The ladies first became friends in 2008 while each dating members of the Jonas Brothers (Taylor dated Joe and Selena dated Nick).
‘It was the best thing we got out of those relationships,’ Gomez told KISS FM UK in 2017.
Swift was also quick to gush over their ‘very precious’ friendship in an earlier interview, saying that the type of supportive relationship they had was rare in Hollywood.
‘When your life changes, and you become thrust into this really strange whirlwind where what your life is is different from what other people think your life is…Both of us have kind of stuck it out and hung in there through all the different changes we’ve gone through.’

The album features 30 tracks with nine previously unreleased songs and collaborators include Ed Sheeran and Phoebe Bridgers.
