Taylor Swift: My friends will never use me
Taylor Swift's friends will never use her.
The 'Blank Space' hitmaker is adamant her close group of pals - which include Gigi Hadid, Karlie Kloss and Selena Gomez - will never use their friendship with the superstar to help their own "social climbing".
She said: "I think one of my main goals in trying to preserve my sense of reality has been to surround myself with friends who have their own careers, and who don't need me for any sense of validation or social climbing, or a career statement."
The 25-year-old singer also revealed she asks her friends for advice on her music and really "respects" their opinions.
She added to Australia's Vogue magazine: "My friends have all solidified themselves in their own careers and so if they think that I shouldn't put out a certain single as a first single, they're going to tell me: 'That wasn't one of my favourites that you've played me Taylor,' and I'm going to respect that opinion."
Meanwhile, Taylor previously insisted she has no problem with any of her friends dating her exes as "sisterhood" is far more important than her former flames.
She explained: "It's almost like the sisterhood has such a higher place on the list of priorities for us. It's so much more important than some guy that it didn't work out with.
"Now more than ever we need to be good and kind to each other and not judge each other - and just because you have the same taste in men, we don't hold that against each other."
