Are Taylor Swift and Cara Delevingne Friends?

When it comes to celebrity friendships, a few of Taylor Swift’s have been on-again, off-again. But she seems to have a pretty dedicated set of famous women by her side, including model/actress Cara Delevingne. Here’s a look at their friendship, as well as what the actress has to say about the singer’s latest comments.

Swift and Delevingne are part of different factions of entertainment

Generally speaking, the lives of these two celebrities don’t overlap that much. Delevingne began her career as a model before transitioning into acting. She starred in movies such as Paper Towns, Suicide Squad, and Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.

Swift, meanwhile, is almost exclusively a musician. She did branch out into acting with roles in a select few films, such as Valentine’s Day and The Giver. And she’s returning to the big screen with the upcoming adaptation of the musical Cats, where she portrays Bombalurina.

Delevingne was a member of Swift’s infamous ‘girl squad’

For years, the press couldn’t get enough of Swift’s “girl squad,” whom she hung out with at her Rhode Island estate, or was seen with at parties, award shows, and the like. While it’s really just a case of connected people relating to one another and becoming friends, the media was obsessed, and Swift used that to her advantage on more than one occasion.

You may recall Swift performing at the Victoria’s Secret fashion show in 2013, in which she was able to interact with her model pals like Delevingne. Or the biggest girl squad collaboration of all: Swift’s 2015 music video for her song “Bad Blood,” which featured Delevingne and many, many more of Swifts favorite women.

What’s going on with Swift’s old music?

Speaking of past hits, Swift now has a new issue to deal with. She may have put most of her feuds behind her, but this latest one won’t go away so easily. You see, Swift left Big Machine Records (Scooter Braun’s label), and they now own all of the artist’s master recordings for her first six albums.

But she’s not letting it get her down. Swift recently spoke to Good Morning America, confirming that she plans to rerecord at least some of her old music. “My contract says that, starting [in] Nov. 2020, so next year, I can record albums one through five all over again. I’m very excited about it,” she said.  

Delevingne on Swift’s latest comments

Delevingne herself is, of course, very busy these days. Her new Amazon series Carnival Row is coming out on Aug. 30, 2019. At the premiere, Access Hollywood asked her for her thoughts on Swift’s decision to rerecord her music. 

“I can’t wait to hear it,” she said. “It’s amazing to hear re-recorded stuff, especially when it’s a couple [of] years later as well and I just think it’s, you know, she’s owning it,” she added. “It’s great.” Delevingne said that she’s “very very” excited for Swift in her new venture.
