Taylor Swift is far from believing Justin Bieber is a good luck charm. According to, the 24-year-old songstress has dropped Selena Gomez as a friend after the Disney starlet rekindled things with Bieber. The “I Knew You Were Trouble” singer is disgusted by their relationship. During the summer, tweeted a birthday post to Selena, referencing her as “the closest thing I’ve ever had to a sister.” However, this is not the first strike. The source also claimed that Gomez used Swift’s good friend Ed Sheeran as a rebound last June to ruffle Bieber’s feathers. “After Selena pulled that move, Taylor started distancing herself,” said the source.

Cupid’s Advice:

No one ever said being a friend is easy, especially when it is time to pitch in decision advice about relationships. The conversation can go either two ways, good or bad. Here are some ways to help your friend out without being offensive:

1. Remain courteous: Take into consideration your friend’s feelings at all times. There is a way to be honest without delivering a harsh tone. Let him or her know of the signs in their relationship that may concern you, but do not repeatedly bring up this conversation. Your friend is completely aware of your possible worry. It is up to them to try to ease your apprehension.

2. Give all ears: Keep an open mind and be understanding of their perspective. The less interruptions, the better. However, do not be afraid to give your input — talk about your past experience(s) that are relatable. Avoid over sharing and being overbearing. Remember, you are there to help.
