Taylor Swift, 24, is friends with a lot of Hollywood’s elite – from fellow singers, to actors and actresses and even super models and recently it has become evident that 18-year old mega-star Lorde is in Swift’s inner circle of closest friends.
In an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the host asked Lorde how one goes about becoming best friend’s with Taylor Swift and the answer is surprising because it was Swift who started it by sending Lorde flowers.
“She sent me some flowers, which was so nice. She just sent them to my house and said like, ‘Congratulations on everything,’ I was like, ‘God!’ I need to know more'” Lorde explained to Fallon.
She then told him how they met up in New York and quickly bonded over Shake Shack milkshakes, “Which I feel like is kind of a good bonding, a friendship like bonds with those thick-ass milkshakes,” she joked.
Another surprising thing about the self-proclaimed extremely awkward Swift is that she is very funny and often her humor is so dry, it is hard to follow her jokes.
“She’s really funny and people don’t expect it. It’s really dry and you’re almost like, ‘Wait…did I? Is that what you just…Did that just happen?'” Lorde said of Swift joking around.
As well as partying with Lorde at Grammy parties and most recently the American Music Awards, Swift is often seen hanging with her model best friend Karlie Kloss and of course Selena Gomez who Swift is always trying to get to move to New York City.
Swift’s growing group of girlfriends comes as she said she is no longer focusing on dating, which she is notorious for, and is taking time for herself and friends. She recently revealed that, for now, she’s enjoying “being on my own, prioritizing my girlfriends, my family and my music above everything else and trying things I never thought I’d try.”
