Selena Gomez Apparently Isn’t Ready To Make Up With Taylor Swift, Which Is Actually Really Disappointing

Even if you’re a Taylor Swift hater, it’s hard to feel smug about Selena Gomez allegedly breaking up with her. It’s tempting, no lie, but it’s ultimately really hard. After reading the newest reports about Selena apparently not wanting to be friends with Taylor even though Taylor’s trying to be a part of her life, I find myself surprisingly disappointed. Why can’t these crazy kids work things out?

Selena unfollowed Taylor (and everyone else) on Instagram earlier this month, and she supposedly wanted to get rid of “negative influences” in her life. According to an obviously very reliable anonymous source, Taylor wants to make up with Selena, but Selena’s not having it:

“Taylor has reached out to Selena a couple of times, but Selena isn’t ready to be friends with her again. When Taylor heard she was going through a tough time, and stopped following all her friends on Instagram, she called her and emailed her, but Selena is not in the mood.”

Taylor and Selena are thought to have feuded over Selena’s troubling reunion with her ex-boyfriend/current demon Justin Bieber. Taylor’s made it abundantly clear that she disapproves of Bieber. She hasn’t always been the most mature about it, but I have to give her credit for her taste. Basically anyone who dislikes Justin Bieber has good taste in my book. I used to want Selena to part ways with both Bieber and Taylor, but nowadays I’m thinking a friendship with Taylor, while it comes with some annoying award show dancing, wouldn’t be a bad thing.

Something not very good seems to be happening with Selena lately. Between her rehab stay, her reunions with Bieber, firing her parents, posting angsty and/or half-naked Instagram photos, and hanging out with questionable people, things are looking pretty worrying. If the reports are true and Taylor really is “truly concerned,” she seems to be one of Selena’s best options at this time in her life. She’s certainly better than either Bieber or the Jenner girls. And she bakes things, which is nice.

      But Selena never unfollowed Taylor. They are real life friends not some cyberfriends. Not buying their feud stories. Gonna cackle so hard when one of them calls out this BS.

      Selena hasn’t been seen publicly with Taylor Swift or Demi Lovato since right before she went into treatment. She was really close to them up until then. When the treatment story came out the story was that her family and some close friends told Selena about their concerns they had for her. That’s when she agreed to go into treatment. Then she left her six week program four weeks early, and no Demi or Taylor sightings with her ever since.

      I don’t get what it is that teenage girls who are Disney stars have problems when they become young women. That’s why I’ve been following this story. Is it possible that someone who seemed as ok as Selena is having problems now? If she’s totally into the party life and doesn’t want to stop no one can do anything. If she’s having problems and is isolating herself I think an old friend like Taylor Swift is someone she should let in. Taylor seems like a really caring person. She may seem sunshiny but I think she’s smart and has been in the music business for a lot of years and has heard it all, so i don’t think she will hold grudges or judge Selena in any way. So yeah. Pick up the phone, Selena.

        You are trying to compare your life to “teenage girls who are Disney stars,” (by that I assume you mean also other teen girls/boys in showbiz, as issues arent confined to Dis), and your life couldn’t be more different from theirs than if they were Martians. They begin working in a highly competitive environment, live in a fishbowl of scrutiny, with people judging every word, deed, and dodge paparazzi in their backyard, at the most formative time of their lives. They are beloved by millions, making tons of money, and then they commit the ultimate sin-they grow up and aren’t 2001 Britney or Clarissa or Hannah, or Baby era J Biebs, anymore. They then have to figure out how to be adults with adult careers, adult fans, and still not offend these kiddie fans or their idiot unrealistic parents. Her career has bottomed out, as far as growing with her, her fans aren’t, her movie career, tv career, nothing has had success other than kid friendly material. Add in they don’t know who they can trust, who to date, don’t have a formal education…how’s that, off the top of my head? Also, just because you think Taylor S is just awesome and smart, because that’s what you’re allowed to see, doesn’t make it so. The business is all about constructing an image. Some are better than others about keeping that faux persona.

        I’m sorry, either you didn’t understand my intent, or I didn’t express myself very well. I did have to laugh when you said I must be comparing my life to Disney girls, though!
        I should make myself very clear this time. I don’t blame any of these girls whatever! I never would. They live the pressure cooker lives that they do starting at a very young age, working as hard as adults, and especially when they’re teens, 24/7 media scrutiny, especially by awful Internet gossip sites. HollywoodLife is one of the worst I’ve seen. So many of these sites just say “a close source say…” Most often followed by fiction. i think probably 20 years ago someone could get mad at a bad sound system and say the “F” word, and it would never be noticed. But now someone Selena like Selena gets mad and it’s like, a crime.
        My whole thing was–it seems girls who were on Disney shows have the hardest time. Demi, Britney etc. so is there too much pressure put on girls there to be perfect. (They’re probably already perfectionists) kids in movies don’t have to be “on” 24/7 etc So I think it’s too bad Selena is having problems now, and ai hope things work out. And she’s been

        I couldn’t finish my comment. I was going to say:
        And she’s been best friends for several years with Taylor Swift, so I hope they talk. I’m perplexed by how you can be critical of Swift but defend Disney kids? You apparently are coming from a place of no knowledge about her. I follow the music world and I’ve never read a bad word about Swift from anyone who’s ever met or known her. Her public persona is the same as she is in private. Example–I recently bookmarked a long interview with noted songwriter Dan Wilson that I have right here, it was in AVClub.com “Dan Wilson on Semisonic, Adele, and the Sincerity of Taylor Swift”. He discusses songwriters he’s worked with. Swift? What you see is what you get. She is that girl, nice, down to earth. Even her surprise face is real. And what some clueless laypeople don’t get–she is a “monster songwriter”. She is highly respected as a songwriter. It’s funny how some people can’t accept or get that a pretty young woman can be a powerhouse songwriter. I’ve heard her described as a force of nature when it comes to songwriting.
