Swift Dodges Chart Battles With Cyrus
Taylor Swift deliberately avoids competing with rival singer Miley Cyrus - because she doesn't want to ruin their friendship.
The teen sensations both enjoy chart success but are such close pals Swift refuses to do battle with the Hannah Montana star.
Swift says, "I've always approached this from the place where I don't compete with other girls. I don't compete with other people in the industry. I compete with myself.
"If I looked at every other girl in the entertainment industry as competition, my life would be really lonely. I wouldn't have some of the coolest friends that I'm so glad I've gotten to know over the last couple of years... It's really awesome to get to hang out with those girls and to call them friends."
