Lorde praises Taylor Swift's 'amazing female friendship'

Taylor Swift brought Lorde into "this amazing world of supportive female friendship".

The 'Royals' singer has praised the 25-year-old beauty for being so friendly to her when she kicked off her music career, as she embraced her, despite the fact she didn't have many female pals before they became close.

Speaking about Taylor, Lorde - whose real name is Ella Yelich-O'Connor - said: "I mean, she definitely brought me into this amazing world of supportive female friendship. For me, someone starts talking about boys and I'm like, 'I just don't know what to say.' I'm useless in that capacity and that was why I thought, 'Well, I can't have girl friends (because) I don't know how to talk about boys.' But Taylor just glosses over the fact that I'm terrible at that and she's just like, 'It's OK, I'll love you for your other qualities.'"

The 18-year-old musician - who is currently working on the follow-up to her 2013 debut, 'Pure Heroine' - made the comments during an interview with 'Girls' writer and actress Lena Dunham, who also spoke positively about the 'Bad Blood' hitmaker who she said has made it her mission to show "women are magic".

Speaking in Dazed magazine, she explained: "I feel that Taylor (Swift) has really taken control and said, 'I'm going to get us all together in the same place, I'm gonna make it very clear that friendship is powerful and women are magic and if anybody thinks this is a witches' coven they might be right.' She's just made it her job in a very cool way."
