Taylor Swift throws a birthday party for Lorde

Taylor Swift helped Lorde celebrate her 20th birthday on Monday evening (07.11.16).

The 'Royals' hitmaker was joined by some members of Taylor's infamous girl squad to mark the big day and later took to Instagram to gush about the "three magic years of best friendship" she has had with Taylor.

Captioning a photo, she wrote: "Had the best birthday party i've ever had tonight surrounded by my nyc family. all organised by tay who is as she says "a mom with no kids".

"i am ur kid and u 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 (sic)"

Meanwhile, Lorde recently took to Facebook to pen a lengthy essay about taking some time out of the spotlight.

She wrote: "Tomorrow I turn 20, and it's all I've been able to think about for days. I walk around the city, up by the park and by the health food store and down into the subway, this new age hanging in front of my eyes like two of those Mylar balloons that never come down. Can people see it, I wonder, that I'm about to cross over? ...

"Sometime in the last year or so, part of me crossed over. For one thing, I made a very deliberate choice to withdraw for a little while from a public life. I haven't had my hair or makeup done in a year, the free handbags dried up LONG ago, and the paparazzi at the airport are almost always for someone else ...

"I turned inwards to my friends, my family, towards this moment, so I could learn more about who I was, and so I could let this new project show itself to me. And oh my god, it was a colossal year! One for the ages. I maxed out every single emotion I have in the best possible way, the colours still aching behind my eyes like this weird blissful hangover. (sic)"
