Selena Gomez has described Taylor Swift as "an incredible inspiration".
The 'Good For You' singer has gushed about her best friend and insisted they are always extremely supportive of each other, which led to Taylor crying at the American Music Awards last year because she was "so proud" of her pal's emotional performance.
She explained: "Taylor's just been such an incredible inspiration and she's just like one of my biggest supporters and I don't think people know that as much as they think that she is.
"She has always wanted to see me find what makes me different and never forced her opinion too much; she would just tell me what she believed and what she thinks I should do and I've known her for eight years!
"So it's something that we've always kind of been in tune with and at the AMAs when I performed 'The Heart Wants What It Wants' she was like sobbing backstage and she's like, 'I'm so proud of you, that was everything I always wanted people to see about you', and it's just like really cool. She's incredible."
The 23-year-old singer recently finished working on her new album 'Revival', due later this year, but revealed Chris Brown got in touch once it was complete so they couldn't record together.
However, she did tease they may still collaborate at a later date.
Speaking to Manchester's Key 103 radio station, she added: "Well it's funny, we actually just kind of recently got in touch. So the album is done
"I'm such a huge Chris Brown fan. He's known that. I've known him throughout the years but if there's an opportunity for us to do something later, of course because he's so... I think he's so talented, you know?"
