For Her Birthday, Taylor Swift Received Lorde As Her Newest Bestie

Taylor Swift Birthday Lorde 12-13-13 3

Remember when you were in elementary school, and the most popular girl in your grade switched out best friends regularly because after awhile she’d get bored with her minions?  Right.  Though I’m not sure Taylor Swift would have been one of those girls in my school (which was probs a little too rough for Primrose T. Swift), she’s certainly determined to be that person now, at age 24.

While I’m sure she received many lovely gifts during her garden birthday party (because of course it was a garden party) in Melbourne yesterday, the biggest gift of all was…drumroll, por favor…. Lorde!  That’s right, Lorde and Taylor (not an original pun, but it’s awesome anyway so deal with it) rang in the latter’s 24th birthday surrounded by roses to symbolize the budding of a new friendship.  Because Taylor Swift probably read our post and decided to add a sixteenth celebrity bestie, feminism be damned!

If you look closely, you can see the pleading in Lorde’s eyes: “Help me, this is so awkward, oh please someone get me out of here… so many kittens and doilies. Hellllppppp.”

I just hope this new fakelationship (yes, fake friendships count) doesn’t sway Lorde to abandon her strong, feminist image.  She’s still only 17, after all, which is how Swift likes ‘em… young enough to coerce into her lair of witchcraft and crochet-ery.  If anything, the seven-years-older Swift could learn a thing or two from Lorde – like taking responsibility for your actions through your lyrics and your image, ultimately empowering yourself and your fans.

But that’s a lot to hope for, so until that happens I’ll just enjoy these images of Lorde being uncomfortable until Taylor moves on to bestie number 17.

      Somewhere, Alexis Rhiannon is crying and sticking needles in a Lorde voodoo doll while sobbing “It should have been me. It should have been me…”

      I just love the story of Taylor Swift. How she continues to triumph and accomplished what is humanly possible….AND how she continues to make her critics like you look small.

      It is really fascinating.

      No amount of money in the world can buy that kind of feeling.Join the discussion…

        You know, at least the other writers USUALLY write snarky things and try their best to make these Taylor articles funny, even remotely, but this is just a raging no, like all of Cassandra’s Taylor articles. It’s a disgusting piece and this entire talk of Taylor and Feminism, it’s clear they don’t get what they’re talking about at all. And I mean, clearly they don’t think much of Lorde either if they think she was weak enough to be forced into a party. Such an idiotic article where they managed to make the person they were sort of defending look stupid. For a while I thought they had a legitimate reason to dislike (basically, hate) Taylor, but all their reasons get pushed down by her. I’m just so glad she doesn’t get bogged down by it.

        I like the line ” article where they managed to make the person they were sort of defending look stupid.” It just show what kind of writer she is. Some people are so bitter that they can’t help themselves but to ridicule and make up stories. ( and yes I agree that the other writers at least try to make it funny without being offensive )

        Like I said before, I just love how Taylor continues to triumph and continues to make her critics look small. You can’t buy that kind of feeling.

        The great Frank Sinatra once said :” The best revenge is MASSIVE success ” You can’t argue with success.

        I’m just glad her career is getting bigger and is going from strength to strength.

        If by “career is getting bigger” you mean she’s losing fans and public favor faster than she can run through boyfriends, then yeah. Her fame is skyrocketing!

      Okay. I’m done with this site. This is the most outrageous, just sad, and baised posts I’ve ever read. I was really laughing at your stupidity the entire time. Here’s a tip, try to build a website off facts. NOT your own opinions. Dear lord, this was horrible.

      • Jenni

        Do you mean Dear Lorde?
