Selena Gomez Praises Taylor Swift, Shares Important Life Advice

by at .

Selena Gomez is making the talk show rounds these days.

Last week on Ellen, the singer talked about owning her own home, walking around naked and trying to be the best Selena Gomez she can be.

Appearing on The Talk Friday, meanwhile, the artist shifted her focus to her very famous best friend: Taylor Swift.

"She was actually at my house the other day and we were sitting by the fire and I was talking about relationships and business in my life, Selena explained, continuing:

"And she just kind of looked at me and was like, ‘Selena, if you're the smartest person in the room, I think you're going to be in the wrong room.' She thinks I should constantly surround myself with people who are going to make me better, that are going to challenge and motivate me."

The audience applauded at this line, as Gomez concluded: "It kind of stuck to me. I want to surround myself with those people."

There's been chatter in the past, of course, that Swit does not approve of Selena dating Justin Bieber.

Remember the infamous reaction backstage at last year's Billboard Music Awards? When Swift appeared to be grossed out over Gomez pecking Bieber?

That topic wasn't broached specifically on The Talk, but Selena did say overall of Taylor:

"She supports me and never judges me for anything."

That is very good to hear. It's nice to know these two are best friends forever and ever.
