Pop stars have other pop star BFFs, it's some sort of secret way to get ahead. As Taylor Swift disbands her squad of supermodels in-between 1989 live shows, there are some who stick around either because Taylor had a tracking device implanted in them or she needs some good old guy advice.
One of these lucky perma-friends (this is what Taylor uses in lieu of "permanent friends") is Selena Gomez. She's already appeared as the bad guy in Taylor's "Bad Blood" music video (or maybe she was the good guy and it was hidden from us) and has spoken out numerous times about her relationship with Taylor, specifically that they don't have slumber parties with pillow fights.
Their latest effort to cement their friendship resulted in an Instagram story of sorts. Swift recently rereleased her single "Out of the Woods" and came out with a video. As she's been hanging out in Los Angeles lately, her and Gomez took to recreating it a little on both of their Instagrams.
