Selena Gomez Supports BFF Taylor Swift in Her Music Battle
Taylor Swift is picking up the 2019 Artist of the Decade Award at the American Music Awards and longtime BFF Gomez will be showing her support for Swift, according to E! News.
Gomez has also been supporting her friend Swift in other ways, as she has been involved in a battle over the rights to her old music with Scooter Braun and Scott Borchetta. Leading up to the AMAs, there was controversy over whether or not Swift would be able to perform a medley of her hits for the awards show and Gomez came to her defense.
E! News reported that before it was announced that Swift would be able to perform the medley of music she wanted, Gomez released the following statement, “My heart is so heavy right now. It makes me sick and extremely angry. (I don’t mind if there may be retaliation) this is my opinion. It’s greed, manipulation and power. There is no heart or thought of anyone else’s. No respect for the words my friend has written since she was a 14 year old in her bedroom. You’ve robbed and crushed one of our best song writers of our time an opportunity to celebrate all of her music with fans and the world.”
“I really hope there is a change of heart over this unfortunate situation. Seeing my best friend (or any of my friends) be constantly pulled down is the worst feeling. Taylor fights. She will never stop fighting … I just want a change of heart. I love you,” she continued.
