Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift are often inseparable–meaning the two must have plenty of time to talk about plenty of things other than just boys and high profile relationships, right?


Taylor Swift, 24, has had the epitome of a scrutinized dating life. The singer-songwriter has gotten more media attention, as far as relationships go, than Miley Cyrus had gotten for sexually assaulting a foam finger. Ok, maybe not that much.

Truth of the matter is, Swift is an icon, a role model. Millions of girls from around the world look up to her and listen to her music for inspiration, or because they are searching for relationship advice. And let’s be honest, sometimes it just feels good to Shake It Off.

But when you have a high-profile off-and-on relationship with clowns like Justin Bieber as Selena Gomez has, sometimes you need more than a track to listen to–you go straight to the source.

On The Talk, 22-year-old Selena was “talking” about how the two girls were at Gomez’s house discussing life and relationships, and Taylor just looked at her and said, “Selena, if you’re the smartest person in the room, I think you’re going to be in the wrong room.” Taylor went on to say that in order to become a better person, you must surround yourself with people that are better than you–which also pertains to her dating life.

Not bad advice.

Selena says that she has taken Swift’s advice, and now has a new outlook on things. If Taylor’s music career doesn’t work out, which is highly unlikely, maybe she can open up a couples therapy business.
