Los Angeles | Amid her ongoing feud with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, pop star Taylor Swift returned to Instagram to wish her longtime friend Selena Gomez a happy 24th birthday. She uploaded a throwback picture of her and Selena making a heart shape with their hands.
She captioned it, Going through old pictures today, because @selenagomez just turned 24! I can’t imagine my life without you, Selena. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! This has marked Taylor’s first Instagram post since she responded to the leak of her phone conversation with Kanye to discuss the lyrics on his Famous.
After Kim posted the recording on her Snapchat last weekend, the 26-year-old diva issued a statement in which she insisted that she never heard the full song. Selena was one of the first people coming to Taylor’s defense at the time, taking to Twitter to express her disappointment over celebrities who used their voice for something unimportant.
There are more important things to talk about… Why can’t people use their voice for something that matters? she wrote. However, she ended up being criticized by some of her fans who noticed that she herself hadn’t used her voice to speak out about various tragedies that had happened in the past few months.
