It’s hard to imagine a time when Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift weren’t friends, but once upon a time this was just the case.

Rewind your mind back to 2008, it was a pretty huge year. ‘Juno’ and ‘Ratatouille’ both won Oscars, Katy Perry’s ‘I Kissed A Girl’ was in the charts, Selena Gomez was dating Nick Jonas and Taylor Swift was dating Joe Jonas.

Although neither relationship made it to 2009, Selena and Taylor struck up a friendship that has definitely stood the test of time and according to Selena it’s become the “best thing” to come out of the short lived relationships.

“We actually dated the Jonas brothers together! It was hysterical,” Selena said in an interview with KISS FM.

“It was amazing, because she was the girl with the big curly hair and all the bracelets and the cowboy boots. And I was definitely up-and-coming, and we just clicked. It was the best thing we got out of those relationships.”

Selena also added that she’d be willing to duet with Taylor ‘anytime, any place’ and that Taylor ‘has been a fighter, a warrior, and a friend through all of this.’

Right, you’ve said it now Selena, we’re counting on a duet for 2018!
