Selena Gomez has stuck up for pal Taylor Swift by refusing to clear up what she said at the MTV Video Music Awards.

The singers sat next to each other at the event and Taylor, who briefly dated Harry Styles earlier this year, was reported to have been lip read saying "Shut the f*** up" during the One Direction star's acceptance speech for Best Song Ever as song of the summer.

But when a reporter at the premiere of Selena's new film Getaway asked what her friend had really said, she replied: "Don't try that with me."

She later said she is protective of her friends: "I think girls need to be more supportive of each other. I definitely agree with that. I'm all about that.

"Taylor has been one of those girls. We have been friends for five years. She is very strong. She doesn't care what people think and she inspires me."

Selena won best pop video for Come & Get It at the ceremony on Sunday and said she didn't expect to win.

She said: "So I am watching the beautiful boys, One Direction who are not bad to look at, then they said my name. I looked at Taylor... it was surreal. Because I do put so much work into my music. There's so much talk of everything. But I did put my heart and soul into it so I was really excited. It was great."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant


A friend will tell you about a job opening at their company. This lead will turn into a dead end. Don't set your hopes on this possibility. Instead of looking for another job, concentrate on fulfilling your duties. Tempers are running high. The last thing you want is to catch the attention of an irritable superior. If someone does criticise your work, remain silent. These remarks may be terribly unfair, but defending yourself will only make the situation worse. Breathe deep. This, too, shall pass.More
