Disciples of Mindy Kaling know that a best friend isn’t a person, it’s a tier, and Taylor Swift is the best example of someone who’s filling said category to the brim. Back in February, she told Hollywood sounding board Ryan Seacrest she has 15 “best friends.” Last month, she quickly bonded with numerous Victoria’s Secret models during festivities surrounding the annual fashion show, dubbing herself and said leggy lovelies “Best Friends Forever.” A little quick, Tay?

Like Mindy, Lena Dunham and lovebirds Big Sean and Naya Rivera, Taylor uses social media and her immense star power to her advantage. After casually sending DMs to the Girls creator, Swift and Dunham were spotted dining in Rhode Island over Memorial Day weekend–along with fun.‘s Jack Antanoff, with whom Swift co-wrote “Sweeter Than Fiction” for the film One Chance. There’s nothing wrong with a little networking, but when it comes to Taylor’s world of co-workers, acquaintances, and life partners, who reigns supreme?

Whether they’re industry friends like Selena Gomez, Emma Stone and Ed Sheeran, or hometown pals who knew her when she was actually wearing sneakers and sitting in the bleachers, Taylor rolls deep. Find out who’s made the cut, and earned the esteemed title of “best friend,” by clicking through her closest pals, above.
