Met Gala 2016: Selena Gomez reveals who will be her date to the event

Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift will be seen together at the Met Gala 2016.

Selena Gomez revealed that her best friend, Taylor Swift will be her date to the Met Gala 2016. This year the theme of the annual event is Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology.

"[Taylor and I] are going with each other. It's so fun, it's going to be the best. It's kind of like prom for fashion," she told Access Hollywood.

However, the former Disney star did not share the details of her outfit. She said: "I don't want to get in trouble. But you will see! But it's beautiful, it's so cool. And I love going, because everyone just shows up and feels great. I'm [such a fangirl]. I'm just waiting to get off the carpet so I can see what everyone's wearing and go 'yay!'"

Meanwhile, Swift had previously talked about Gomez during an interview with E! News when she was at her Keds event in May 2015. She said: "It's been the longest one I think either of us had really. When your life changes and you become thrust into this really strange whirlwind where what your life is different from what other people think your life is. And your life is commented on and your life is written about and fictionalised and all that. Both of us have kind of stuck it out and hung in there through all the different changes we've gone through."

"Longevity is something you really can find very precious and rare in friendships," Swift added.

The 2016 Met Gala will take place on 2 May at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
