Swift and Gomez have been good friends for a long time, having met while dating brothers Joe Jonas and Nick Jonasrespectively in 2008. While the BFFs’ relationships with two-thirds of the Jonas Brothers haven’t worked out, they’ve remained a fixture in each other’s corners.
“I knew it when I met myself [Selena] I’d always have her back,” the “London Boy” singer-turned-date Joe Alwyn since May 2017 — he said Wall Street Journal in January 2020. “In my life I have the ability to forgive people who have hurt me. But I don’t know if I can forgive someone who hurts her.”

Swift can count the Disney Channel alum among the members of her famous “squad,” which includes Blake Lively, Gigi Hadid, Ed Sheeran and the Haim sisters.
“In my 20s, I found myself surrounded by girls who wanted to be my girlfriend,” the “Shake It Off” hitmaker explained in one ell Essay in May 2019. “So I screamed it from the rooftops, posted pictures, and celebrated my newfound acceptance into a sorority, not realizing that other people might still feel the way I did when I felt so alone.”
She continued at the time, “Something like ‘We’re in our young 20s!’ hurls people into groups that can feel like your chosen family. And maybe they will be for the rest of your life. Or maybe they will only be your comrades for an important phase, but not forever. It’s sad, but as you grow, sometimes you outgrow relationships. You may leave friendships along the way, but you will always keep the memories.”
Hours before Swift met up with the Texas native to celebrate their big 3-0 win, Swift surprised the British crowd during Haim’s concert in London.
“I haven’t been on a stage for a very long time,” he said cats the actress told the crowd on Thursday, July 21, before they teamed up for a remixed “Love Story” duet. “It’s nice. It’s very nice. But you know, when I heard that, girls [Alana Haim, Danielle Haim and Este Haim] played in London at O2 [Arena], I thought, ‘I have to see that.’ And it seems like there are about 20,000 other people who thought so too.”
