Ever wonder what it’s like to be Gigi Hadid’s BFF? Well, now you can get a better idea — because the blonde beauty opened up to EXCLUSIVELY about how ‘cool’ she and her group of supermodel gal pals are!

We have major #SquadGoal envy when it comes to Gigi Hadid, 20, and her beautiful besties like Kendall Jenner, 19, Hailey Baldwin, 18, and even Taylor Swift, 25. While young women can often pit themselves against one another, the Sports Illustrated stunner spoke with EXCLUSIVELY, explaining that she and her clique have nothing but love and support to share. Aww!

Gigi Hadid On Kendall Jenner & Taylor Swift Friendships — They’re ‘Really Cool’

We caught up with Gigi when she walked the red carpet at Maybelline New York’s 100 Year Anniversary on May 14 in NYC. Looking gorgeous as ever, the 20-year-old chatted with EXCLUSIVELY, telling us how she and her crew of famous friends remain just as beautiful on the inside, as well.

“I think it’s really cool that I live in a generation of models where it’s cool to be nice and it’s cool to have friends and have friends that support each other,” Gigi told us about her relationships with Kendall and Hailey.

We think it’s cool, too! One BFF who stands out above the rest for Gigi? She might not be a model, but she is our favorite country-pop powerhouse. Yep, we’re talking about Taylor!

“I think someone that’s doing that really well right now is Taylor Swift and with her new music video that’s coming out in a few days from now that she’s one of the people who is really supporting women in the entertainment business,” the Vogue Australia cover girl explained. “It’s really inspiring to see that and I think that it’s kind of what we want to share with our generation is that that’s the generation we want to be.”

We second all of that, Miss Hadid!

Gigi Hadid Appearing In Taylor Swift’s  Star-Studded ‘Bad Blood’ Music Video

That “new music video” Gigi told us about? Yeah, she’s talking about Taylor’s highly-anticipated mini-movie for “Bad Blood,” which Gigi happens to be starring in! Along with our girl G, Swifty’s hottest friends like Karlie Kloss, 22, Ellie Goulding, 28, Zendaya, 18, and Lena Dunham, 28, are all set to make appearances in what is to be the most epic music video of, dare we say, all time?!

“She texted me [and asked if I’d be in it],” Gigi tells us of Taylor’s invitation to be in the vid. Not gonna lie, we’re a bit jealous Tay-Tay didn’t send us a text message! Even still though, we couldn’t be more excited to see the final product, set to debut on May 17 at the Billboard Music Awards.

“The version of ‘Bad Blood’ we will see at Billboard is the main version of the video but it is also one of the versions of the video in a planned series,” a source reveals. “So much footage was filmed that she is going to release more via social media as the weeks continue. They will include new footage and remixed and redited versions. The one played during the show is expected to have a ‘To Be Continued’ tag at the end of it.”

We. Literally. Can. Not. Wait!
