Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift have been best friends for over a decade. They first met as teenagers in 2008. At the time, Gomez was starring in the Disney Channel series “Wizards of Waverly Place.” Meanwhile, Swift was getting ready to drop her second album, “Fearless.” In the years since then, Gomez and Swift have become some of the biggest stars in Hollywood. While they’ve both changed so much over the years, one thing that has remained the same is their friendship.

Despite the pair being busier than ever, Gomez and Swift still make time to hang out. After spending the Fourth of July together, the stars reunited just weeks later at the 2023 VMAs, where they were each other’s biggest cheerleaders throughout the night. At one point during the show, they got up from their seats to give each other a hug and pose for photos together. The moment was just one of many public interactions Gomez and Swift have shared together.
