American country music singer Taylor Swift has put Selena Gomez fight rumours to rest by opening up about how the two are still close.

The 24-year-old Red singer talked about the former Disney star during an interview with E! News when she was at her Keds event at The Americana at Brand event on 9 May.

"It's been the longest one I think either of us had really," she said. "When your life changes and you become thrust into this really strange whirlwind where what your life is is different from what other people think your life is. And your life is commented on and your life is written about and fictionalized and all that. Both of us have kind of stuck it out and hung in there through all the different changes we've gone through."

"Longevity is something you really can find very precious and rare in friendships," Swift added.

Previously it was reported that Swift was not happy with Gomez rekindling her relationship with Canadian pop star Justin Bieber, which caused a rift between them.

However, Gomez and Swift reunited at the 2014 Met Gala held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on 5 May in New York City.

The 21-year-old Come and Get It singer posted an Instagram video of the two dancing together at the event.

"And during...sometimes you wanna just be you with someone who knows all your secrets," she captioned the clip.
