Gomez posted a pair of pictures on Instagram, pointing out in the caption that Swift is perpetually at the top of her game.

“Thas my best frien -she a real bad,” Gomez wrote in a sweet Instagram update. The frame-worthy snapshots showed them enjoying time together by the sea, with smiles and kisses on cheeks. The photos were likely taken at Swift’s 4th of July party with her “neighborhood independent girlies,” including Gomez and Haim, since she’s wearing the same (now sold-out) Christy Dawn sundress in each set of pics.
The “Single Soon” singer was likely quoting a line from Saweetie‘s feel-good ‘Best Friend’ feat. Doja Cat, which reached No. 14 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2021, spending 30 weeks total on the chart. “Best Friend” has the two complimenting one another’s self-reliance, wealth and beauty in its verses: “I’ma hype her every time, that my motherf—in’ friend.”
Gomez shared another picture with best friend Swift earlier in the week from the MTV VMAs, dryly commenting in an Instagram Story, “She looks stunning, I look constipated. Typical.”
Both VMA winners served meme-worthy moments and reactions caught on camera during the awards ceremony — one of MTV’s audience cams seemed stuck on Swift with a drink in hand throughout — though Gomez might not have been that amused by the chatter concerning her expressions. “I will never be a meme again,” she wrote in an Instagram Story after the show. “I’d rather sit still than be dragged for being myself. Much love.”
