Selena Gomez Defends BFF Taylor Swift, Dances To “TiK ToK”

Professional award collector Taylor Swift may be facing a backlash from Fearless-weary music fans—and, indirectly, even from some of her peers—after her spotty Grammy Awards performance, but Selena Gomez is sticking by her perpetually-single pal’s side, no matter what. MTV asked Gomez what her thoughts on all the flak Taylor’s catching are. Watch her response—and her dance routine to Ke$ha’s current #1 single—after the jump.

“She won four Grammys. That’s amazing,” Selena said to MTV about her friend Taylor Swift. “That’s what she’s honoring and that’s what I’m proud of her for. So that’s all that matters.”

Well, she told them! Selena has been doing the rounds to promote her album Kiss And Tell and latest single “Naturally.” The other day she hit up Kidd Kraddick In The Morning, where Gomez and the radio show’s J-Si decided to have a dance party with a young fan named McKenna. Selena’s song selection for the kid to shake it to? “TiK ToK.”

“Mommy, why can’t I brush my teeth with a bottle of Jack like Ke$ha?”
