Selena Gomez Compliments BFF Taylor Swift As One of the 'Greatest Songwriters'

Selena Gomez opened up about what she’s listening to during quarantine in a new interview with Apple Music.

Chatting with Zane Lowe, the 27-year-old singer dished on the songs she included on her “At Home With Selena Gomez” playlist and the reasons why.

One song on the playlist is Taylor Swift‘s “Lover”.

“There’s nothing really to say other than this is another song that shows her ability to take it back to the old, to also combine it with her challenging to do new things with her music,” Selena shared of the track.

She added that “I think that’s as pure that- I’ll always, not even biased, just think she is one of the greatest songwriters.”

“I guess this quarantine has given me time to just listen to all kinds of music,” Selena went on to say about the playlist, which includes a lot of storytelling songs. “This was more last minute, but as I was going through it, I realized that it does kinda have a reoccurring theme.”

She adds, “There’s so much storytelling in each of these songs. I sat back and I was like, that’s so interesting, because I have these pivotal songs that leave me in this trance and inspire me to then listen to other type of music…It’s about lyrics, strong lyrics, a lot of love and pain and then there’s just some party songs that just make me feel like I’m a kid again.”
