Taylor Swift Sends Best Friend Selena Gomez a Clever Birthday Message

Swimming in a sea of unrelated story clips on Taylor Swift's Instagram is a birthday message to best friend Selena Gomez, who turns 26 Sunday (July 22).   

The snapshot, hidden among shout-outs to media outlets praising her Reputation Tour weekend at New Jersey's MetLife Stadium, features a cute birthday cake and a play on words.   

"Will I let distance stop me from celebrating my best friend's birthday?" she wrote.     

And then she answered her own question with an obvious Selena Gomez lyric: "I mean I could but why would I want 2."     

"Gomez or go home," the cake says -- along with Gomez's age, 26, surrounded by a heart.

The "Delicate" singer was full of puns after Saturday night's concert in East Rutherford, where she performed during a rainstorm. Her setlist included surprises like "Fearless" and "Clean," both songs with lyrics about rain. "FULL RAIN SHOW," she alerted her Instagram followers. "Last night we all danced together for 2 hours in the pouring rain - who knows what the Jersey skies will bring us tonight but we’re *ready for it*."
