Selena Gomez Takes Stand For Taylor Swift On Hailey Bieber’s Resurfaced Clip
30-year-old Selena Gomez responded candidly defending her ‘best friend’ Taylor Swift, after old footage of Hailey Bieber mocking the Bad Blood singer was unearthed.

“So sorry, my best friend is and continues to be one of the best in the game.”

Taylor Swift And Selena Gomez Share An Unbreakable Friendship
No matter whether it is a breakup or a public feud, Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez are no strangers to drama in the media. They have, however, never ceased to support each other publicly throughout their careers as best friends. Having become friends while dating the Jonas brothers in 2008, they have danced at award shows, performed onstage together, and endorsed each other’s music ever after. In August 2008, Swift and Gomez’s friendship began when they were first seen hanging out with Joe and Nick Jonas, whom they were respectively dating at the time.
The two began attending award functions and music events together over the years, where they lived it up and danced along with the performances. They never shied from expressing their feelings whenever they were asked about their friendship bond. During an interview with Rolling Stone in November 2022, Gomez explained,
“I never fit in with a cool group of girls that were celebrities. My only friend in the industry really is Taylor [Swift], so I remember feeling like I didn’t belong.”
The Love Story singer has also spoken out about her friendship with Gomez and explained how she immediately bonded with Gomez. During her Wall Street Journal interview in January 2020, she said,
“I knew from when I met her I would always have her back. In my life, I have the ability to forgive people who have hurt me. But I don’t know if I can forgive someone who hurts her.”
Although Gomez will always be there for Swift and vice versa, she appears tired of the unwanted negative attention she receives on social media and plans to take a break from it again.
Gomez said in a TikTok video,
“I’m gonna be taking a second from social media cause this is a little silly and I’m 30. I’m too old for this. But I love you guys so much and I will see you guys sooner than later. I’m just going to have to take a break from everything.”
After receiving backlash for the apparent dig at Hailey Bieber, she announced on TikTok Live that she would take a break from social media. Selena Gomez deactivated her TikTok account following her Live video. However, her Instagram account has remained active till now.
