The 'Shake It Off' hitmaker has gushed about her close friend for always being there for her when she needs her and praised her for having "this incredible ability to see all sides of a situation".

Speaking about her pal, Taylor told Harper's Bazaar magazine: "As a friend, Gigi is one of the first people I go to for advice. She has this incredible ability to see all sides of a situation and simplify it for you, to see the complexity of people.

"Gigi's number one rule is to treat people the way she'd want to be treated, so she's on time (or early) to work, says hello to everyone on set, asks them how they are, and actually listens to their response. She is an innately kind and inclusive person who has managed to become a huge power player and businesswoman without ever compromising that."

Meanwhile, the 22-year-old model previously revealed she isn't interested in making new friends as she already struggles to "give attention" to everyone she cares about.

Speaking about how fame affects her friendships, she said: "A lot of interesting things in friends come out [when you're famous]. So, in a way it's good because you learn that it's better to have a few really good friends than tons of friends you aren't really sure about.

"There are people who understand that I love them and who know that when I get back to town I'm going to call them, but sometimes I can't call every day because I'm in weird places. I've lost a lot of friends because I'll get busy for a short period of time, and they're not reaching out, but if I don't reach out, then it's like I've changed.

"The time I do have off, it's not even enough to give everyone I love attention. I'm good with [the friends] I've got."
