Is there anyone Taylor Swift isn't BFFs with? She hangs out with everyone from sitcom stars like Sarah Hyland from "Modern Family" and to indie darlings like Lena Dunham to fellow pop stars like Selena Gomez. And now, apparently, she's added Lorde to her collection.
In a Rolling Stone profile, Lorde says she often texts Taylor for advice, even about something as minor as which knickknack to buy for her home.
"Taylor's supergood at this stuff," the "Royals" singer says. "She's decorated her own houses for ages."
The two young stars weren't always so lovey-dovey — Lorde once told a reporter that she thought Swift was a bad influence. “Taylor Swift is so flawless, and so unattainable, and I don’t think it’s breeding anything good in young girls [who might think] ‘I’m never going to be like Taylor Swift, why can’t I be as pretty as Lorde?’ That’s f—king bulls—t,” she said.
So how did the two end up BFFs? Because Taylor's a class act, pretty much, and sent Lorde a bouquet of roses when "Royals" hit No. 1. "I was floored," Lorde admits.
Is there anyone Taylor can't win over? I really think she is laying the groundwork for a major showbiz power grab, backed by her cadre of female starlets of every stripe. And I could not love it more.
