Taylor Swift talks about her friendship with Gigi Hadid
In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar Taylor said Gigi is the first person she goes to when she needs advice.
She said: “She has this incredible ability to see all sides of a situation and simplify it for you, to see the complexity of people. Gigi’s number one rule is to treat people the way she’d want to be treated, so she’s on time (or early) to work, says hello to everyone on set, asks them how they are, and actually listens to their response.
“She is an innately kind and inclusive person who has managed to become a huge power player and businesswoman without ever compromising that.”

As well as BFFs, Gigi is a huge fan of Taylor, admitting to Variety she loved the singer’s music growing up.
She said: “An amazing thing about my friendship with Taylor has been that she is a songwriter that I've connected to through my childhood into my adult life, and becoming friends has given me an insight into the mind that creates those lyrics. She writes words that people experience but can't put into words themselves.”
Gigi also confessed to attending 10 of Taylor’s concerts on the '1989' and 'Reputation' tours for free.

Gigi gives an insight into Taylor's 'dinner parties'
Gigi opened up on bestie Taylor's dinner parties, calling her an 'exceptional cook' and revealing their evenings together are always 'special' moments.
She told InStyle on 11th April: "Taylor Swift is an exceptional cook, and I love her. She also makes a really good bolognese sauce and a really good chilli that I love.
"So, I love to cook, but it’s also such a treat to get cooked for. And when you have friends that really also care about those special moments and the more intimate spaces and what can really come from putting an effort into making the time for that, I think that that’s when you start to find the friends that you really connect with, because you’re both working towards manifesting those really special moments.”
