Taylor Swift Insists She's Not Collecting Frenemies Despite Selena Gomez Scuffle

Taylor Swift, Selena GomezTaylor Swift has always seemed to collect girl friends the way cartoon bears collect honey, but it seems as though there's some bad blood involved in a few of those relationships. The pop star recently admitted that her upcoming single "Bad Blood" (see what I did there?) is about another singer, and we're pretty sure it's Katy Perry.

And remember earlier this year when she had an apparent falling out with Selena Gomez? From the looks of it, Tay ditched Selena when she needed her the most, because she hated her BFF's on-again-off-again boyfriend Justin Bieber. Not so, insists the "Shake It Off" singer! She said in a recent interview that she and Selena are still friends, and that was all just tabloid fodder.


The 24-year-old songstress told Rolling Stone that there's never been any contention between her and Selena, despite what people write about them.

"People think they have my relationships all mapped out. There were all these blogs, like, 'Are they feuding? Are they fighting?'" she dished. "Meanwhile Selena and I would be on the phone that night, laughing about it. We let them have that one."

At the time, a source close to Tay gossiped that she had not "cut her off," and that she thinks of Selena like her little sister and will always be there for her.

Even if she (like the vast majority of America and probably most of Canada) has no use for the likes of the Biebs. In the not-too-distant past, Taylor was a press conference for the 2013 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas when someone in the media asked her what she thought of Bieber winning the Milestone Award.

She answered succinctly, "Can we have another question?" We're going to go ahead and translate that as, "I hate the D-bag and have nothing nice to say about him, but I'm a class act who uses the powers of passive-aggressiveness to get my jabs in." Same dif, really.

Well, naughty ex-boyfriends aside, it looks as though these two are just as tight as ever. Could it be that she and Selena decided to use the gossip for free publicity? Nah, stars never do that. However, we may or may not be looking for a similar "of course we're still friends" announcement from Tay about Katy Perry in about six months.

Do you think Taylor Swift is actually fueding with anyone?
