Taylor Swift may have lost at the Grammys, but the “All Too Well” singer certainly had a friend in winner Lorde. The two, who have become fast friends, met up at last night’s Grammy Awards marking their status as Hollywood BFFs. “And you know... We're on each other's team. #LORDE #CLEANINGUP #GRAMMYs”Swift posted next to a pic of her and the “Royals” singer.
Lorde later wrote on Twitter: “Very proud of @taylorswift13 tonight. one of the most masterful performers i've seen” Before Sunday’s Grammys, the two had also met up at Clive Davis’ Pre-Grammy party at the Beverly Hilton on Saturday night.
Lorde and Swift were first thought to not be friends when Lorde accidentally seemed to slight the “Red” singer. “Taylor Swift is so flawless, and so unattainable, and I don’t think it’s breeding anything good in young girls,” Lorde said. “‘I’m never going to be like Taylor Swift, why can’t I be as pretty as Lorde?’ That’s fucking bullsh**t.”
Lorde later apologized in a Tumblr post, saying: "ts was the first person i thought of, which i regret. she happens to be good looking, but i think she actually uses her other imperfections in an incredibly powerful and relatable way. taylor swift has a very unique vision, which i admire. i think somewhere along the line also there was a misquote where people got the impression i thought writing about love was shameful. i don’t! i just haven’t found a way of doing it which is powerful and innovative, which is why i don’t.”
The two girls were later seen hanging out in NYC and at Swift’s birthday in December. Lorde revealed in this month’s Rolling Stone that Swift had actually sent Lorde flowers and was completely unaware of the teenager’s accidental insult. "I was floored," Lorde said about Swift’s gesture. Since then, the two have gotten along famously. "She was like, 'It's fine. If all you've done is call someone perfect, it's not that bad.” Now if only Swift can get Lorde and Selena Gomez to get along!
