Gomez considers Swift her sister
Popstar Selena Gomez (left) has said that American singer Taylor Swift (below) is like a family member to her. Asked about her eight-year-long friendship with Swift, Gomez said: “She’s like a sister to me.” The 23-year-old added that the duo formed a close bond when they dated brothers Nick and Joe Jonas. “Taylor and I dated Jonas brothers together. We met when she was 18. I was 15 or 16. She was so great to me. Then we became best friends. She would fly out to see me when I was going through a tough time. We’d eat a lot of fattening food and vent,” she said. Gomez praised Swift for encouraging her to be more open and helping her make more friends in the industry. “Taylor is a lot more trusting than I am. I have trust issues, given my situation. She’s very open, so she brings out this other side of me,” she said.
