Taylor Swift is opening up about her friendship with pop star Selena Gomez.  The singer tells "E! News" that she still considers Selena one of her closest confidantes. 

Taylor describes the friendship as "the longest one either of [them] has" and says she values the fact that they've "stuck it out and hung in there through all the different changes [they've] gone through." 

She also seemed to address the long-running rumors that she doesn't support Selena's on again-off again romance with Justin Bieber.  Taylor says she and Selena have both been "thrust into this really strange whirlwind" where their lives are "written about and fictionalized."  

The two were spotted hanging out together at the Met Gala in New York last week putting an end to rumors that they had had a falling out over Selena's relationship with Bieber.
