If there’s one celebrity friendship we can all admit is true endgame, it’s Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift‘s. Aside from having the best meet-cute story ever (they both dated a Jonas Brother at the same time!), the two have been friends for more than a decade now. During that time, they’ve praised each other, supported each other, and have even been there for each other amid all their boyfriend-related drama. But in case you thought that the BFFs weren’t as close anymore, Selena is here to share some insight on their friendship, and, you guys, she confirmed that #Taylena is closer than ever!
In a now-deleted Instagram live video that Selena recorded on Saturday, September 22, a fan asked her how Taylor was doing, and Selena revealed that the pair had just had a heart-to-heart that very day. “How’s Taylor? Taylor’s awesome,” she said. “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.”

We would have LOVED to be a fly on the wall during their conversation! We can only imagine how much they had to talk about. Selena’s upcoming music and her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber secretly marrying model Hailey Baldwin must have come up, as well as Taylor’s new beau Joe Alwyn. But, whatever it is they discussed, we’re sure they had a fun time catching up with one another.
The “Back to You” singer’s friendship update comes just a few months after she posted an Instagram tribute to Taylor after the two took the stage at a show during Taylor’s Reputation Stadium Tour.
At the concert, Selena told the crowd how grateful she is to have Taylor in her life. “I have to say thank you to my best friend of about 12 years, almost 13, and the reason why she has been one of my best friends is because this person has never ever judged a single decision I’ve made,” Selena said on stage. “She’s encouraged me when I’ve had nothing to be encouraged about, and I don’t know if I would be as strong as I am if I didn’t have you and your family because you’ve changed my life.”
BFF goals, forever and always. We think we’ll keep an eye out for Selena’s next IG Live session so we can ask her how we can join the Taylor-Selena BFF squad, too…
