It is not very common to see strong female friendships in the music industry. Often, singers consider each other as competitors and are busy pushing their songs ahead of other songs. However, when it comes to Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift, we see an exception! Want to know how these two provide an example of a strong friendship? Continue reading to find out.
Selena and Taylor give us major friendship goals! The world knows how proud Taylor was of Selena when the 28-year-old American singer came out of her toxic relationship with Justin Bieber. Selena’s song ‘Lose You to Love Me’ was first heard by Taylor and her parents. The song was a goodbye to all the pain that Justin caused to Selena and was the first step in her journey of self-love.
Selena also does not shy away from expressing her love for Taylor. The 31-year-old has been through a lot of pain. Why? Well, Taylor had to give up the rights on her first number one album ‘Fearless’ as her label sold the rights to a third party without her permission. As devastated as Taylor has been at this, she has now moved on!
On February 11th 2021, Swift announced that she is re-recording her Fearless album and will release the lead single ‘Love Story’ on the same night! Although Taylor did not announce the date for the release of the album, fans speculate she will release it on April 9th 2021!
As the lead single released, Selena Gomez took it to her Instagram to congratulate her best friend on her new feat! She wrote:
“So proud of you, as always, Tay...LISTEN to THIS album ❤️”.
The emphasis on the word ‘this’ points to the fact that injustice was done to Taylor but she has moved on! She has come out as stronger and her new album is the one people should listen to and not the old one.
I am in awe of the friendship these two amazing women share. To be able to wish well for another person who is your competitor in the industry is remarkable. What do you think about their friendship?
