Taylor Swift and Sabrina Carpenter’s friendship has come a long way over the years.

Before the pair became the besties they are today, Carpenter was a longtime fan of Swift. Before dropping tracks like “Nonsense” and “Espresso,” Carpenter posted covers of Swift’s songs on her YouTube page, including “Picture to Burn” and “White Horse.”

In addition to covering Swift’s music, Carpenter also attended several of Swift’s concerts. The former Disney star finally got the chance to connect with the Grammy winner backstage at one of her Reputation shows.

“She had her cats with her,” Carpenter recalled of meeting Swift for the first time in a January 2024 interview with Who What Wear. “I have older sisters, so if anything, it felt like that type of a relationship.”

After that initial meeting, the duo grew close as Carpenter began to make a name for herself in the music industry. After attending the Eras Tour herself in 2023, Carpenter was announced as one of Swift’s openers for her international leg.

“As much as people want to believe you’re tuned into every little thing, I’m not because I’m constantly working,” she said to Rolling Stone. “In that scenario, I’ve been very, very communicative with her about that situation, and I just love her so much and support her till the end. So it was no weirdness for me, but I know people will just say things because that’s all they have time to do.”
