She is also a singer who has released a lot of songs that have become incredibly popular. Like Selena, they were both young when they became famous. Taylor is known for singing really personal songs that reflected her experiences. Her texts are about ex-boyfriends, current boyfriends, friends, and even other celebrities. In fact, singing about the things going on in her life has become something she is known for.

Some of her music like Bad Blood, We Are Never Getting Back Together, I Knew You Were Trouble, and Shake It Off, went on to be massive hits and topped Billboard charts.

Clearly, these are two hardworking women, and we can understand how they have been able to forge a friendship based on their similar background and success.

How did they become friends?

They are friends for over 12 years and interestingly enough, dating the Jonas Brothers had a lot to do with it. In an interview with the British radio station, KISS FM, Selena revealed that being in a relationship with members of the band strengthened their bond.

"It was hysterical," Selena said of their brief flings with Nick and Joe, adding that at the time, it seemed she and Taylor did not have much in common.

She was the girl with the big curly hair and all the bracelets and the cowboy boots. And I was definitely up-and-coming, and we just clicked. It was the best thing we got out of those relationships.

She also described Taylor as "a fighter, a warrior, and a friend."

Selena said they both now enjoy a friendly relationship with the Jonas Brothers. "They're lovely, by the way. We're all friends now."

It's really nice to see a friendship between two celebrities that has lasted this long. It just goes to show that underneath all the fame, glamour, and money, relationships with depths can be formed.
