Selena Gomez: How
Taylor Swift is
Helping Me Through My
Fresh out of a breakup from Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez is relying on the one person she trusts most to get her through—Taylor Swift.
"We both experienced the same things at the same time," Selena told NYLON Magazine of her best friend. "But we've never once talked about our industry. She just became the person I'd go to for an issue with my family or boyfriend.”

Around the same time Selena split from her 2-year boyfriend, pop star Justin Bieber, Taylor was calling it quits with her beau of two months, One Direction singer, Harry Styles.
And while it’s likely Taylor took her breakup frustrations out in the recording studio (she’s famous for writing songs about her exes), Selena says she’s doing just fine with her newfound single status.
"I'm having fun," the 20-year-old starlet admits. "At the end of the day, love is such a normal thing, and everyone deals with it. Just because it's a different lifestyle doesn't change the meaning of what I've been raised on, which is fairy tales."
And Taylor knows a thing or two about that, as well.

"It can be heartbreaking when you find out that your fairytale image of the world doesn't match the reality,” the country crooner said earlier this month. "I think you need to believe in the fairy tale otherwise you become cynical and close yourself off to love because you stop trusting those incredible feelings that come over you at the beginning."
While the two young starlets lean on each other after their recent splits, Selena knows that through all of the hell and heartbreak, Taylor will be there. “It's so hard to trust girls," she admits of Taylor, "so I'm lucky to have her."
