In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Swift explained how the album was an evolution for Gomez. "This is the first time I’ve heard her truly channel the details of her emotional experience," Swift said. "I just thought, Wow, she’s finally allowing herself to let other people know things aren’t always OK. You can be vulnerable and lonely and independent and strong and brave and scared all at once."

It's clear that Swift is willing and eager to promote her friend's work.
