Bad blood? Eh, not much! Since launching her music career in 2006, Taylor Swift has amassed quite the Rolodex of celebrity friends.
The Grammy winner — who once admitted that “never being popular as a kid was always an insecurity” of hers — aligned herself with the likes of Cara Delevingne, Gigi Hadid and Karlie Kloss in the early 2010s. In more recent years, however, that exclusive squad has evolved as Swift began to surround herself with a more tight-knit group of ride or dies. Some friends have stayed put, while others have drifted away.
In my 20s I found myself surrounded by girls who wanted to be my friend,” the “Shake It Off” singer wrote in a May 2019 Elle essay. “So I shouted it from the rooftops, posted pictures and celebrated my newfound acceptance into a sisterhood, without realizing that other people might still feel the way I did when I felt so alone.” In the same essay, Swift noted the importance of “learning the difference between lifelong friendships” and what she called “situationships.”
