The Story Behind Blake Lively And Taylor Swift’s Friendship

How Blake became part of Tay's 'girl squad'

It may seem strange that Blake Lively is all of a sudden appearing in Taylor Swift’s girl squad pics at her ‘Taymerica’ party, but this friendship has been going on for a lot longer than you might think.

It all began nine months ago when Blake Lively instagrammed this gorgeous pic, captioned: “…soooo, turns out this WASN’T a video shoot for John Legend’s cover of Bad Blood @lorealparisofficial blew it out for this one. My #pinkobsession is exposed now💖 Ok your turn. I won’t tell! 🙊 #AlsoTurnsOutJohnLegendIsntCoveringBadBlood Time to start a petition!”

Fans of Taylor Swift mistakenly thought she was making fun of Taylor Swift, so Blake felt that she needed to explain herself. She posted this pic, captioned: “Umm whoever thought I was throwin shade clearly doesn’t know I have a “Taylor Swift Please Be My Wife Voo Doo Doll” #obsessed Look how rad she is here making my niece Heather feel like a rock star. Love my Canadian family almost as much as I love Taylor Lively. I mean Swift. Ok, FIIINE we can hyphenate our last names. Xo Blake Swift-Lively 4eva”

So turns out, Blake is actually Taylor’s biggest fan! In fact, a few months later, she was even spotted at one of Tay’s concerts in Brisbane. She was in Australia to shoot her new horror movie, The Shallows.

They must have coordinated their plans, because we also saw this pic appear:–NLoCDvOe/

We even caught them having some fun selfie times with kangaroos!–_dMXx4Lw/?taken-by=blakelively&hl=en

Blake also helped Tay celebrate her birthday by posting this pic with a cute happy birthday message: “There’s a reason ” #friendshipgoals ” was invented because of her. Thank you @taylorswift for the happiness you bring to not only everyone that knows you, but also to those who don’t –you’re the real deal. Happy Birthday!”

Next minute, we see that she’s cozying up to Ryan Reynolds at Taylor’s ‘Taymerica’ party, but we’re not even surprised!

While Blake looks happy as Larry, Ryan Reynolds doesn’t exactly seem thrilled to be there…perhaps Tay has some winning over to do!
