6 Times Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift Sang Each Other’s Songs
When it comes to celebrity friendships, it can sometimes be really hard to tell which ones are actually genuine. However, when it comes to BFFs Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift, we’ve never once questioned whether their friendship was real or not, because TBH, anyone could see that they’re total BFF goals.
Over the years, we’ve watched Tay and Sel dance together at awards shows, celebrate birthdays together, give each other career advice, and support each other’s accomplishments, so it’s safe to say these two are pretty much besties for life. Even more amazing is that despite their work commitments and their time consuming romantic relationships, these two have somehow managed to stay as close as ever and we LOVE them for it.
However, even though they’ve managed to do all of that stuff together, some of our favorite memories of the two were when they supported one another by performing each other’s songs! Not only were these moments a true sign of friendship between the two international pop star BFFs, but they gave us fans INCREDIBLE covers at the same time. So, yeah, it was a MAJOR win for all of us! Take a look:
1. When Selena performed “You Belong With Me” at the Indianapolis State Fair.
The first time Sel rocked out to one of Tay’s songs (in public) was at the Indianapolis State Fair in 2010. We’ll be honest… some notes were a little rough, but even so, we love that even back in 2010 Selena wanted to show her support for her bestie by performing one of her hit songs. After all, just about everyone knew that song, so it was definitely a crowdpleaser.
2. When Taylor asked Selena to join her for a duet of “Who Says” at Madison Square Garden.
One of our favorite concert traditions that Taylor continues to do every tour is when she brings her favorite artists on stage to do a duet of one of their hit songs. Well, in 2011, Tay asked Sel to join her on the final North American Speak Now World Tour date. Sel took the stage at MSG in New York City alongside her BFF, Taylor, and together they performed an amazing duet of Selena’s empowering hit single, “Who Says.” Two female pop star BFFs taking over Madison Square Garden? We’re SO here for it!
3. When Selena covered “I Knew You Were Trouble” at a UNICEF Benefit Concert.
Selena has been an ambassador for UNICEF since 2009, and in 2013, she performed at a concert that benefitted the incredible organization. Even more special was that she chose to do an acoustic cover of Tay’s song, “I Knew You Were Trouble,” and not only did it sound completely magical, but she looked like a fairy princess as she performed barefoot while wearing a flower crown. Performing for charity, supporting your BFF’s music, and looking like an actual princess? Our EVERYTHING goals, TBH!
4. When Selena hit up Taylor’s 1989 World Tour for a duet of “Good For You.”
When you’re at a Taylor Swift concert and she brings Selena Gomez out on stage, it pretty much feels like you’re hanging out with your best girlfriends on a typical Saturday night. Well, the same was true when Tay invited Sel to join her for a duet of “Good for You” at the Staples Center during the 1989 World Tour. This performance was pretty much a dream come true, except in our dreams we’re singing into a hairbrush and dancing in front of a mirror with them, but, you know… you can’t have it all!
5. When Selena rocked out to “Shake It Off” during Carpool Karaoke.
When Selena did Carpool Karaoke with James Corden, not only did they sing Selena’s hit songs, but they also sang along to Tay’s “Shake It Off.” Well, it is a total bop, so can we really blame them? Plus, it’s a great song to sing along to in the car! Trust us… we would know.
6. When Selena showed her support for Reputation by jamming out to “Gorgeous” in the car.
As it turns out, “Shake It Off” isn’t the only Tay song you can rock out to in the car. Most recently, Selena decided to show her support for her BFFs latest album, Reputation, by singing along to the song, “Gorgeous,” during a car ride. We get it… we’re listening to Reputation for the rest of forever, too!
