Selena Gomez reveals why she and Taylor Swift are friends

Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift can thank their famous exes for their long-lasting relationship. When asked how she and the Ready for It singer’s friendship first began, the 25-year-old admitted that it’s all because of three famous brothers. “We actually dated the Jonas brothers together,” Selena said during an interview with KISS FM UK.

The Disney Channel added, “It was hysterical. It was amazing, because she was the girl with the big curly hair and all the bracelets and the cowboy boots. And I was definitely up-and-coming, and we just clicked. It was the best thing we got out of those relationships.”

The Reputation singer and Selena may have left those relationships in the past, but over a decade later, the pair's friendship is stronger than ever. “I mean anytime, any place,” Selena answered when asked if an onstage collaboration with Taylor is in the future. “She has been a fighter, a warrior and a friend through all of this."
