Following the lipped “Shut the F*** Up” heard ‘round all five New York City boroughs and the rest of the continent, Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez continue to be two peas in a pod.
During the L.A. premiere of Getaway starring Ethan Hawke, Selena was asked what her BFF really said during the televised moment that became an instant meme by the VMA’s half-hour mark.
“Why don’t you ask Taylor,” she said cheekily to E! News when asked about the incident. “I’m going to stick up for my best friend. Don’t try that with me.”
Whether or not Taylor said the expletive (in the direction of her ex Harry Styles) or “sorry about my arm” as some other outlets have suggested, one thing is clear: These two are a united front.
Selena did speak openly on other VMA-related topics. On Lady Gaga, she said she “actually loved” the “very artsy, very cool” performance. When *NSYNC reunited, she “I mean, completely” lost her mind, and apparently she has an undeniable crush on Drake. “Drake’s always nice to look at so that was nice.”
