It’s been a tough couple of days for Taylor Swift as she continues to be attacked and called a liar over her involvement with Kanye West’s ‘Famous’ song. Despite all the haters, Tay is counting her blessings after receiving tons of ‘love and support’ from her beautiful BFF Selena Gomez. HollywoodLife.com has all the EXCLUSIVE details!
Taylor Swift, 26, is getting by with a little help from her friends! That’s for sure. One pal who hasn’t held back is Selena Gomez, 23, who came out swinging with some strong words. “Taylor is in awe with how much love and support she’s been getting from her friends, and from Tom of course. She’s especially grateful that Selena stood up for her and defended her,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. The “Kill ‘Em With Kindness” singer wasn’t about to let her friend get slammed by a bunch of nasty comments without speaking up!
On June 17, Selena didn’t waste any time expressing her outrage, after Kim Kardashian released a secret phone conversation between Taylor and Kanye discussing his controversial song “Famous”. Sel didn’t mince her words when she tweeted, “There are more important things to talk about… Why can’t people use their voice for something that f**king matters? Truth is last thing we need right now is hate, in any form.” You tell ’em!
Selena has been encouraging Tay to “focus on her songwriting as a way to vent”, and to come see her perform when she’s in Australia so she can give her bestie “a big hug”. Talk about perfect timing! Sel’s ‘Revival’ tour will take her to Queensland on Aug. 11, which is where Tay has been staying with Tom Hiddleston for his Thor: Ragnarok filming.
