Selena Gomez wishes Taylor Swift a happy birthday: “I wish some knew how big your heart actually is”

Writing on Instagram, Selena captioned a blurry photo of the two of them together, “I’m glad you were born. You write all the thoughts some aren’t able to articulate. (ME!) Thank you for giving a voice to this world that is authentic and inspiring.”

She added, “I wish some knew how big your heart actually is.. it’s fierce, bold and freaking wild with light. I’m glad you protect that. Love you @taylorswift.”
