    Taylor Swift’s inner circle is one of the coolest crews around, so it’s no wonder why most people would practically do anything to hang with her posse for an evening of girl talk and bonding. But alas, joining Swift’s girl gang is not the easiest feat in the world. Luckily, we can all live vicariously through Tavi Gevinson’s heart-to-heart interview with Swift in the lastest issue of ELLE.

    This isn’t the first time that Gevinson has discussed her close friend at length. In fact, she even jokes that she has “littered—excuse me, adorned—the Internet with Taylor Swift analyses” since she was 14 years old. In this convo, Swift and Gevinson dish on romance, songwriting, and lessons learned from their mutual friend Lena Dunham. At her boldest yet, Swift has proven that she is so much more than a pop star in a princess dress—and she’s one of the best friends a girl can have.

    Read the full piece at ELLE and flip through the gallery to read our favorite quotes from the interview, including some advice on how to get over heartbreak.

    “And you know how it is when you’re going through heartbreak. A heartbroken person is unlike any other person. Their time moves at a completely different pace than ours. It’s this mental, physical, emotional ache and feeling so conflicted. Nothing distracts you from it. Then time passes, and the more you live your life and create new habits, you get used to not having a text message every morning saying, “Hello, beautiful. Good morning.” You get used to not calling someone at night to tell them how your day was. You replace these old habits with new habits, like texting your friends in a group chat all day and planning fun dinner parties and going out on adventures with your girlfriends, and then all of a sudden one day you’re in London and you realize you’ve been in the same place as your ex for two weeks and you’re fine. And you hope he’s fine.”
    “There’s no riding off into the sunset, because the camera always keeps rolling in real life.”
    “I’m not going to sit there and say, ‘Oh, I wish I hadn’t had corkscrew-curly hair and worn cowboy boots and sundresses to awards shows when I was 17; I wish I hadn’t gone through that fairy-tale phase where I just wanted to wear princess dresses to awards shows every single time.’ Because I made those choices. I did that. It was part of me growing up.”
