If we want to talk about one of the more surprisingly normal friendships in all of entertainment, we really don’t have to look too much further than Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift. The two have talked in the past about their desire to do the same sort of things that any pair of friends would do — from shopping to spending time at each other’s homes. (They even tried to visit a college campus once — but were pretty much mobbed by legions of fans in the process.)
As for why their friendship works so well, Selena told Top of the Pops recently that you can really just attribute it to one thing at the end of the day — that they are each there to pick the other one up during tough times:
“Every problem I ever have is healable by Taylor Swift.
“What I love about Taylor is that she believes in the whole love story – Prince Charming, soul mates. Because of her, I haven’t lost faith.
“When Taylor was going through a hard time breaking up with Joe Jonas, we’d make each other playlists. I’d send her some girl-empowering music and she’d send some back.”
Unfortunately for Taylor and Selena, neither girl is really getting much in the way of an opportunity at the moment to spend time with the other. They are both in the midst of a rather hectic touring schedule at the moment — even though Selena will be wrapped up with her longest stretch next month, it will be November before Taylor can say the same. (She will also be in Australia and New Zealand during March 2012.)
Are you glad to see that there are some great examples of celebrity friends out there?
