift did everything for Gomez privately, making it a point that she's always there for her BFF after Gomez’s treatment.
