Selena Gomez celebrated turning the big 3-0 with BFF Taylor Swift.
On Friday, the “Only Murders in the Building” star shared two photos of herself and Swift, 32, on Instagram. In one, Gomez grins as Swift has her mouth open in mock surprise as she holds up three fingers. In the other, Gomez is giggling as Swift gives the camera a thumbs up.
“30, nerdy and dignified,” the birthday girl captioned the photos, provoking comments from fans, including Camila Cabello who wrote, “PAIR OF BAD BITCHES,” while Diane Keaton posted a string of hearts.
The two friends first bonded in 2008 when they were both dating members of The Jonas Brothers (Gomez saw Nick Jonas while Swift was dating Joe Jonas).
“We actually dated the Jonas Brothers together! It was hysterical,” Gomez said in a KISS-FM UK interview in 2017, when asked how she and Taylor first met. “It was great because she was the girl with the big curly hair and all the bangles 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 two have remained close friends ever since.
In a 2020 interview with The Wall Street Journal Magazine, Swift said of her boyfriend, “I knew from the moment I met her that I would always have her back. In my life, I have the ability to forgive people who hurt me. But I don’t know if I can forgive someone who hurt her.”
Gomez raved about Swift gushing to the outlet: “She has appeared to me in ways I never expected. Flown in because I was injured and experienced something.
“Things that were going on with my family. It has been proven year after year and every moment of my life that she is one of my best friends in the world. We don’t agree on everything, but we respect each other in everything.”
