Photos of Taylor Swift and Lorde frolicking on the beach and shopping for something other than good sense and dancing abilities indicate that the two songwriters are becoming close friends.
Via Us Weekly, who called the pair this generation’s “Thelma and Louise” (oh God):
Swift Instagrammed a photo with her new bestie with the caption, “Bare feet in the sand on Saturday.”
The fast friends appeared to be coordinating their outfits, with dark bottoms, button-up tops, and shades.
It looks like Swift may have had a fun sleep over with the New Zealand native in her multi-million dollar Beverly Hills mansion. Because on Sunday, Feb. 23, they were spotted out and about together for a second time, this time shopping in L.A.’s star-friendly Brentwood neighborhood.
An unlikely pair? Maybe not so much. They’re both human girls under the age of 25 who, uh, make music that falls in the loosely defined “pop” genre. Swift is as much of a serial bestie as she is a dater…
And think about it, she could be her mentor and warn her of the woes of dating John Mayer. (Perhaps she’s revised that “Dear John” hate speech that failed to work on Katy Perry.)
I dunno, as much as I like Taylor, having a 17-year-old best friend at age 24 is a little weird, no?
