Selena Gomez calls BFF Taylor Swift one of the greatest songwriters

Selena Gomez gushed over Taylor Swift's songwriting skills during her interview with Apple Music, where she walked through the songs she included on her At Home With Selena Gomez playlist for the popular streaming service. Among them was the Grammy winner's hit song Lover, which Gomez believes perfectly encapsulates her evolving style of music. "I mean, again, from the beginning, so 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," she said of her longtime friend. "So I think that's as pure that – I'll always, not even biased, just think she is one of the greatest songwriters." As for the overall vibe of her playlist, the Rare singer shared that she's been gravitating towards storytelling songs from her favourite artists and real-life besties like Julia Michaels and Kacey Musgraves. "I guess this quarantine has given me time to just listen to all kinds of music," Gomez explained. "This was more last minute, but I realised that it does kinda have a reoccurring theme. There's so much storytelling in each of these songs." When it comes to her all-time favourite musician, that title goes to Rihanna: "All I'm going to say is, I've been a Rihanna fan,” Gomez shared.
