When the whole wide word calls themselves #squadgoals…what is truly “goals” anymore?
Even in the realm of celebrities, it is no surprise that fierce competition exists amongst stars to forge the most fearsome and formidable clique in Hollywood. Which celebrity squad comes to mind besides everyone’s favourite – Taylor Swift Squad !!
The “Bad Blood” mv is the living, breathing definition of Taylor Swift squad goals, as the entire crew launches into kickass, girl power action!! T-Swizzle draws her ace card and shows us how it’s REALLY done.
(Can I join please…)
(1) Gigi Hadid
This Victoria Secret model is famed for her hot bod, killer fashion sense and sexy (EX) man-candy – Zayn Malik. The first public evidence of Gigi and Taylor’s blossoming friendship was when Swift photobombed her and Karlie Kloss’s picture on the red carpet at a pre-Oscars party in 2014. You would think their shared past of dating Joe Jonas would make their friendship awkward …to say the least. But these girls are WAYYY above such petty issues (chicks over dicks am I right)
In recent news, both had announced their break-ups with Calvin Harris & Zayn Malik respectively within the same week. Nothing spells B-F-Fs like synchronized break-ups! ;)
(2) Martha Hunt
Likewise, Martha Hunt is another Victoria Secret Angel as well. Her fame may not be as overpowering as Gigi but her name does ring a few bells here and there. Especially after being one of the newest additions to Swift’s ever-growing squad, her popularity has indeed spiked.
(3) Selena Gomez
This singer slash actress is globally recognised for being Disney’s sweetheart that rose to fame from her leading role in “Wizards of Waverly Place”, as well as, her chart topping singles like “Good For You” and “Same Old Love”.
I absolutely LOVE this pair!! Selena and Taylor met back stage at a Jonas Brothers concert ages ago. Their friendship stemmed from their coincidental and simultaneous dating of the Jonas Brothers - Selena & Nick and Taylor & Joe Jonas. It was reported that Taylor often flew out to hang with Selena when she was experiencing a lot of trials. They even had some form of GNO tradition amongst single friends to stuff their faces with cake and junk food!!! Truly BFFs.
Lorde, a New Zealand singer-songwriter that skyrocketed to instant fame when she released her debut single “Royals”. This adorable pair met in the most unconventional way possible! Surprisingly, everything started off with an insult. Earlier in 2013, Lorde publicly dissed Taylor for being “too flawless and unattainable”. Ohhhh Snapppp…
But the Pop star sensation took it in her stride and responded coolly: “It's fine. If all you've done is call someone perfect, it's not that bad”. Taylor even went the extra mile of sending Lorde flowers to congratulate her chart topping success, which ultimately, won the gothic singer over :)
(5) Cara Delevingne
I can’t seem to recall the day when Cara Delevingne WASN’T in the spotlight…This British fashion model and actress is everywhere now. From runways to billboards to movie screens, Cara kills it all. So its no surprise when Taylor brought her on board the T-Swift squad. Their first meeting was reportedly at the U.S. Ambassador’s house with Ed Sheeran alongside.
Similar to Gigi, Cara is another BFF that dated her one of her exes - Harry Styles. Maybe it’s the mutual shade that brought them closer together? Who knows…
(6) Karlie Kloss
Karlie Kloss is an American fashion model; Vogue Paris had even crowned her as the top 30 models of the 2000s. They reportedly first made conversation in Feb 2012 when T-Swift was the covergirl of US Vogue when Swift said “I love Karlie Kloss…I want to bake cookies with her!” HAHA so cute!!
Their friendship officially kicked off in Nov 2013 when Swift performed at the annual VS show. They have been besties for 4 years already!!
(7) Lena Dunham
Finally, lets take a break from singers and models. Another one of Taylor’s best friends is Lena Dunham – a multi-talented individual that acts, writes, produces and even directs!! Lena is recognised for being the creator, writer and star of the HBO series ‘Girls’. (Taylor sure knows how to choose her friends…)
Like every other relationship in the 21st century, this duo has the Internet to thank for their adorable friendship that bloomed since 2012!! It all started when Lena tweeted praises about Taylor that led to exchange of tweets and DMs. Anddd then, the rest was history!!!
