There may have been a time when Taylor Swiftmay have disapproved of Selena Gomez‘s life choices, but the two BFFs still remain as tight as ever to this day.

During her latest appearance on The Talk, SelGo opened up about her friendship with the “Shake It Off” songstress, explaining that Swift will always be her voice of reason and what helps her through tough times.

“She supports me — never judges me for anything,” Gomez said. “[She told me] ‘Selena, if you’re the smartest person in the room, I think you’re going to be in the wrong room.'”

The former Disney star added, “She thinks I should constantly surround myself — and I agree with her — with people that are going to make me better [and] that are going to challenge me and motivate me. And it just stuck with me.”

According to Swift, there has never been a feud between the two of them. In her interview with Rolling Stone earlier this year, the singer said she constantly talks to Gomez — even if they live on opposite coasts now.

“People think they have my relationships all mapped out,” Swift said of her friendships. “There were all these blogs, like, ‘Are they feuding? Are they fighting?’ Meanwhile, Selena and I would be on the phone that night, laughing about it. We let them have the one.”
