It’s no secret Taylor Swift and Katy Perry don’t get along — so fans were shocked when one of Tay's BFFs, Selena Gomez, posed for pictures with the "Fireworks" singer during the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday.
So, should we worry about a feud between the two pals?
“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,” a source tells Hollywood Life.
“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 with because she has dealt with her being with Justin Bieber in the past. She can separate it and is happy to have Selena as her friend.”

Taylor, 26, and Katy, 31, have a long-running feud stemming back to when Taylor accused Katy of trying to “sabotage an entire arena tour” during an interview in September 2014.
“I was like, ‘Oh, we’re just straight-up enemies.’ And it wasn’t even about a guy! It had to do with business. She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me. And I’m surprisingly non-confrontational — you would not believe how much I hate conflict. So now I have to avoid her. It’s awkward, and I don’t like it,” the "Blank Space" singer said at the time.
Katy almost instantly sent this cryptic Twitter message to fans — and though Taylor never named names, this basically confirmed who she was talking about.

Taylor no longer mentions the "Roar" singer, but she is rumored to be the subject of Tay’s jam “Bad Blood.”
“I’m not giving them anything to write about,” she said in March. “But I’m never going to talk about her in my interviews. It’s not going to happen.”
We doubt the 23-year-old “Same Old Love” songstress meant any harm on Taylor’s part!
