Taylor Swift’s fans weren’t happy when Selena Gomez was spotted hanging out with Katy Perry at a Golden Globes after party. Some also assumed that the blonde pop star wasn’t pleased to hear the shocking news either.
But Taylor Swift, 26, and Selena Gomez, 23, squashed those feuding rumors when they shared a photo of themselves on Friday, Jan. 15. In the new photos posted on both Gomez and Swift’s Instagram pages, the singers are seen peeking out from a bush with an expression on their faces.
Taylor captioned the clever photo: “Are we out of the woods yet?” It’s a nod to the new music video for her single “Out of the Woods,” which shows the country-turned-pop star battling with wolves and extreme environmental conditions in a forest.
Gomez’s photo showed the girls laughing while they were they taking the photo. “Are we in the clear yet?” the “Hands to Myself” singer captioned the cute photo.
Just last week, the sultry brunette singer was spotted mingling with Katy Perry at the Golden Globes on Sunday, Jan. 10. Fans were shocked to see the two spotted together, since it’s no secret that Taylor and Katy don’t get along. But an insider told the Hollywood Life that Swift wasn’t upset with Selena for hanging out with her archenemy.
“During the Globes, photographers pair people together. The celebs are also usually put together in VIP sections to stay away from other partygoers, so they are given some type of space. Whomever you hang out with and see is sometimes forced on you and often uncontrollable.
“Taylor knows that Selena and Katy’s conversation wasn’t about her, so she is not thinking of it as any type of shade. Taylor is not bothered or disturbed with who Selena is hanging out with because she has dealt with her being with Justin Bieber in the past. She can separate it and be happy to have Selena as her friend.”
That’s very mature of the “Bad Blood” singer. According to another source, Gomez knows that she has nothing to do with her friend’s feud with the “Dark Horse” singer.
Taylor no longer mentions you-know-who. In March, 2015, she revealed that she no longer wants to mention Katy’s name or talk about their alleged feud in future interviews. Since then, it seems like their feud has settled down – but according to the new issue of OK! Magazine, there is a slim chance that the pop tarts will set their differences aside.
According to Celebrity Dirty Laundry, Swift did her best by clearing the air about her feud with Perry. In her recent cover story for GQ, Swift desperately tried to explain the meaning of the “Bad Blood” video by claiming that it was about an ex-boyfriend rather than a friend.
No one has bought Taylor Swift’s new revised story about “Bad Blood” – and neither have her fans, or Katy Perry. According to OK! Magazine’s alleged inside sources, the feud between Taylor Swift and Katy Perry is still going strong behind closed doors. The insider also claims that Katy’s team does not want to mention Taylor’s name, nor do they try to acknowledge her existence. According to Katy, Taylor’s half-hearted apology and denial was enough to warrant Katy’s forgiveness.
The two are also feuding over their hot careers. Taylor Swift was just named the most marketable musician among young Americans by a British-based company called Repucom. Swift topped the list with a Celebrity Davie Brown Index (DBI) of 88.5 while Perry earned a DBI of 85.1. But Perry was the highest-earning paid women in music in the year 2015 when she made $135 million from June, 2014, to June, 2015, thanks in part to her Prismatic World Tour.
It’s good to know that Taylor and Selena are still good friends, no matter the complications within their inner circle of friends.
