Katy Perry and Selena Gomez were seen mingling with each other at the Golden Globes after party. Now, fans are wondering how their beloved Taylor Swift is holding up, as they support their pop princess on social media.
Katy Perry, 31, and Selena Gomez, 23, were spotted together for the first time in years. The pop stars were hanging out together at the Golden Globes after party on Sunday night, January 10. As everyone knows, Perry is Taylor Swift’s, 26, archenemy, and the subject of her hit song and video, “Bad Blood.”
It’s not clear how Taylor feels about the situation, but it’s clear that her own fans are not too happy. According to the Hollywood Life, they think Selena is betraying her best friend by hanging out with Katy at the Golden Globes. Fans had a meltdown when they saw a photo of the two singers together.
Gomez and Perry were both spotted having a conversation with actor Brad Pitt, which may or may not have something to do with the three stars working on a new project together. Gomez and Pitt previously starred on The Big Short together. Rumors are swirling that the actor was so blown away by Gomez’s performance that he wants her to star in the Ocean’s Eleven remake and turn her in the next “It” girl in Hollywood.
But let’s get back to Taylor Swift’s fans. They immediately freaked out and took to social media when they saw Katy and Selena innocently hanging out together. Selena was first photographed having a conversation with Brad, and shared the photo on Instagram along with the coy caption: “Oh just discussing #TheBigShort.”
Then, Jennifer Aniston’s friend, Derek Blasberg, shared a photo of the three stars on his Instagram, along with the caption: “Last night was the Pitts.” Fans remarked on how Gomez betrayed Swift’s trust and friendship.
But Selena has said on the New Zealand radio show The Edge Afternoons that she’s good friends with Katy Perry. The “Same Old Love” singer was then asked if it was true that she spoke to Katy about her cameo the “Bad Blood” video.
“That’s false, I love Katy. I just talked to her. She’s amazing. But I didn’t talk about that, but I just talked to her. She’s awesome.”
And back in March, 2014, when Selena first made romance rumors with 1D’s Niall Horan, the two were spotted together at Katy Perry’s Prismatic concert.
There have also been rumors swirling that Katy Perry has been Selena Gomez’s mentor for her own pop career. Prior to releasing her latest album, Revival, Gomez hired Perry’s manager after firing her own parents. An inside source to the Hollywood Life revealed that Perry has even become Gomez’s mentor.
“Katy has been helping Selena, she’s doing everything she can to help her right now as far as being a shoulder to cry on, someone to talk to that will understand. She’s like a big sister to her, a nonjudgemental big sister. Katy doesn’t push her opinions on Selena, but whenever Selena needs her, she is there for her.”
The reason why she has turned to Perry instead of Swift for advice is that she believes Perry has more life experience under her belt, according to the insider.
“Katy has a lot of life experience as far as fame and relationships and dealing with players. Compared to Russell Brand or John Mayer, Justin is still a kid. Those guys are real womanizers so Katy knows exactly what Selena is dealing with.”
Hopefully, Taylor Swift doesn’t mind that her former friend and her current friend become besties. What are your thoughts on Selena Gomez and Katy Perry hanging out together at the Golden Globes? Do you think Gomez is betraying Swift? Sound off below in the comments section.
