Supermodel Lily Aldridge praises Taylor Swift: 'She really has my back'

Lily Aldridge has revealed that her friendship with superstar Taylor Swift is an incredibly important one to her. 

During a new interview with NET-A-PORTER's weekly digital fashion magazine The EDIT, the beauty explained that she value's Swift's friendship because they truly look out for and support each other:

"Taylor just loves her friends, and so do I. My girls are my girls. We're such a close-knit group of women, and the most special thing about our group of friends - and it extends so far - is that we all have each other's backs. It's about supporting and being happy for each other. When you lift up the people around you, it elevates you as well. Bringing everybody up is the way I hope the whole world changes."

Aldridge, who has a three-year-old daughter with Kings of Leon rocker Caleb Followill, added that she doesn't like reading mean or hurtful comments on social media as she sees them all: "People say such mean things to me on Instagram, and I'm like, 'I see this! I read every comment!' They're so hurtful."

"You see it and think, 'Why would you say that to anyone?' It's heart breaking that people say these kinds of things to each other. It blows my mind ... I try to be authentic and post pictures of myself and my job. I keep my family stuff as private as possible, but there are some things that I want to post, like a cute picture of my daughter that's too precious not to share.
