Selena Gomez is supportive of best friend, American singer/songwriter Taylor Swift's relationship with Scottish singer/DJ Calvin Harris. The former Disney star gushed about the 31-year-old music producer during her appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

During the interview, the Oscar host said that the 23-year-old actress should get the Bad Blood hitmaker's help for dating. Gomez said: "Hey, she's with a stud now!"

"It's weird because I don't know if I want someone who's in the industry. Who's not. Who kind of gets it. Who doesn't. I don't know. It's weird," Justin Bieber's former girlfriend added.

Swift has been in a relationship with Rita Ora's former boyfriend since April 2015. The Red singer kissed Harris during the Billboard Music Awards 2015, held at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas on 17 May, confirming their relationship.

It was previously reported that Harris is considering approaching Swift's father to seek approval for their marriage. Responding to the reports, Harry Styles' former girlfriend tweeted: "What the press says I'm doing: Buying a Bev Hills mansion, getting married in an English castle. What I'm doing: Playing a show in St. Louis."

During an interview with NME magazine, the 25-year-old Shake It Off singer revealed she will take a break from music after the 1989 tour wraps up in December. Swift said: "I think I should take some time off. I think people might need a break from me. I'm going to... I don't know. Hang out with my friends. Write new music. Maybe not write new music. I don't know."
