Selena Gomez shared a rare public message to Taylor Swift after attending her Eras tour concert

Selena Gomez has joined the growing number of celebrities who attended her longtime close friend Taylor Swift’s Eras tour and shared her experience on Instagram. Gomez shared a heartwarming tribute to Swift after attending the Arlington, Texas, show on Saturday night, writing, “Thank you, my best friend, for transporting me and my sissy to your mystical, euphoric world and special to know you! I love you forever and always.’

Gomez attended the concert with her nine-year-old sister Gracie Elliot Teefey. Gomez and Gracie dressed like different eras of Swift’s career. Gomez opted for the Folklore era, wearing Swift’s cardigan. She also chose to recreate Swift’s beauty look with the help of a professional.

Dallas, Texas makeup artist Kristen Farrah posted a glamorous photo of Gomez before the show, showing off the work she did to help Swift recreate Swift’s aesthetic. Farrah wrote: “I don’t know what’s more iconic, @selenagomez wearing @taylorswift’s folk cardigan look or me having to do her makeup 😭💖💘 What an honor to meet this kind soul.” Using my blush @ rarebeauty favorite over Selena was truly a full circle moment 🤍’

This is the second tribute Gomez has paid to Swift in the past week. At the iHeartRadio Music Awards in late March, Gomez appeared in a celebrity montage honoring Swift for winning the ceremony’s Innovator Award. In it, Gomez said: “She can portray what she’s going through so well.” She is a model. I don’t think it’s something you sign up for; I just think it’s something that you have intrinsically within you, and I think that’s Taylor.

Swift and Gomez have been close friends since 2008, when they each dated a Jonas Brother (Swift with Joe Jonas and Gomez with Nick Jonas). Although they keep their friendship largely private, they occasionally give a public glimpse together. During Gomez’s 30th birthday last July, for example, Gomez posted a photo of them celebrating:
