Gomez and Swift enjoy girls' night
Selena Gomez has enjoyed a girls' night in with her best friend Taylor Swift, where the pair danced, sang and ate cakes.
The singer-and-actress shares a close bond with the country music star. They rely on each other to understand the pressures of living in the spotlight from such a young age.
However, both stars took a break from their hectic careers and got together for some girly time. Selena posted photographs on her Twitter page showing Taylor strumming on a guitar while she and another friend smile and listen. There are also pictures of Taylor dancing and the pair spreading icing on homemade cupcakes.
Selena, 19, paid tribute to the award-winning pop star as well as another pal who appears in the photos.
"Because you need a best friend that's sings beautifully, another best friend to dance with you and another to...," she wrote before adding a link to the Instagram album on her Facebook page.
Taylor has also been posting photos on Twitter of her unwinding with friends.
The 22-year-old star and three pals - including Glee actress Dianna Agron - decided to celebrate Shirley MacLaine's birthday at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
They dressed up in ladylike gloves, pastel vintage dresses and flower crowns to mark the occasion on Tuesday.
Taylor wore her hair up and looked stunning in a simple cream 50s-style slip dress complete with gloves and pearl earrings.
The four girls posed together holding signs that read Happy Birthday Shirley MacLaine and ordered a special dessert in honour of the 78-year-old actress.
Taylor got to know Shirley after the paired starred in the 2010 movie Valentine's Day.
"We dressed up full-time fancy and went out in celebration of Shirley MacLaine's birthday," Taylor tweeted.
"Had a long day & don't know what to celebrate later...? Because you need a moment to be young? Find your moments..." Dianna added on her Twitter account.
