Girl power!

With friends like Taylor Swift and Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez has one amazing support system—and she’s well aware of it.

“Taylor’s one of the most inspirational, positive, good-hearted people that I know,” she told Life & Style at her exclusive concert benefiting the U.S. Fund for UNICEF in NYC on Jan. 19. “I met her when she was 18, and this was before Fearless came out. It is absolutely incredible to see somebody so successful and so humble, and I think she’s been a big part of me kind of staying in line.”

As for her Spring Breakers co-star, Vanessa Hudgens, Selena shares, “She’s amazing. I feel like I want to be her. She’s been so great. She’s been such an incredible person. She’s fantastic in this movie and she’s a really good friend.”

Just last week, Justin Bieber’s ex girlfriend opened up about her relationship with Taylor, saying she goes to her whenever she has boy problems—and we bet both ladies have lots to say about that.

“It’s because of having Taylor and Vanessa both older than me, they’ve kind of experienced a little bit more,” she tells Life & Style. “At the same time, we’re experiencing the exact same things, too. It’s just nice to kind of pick up the phone….and have somebody understand and really know what you’re going through. It’s nice. I think that’s the main connection.”

It seems Selena took a pinch of advice from Taylor Swift, who’s famous for getting her revenge through. The 20-year-old brunette beauty sang Justin Timberlake’s “Cry Me a River” (see video below) at her concert after she spoke to us. It was the same song her ex, Justin, covered in November following reports of their first split.

This much is certain: she intends on making 2013 one of her best years yet. Her motto? “Everything happens for a reason,” she shares. “So enjoy every moment.”

The former Disney star is currently working on a new album and says she has about a month-and-a-half left of recording.

“I’ve never recorded this much in my life, but I’m excited to do things that I feel that people are going to be a little taken back and surprised with,” she tells Life & Style.

Now we’ll just have to wait and see if Taylor helps her write a song about Selena's very recent and public break up.
