Selena Gomez, 22, and Zedd, 25, are still in the honeymoon phase and her bestie Taylor Swift, 25, wants to make sure they stay there! “She’s been giving advice to both of them and it seems to be working,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.

Taylor Swift On Selena Gomez & Zedd Relationship: She’s Helping Romance Heat Up
Taylor may not have introduced Selena and Zedd but she’s “very invested in helping them feel secure with each other,” our source reveals.
“Taylor is definitely playing cupid with Selena and Zedd. She loves them as a couple. She thinks they bring out the best in each other,” an insider reveals to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Selena and Zedd have been spending every spare second together lately, both in and out of the studio, as Zedd works with Sel on her new album. The pair, who are planning to make their official debut as a couple at the upcoming Grammy Awards on Feb. 8, are obviously committed to building a bright future together, so they must really appreciate Tay’s help!
“Taylor’s been telling Selena to not talk about Justin [Bieber] with Zedd. She told Selena that if she needs to vent about Justin, she can call her instead, and she will remind her why she left him in the first place,” our source reveals. “Taylor has also been advising Selena to not come across as super needy, to be flirty and fun, to stay in the moment and to just be herself.”
Great advice, Taylor! The “Blank Space” singer also shared some words of wisdom with Zedd, telling him he should, “Make Selena laugh, keep it light, don’t ask endless questions about her thoughts on Justin. In fact, don’t talk about Justin. Show her that you care. Little things go a long way, like cute text messages. Listen to her and just be yourself.”
Taylor knows Selena so well so if anyone can help strengthen Zeddlena, it’s her! “Selena and Zedd both trust Taylor and know that she only wants the very best for both of them,” adds our source.
