We've been slightly concerned about the status of Taylor Swift's friendship with Selena Gomez of late. Are they still besties? Have they fallen out over Justin Bieber? Has Taylor ditched Selena for every Victoria's Secret model she can get her Instagram filters on?
Then came Met Ball night and Selena posted a video of her and Tay-Tay larking about in their ballgowns and the world breathed a sigh of relief. 'Sometimes you wanna just be you with someone who knows all your secrets,' Selena captioned. PHEWF for that. And now Taylor herself has positively gushed about her pal during an interview with E! News.
'It's been the longest [friendship] I think ?either of us had really. 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 fictionalised 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. ?Longevity is something you really can find very precious and rare in ?friendships.'

Oh, it's enough to bring a tear to our eye. So, as the friendship expert, what is the secret to maintaining your BFF status, Taylor? Brutal honesty, apparently. Admitting that she doesn’t appreciate people telling her what they think she’d like to hear, the country singer prefers a more genuine approach. Step up Selena Gomez and Emma Stone. ‘We talk about everything – except work! It’s always about… relationships, love and guys – all the basic things.’ How to be a fly on that wall!
