Taylor Swift And Blake Lively

Taylor Swift has always flaunted her gal pals; one of her closest is Blake Lively. There is no one person who is unaware of the closeness of these two. At this point, they are in that stage of their friendship where, if you do not know the whereabouts of Lively, you would assume that she had joined Swift for her Eras Tour. 

Taylor Swift and Blake Lively are practically sisters now. Blake stayed close to her even when Tay’s entire girl gang disbanded her all those years ago. They have always been there for one another. Blake recently took some time off when she watched Travis Kelce play the Super Bowl, who is the new man in Tay’s life.

Let’s look back at their friendship over the years

Their friendship can be traced back to 2015, when they first connected. It started when Black shared a photo from the L’Oreal campaign, which had a snide reference to “Bad Blood,” which was a star-studded music video by Swift in the caption. 

Even though the fans considered the caption shady, Lively cleared things up immediately and mentioned what a big Swiftie she was. Eventually, they met up one day in Australia and enjoyed an entire day together, and the rest is history. 

Blake and Ryan, her husband, have supported Taylor and her music from the beginning of their friendship. They have a deep friendship that Blake’s daughter, James, is the baby voice in Reputation’s “Gorgeous” intro. 

Tay has also featured Inez and Betty Renolds in the trilogy of songs, which shows the love triangle of a fictional folklore. Blake Lively even directed a music video for Red in 2021 (Taylor’s Version.) Let’s look back at their friendship over the years.
