Gossip Girl star Chace Crawford gave Taylor Swift a "pep talk" the day after she was ambushed by Kanye West at the MTV VMAs, a source reports.
What are friends who want to get in your pants for?
At the Kings of Leon concert in New York Monday night, Crawford spotted her and gave her a huge hug, telling Taylor Swift, "I'm so proud of you."
"Don't let anyone ever take your spotlight ever again."
She thanked Crawford, who, the source says, is "like an older brother type and is very protective over her" (although Taylor Swift once told Your Prom magazine that the Gossip Girl star was her "celeb dream date" for prom).
Chace Crawford supports Taylor Swift. And man-bangs.
Besides Chace, Swift's other pals chipped in on the pep talk front in the aftermath of Kanye's VMA meltdown, which the Prez even called him out on.
After the show, the Best Female Video went to dinner at Del Frisco's at midnight to meet a group and received a standing ovation, an insider says.
"Taylor's friends ordered her favorite dish, macaroni and cheese, to cheer her up," the source adds. "And nobody brought up Kanye West."
We're glad Chace started this trend. It makes us wonder ...
Should Taylor Swift and Chace Crawford date?
