During an appearance on "The Talk", Gomez revealed the valuable guidance Swift recently shared with her in private, reports eonline.com.

"She was actually at my house the other day and we were sitting by the fire and I was talking about relationships and business in my life and she just kind of looked at me and was like, 'Selena, if you're the smartest person in the room, I think you're going to be in the wrong room'," Gomez said.

"She thinks I should constantly surround myself with people who are going to make me better, that are going to challenge and motive me. It kind of stuck to me. I want to surround myself with those people," she added.

The performers, who have been friends for years, always have each other's back. And when it comes to those rumours that the two once feuded, Gomez says don't believe them.

"She supports me and never judges me for anything," she said.

Though the two can't seem to agree on whether or not Gomez should move to New York permanently.
