There are birthday parties, and then there are Taylor Swift parties. (Who could forget her 4th of July festivities last summer?) Lorde is lucky enough to get the best of both worlds. She and Tay have been close friends for three years now, so the 1989 star made her a handmade card and threw her a 20th birthday bash fit for a Pure Heroine.
"Had the best birthday party I've ever had tonight surrounded by my NYC family," Lorde wrote on Instagram in the wee hours of Wednesday morning (November 8). "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."
The night was a star-studded affair, which comes as zero surprise considering that Swift brought Selena Gomez, Hayley Williams, and more to the birthday party she threw for Fifth Harmony's Camila Cabello last year. This time, Karlie Kloss, Lena Dunham, and Aziz Ansari came together to celebrate with Lorde.
And what's a birthday party without a birthday cake?
Who knows what Lorde — her real name is Ella — is wishing for here, but cross your fingers that it's her upcoming second album.
