In March 2014, Taylor headed out of Los Angeles and to the Big Apple — permanently. But why did she make the big move? Right before she left, she had a falling out with Selena Gomez and gave her an ultimatum, forcing Selena to decide between her friendship with Taylor and her relationship with Justin. Was Selena’s choice what drove her to NYC? HollywoodLife.com has the truth!
Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez were the BFFs we always wanted to hang out with. However, since Taylor absolutely despises Justin Bieber, she couldn’t handle her BFF cozying up to the bad boy any longer — so is that why she fled to NYC?
Taylor Swift’s Reason For Moving To NYC: Selena Gomez?
Ever since Taylor moved to New York, she’s been spotted out with many new friends, like Cara Delevigne, Karlie Kloss and Lena Dunham. While she hasn’t been in touch with Selena, it appears that she may have moved to get away from it all — but we’ve learned it’s actually just because the city inspires her!
“She is in New York because she’s working on her album,” a source close to the “Red” singer told HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “She’s putting one out soon but she’s still trying to write some more songs and she’s really inspired by New York. She feels very creative when she’s there, it’s inspiring her to create. It’s such a different head space than Nashville or LA, she loves all three places but right now New York is more her speed.”
It’s nice to hear, since we know that Selena’s going through a tough time right now after finding sexy pics from the Jenner sisters on Justin’s phone — she needs a real girlfriend. Selena should reach out to Taylor — we know they miss each other, and now that Justin’s out of the picture, maybe they could become friends again.
“Taylor’s hopeful that they will eventually be friends again,” the insider revealed. “She misses Selena, but she’s not interested in being friends with her if Justin is still in her life. Taylor thinks he’s like an addiction for Selena and she’s not going to enable her. This is tough love, but for sure Taylor still loves Selena, she always will.”
Selena Leans On Katy Perry For Now
So, until Taylor and Selena reunite, Sel’s leaning on someone who understands what she’s going through — Katy Perry.
“Katy has been helping Selena, she’s doing everything she can to help her right now as far as being a shoulder to cry on, someone to talk to that will understand,” another source told us. “She’s like a big sister to her, a nonjudgemental big sister. Katy doesn’t push her opinions on Selena, but whenever Selena needs her, she is there for her. Katy has a lot of life experience as far as fame and relationships and dealing with players. Compared to Russell Brand or John Mayer, Justin is still a kid. Those guys are real womanizers so Katy knows exactly what Selena is dealing with.”
Plus, Selena just hired Katy’s manager, so it makes sense that they’re getting closer.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Do you think Taylor and Selena will be friends again soon? Should they be?
