Taylor Swift After Selena Gomez: Who Is the New BFF

Taylor Swift After Selena Gomez Who Is the New BFF

After speculation that Taylor Swift moved to New York City after being dropped by Selena Gomez to keep out of the messy limelight that her former pal is now in, the big question on everyone’s mind is who is going to be her new BFF. Auditions are clearly being held as the Internet is full of photos showing the 24 year-old award winning singer/songwriter having a great time since Selena dropped her like a hot rock. Sadly for Gomez, it was all about the “worthiness” of Canadian pop star and “love rat” Justin Bieber who, after Selena made her choice to stay with the singer, repaid his lady love’s devotion by stepping out with one of her new pals, Kendall Jenner.


Of course, Swift already knew that Bieber was not to be trusted in the relationship department. Good old common sense, which many of these young star do not have, would have told Gomez that any lad who spends a lot of time in Brazilian brothels with “sex workers” would not be a good long term prospect for a relationship. Apparently big hearted Taylor has been trying to get in touch with her former BFF but to no avail. Selena has purged herself of all “negative” influences and that includes, apparently, Taylor Swift. In a move that seems to be more about cutting off her nose to spite her face Gomez is shifting direction and starting anew. Which is, coincidentally, just what Swift is doing after being dumped by Selena and moving to the Big Apple. She also seems to be on the lookout for a new BFF.

Outside of the new best buddy hunt by the country/pop singer/songwriter, Swift has done some professional hiring and firing. It has been reported that Taylor has axed her previous, and long serving, PR person Paula Erickson and taken on one Tree Paine to be her new rep. The red headed PR has said that she’s very pleased to be given the opportunity to represent Swift and she has set up a new publicity company, called Premium PR, and she has already gone out on Twitter to tweet angrily at those who dare to write spurious accounts of her new client.

Using the Twitter handle of @treepaine the new publicist is calling out those publications that make it a habit of posting articles that need to be taken either with a bucket load of salt or not at all. Sounds like Taylor has picked a red headed tiger to handle her PR. Leaving the world of publicity behind and looking at how Taylor has handled the sudden “abandon ship” move by Gomez shows that while she may care about friends and loved ones, she also knows when to leave the party without causing a scene. While she obviously had Bieber’s number from the start, she left it up to her former BFF Selena Gomez to make the decision of staying friends with Swift or sticking with the Canadian singer. Sadly, the 21 year-old actress/singer made the wrong choice and after sticking with Justin has had her heart broken. Taylor will now be on the look out for a new BFF and, like Gomez, is starting anew with a different set of pals.

    Michael Smith, you sure don’t let the truth get in the way of a good story do you. You’re nothing more than a purveyor of definitive lies… a hack, an immoral husk of a human being. Tabloid filth!

    Maybe if you didn’t write inaccurate, biased articles you would get some viewers. Where is the evidence that any of this is true such as ‘Bieber was not to be trusted in the relationship department’.

    Taylor stopped seeing Selena after Selena left her 6 week rehab program after only 2 weeks. Selena left against the advice of doctors and rehab counselors. Another friend of Selena’s you haven’t seen since Selena left rehab only 2 weeks into her 6 week program is Demi Lovato. Demi has been through rehab. She was very successful, and she has zero tolerance when it comes to being around someone with addiction problems who refuses help.
    Selena–or possibly her new manager–tried to cover up the truth by saying Selena “ditched” Taylor. Taylor and Demi were kind enough not to speak publicly about Selena’s problems. Selena, in the angry behavior sadly typical of someone with an addiction problem, stabbed Taylor in the back by putting out the ridiculous story implying she ditched Taylor.
    The language Taylor used recently regarding Selena comes straight out of Al-Anon. It is the language rehab specialists use when advising friends and family regarding dealing with them. First, you don’t “enable” them. Second, if the addict refuses help, such as leaving a rehab program 4 weeks early–you have to use “tough love”. In other words, you’ve done what you could do. Now all you can do is stand back and let the addict fall on their faces, if it comes to that. Thus, Taylor says she cares about Selena, but she won’t see her.

    As the previous poster says–Swift has numerous A-list friends. Always has. Her “big sister” role with Selena got a lot of attention because Selena is young Justin Bieber’s girlfriend. The idea Swift needs Selena is plain silly. Taylor and Demi “ditched” Selena, until she gets help with her addiction. The fact that these two young women were both kind enough to try and help Selena is admirable. It’s unfortunate that Selena is far enough into her addiction that she would put a false story about a true friend who was trying to help her. (Sites like TMZ have reported Gomez also has problems with alcohol and Ambien. No one close to Selena have mentioned that, although Bieber said some time ago that Selena’s drinking was the cause of their breaking up at that time.)

      Taylor stopped being Selena’s friend way before that, so she possibly didn’t know about her going to rehab til everyone else did. Demi was still her friend after she left rehab early. And what you said about Selena or her manager putting out false stories about Taylor is not true, since I haven’t seen not one.

    Nope, there are some inaccuracies in your article. Taylor never left it up to Selena to choose between her and Justin. Taylor would never do that. That rumor was started by an infamous webloid which always made up stories while claiming an anonymous source. Selena and Taylor may not hang out much these days, but that is because they are always in different cities. Selena and Taylor were always more like sisters than besties. Each had their own group of friends, while only a relatively few were close to both. Quite frankly, Taylor is increasingly considered a star, not just a music star. Taylor’s world is composed of A listers from music,TV, the stage, and cinema. Taylor’s group of friends are very successful and more mature than Selena’s even if they are young. Hailee Steinfeld and Lorde were child prodigies like Taylor who found success at a very young age. Taylor is not looking for a best friend because she a lot of best friends already. I would say she has about 15 that would fit into the bestie category, including both famous and nonfamous people. Taylor has always made friends easily because she is just a nice person and outgoing, so there are many, many more who are just her friends.
