The birthday girl was made to feel super special this week.
Squad goals, indeed! Lorde received pretty much the best 20th birthday party ever when pal Taylor Swift decided to take it upon herself to organise it. In fact, we'd say this almost beats Kendall Jenner's 21st. Almost; I mean, we're still reeling from the fact a stranger gave Kendall a Rolls Royce.
Lorde turns 20 in style
The 'Team' singer turned 20 on Monday (November 7th 2016) and to celebrate, Taylor took her to Carbone (or ZZ's Clam Bar, reports are vague) in New York City to eat and party. Guests included the likes of Aziz Ansari, Lena Dunham, Tavi Gevinson, Jack Antonoff and Mae Whitman while celebrations included balloons, party hats, cake - the whole shebang.
'Had the best birthday party I've ever had tonight surrounded by my NYC family', Lorde wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of herself with Taylor and Victoria's Secret model Karlie Kloss. 'All organised by Tay who is as she says 'a mom with no kids'. I am your kid and you love me so hard I could burst. Here's to our 3 magic years of best friendship and more moments like this squished between angels.'
26-year-old Taylor also got Lorde (real name Ella Yelich-O'Connor) an adorable painted birthday card, which she snapped on Instagram and captioned: 'Thank you for the music you make, the advice you give, the thoughts you provoke, and the way you've made my life more beautiful since the first day we met up in New York and ate burgers on a park bench and got attacked by squirrels. I. Love. You. So. Much. Ella.'
Lorde took to Facebook to talk about how she feels leaving her teenage years behind finally. 'Tomorrow I turn 20, and it's all I've been able to think about for days', she wrote on Sunday. 'All my life I've been obsessed with adolescence, drunk on it. Even when I was little, I knew that teenagers sparkled. I knew they knew something children didn't know, and adults ended up forgetting.'
