Everybody breathe. Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez totally got back together.
Some background, for those who are adults (but inexplicably care about this stuff anyway): For weeks, your niece has been devastated over rumors that the cover stars of BFF Magazine were fighting. It all began last month after Coachella, when Gomez unfollowed a bunch of people on Instagram – including Taylor Swift. No one knows exactly what caused the shut-out. (Ugh. It was probably Justin Bieber-related. Sure, Taylor may have known he was trouble when he walked in – but when your friends make bad dating choices, you have to let them be. Or just write a song about it.)
But! Now Swift and Gomez are ready to prove they love each other like a love song once again. On Monday, both attended the Met Gala – such a teenage dream – and Gomez uploaded the video below to her Instagram account, along with this message: “Sometimes you wanna just be you with someone who knows all your secrets.” Cue the music, pretty dresses, and twirling – it’s a regular Taylor Swift chorus up in here.
For what it’s worth: Gomez still isn’t following Taylor Swift on Instagram. Maybe she got sick of all the cat photos. Or maybe – just maybe! – scrutinizing Instagram followers isn’t the best way to judge friendship.
