It’s no surprise that Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift have been the best of friends. And recently, Selena revealed that Taylor got very emotional when she heard Lose You to Love Me for the first time. While speaking during an appearance on UK’s radio show at KISS FM, the singer spoke about sharing her new music with her close friends and family. She named that Taylor was her “go-to” friend when it came to previewing new music, adding that Taylor cried when she heard her latest song.
Selena said, “I’ll never forget when I did play the video for Lose You to Love Me and looking at her. It was one of the coolest experiences because I’ve been friends with her for over a decade.” The singer continued that she played the song for Taylor and her parents, which is when Taylor and Selena’s mother, Andrea broke down in tears. The singer continued, “It’s going to make me cry thinking about it because it wasn’t about just how great the song was … it was just that they had been on that journey with me intimately. They were crying because how proud they were for me stepping into a whole new era of my life.” Earlier this year, Taylor – while stopping by Apple Music’s Beats 1, shared that she Lose You to Love Me was the best music that Selena had made.
Taylor had said, “I’m so proud of her. She’s been through so much. I’ve watched so much happen in her life and had a front-row seat to so much, and I’m so proud of her. She is such a revelation because now she’s making her best stuff. I am 100% convinced this is the best thing she’s done so far. Just from my perspective as her friend, I’ve just never been more proud. I’m really excited because when somebody has had great life experience, has had really tough things they’ve had to go through, and they can process that and make art that’s going to help other people - that’s what kind of song this is.”
