It seems as though Taylor Swift might actually be the captain of the cheer team after all. She’s been linked with all sorts of ladies recently and seems to be just about everyone’s BFF. Everyone from Sarah Hyland to Jaime King to Selena Gomez to Hailee Steinfeld is apparently on a texting basis with the superstar songstress.
Let’s add one more to Taylor’s address book, shall we? In the new Rolling Stone cover profile on the new “it” girl Lorde, the 17-year-old musical sensation admitted that she texts Taylor for advice!
And it isn’t necessarily advice on her career either -- Lorde told the magazine that she didn’t know what to get her manager for a Christmas gift, so she texted Swift about whether to get a hand-shaped brass bowl or a “minimalist globe table lamp.”
"Taylor's super-good at this stuff," the "Royals” singer said. "She's decorated her own houses for ages."
Lorde (real name: Ella Yelich-O'Connor) apparently became friends with Taylor after the latter sent the teen phenom a bunch of roses when “Royals” hit #1 on the charts. She said that she was “floored,” especially since she had dissed the singer in the past.
She once told a New Zealand reporter, "Taylor Swift is so flawless and so unattainable, and I don't think it's breeding anything good in young girls.”
Taylor had apparently been unaware of the slight, but once she found out, she was a total lady about it. Lorde said Taylor’s reaction was gracious and apparently no bad blood remained between the two. "She was like, 'It's fine. If all you've done is call someone perfect, it's not that bad,'" Lorde remembered.
Aww! I have to admit that it’s nice to hear about two such young stars making headlines for being sweet friends rather than frenemies. Catfights may get you in the gossip rags, but friends are much more important in order to stay grounded -- especially in such a fickle and glitzy industry.
Do you think Taylor and Lorde's friendship is genuine?
