In a moment captured from several camera angles, the Only Murders in the Building star walks over and whispers something to her longtime bestie, prompting a hilariously shocked expression from the “Anti-Hero” singer. Also gasping at Swift’s side is close friend Keleigh Sperry, who’s married to Top Gun: Maverick star Miles Teller and appeared in Swift’s “I Bet You Think About Me” music video.
The viral clips have left the internet reeling, with many dying to know what two of the most famous women on the planet might’ve been talking about during the award show’s commercial break. Some lip-reading fans even have theories of their own.
“the tea selena gave taylor must be piping hot,” one person tweeted.
“selena being like ‘MHMMMMM’ at keleigh and taylor’s faces oh i need the tea,” wrote another, while a third added, “to be a fly on the wall oh my god.”
Both women attended this year’s Globes as nominees, with Gomez’s Only Murders performance recognized in the best female actor in a TV series, musical or comedy category, and Swift up for cinematic and box office achievement for her Eras Tour concert film. (Gomez lost to The Bear’s Ayo Edebiri, while Barbie was victorious in Swift’s category.) At Gomez’s side that night was her boyfriend Benny Blanco, with whom she posted a behind-the-scenes kissing photo on her Instagram Story after the ceremony.
And while there was no shortage of sweet moments from this year’s awards, there were also a few awkward ones. Namely, when host Jo Koy cracked a joke about the NFL’s extensive coverage of Swift’s presence at Travis Kelce’s Chiefs games, to which she definitely did not smile.
